With four weeks to plan their wedding, Kirsty and Euan had a vision of a gathering which was all about close family and friends. The sun was shining, everyone was in Kilts and the day ran like clockwork…

Who saw who first?
I started working with Kirsty in 2010 at the factory she has been at for a few years. I did a three month stint there and had an eye for Kirsty. It was a love hate relationship to begin with but soon progressed into love. After giving Kirsty my number we began chatting out of work which led to us dating. We kept this quiet from our work colleagues but this didn’t last long as we couldn’t keep away from each other. I then left the factory and from there our relationship only grew stronger. We have been living with each other for a year now and got engaged at New Year 2012-13. We had been looking around 2015 for our wedding however when my Grandparents became ill we decided to pull it forward. Unfortunately my Grandmother passed away December 2012. On May the 4th we decided to just to arrange a small gathering of friends and family. So with 4 weeks planning it soon snowballed into something big. Our day was perfect! We both think that we could not have asked for more in the short space and time that we had to make all the necessary arrangements.
We were inspired by…
The Grooms Late Grandparents. Euan’s Grandfather was able to make the wedding but unfortunately passed away two weeks later.

What was on your wedding menu?
To Start: Melon or Sweet potato with roasted red pepper soup
Main: Chicken stuffed with ham cheese and wrapped in filo pastry or Roast Strip Loin of beef with Yorkshires. All served with vegetables.
Dessert: White chocolate and lime cheesecake and Sticky toffee pudding
First dance – choreographed routine or sedate shuffle?
A sedate waltz
Any advice for future brides or grooms?
Keep calm and don’t get stressed even if the wedding planner is going overboard. Make sure you get your own way because remember it’s you and your partners day.

WHAT IS THE ONE THING YOU’LL NEVER FORGET ABOUT YOUR BIG DAY?
The sun was shining, everyone was in Kilts and the day ran like clockwork. But most of all Granda was able to see us married on our special day.
Why Scotland?
Where else!?!
