Teri and Michael were our final April couple and we were thrilled to join them, their daughter Lily,and family and friends to celebrate their marriage at The Marriott, Dyce.
Teri and Michael have been together for a number of years, having met on the bus from Yates to Amadeus on a night out! Teri tells us that it took them about 8 months to get together after numerous advances from Michael and a lot of family speculation!
We asked Teri to tell us about the proposal. The couple got engaged on 29th February 2008 which was a leap year. Teri had been threatening to propose if Michael didn’t! Michael, however, had other ideas and made Teri walk up to the top of Craigendarroch Hill in Ballater on a cold and windy day where he proposed. Teri admits it was a struggle, but well worth it when Michael popped the question. What a lovely memory to have.
David Pattullo, a Humanist Celebrant conducted the ceremony. Teri and Michael created their own vows, as they wanted to make the ceremony more personal and chose different vows to say to each other.
The best piece of advice received during the planning was to just enjoy every moment of the day. Teri and Michael did try, but found that the day passes so fast, leaving them feeling slightly dazed, and that was with little alcohol they admit!
We asked what the best part of their wedding was, and Teri says that it was the entire day and that they couldn’t pinpoint one particular thing. She thought that the ceremony was brilliant, the speeches funny and touching and that the evening was great fun. Teri loved the Chevy as their wedding car – we thought that was pretty cool too! Teri and Michael loved sharing the day with their friends and family. Teri thought that their daughter Lily looked beautiful, and we think so too!
We will be meeting Teri, Michael, and Lily again quite soon, as we are booked to photograph Teri’s sister Jacqui’s wedding in June!
All of us here at Rubislaw Studio wish Michael, Teri and Lily every happiness in the future.
