South Lanarkshire-Scotland

It was love at first sight for Rachel & Andrew. Inspired by relaxed, Italian weddings and a shared love of music and fashion, they celebrated with a sing-a-long, customised pizza & a whole lot of style.

We were inspired by…
Lanvin fashion sketches were the inspiration for the stationery. The dress was inspired by Grace Kelly. Travelling around Tuscany together and seeing relaxed weddings spilling out onto the town squares, inspired our choice of the intimate setting of Chatelherault for the ceremony, Andiamo for the meal and Roberto Enzo to play during it.
HOW DID YOU PERSONALISE YOUR WEDDING DAY?
Music played a huge part in making it our day. During the ceremony we had a sing-along to ‘Can’t Take My Eyes Off You’. The string trio played Lady Gaga’s ‘Bad Romance’ for the signing of the register, which our guests loved, and The Pixies’ ‘Where Is My Mind’ for the recessional. Roberto played music from some of our favourite films.
What was on your wedding menu?
Too much to mention! The highlights were the huge antipasti platters for the starter and ‘Pizza Del Cliente’, where guests concocted their own special pizzas. Andiamo also did an excellent job at matching wines to each course. In the evening, the chocolate fountain (and bacon rolls) were popular.
FIRST DANCE – CHOREOGRAPHED ROUTINE OR SEDATE SHUFFLE?
A badly executed choreographed routine to an acoustic version of Lana Del Rey Video Games.
WHAT IS YOUR ADVICE FOR FUTURE BRIDES?
Enjoy the planning. At the time it feels like a second full time job, but afterwards all of the tiny details build to form a memory of everything that was great about the day.
HONEYMOON OR MINI-MOON?
Honeymoon in Malaysia. A city break for a few nights in Kuala Lumpur and complete relaxation on the beach at a spa hotel in Penang.
WHAT WAS THE ONE THING YOU’LL NEVER FORGET ABOUT YOUR BIG DAY?
Rachel – Andrew smiling as I walked down the aisle with my dad.
Andrew- Seeing Rachel walk down the aisle, surrounded by our closest friends and family.
WHY SCOTLAND?
It’s where we fell in love! (…plus we wanted to be alone on our honeymoon).
So much to love here! Those shoes, that cat & the bib that Rachel dons for the meal, just to mention a few! What’s your favourite part of this beautiful big day?
