Inspiration

Amazing - just look at those hanging flowers in the marquee for this Scottish celebration! A village church ceremony was followed by the stunning reception in a field across from their family holiday home, somewhere that already holds fond memories now holds even greater ones. The bride wore a fitted vegan wedding dress and the food served was all vegan too, something that was very important! All 14 (yes 1-4!) bridesmaids (inc. one bridesman) looked stunning in Motee Maid mismatched dresses. The bridesman who, like the groom, looked dapper in his kilt. True to the Scottish traditions there was a ceilidh that got all the guests on their feet dancing away and building up an appetite, luckily a pizza truck was on hand for guests who got peckish in the evening!

What Made Our Day Unique

We got married in Glenisla, which is a really special place for us. We had a lot of traditional Scottish elements to the wedding, but also mixed in African music, a huge flower instillation and lots of homemade touches. We wanted it to feel fun, relaxed and exciting with a touch of glamour. All the food was vegetarian, and we worked hard to make sure it was delicious and plentiful. We also had a local stonebaked pizza van outside the marquee, which was a massive hit with our guests. We served Buckfast cocktails, so having something to soak those up was essential!

Hanging Flowers

I just love this idea of the hanging flowers in the marquee, it looks truly stunning and definitely left a lot of guests open-mouthed in awe! Bringing the landscapes of the glen indoors, the foliage was collected from the nearby areas and used to create hanging decoration. A perfect place to spend their most special day, with a few surprises along the way including a performance by the bride's sister and friends and some llamas brought in by the bride's mum (no, the llamas werent performing as well)! Instead of place names, the bride meticulously embroidered the names of each guest with a dainty flower onto napkins and it's the attention to detail like this and the personal touches (DIY bar by the groomsmen to name another) that made the day so wonderful!
