Tell us about your day?
Our wedding day was everything we could have hoped for and so much more. It was the most magical day and we didn’t want it to end! We got married at Dundas Castle at the end of June and it was typical Scottish summer weather – a mix of rain and sunshine! The sun came out for long enough for our photographs and to enjoy drinks outside. It really was the happiest day of our lives and it was a great feeling sharing it with all our family and friends.
Where did you find inspiration for your wedding?
I spent hours daydreaming on pinterest and on wedding blogs initially to get ideas. I knew I wanted romantic, pretty pastel colours as it was a summer wedding. I chose light pinks and whites and used gold throughout to compliment the Auld Keep and the pavilion. Gemma at Planet Flowers was also amazing making suggestions and turning my ideas into reality! The willow arch turned out to be even more beautiful than I imagined!
Why did you choose your venue?
We knew we wanted a Summer wedding and in the hope that it would be a warm, sunny day, we wanted somewhere with beautiful grounds. With us living so close, Dundas was the perfect choice. The drive up to the castle is just the beginning of its beauty – it’s almost as if it’s in the middle of nowhere and the grounds are absolutely stunning. The keep feels warm and intimate and is full of character. Lisa, Alyson and the rest of the team were faultless, and as soon as we booked we knew we had made the right choice. Staying in the castle after the wedding was also so special – it meant we could just extend the day that little bit longer and enjoy the castle to ourselves!
Why did to choose to have a video of your day?
The one piece of advice everyone gives you is that the day goes by so quickly, and until it’s actually your wedding, you don’t realise just how quickly that actually is. While you can try to take everything in on the day, there’s so many things you miss. Choosing to have a videographer was the best decision we could have made – it’s amazing to watch it back and see the things you didn’t see, and is such a lovely reminder of all the happiness on the day!
What was your favourite part in your highlight film?
All of it! Everything was captured so well from everyones emotions to the humour throughout the day.
Any tips for future Brides and Grooms?
Plan until your heart’s content then when it gets to your wedding day, relax and enjoy it – all the little details you’ve planned will come together.
Find a few minutes to escape just the two of you, take everything in and treasure that moment! It’s the best feeling ever!
