We specialise in helping couples from the UK and around the world to plan the very best style of wedding they want at the best possible price. Whether your dream wedding is an elopement just for two or a luxury destination wedding in an exclusive Scottish Castle for
several hundred guests over several days we have the professional expertise and knowledge to help you. We don't simply roll out a package wedding. Every wedding is unique and you will have our personal attention to help you to plan a very special day.
Crucial to the success of your wedding day is hiring the very best wedding suppliers to provide all the essentials. Our unique value to you as professional wedding planners lies in not only being able to assist you to find your perfect wedding venue in Scotland but also being able to share our excellent contacts who may otherwise be hard for you to come by. We have a valuable list of suppliers who are talented and trustworthy. We are also often able to negotiate special prices, discounts and packages, as well as pull in any essential last minute favours at short notice, on your behalf. This goes a long way to off-setting our planning fee and to giving you peace of mind.
Our valuable professional wedding planning service enables you to relax and really enjoy your wedding day
We find most couples have a tendency to under-estimate how long it will take to plan their wedding. There are so many essential details involved in the process as well as the overwhelming number of options available on the internet that making an informed decision can soon become quite difficult. The more suppliers you engage the more work is involved in keeping track of everything.
We will project manage everything for you, advise and guide you on your budget, cut through the hype, coordinate all your meetings and suppliers, keep you informed and be there supporting you every step of the way.
Janice Grimley-Evans who owns and manages Blue Thistle Weddings is an Award Winning Professional Scottish Wedding Planner who will oversee everything personally for you and help you to plan exactly the style of wedding you would like
in line with your vision and budget.
Please be assured, we will involve you at every step of the planning process and communicate with you regularly.
We will carefully plan all the details of your wedding with you so that you are very much part of things and in control.
Our role is to guide and organise; not to dictate to you or try to take over. We never forget this is your day.
Our aim is to help you to bring your vision to life and to take away all the stress and hard work leaving you to
really enjoy making your wedding plans.
