Real Opus Atelier Bride | Courtney

Updated: Mar 19

After their planned destination wedding was cancelled due to Covid, our beautiful Berta Bride Courtney married Gavin in an intimate beach ceremony on the Scottish island of Tiree, which the couple organised in just 5 weeks with the help of family and friends.

How We Met

I first met Gavin when he came in to have his haircut at the salon I worked at , after 9 months and many flirty appointments he finally asked me out ! We had 3 special months of dating, but I had already planned and booked a year-long trip to Australia. Leaving was heartbreaking, but we still kept in touch and after 4 and half years of leading separate lives I decided it was time to come home. We met up in Sri Lanka for a 2-week holiday, which on reflection was a bit crazy after so many years apart, but we hit it off straight away and the rest is history.

The Proposal

Gavin proposed on our one-year anniversary in our apartment in London, I came home from work to find candles, fairy lights, rose petals, Polaroids of us scattered on the floor and Gavin on one knee on the living room floor. I instantly started crying and didn't hesitate to say Yes! We then went to see Gerry Cinnamon that night and travelled to Glasgow the next day so that we could share the news and tell our family in person.
