Some serious style went down at Zander & Becca’s wedding. This was a day that had it all – from fire pits to brass bands!
Boil the kettle, sit down and enjoy their day!
Where did you find inspiration for your wedding?
We wanted to create a day that was unique to us, a formal setting with relaxed atmosphere where we could enjoy the company of our nearest and dearest. A Rustic Romantic feel, a formal ceremony with relaxed celebration. We used websites such as the wedding of our dreams, not on the high street and in particular Etsy to source the decor for our day, we wanted to pay attention to detail and combine natural fibres and textures e.g burlap and wood with feminine soft lace and county vintage inspired flowers.
Why did you choose your venue?
The chapel at Murthly is such a spiritual place, we both felt that on our first visit there and instantly knew it was where we wanted to say I do, the atmosphere there is indescribable so ancient and grand. We then chose Ballathie as the location for our reception, this part of Perthshire is very special to us, ballathie offered a first class service in a stunning location on the banks of the Tay which served a stunning backdrop for our Tipis. We knew we needed an outdoor space to host our wedding guest and fell in love with the ambience the Tipis create, we wanted to create a warm, fun, informal space which was something the tipis lend themselves to perfectly, they have a natural wow factor and looked beautiful decorated with lots of fairy lights and an open fire pit for marshmallow toasting.
Why did to choose to use a videographer?
Very early on we knew we wanted a video, video captures so much of the emotion and vibe of the day, we wanted timeless memories of the day to share with generations to come and to have our wedding captured for us to look back on, Having the combination of photos and film worked out perfectly, one compliments the other brilliantly.
John was just the perfect person for the job, he blended into our day perfectly and you would hardly have noticed him there, he was so easy to work with, went the extra mile for us and the results speak for themselves.
What was your favourite part in your highlight film?
The way in which the video captured the essence of our day was unbelievable, from the emotion of the ceremony to the fun of the reception, it was incredible to see things that as a bride and groom you might have missed, your guests arriving at the chapel, moments of affection between loved ones and the sheer joy and happiness of those sharing in your day, just incredible.
Any tips for future Brides and Grooms?
As cliche as it sounds relax and soak it all up, take time to just be together and take it all in, don’t get caught up on the little things, have trust in the people around you and remember that what is most important and most wonderful thing in it all is the commitment your making to each other. Be true to yourselves and don’t sacrifice on your vision for your day to keep others happy, remember you will only do it once! And make sure Little Love Films capture it for you
