Take a peek at this wedding and you’ll see first hand all there is to love about Scottish weddings: a ceremony complete with hand-fasting and some whisky from the quaich (see here for an explanation if you’re not sure what either are); breathtaking lochside views and a cracking knees-up (party) to celebrate. Had we been invited to Nicola and Davie’s wedding, we’d have been there with bells on…


Love at first sight.
What personal touches did you add to your wedding?
We decorated the cake ourselves and made our own sweetie tree. We added personalised love heart sweets and chocolates. Our table decorations were wooden love hearts with our names and wedding date. We also had Harris Tweed phone covers.
What was on your wedding menu?
For starter we had Scallops or Black pudding with soft poached pear. For main the choice was Beef shin or Sea bass. We then had a sorbet course, followed by a trio of sweet desserts or cheese and biscuits.

Any advice for future brides and grooms?
Enjoy every minute as it will all be over soon. The wedding I mean!
Honeymoon or Mini Moon?
Honeymoon soon… hopefully!
How comfortable and relaxed the whole day was and the food was amazing.
How did you pick your location?
We are both Scottish and fell in love with Duisdale when we visited there on our first weekend away together.


How much am I loving those Harris Tweed mobile phone cases? What a top idea for wedding favours, don’t you think? Alie x

City Chic Wedding

Games & Giggles

With just over a month to go until their big day, WFILwedding winners Susan and Al have been taking a little time out from wedding planning to enjoy the buzz of the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow. And in other exciting news, the boys’ bridesmaids’ dresses have arrived too…

Chantal Lachance Gibson - Susan & Al's engagement shoot

“This week we have been enjoying a slower pace of wedding planning! The weather has been fantastic and we’ve been getting in to the spirit of the Commonwealth Games.
“On Thursday we went out for dinner in Arta with Al’s parents and we had a look around the venue which they were very impressed with. After that we went to Glasgow Green where they have a Live Zone for the Games, and we sampled some of Equi’s ice cream! This is one of the dessert options for our wedding dinner and it was delicious!

We cycled home on Glasgow’s answer to the Boris bikes and Al nearly crashed trying to take this selfie!
“On Saturday we also climbed Ben Lomond with a few friends, we enjoyed getting out of the city and the exercise will help us both fit in our dresses!
“All the hairy bridesmaids’ dresses have arrived for the charity run this Sunday and Al has raised over 75% of his £500 target. Quite a few people are planning on making the trip through to Aberdour to support/laugh at them all! There is still time left to sponsor the burly bridal party. Every little helps!”
You can sponsor Al here. I for one can’t wait to see these photos. Run boys, run! Christina x
