Jenn + Naomi | Mitchell Library/Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum

Jewish/Scottish fusion queer wedding

We had been really looking forward to Jennifer and Naomi’s wedding ever since the Skype conversation with them both. We met up for a coffee and cake and knew instantly their wedding was going to be a unique and personal. It turned out to be a non – traditional, personalised, one of its kind Jewish – Scottish fusion queer wedding.

Th Mitchell Library was their choice for the wedding ceremony and Cantor Lisa Segal their officiant. It was an egalitarian Jewish ceremony, beautifully crafted by the couple and their cantor. Before the ceremony, Jenn and Naomi were asked by Cantor Lisa to write the love letters to each other. Some parts of their love letters were carefully chosen by Lisa and her husband and written into a dialogue. The one another heard their letters for the first time during the ceremony. To see their smiles and hear their laughs was so emotional and priceless.

The wedding had many unique, fun and DIY elements. The Chuppah was one of them, another one was a painted Ketubah. And, let’s not forget Jenn and Naomi’s gorgeous outfits. They both looked stunning: Jenn in her wedding dress and vintage jewellery pieces and Naomi in a bespoke suit and a flower crown.

After the ceremony, we drove to the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum for the evening reception. The room with its arty vibe, wild flowers, table decorations and cake, was a perfect backdrop for the party. O yes, the cake. It looked so delicious!

The evening part had also many Scottish and Jewish elements, including the Hora and Scottish ceilidh dancing. Everyone had fun and the whole day was a feast of love and inclusiveness. It was about Jenn and Naomi, them as a couple, their friends, families and loved ones. We love how they put together an event that was an expression of them both. For us, it was a privilege to be there and document all! No wonder their celebration got featured in Rock n’ Roll Bride and if you would like to know more about their magical day, click here.
