An Autumn Black Tie Wedding

With the elements outside my window going for a decidedly grey turn as I sit to create this piece, today's magical celebration inside a beautifully restored and converted barn in October is giving me all the warm and cozy autumnal feelings I need.


Wherever you're, I hope it will the same for you, too. This is the wonderful wedding of Nadim, who both operate in advertising. Justine is an account manager, and Nadim works in strategic planning, plus they celebrated their marriage on 27 October 2019, around the coast just beyond St. Andrews, Scotland.

From the boutique online, Justine chose her beautifully romantic casual wedding dresses, using its striking floral lace embroidery and soft tulle overskirt. I love how you're able to see the lace design underneath the layers of dreamy tulle.

"I loved my dress because of its simplicity and natural flow on me. It would be a romantic dress, and that's what I fell deeply in love with. I also wore an embroidered veil."

"Because it had been autumn and Hallowe'en was right around the corner, we chose flowers that brought a rustic country feel to the wedding. Because it had been almost Halloween, pumpkins were key features."

Groom Nadim looked incredibly smart inside a burgundy tuxedo with contrasting black lapels along with a black velvet bow tie. This splendid attire is made for him by a Dubai-based designer – sadly not one other detail was supplied.

There would be a spectacular ceremony backdrop, full of seasonal beauties – evergreens, branches of turning autumn leaves, berries, grasses, and pumpkins.

Justine was accompanied on the aisle by her father, to some piano version of Coldplay's Yellow, and also the couple's ceremony was conducted with a bishop in the Syriac Orthodox Church.

"We met at the office, we dated for three years, and were engaged for just one year before getting married."

I love how Justine and Nadim's photographer captured the gorgeous atmosphere during the day in this beautiful number of images, in the cozy glow of Kinkell Byre's interior, towards the fading autumn light and rich colors of the year as Justine and Nadim took a stroll post-ceremony.

Delicious food was made, and there was also a table of various Scotch whiskies for guests to assist themselves.

"We decided on a four-tiered semi-naked cake by. We chose it since it fit the theme, and looked perfect around the wooden barrel that people placed it on."

Words of Wedded Wisdom

"Try to possess a consistent theme throughout, and become prepared for last-second hiccups because things are inevitable, yet it's important to let this stuff go by, and ensure you enjoy the wedding as much as possible."
