"Janice was everything we could've hoped for in our Elopement planner! My
hubs and I were from the US, so we had no idea how to go about getting
married in Scotland! Janice was so helpful and detailed every step of
the way. She thought of everything! We adore her sweet and considerate
and caring personality. She made our Elopement an
absolute fairy tale come true!" Sarah and Joshua, December 2019

Planning your wedding, whether just for two or something on a much larger scale, is a wonderful experience but it takes many hours of careful planning. We know from experience that this can soon become overwhelming, time consuming and stressful. We will be privileged to help you and to give you the benefit of our experience to put the fun back into wedding planning.

A Romantic and Intimate Scottish Castle Wedding
"First a very heart felt thank you to Janice and her team! Our fall wedding in the Scottish Highlands was everything we had dreamed of and hoped to experience over the past year in working with Blue Thistle Weddings. Janice and the other critical services and vendors that she coordinated were simply outstanding. We now fully appreciate just how vital Janice was in making our dream wedding come true. Her network and reputation are sensational and cannot be over estimated in terms of their importance. No detail was too small or overlooked and her ability to orchestrate a joyous and smooth running event catered to our wants and wishes, (all from Texas!) was nothing short of incredible. It’s also important to note the comfortable relationship we immediately formed with Janice and how pleasant every exchange and communication was throughout the process. We cannot recommend Blue Thistle Weddings highly enough to any bride or groom venturing into their wedding planning journey!" Steve & Jenna, Texas
