Laura Nicoll of Innerleithen and her fiance, Peter Aitchison, were welcomed to the Carfraemill Lodge, near Lauder, by owner Jo Sutherland, left, and the hotel’s manager, Susan Thorburn, after Laura won our competition for a free wedding, worth £3,600, which includes wedding pictures by Galashiels photographer Sheila Scott Photography.
Laura told us: “When I got the call to say we had won the competition, I was speechless – we could never have dreamed we would be so lucky. It is a beautiful venue and the surroundings are perfect. We are over the moon!
“Susan and Jo have been great, very welcoming and we have been looked after very well so far. I am so excited about our upcoming wedding and, thanks to Carfraemill, everything will be taken care of.”
