Amanda and Neil’s Wedding

The Gig Loving Couple

This wedding was a celebration for a couple that care deeply for each other.

They have a very special strong bond that many of us search for all our life.

The are each others best friend as well as the love of their lifes.



Great marriages don’t happen… 

happen by luck or by accident.

They result from a consistent investment of time,

mutual respect

and a rock-solid commitment between couples.

Love is …

overcoming obstacles,
facing challenges,
holding on and never letting go.

Love is a short word,

easy to spell,
difficult to define, and
impossible to live without.

Date & Venue

Schivas Steading was the venue for Amanda and Neils’s wedding in May 2022.

A stunning venue for a wedding, complete with accommodation for your guests right on site.

Set in a stunning location in Aberdeenshire, surrounded by fields and nature you couldn’t ask for a nicer setting for a wedding ceremony.

Amanda and Neil were such a chilled couple to work with, both involved in the planning of their wedding.

They love a Gig and a bit of travel, and have their lovely fur baby Peggy to spoil to.

And Peggy got to be part of the wedding day to.

wedding party

 Their wedding party were such good fun.

Willie Amanda’s best friend walked her down the aisle, and the matron of honour was the best Woo Hooer I’ve had a ceremony.

And the fact that most of the family were all together for the few days of the wedding made it all the more special for everyone.

Amanda and Neils remit for the day was chilled, bit of honour and all about their love and their family.

Which we achieved. The ceremony had some serious bits and some humour, which matched the couple perfectly.

One of my favourite photos from their wedding is the huge smile on Neils’s face as Amanda arrived beside us, speaks volumes of the love of each other.

Their Story

first date

Their first date was after a few weeks chatting online.

They met for a walk on Aberdeen beech on their first date and hit it off right away.

This couple were meant to find each other.


Neil had planned the proposal to happen on his last day on onshore leave.

So they took a wee walk to their favourite beach walk and whilsting sitting admiring the view on their favourite bench, he got down on one knee and did the deed.

the family

Neil and Amanda’s family consists of the 2 of them and Peggy, their fur baby who means the world to them.

I’m pretty sure there will be many more gigs as Mr and Mrs Reid in the future.

5 Stars. Would definitely recommend Mary as your celebrant.

From the first meeting we knew Mary was the celebrant for us.

Excellent service from start to finish.

Mary really took her time to get to know us, which made for a lovely personalised ceremony.

Definitely our Celebrant angel. Thanks again for making our day so special.
