What Made Our Day Unique
We pulled every detail together ourselves and used talents from our amazing friends and family to create a really unique day with a homespun aspect. We had family members making a tablet, carrying the cog, flipping the hall for the ceilidh, and serving the food and drinks. I also made the favours, place settings, seating chart and invites myself and sourced props so we were able to create something which we felt really represented us as a couple. I regretted doing it all ourselves at times but thankfully we have a super supportive family that pitched in with every task!
Quaich CeremonyA Quaich ceremony is a Celtic, Scottish tradition whereby the bride and groom drink from a Quaich cup which is also referred to as a love cup. Drinking from the same cup signifies trust and the two handles make it ideal for sharing. Hannah & Josh's cup was made from wood, but they can also be made of pottery, silver or pewter and come in a range of sizes. We're not sure what tipple they filled their cup with, but if it were me I would fill mine with the finest champagne! The perfect way to toast becoming husband and wife.
Inspiration & Styling
I am a stylist in the fashion industry for work so had an idea in my head of what I wanted the overall aesthetic to be, with the main inspiration coming from the amazing woodland landscape around Nethybridge itself. Beginning outside on the loch we wanted to tie this through the whole day and used suppliers who sourced food, drinks and flowers local to the area. I spent a LOT of late nights on Etsy collecting vintage tins and playing cards, this was quite fun and added a mystical element to the day which I loved too.
