The Allure of the John Lewis Home Department

Category : Wedding Gift Lists

When we got married, like a lot of couples these days, we had already lived together for a while. We had the pots and pans, the bed linen, an abundance of towels and figured we didn’t need anything else for our home (how wrong were we?!)

Looking back now – as much as we LOVED our honeymoon – it’s something we’d have probably splurged on anyway. Yet, when it comes to the fancy blender, a decent coffee machine, a new bed or a fancy mirror for the living room we hold off (and in some cases still are holding off). Currently off on maternity leave, I’ve been doing a lot of wandering, mostly around the shops given the horrific weather and more and more I seem to find myself in the home section.

It’s nearly Christmas and top of my list is a sewing machine and a new coffee machine.

I can now totally see the attraction in a wedding list. There, I said it. I’ve just realised, I MUST be getting old.

Iona & Ian – Polwarth Parish Church, Edinburgh

Category : Real Weddings

Every now and then you get sent photos that make you realise just how nice it is when a couple personalise their big day. With small touches that reflect them or their life together in some way. Ahh all is right again.

Last year I posted Iona and Ian’s engagement shoot and I’m pleased that Wilson McSheffrey, Scottish based wedding photographers, have shared the couples wedding photos too!

Below, they share some info on shooting the day;

“Last summer seems like such a long time ago, but at this time of year we like to have a look back at some of the fantastic weddings we covered the previous year.

One of our favourite couples were Iona and Ian who were married at Polwarth Parish Church in Edinburgh last June. Keeping their photography coverage simple Andrew and Emmett were there from Iona’s arrival at the church through to just before their meal. This was very much in keeping with their delightfully low key and relaxed celebrations which included Iona’s stunning vintage dress and home made champagne.


Iona and Ian were also one of those fantastic couples who were up for anything and some of our favourite shots were taken on the canal next to the church. We loved the fact that Iona was not afraid to get in one of the boats!


We are now enjoying working on their album and can’t wait for them to see it!”

I’m sure they will be delighted – thanks again for sharing!
