In which I am married

After months of posts about Lego cakes and wedding planning, and then month of not posting because wedding planning and Lego building I am happy to announce that I got married last week! We are back from 2 weeks away, so I have plenty of posts and photos to share for a while yet!
It's funny when coming to write this post it feels a little like when I sat down to write my speech the evening before the wedding at about midnight, after chopping limes for the Pimms, not quite sure what to say, and how to capture it all in a blog post. However, I am not going to produce a speech this time!

Although I love to talk, and I have a lot of wonderful memories. I thought I'd just share some of the photos and add a few notes and how they speak for themselves.We don't have all the official photos yet (so no Lego cakes images to share either!) but I am sure I will post more when we get them. I do love looking at these as it was an utterly beautiful and wonderful day.

Milkshake toasts!
As for the fashion notes, my dress was custom made by Lady JoJos 1950s boutique in Edinburgh, my headband and all origami bouquets were made by me!
All these photos were taken by the utterly wonderful Malcolm and Naomi of Mustard Yellow Photography, who were more than just photographers, they were key to the success of the day and I couldn't reccommend them enough! 


  1. Ahhhhhh congratulations Ruth! That's so exciting! You are such a beautiful bride and look so incredibly happy :). The milkshake toasts were a great touch!
