Best compliment on your wedding?
We’ve had so many… it was very you… it was so different… it was so much fun… it was the best wedding ever…
Where did you draw inspiration from?
Mainly from us. What music we like, what movies we like, our interests, etc. I also drew inspiration from nature. I’m a bit of a hippie at heart so wanted it to be rustic and earthy.
What made you fall in love with your wedding venue?
A variety of reasons really. First and foremost, it’s a very beautiful setting. It has lots of greenery, it’s beside a river and there’s a beautiful ornate old bridge. It also lies in between both our home towns which is nice. The estate holds special memories for my Mum too as my Grandpa’s uncle was the caretaker when the castle was there and she stayed in the castle often as a child, where they would dance around the ballroom.

What was the most fun part about planning your wedding?
Probably all the many chats we would have between ourselves and our families planning things out. Talking about how we pictured the day and what we wanted to achieve.
I really enjoyed the day I bought my dress (yes, one day and I think I tried on a total of three dresses!). I had been dreading it. I had fallen in love with a dress I’d seen on The Vintage Wedding Dress Company website and I found out that Anne Priscilla Bridal in Glasgow were going to be stocking the Decades Collection so I went along to the Designer Day with my mum. There I met the very lovely dress designer, Charlie Brear and her colleague Jess. As it happened, the dress I first fell in love with on the website didn’t look right on me at all but Charlie and Jess suggested I try on a couple of other designs and the second dress I tried on was ‘the one’. They were so friendly and helpful and it was lovely to find out more about my dress (what the design was based on, where the material had come from, etc). Mum and I finished the day with some bubbles at the champagne bar in Central Station. So the day I had been dreading turned into something really fun.
Did you embrace or ditch tradition?
We kept a few traditions in there such as speeches, first dance, etc but we’re not very big on tradition…

Honeymoon or Mini-Moon?
Mini-moon (but hoping to have a big honeymoon too).
Close your eyes and think of your wedding day. Now – describe it in three words…
Unique, us and fun.
Why Scotland?
It’s home.
I love those sparkly blue Converse. And the tipis, of course! Anyone else having them for their big day? Christina x
