& Logie House


Late summer colours and rustic charm in bucket-loads set the tone for this beautiful Scottish-Nepalise fusion wedding. We love how much fun it looks and kind of wish we’d made the guest list…

Love at first sight or gradual attraction?
Love at first sight. It was when we were both at university in Manchester. John had been set up on a date with one of my friends and she asked me to go along because she was nervous. We ended up hitting it off during that first meeting and it went on from there.
How was the question popped?
John went down on one knee on a beach when we were on holiday in Mauritius. He didn’t know what ring I would like so he had a pendant of two interlocking rings of gold and silver. As soon as we got home, John phoned my parents in Nepal to ask them for their permission and then took me ring shopping.
Wedding Style?
Rustic country style with lots of late summer colours. The wedding breakfast was held in the fabulous Logie Ballroom. We’d incorporated whiskey barrels, wooden crates to give the rustic feel to the ballroom. We had wooden slices (which John’s dad had provided) as table centre pieces and also placed on the window sills with jam jars dressed with hessian and lace filled with pretty flowers and candles. Some of the tables had branchy arrangements to represent the autumnal trees to bring the outdoors inside and to give the warm feeling, small glass baubles with tea lights were hung on them. We totally loved the whole look of it and our love for the outdoors was very well represented.
Something Old – I had used the trilogy diamond pendant and necklace that John had bought me years ago to go with the trilogy diamond engagement ring; Something New – Definitely the DRESS; Something Borrowed – A few things, the main one was the bridal car along with the chauffeur, borrowed a vintage little suitcase for our guest book table to hold the polaroid camera and films for the guest book; Something Blue – lovely silky blue dressing gown and “I Do” rhinestone stickers in blue stuck on the underside of my wedding shoes provided by my very thoughtful friend so that I had something blue with me all day.
Any unexpected moments?
My bridesmaid couldn’t do up the final three buttons on my dress. I was having visions of the rest of the buttons popping as I walked down the aisle! One of my girl friends saved the day outside the church and it was all ok but my friends hands were shaking afterwards.

Best compliment on your wedding?
The best compliment was the one that we got the most often – that everyone had an amazing time and everything was just so beautiful!.
We tried to incorporate traditional elements from both Nepal and Scotland in our wedding. From Nepal: – the ladies wore traditional Nepalese dress for the evening reception – we had traditional Nepalese food in the evening (really popular with everyone!) – my cousin Sabrina is a very good dancer and she put on a Bollywood style display during the evening reception. From Scotland: – the ceremony; the piper; the wedding breakfast; the Ceilidh dancing and a few drams of whisky.
Honeymoon or mini-moon?
Mini-moon in London. Whilst my Mum and Dad were over from Nepal, we had a mini road trip around the UK with them, ending at my sister’s house in Folkstone. Before heading back to Scotland we had a couple of nights by ourselves in London to do some sight seeing and catch a musical.
Family, Friends, Fabulous.
We both love Scotland and it has been our home for 9 years so we were always keen to have our wedding here. Logie House was mentioned to me in passing by my personal trainer which I had ignored at first as had fallen in love with another venue also located in the lovely Scottish countryside, but decided to give it a chance and we both set a date to view it. As soon as we saw Logie House, we knew we would not find anything better for us. We both love the countryside, and wanted a private and special day with our close family and friends, Logie House ticked all the boxes for us, and we and both our families had an amazing experience of Logie House. We also both love to ceilidh and thought that it would be a great way to get everyone on the dance floor, Scottish, English and Nepalese.
The great memories of our special day and seeing our friends and family enjoy themselves so much. Since then we’ve just been enjoying every day being together as Mr and Mrs DARE :O)
