A wonderful summer marquee wedding in the grounds of our favourite Scottish castle

It was such a privilege working with Charlotte, Stuart and their family to plan their wonderful summer marquee wedding.   We created a lovely theme based around their preferred colours of pink and grey using custom made pink taffeta chair cushions with matching napkin ties, ivory chiavari chairs and gorgeous ivory french style dining chairs for the top table.

The weather behaved perfectly allowing the drinks reception to be held in the walled gardens of the castle followed by the wedding breakfast and dancing under the stars!

Charlotte and Stuart had a super sparklers send off by their guests and they even had the good luck to have a full rainbow in all it's glory shine over their marquee.

We send them our very best wishes for a happy future together.

Marquee preparations under way

We love garlands!   Glorious full length floral garland along top table

A romantic elopement

We absolutely loved helping Paige and Dwayne to plan their romantic elopement here in Scotland.  It was all the more fun because Dwayne was travelling from Australia and Paige from Canada.   We love to help our couples to include meaningful personal touches to their wedding plans and Paige wore her Grandmother's dress while we helped Dwayne to include a little part of his heritage from the Isle of Mjull by sourcing some special tweed woven on the island and made up for him into a waistcoat by one of our amazing suppliers. 

Our warmest congratulations to the delightful Paige and Dwayne.   We were privileged to witness their elopement for them here in Scotland

An Irish family wedding in Scotland

Working with Julie to help her plan her Scottish wedding was great fun and then seeing everything come to fruition on her big day was just lovely.   She and Geoff were married in a lovely intimate setting in a hotel on the west coast of Scotland where all their family were able to stay on site.  The sun shone and a great day was had by all.   Family travelled from as far as New Zealand to join them for their celebrations.

Julie and Geoff travelled from Ireland for their wedding on the west coast of Scotland.   We wish them all the best for a long and very happy marriage. 

From Switzerland to Scotland for a family wedding

It was lovely being able to help Barrie and Stephanie with their wedding plans.   They asked for our help since they both live in Switzerland and wanted to plan a Scottish wedding bringing their families together for a private celebration.   We recommended the excellent Ballathie House Hotel for their celebrations and with exclusive use being an option they took over the hotel and enjoyed a fantastic two days with their closest family and friends.  We wish them our heartfelt best wishes for a wonderful future.


On Top of the World!   A romantic elopement at the top of Scotland's famous monument

We were privileged to work with Amy and Tyler to plan all the details of their elopement from the USA to Scotland for their autumn wedding.

An intimate Scottish castle wedding

If you're looking for a romantic fairy tale Scottish castle wedding then look no further than Megan and John's recent wedding.    They travelled with their families from the USA to be married in this beautiful castle which has connections with the bride's great grandparents.   We were delighted to be able to plan all the details for them.
