An Aberdeenshire couple celebrated their wedding in true north-east style – with a wedding cake made of butteries.
Andrew and Kirsty Stewart tied the knot at the Meldrum House hotel at Oldmeldrum in front of family and friends from as far afield as Canada.
Mr Stewart had previously joked with his friend Dianne Smith about having a rowie wedding cake.
Ms Smith, who is the sales and marketing manager for J G Ross Bakers in Inverurie, decided to make the request a reality.
She said: “I wanted to surprise Andrew and Kirsty. We have been friends with the couple for a long time and Drew has always been known for his sense of humour and quirkiness, so when he mentioned it as a joke I couldn’t resist taking it to the next level.
“He never mentioned it in the few weeks before the wedding so I knew I had to surprise them.
“When I arrived to set it up at Meldrum House, the excitement from the staff and guests of the hotel who saw it confirmed I had done the right thing.”
The couple, from Pitmedden, had already arranged a wedding cake to be made by the mother of one of the bridesmaids, so the buttery cake was an extra treat.
The three-tiered delight equated to almost 54 butteries.
The groom said: “It was the most amazing, unique wedding cake ever. It acted as breakfast and a hangover cure the next day all in one.”
