We’re kicking off the weekend with an absolute treat – the glamorous winter wonderland of Mr & Mrs Love (how amazing is that?!). Inspired by candlelight and rose gold sparkle, Amanda and Stuart were married in a Humanist ceremony that they helped write themselves. We are more than a little in love with their wedding style…
How was the big question popped?
Stuart took me to Duck Bay Marina at Loch Lomond for what I thought was our four year anniversary meal. He then disappeared to the loo when the manager of the hotel came to greet me at the table and asked me to join him out on the pier. There was a girl in having an 18th birthday dinner, so I assumed it was something to do with this. He walked me right down to the end of the harbour, it was beautiful. He then took out a bit of paper from his jacket and started reading, a letter, from your Stuart….at that point I had an idea what was happening but was so in shock. The letter was so heartfelt and emotional. He asked me to turn around and there was Stuart on one knee on the pier with the most beautiful ring I had ever seen, asking me to marry him. He timed it all perfectly, he even checked when the sun would set. The number four is special to us, so he waited until 4th May 2014 to propose. We then headed back to the restaurant where they had glasses of Champers waiting for us while everyone sang congratulations. It was perfect.
We were inspired by…
Winter! We wanted it to feel wintery but also warm and classy. I love candles so it was basically based on candlelight, fairy lights and rose gold sparkle.
This venue has the ultimate wow factor. An old traditional Scottish hotel with beautiful modern features. It has undergone a makeover and rebrand and looks amazing! The Kings Hall is just stunning for a wedding. It has the most beautiful feathered chandelier, only two of them in the world. It is perfect. It feels so classy and elegant and we were able to put our own touch to is as the room was so neutral. The staff were just fantastic. Oskar has just won the wedding coordinator of the year award and he deserved to. They could not have done enough for us.
Our florist, Lianne was a dream. As soon as I met with her she knew exactly what kind of bride I was and loved my ideas. I trusted her with my whole wedding. The flowers were absolutely incredible. Exactly what I was looking for and so many people commented of them all day. She has such a lovely team behind her.
Tell us about the photography…
I found our photographers, The Gibsons, through We Fell In Love. What can I say about them, they are a dream to work with. We had a ball with them. They made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera aud it was nice to work with another couple. It felt natural. We loved how excited Chantal got when she saw a cool photo opp. They both have such a talent and we are very happy that we chose them.
And what a talent our filmmakers, Stewart and Alina have. They are super cool people, much like Chantal and Ccott. They have worked with them a lot so on the day it was so much fun all being together, it flew in with them and we hardly noticed they were there. What a highlight video we got; They made it like a Hollywood movie trailer and we could not be more happy with it. We can’t wait to see the whole video now. They are just awesome!
We love your dress – tell us more!
I am totally in love with my dress. It’s completely different to what I thought I wanted. I felt so clean and fresh and like I was going to a Hollywood award ceremony when I tried it on. The gown is simply stunning on its own but we decided to bride it up a bit and Jill from Eleganza spent hours with me going over ideas to make it more bridey. We added a beautiful custom detachable train for my ceremony and I was able to remove it for my evening reception and add a beautiful belt to glam it up a bit. It was perfect.
Stuart bought a beautiful tuxedo from Moss Brothers and had it tailored to fit him. He looked amazing, my own James Bond.
