Real Bride: Emma

We’re looking back at this lovely couple Emma & Ewan, and the beautiful wedding photos from their big day back in October at Saint Andrew’s Leckie Church, followed by their reception at Peebles Hydro.

This was the most gorgeous autumnal wedding, where the rain showers were handled in style with bridal appropriate brollies and so many happy smiles. Surrounded by autumn leaves, the couple walked around the scenic grounds of Peebles Hydro after their ceremony, sharing special moments which were beautifully captured by Natalie Martin (Story of Love Photography). She captured the warm, joyful, family feel of their day so well which really made it difficult choosing our favourite images!

Our bride Emma looked stunning in her Jessica Grace (Brisbane) bridal gown which she paired with a custom-made lace edged veil from the La Novia collection. She said that as soon as she tried her dress on with us she instantly knew it was the one. She told us “the alterations were great, the whole experience was fantastic and just helped make the planning of the wedding a wonderful experience. I felt so comfortable on my wedding day and had lots of compliments on my dress. I loved my dress! Thank you so much!”

We loved working with Emma and want to create a memorable, joyful experience for every bride who steps into our Edinburgh bridal boutique. Emma looked so elegant in her wedding dress and finished off her look with delicate pearl jewellery and a simple ivory and natural foliage bouquet by Stems.

Congratulations again to Mr & Mrs Murdoch, and best wishes from the La Novia team.

Real Bride: Catherine

 Dress: Clementina with matching bolero by Liliana Dabic
Venue: McKee Barracks/ Tankardstown House
Photographer: Livia Figueiredo 
Florist: A lovely family effort by the mothers of the bride & groom
Hair/Make-up: Powder Room Girls, Dublin


This beautiful, festive wedding warmed us up! It was a lovely traditional affair, and with Ross and Catherine both being army officers, they chose to have a military wedding. It was held at McKee Barracks in Dublin, which made a gorgeous characterful venue allowing for a military union with traditional touches, which were beautifully captured by their photographer Livia Figueiredo. The couple completed the  wedding ceremony through the saber arch surrounded by happy friends and family, before being transported by a lovely vintage Rolls-Royce to the reception at Tankardstown House where they enjoyed more stunning photo opportunities in the surrounding gardens and grounds.

With all the smart military regalia, bridesmaids in green and the many stylish guests, it is safe to say there were some sharp dressers in this bridal party; and the bride and groom completely stole the show, with Ross even getting an outfit change in for the reception where he switched to a traditional kilt. For the ceremony, he looked the part in full military green uniform which was perfectly complimented by Catherine’s choice of the Clementina dress by Liliana Dabic. The vintage style champagne lace over luxury Duchess satin give this gown the wow-factor; scattered gold and silver embellishments make this gown something a little different and gave our bride a glamorous look with a full bridal ballgown silhouette.

Catherine told us she loved every second she spent wearing this wedding dress and we are thrilled to see how perfect she looked on the day. We helped her add some personal touches to her look, pairing this strapless gown with a matching bolero for extra coverage. Her long double layer veil was a nice addition for the traditional ceremony and we love the simple pearls she wore to match the beading in her bridal gown. For her bridal make-up Catherine, kept it fresh and natural and her hair was done in a modern chignon style, both by the Powder Room Girls based in Dublin.

Another beautiful La Novia real bride! We are delighted for the happy couple and wish them all the best.
