Renna and Steve: Aikwood Tower

Renna and Steve had a very special wedding day surrounded by their family and friends at Aikwood Tower in the Scottish Borders.
Steve and his groomsmen stayed at nearby Broadmeadows House the night before, where the bride and groom hosted a drinks reception for all their guests.
Aikwood Tower was exclusively Renna and Steve’s for their whole wedding weekend, which meant we were able to make full use of the stunning surroundings for some truly beautiful photographs.
Renna and Steve’s day was full of personal touches that they had designed and made themselves; “We tried to incorporate our hobby of DIY and making things into the wedding. We created candle holders, the table plan and the arch we got married under meaning we could personalise a lot of the decor. The next day, a lot of the guests took our decor home and it is nice to see them in the homes of friends and family and even meant we could keep some to decorate our new home!”
Their favourite moment of the day was actually the wedding photographs; “It was so nice to have some quiet time just the two of us and because we knew what to expect from the pre-wedding shoot, we were very relaxed.”
Their advice to brides and grooms is to “set a time where you switch off from organising and just enjoy the day. Ours was the evening before the wedding.”

What they say:  Ed & Matt have captured our wedding day perfectly.  They make a great duo and really know what they’re doing.  We wanted to capture our wedding day in a natural way and their style suited this perfectly; nothing overly posed.

From early days planning to the main event Ed was on the ball and offered great advice the whole way (a pro at managing guests!).  The pre-wedding shoot really helped make us more comfortable with how the wedding day photos would run.

Both Ed and Matt are ridiculously creative and had loads of suggestions for fun shots. We’ve no idea how they even spotted half of the things they did! Thank you!
