Michael McCulloch and Heather Carroll

Heather Carroll and Michael McCulloch were joyfully united in a traditional Scottish hand-fasting marriage ceremony on June 10, 2017.

Heather is the daughter of Cheryl and Fred Carroll of East Lyme and Michael is the son of Christine and James McCulloch of Dumfries, Scotland, U.K.

The ceremony and reception took place at the historical Hotel du Vin in Glasgow, Scotland. Heather was attended by Loren Puzier of Halfmoon, N.Y. and Nicole Fontaine of Windsor Locks. Heather was given in marriage by her father and her mother.

The bride was resplendent in a 1930s style bias-cut wedding gown, with hair styled to match the era. Her headpiece was a Juliette-cap wedding veil, restyled from her mother’s veil worn 35 years earlier. Heather’s grandmother’s wedding pearls, and a bouquet representing both sides of the Atlantic with New York State roses, Scottish thistles, peonies, and feathers, completed her ensemble. Michael, along with his two best men, and the fathers of the bride and groom, were strikingly attired in traditional Scottish kilts of various tartan plaids in shades of blue, gray or brown.

The couple enjoyed a celebratory wedding trip to Japan.

Michael received his PhD from Strathclyde University, in Glasgow. He is a physicist at the company he owns, Acadia System, in Glasgow, U.K. Heather, a graduate of East Lyme High School, recently was awarded her PhD in art history from the University of Edinburgh, and now teaches there, as well as for the National Galleries of Scotland.

The couple’s home is in Stirling, Scotland, U.K.
