Quaich Ceremony at Loch Garten in Scotland with DIY Village Hall Wedding Reception

BUDGET £12.5 – 15K

Nearly five years in the business and I’m the first to hold my hands up and say I’ve never heard of a Quaich ceremony. Shame on me. But I’m certainly glad I know what one is now. It’s such a lovely Scottish tradition and the first of many ways this wonderful couple made their day their way. Just wait until you see their village hall reception laden with trinkets and DIY decor too, it’s so beautiful.

Lauren & Marc

Lauren and Marc’s classic and elegant Scottish wedding at Kirknewton Stables is so pretty. With a romantic lilac colour palette, boys in super smart kilts and fairy lights galore, it’s a wedding I know you’re going to love. Images come from Ross Alexander, who has captured everything in such a beautiful, natural way – if you’re looking for a friendly and easy going wedding photographer in Scotland, he’s your guy!

Carley & Fraser

Carley and Fraser’s wedding is literally a dream from start to finish. I’m in love with the opulent berry tones, the flowers EVERYWHERE, the gold accents, the fabulous fashion choices and the quintessential Scottish estate venue. Honestly, if you were to look in the dictionary under ‘Stylish Autumn Wedding In Scotland’ this is what you’d find. It makes complete sense then, that Bride Carley is a wedding photographer herself, so she had an eye on what she wanted to create for her own big day for a while. This is clearly the realisation of a beautiful dream!

As you’d expect, the photography for this occasion is top notch, with her friends Marc Millar and Julie Tinton both helping to capture the day. Make sure you’re sitting comfortably for this one, it’s a seriously stunning day and I just know it’s going to give you all the seasonal feels…

Jen & Sean

There are so many wedding venue gems hidden away in Scotland, like Colstoun. I love featuring Scottish weddings because I get to nose inside them (virtually of course) and admire how you lovely people decorate them. Jen and Sean went to town with foliage, well and truly bringing the outdoors in for their reception. Their ceremony followed the same notion, taking place in the venue’s polytunnel while the rain hammered down above them – luckily this is happens to be one of the most romantic sounds in the world.

Jen looks gorgeous in her gown, the lace top was made specially for her and it looks divine, I love a high neckline and capped sleeve combination. Images come from the very lovely Caro Weiss, whose brides and weddings are always so stylish and original…

Heather & Bruce

I always love featuring weddings that take place outside, especially when the couple are lucky with the weather. Heather and Bruce’s big day, held next to a Scottish loch was bathed in glorious sunshine – or at least it looks that way in the images by Weddings Vintage 😉 We’re always so envious of our Scottish couples who can legally marry in the great outdoors.

The day was so lovely that the couple headed out on the water in a boat, which made for the most gorgeous images. Enjoy this one, it’s full of gorgeous flowers and fashion too…

Olivia & Jed

When the bride is a photographer herself, you just know that the wedding is going to be a gorgeous one. Olivia and Jed’s wedding is stylish and elegant, but also feels contemporary and fresh, with lots of fun details – like the gin bottle centre pieces, the moose motif and a dessert table to end all dessert tables.

Images come from Photos By Zoe who has captured the pretty details, people’s emotions and the drama of the Scottish manor house venue to perfection.

Kerry & Chris

Keeping with the Winter theme today we thought we’d take you up North for a rustic Scottish wedding complete with Christmas carols and an impromptu sing a long by all the little children to Disney’s Frozen ‘Let It Go’. I must confess I wouldn’t have been able to resist joining in too!

Everybody was then transported by vintage bus to a fabulously decorated hall full to bursting with DIY decor, vintage trinkets and homemade treats all lovingly put together by family and friends the day before. All of these little details added to the overall creative, fun vibe of the wedding day.

I love Audrey Hepburn and now I love Kerry! Both are absolute style icons in my eyes. Kerry’s bespoke vintage inspired Audrey wedding dress and Vivienne Westwood Melissa shoes. Are. Just. Gorgeous! The Bridesmaids look very chic too in their 50s inspired navy dresses and faux fur stoles and how can I forget the Groom paying homage to Scottish tradition and rocking his tartan kilt!

One Jolly Scottish Wedding.


Long standing readers of RMW will recognise this morning’s beautiful Bride…

Sarah of ‘One Jolly Girl’ fame is a previous Real Bride competitor and so we’re thrilled to be bringing you her wedding this morning!

You may have seen her work at Real Bride Karen’s wedding (where she made the cake) and you can’t have failed to notice her appreciation for a man in a kilt…I don’t doubt she went weak at the knees when she saw husband Angus on their wedding day!

As I’m sure Angus did when he saw Sarah in her fishtail Justin Alexander number. She looks so beautiful, radiant and happy.

Sarah and Angus outdid themselves with their gorgeous Scottish beach wedding. The Tunnock’s branding style stationery looks amazing, the whole beach ceremony set-up is stunning and of course, Sarah’s wedding cake looks absolutely delicious.

Without further ado, I’ll pass you over to Sarah to tell you all about her and Angus’ big day…

A Celtic Crossover


Victoria and Richard live in Northern Ireland but decided to make the trip across to Scotland so that they could be married in Inverness, the place they had first met seven years previously.

Embracing the great Scottish outdoors Victoria opted for an outside ceremony and they celebrated their nuptials with a back garden replica of the Highland games. If you have never seen a bride tossing the caber before then this just might be your lucky day. Beautiful Alan Hannah dress, super scottish kilts and a record player… There is something here for everyone.
