A Colourful Outdoor Scottish Wedding

  • Please meet Amber, the bridal shop manager, and James, a designer, and decorator, who married on 20 June 2018 in the blank canvas venue, Ayrshire in Scotland.

    A desire for any bold and bright day along with a wish to produce a Parisian floral fiesta to reflect their visits together to France led the pair to fill the farm and barn with wild summer flowers as well as an eclectic mixture of jugs and tins for any cozy, homely feel.

    Amber was in the perfect situation to determine many, many gowns and she knew her dream dress was the one for her. It is so incredibly special using the delicate yet vivid pink embroidery within the ethereally light tulle. The gown is completely perfect for a summertime wedding.

    The boldness of the gown was offset through the vintage soft tulle, and complete veil and Amber visited their high-street favorite on her deep pink bridal shoes.

    Amber's grown-up bridesmaids wore short bridesmaid dresses in soft hues of green for any fresh, summery vibe. Their bespoke hair combs were designed to enhance Amber's plus they carried vibrant, joyful bouquets.

    "My mum and her closest friend Lucy very kindly agreed to do our flowers. I found the website which searches for all of the local wildflower growers in your town. Many growers provide you with buckets of flowers for any set price therefore we ordered ten buckets and gave the farmer a tough idea from the colors we wanted. The flowers were absolutely beautiful, we wanted these phones to look as if they'd just been plucked in the ground and also to not be too stylized – these were perfect."

    "For the ceremony within the garden, my mum and I designed a floral arch with silk flowers and ivy to frame James and me once we got married. We added some Persian rugs towards the aisle to make it look a little cozier coupled with sunflowers and ribbons hanging in the ends from the rows to include a pop of color." Here

    James decided on a traditional Scottish kilt having a modern twist through its bright tartan of Ancient Buchanan. Worn having a jacket and waistcoat, he looks contemporary and confident. The final touches were a deep green tie and a pretty buttonhole.

    "We wanted all of the groomsmen to possess different colored tartans – I love the look of all of the colors! We stuck to tones of green and blue so there is some link between them."

    After the ceremony, Amber shared information about how she and her talented family and friends created this bright look using flowers, ribbons, and trinkets. My favorite detail has to become the ribbon and flowers bunting which fluttered within the breeze.

    "We wanted the primary barn to become filled with color so I made meters of dangling fake flowers with ribbons and threaded colorful petals onto string to hang too. My mum designed a big chandelier of ivy and fake flowers which sat on the top table."

    The evening's dance acquired pace having a ceilidh dance to after the pair took towards the floor for Nick Cave's 'Into My Arms.

    "We debated our first dance for a while and worried that 'Into My Arms' was not fast enough but eventually I thought, 'Who cares what your guests think? This is our first dance and our song', therefore it had to become that!"

    Words of Wedded Wisdom

    "Don't get hung up on small things. If something doesn't go quite to plan either before or at the time of the marriage, don't stress. The people who are around you will make things right. It's one big party and also you need to possess a blast!"
