at St Andrews in the Square

Glasgow-Scotland

Classical and elegant, Christina and Paul’s city chic wedding was packed with pretty. We love everything from the lace and soft pink florals through to the travel themed table names. Most of all we love that these two wanted to share their wedding  with you as they’d be inspired by others…

How did you two meet and become engaged?
We met in November 2010 at the birthday party of two mutual friends. We got engaged in Barcelona in July 2015 in front of the Fountains of Montjuic. Paul got down on one knee with my Great Granny’s engagement ring which I had always loved. It was very romantic and a very special, but surreal moment which we’ll never forget.
Our wedding day was inspired by…
We never started out with a particular theme in mind. We thought the interior of our venue was so beautiful that it wasn’t so necessary to have a bold theme. We took inspiration from various things we’d seen at other weddings, blogs, Pinterest and Instagram. We love to go on holiday so decided our table names would be countries where we had both travelled to together. We bought travel postcards online and used these for the table names along with a photo of us in that country.
How did you choose your wedding venue?
We wanted a venue that had character and charm but with the potential for us to add our own personal touches. We also wanted somewhere that was in the city centre to make it easier for our guests to get to. St Andrews in the Square provided that wonderfully. It was beautiful.
Anything surprising about your day?
Contrary to most weather forecasts we had a lovely sunny wedding day!
We love your dress. How did you select it?
I found it relatively easy to choose my dream dress as I knew I wanted a fitted dress with lace. I wanted a dress which was modern but elegant. Anne Priscilla Bridal had the most amazing selection of dresses and the staff there completely understood what style of dress I was looking for. I felt the Pronovias dress which I chose was elegant and suited to the classic venue. The fabric was amazing quality and it was such an easy dress to wear all day.

Any advice?
Don’t get too stressed over the minor details. Nobody really cares! I threw a bridezilla fit the day before the wedding when we were setting up the venue as I thought the speakers looked huge. In hindsight…it really didn’t matter! The whole venue looked great even with the speakers. Remind yourself that your wedding guests aren’t going to notice the tiny details which haven’t gone to plan. All that really matters is that everyone is having a good time!
How was your photography experience?
On the day Carley was very relaxed, not intrusive but very organised when we needed her to be. She made us both feel at ease and at some points I even felt as if she was another bridesmaid as she was fixing my dress when it got twisted!
Why Scotland?
We love Scotland – we were both born and raised in Glasgow. Most of our family and friends live here so it was the obvious choice. There’s no place like home!
What’s the one truly unforgettable thing about your wedding day?
Dancing with our nearest and dearest to Loch Lomond at the end of the night!
