Tamsyn and Jamie met during a charity clunker car race from London to Mongolia. Both ditched by their racing partners in the inter-country trek, the pair met and became partners in the race and now, in life. It's a pretty amazing story, and you can read more of it at Archibald Photography's blog.
But now we are talking about their wedding which included an electric blue gown, and featured a first sword fight instead of a dance. Mark from Archibald Photography photographed it and has the details, but here are the gorgeous highlights from the event at The Royal College of Physicians in Edinburgh.
The couple had the wedding at The Royal College of Physicians. Tamsyn told the team at Archibald that “it has an ‘Alice in Wonderland' quality; everywhere you go a contrasting style and colour unfolds before you, and as Jamie put it, we wandered round like ‘twa bairns the night afore Christmas'.” That's pretty much how I feel looking at the photos.
Tamsyn's mum designed and made all the bouquets, buttonholes/boutonnières, bridesmaid's fascinators, table plans and markers, and bookmark place settings. Each guest had a place setting with their own quote on it.
Neither Tamsyn nor Jamie are dancers, so they decided to choreograph a sword fight instead! Tamsyn used to fence internationally, so it wasn't too unusual for her. They started slow dancing to a mushy tune and then launched into the fight to the Pirates of Caribbean theme.
