I had the absolute pleasure of meeting this new family over the Christmas break. Little baby Mila was barely a month old and already had absolutely everyone besotted with her (myself included) but of course no one more than her mum and dad, Nina and Tristan.
There had been quite a bit of travel involved with the day’s event. Nina’s parents had traveled over from Michigan, USA to spend Christmas with their newest granddaughter. Nina and Tristan live in London and had come up to Scotland to spend Christmas with Tristan’s Edinburgh based family. A wonderful way to spend the holidays, with both sides of little Mila’s family getting to know each other and enjoying Scotland’s uncharacteristically good weather!
We all met on the sunniest of early afternoons at the incomparable Prestonfield Hotel, done up to its usual breathtaking standard for Christmas. If you ever get the chance to visit over the holiday season, it’s well worth the effort. With real Christmas trees done in traditional Georgian style, huge floral displays and the deep rich colours that Prestonfield is already famous for, the entire place is meant to celebrate Christmas in.
I really enjoyed getting to know all of Mila’s family and I hopefully gave them photos of their experience together that they’ll treasure forever. Enjoy this little peak into our relaxing afternoon at Prestonfield Hotel!
