No, it's from a 2nd floor window (we got married at a stately home & garden!)
Looked chaotic on the ground but worked to get the heart shape!

Hello Mrs. Sugar,
Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful wedding-pictures with us...
...You both look very happy and so very elegant !
... With the help of Mr. Google I have tried to decipher
to which clan the green tartan belongs ... (is it MacDonald ?)
... but there are quite a few different answers provided ...
... May you both share a wonderful future together
and I send you my kind regards and all the best
from Kristina. :grouphug;
