Shona and Jonny – Crossbasket Castle

Scotland!! We love a Scottish wedding, so we were so excited when Shona emailed us to see if we were free to film her wedding at Crossbasket Castle….of course we were!

The whole day was wonderful, both families so friendly and welcoming, and you can see just how important they all are to each other. Family was a big theme on the day and it made it very special. From the venue to the weather (the day previous was thick fog and rain!) it all came together to make a gorgeous day.

Shona chose the brilliant Jesus Peiro for her dress, one of my favourite designers, paired with Manolo Blahs shoes. The bridesmaids wore Maids to Measure dresses in a beautiful dusty pink colour. Flowers on the day were by Mood Flowers, who did a wonderful job. Make up was by Complection Perfection (not that they needed much….)

Jonny wore a kilt teamed with waist coat and jacket by Andrew Brookes tailor. His whole team of ushers wore kilts too…they looked pretty sharp!

After the heartfelt ceremony the pair left the church in a family sports car, complete with tin cans trailing behind, and led the guests back to Crossbasket Castle. The sun shone and we able to enjoy drinks on the terrace before heading into the reception inside.

The beautiful cake was made by Heathers Cakes and the entertainment in the evening included a traditional Ceilidh (our fave!!) and live music by Callanish. We left them in full swing and they no doubt partied the night away.

Www were fined by Euan Roberston who was the photographer on the day. He was an absolute delight to work with, hope we see you again somewhere Euan!

Thank you so much Shona and Jonny for having us with you; you made us feel so welcome and part of the day, it was a total pleasure to meet you all and share the day with you. Lots of luck and love for your future together xx

Jacquetta and Elliot – Hotel Cipriani, Venice

Jacquetta and Elliot, who travelled all the way from California, held their intimate and romantic destination wedding at the Venetian classic; the Hotel Cipriani (fave hangout of Clooney no less) followed by the sumptuous Hotel Metropole for the reception and evening meal.The whole day was planned with the help of super talented and lovely Eva from Chic weddings, and the theme of glamour and rich, deep colours suited the venues perfectly.

Jacquetta and Elliot got ready at Hotel Cipriani with their ceremony being held on the lawns overlooking the vast canals. Jacquetta chose a beautiful burgundy Vera Wang wedding dress and feathered Manolo Blahniks which were the perfect compliment to the whole setting and styling…she looked amazing! A friend of the couple conducted the ceremony and both Jacquetta and Elliot exchanged their own, heartfelt wedding vows. A champagne reception followed where guests donned Venetian masquerade masks, before everyone was transported by boat to the Hotel Metropole. Jacquetta and Elliot took some time out to visit the stunning Saint Mark Square and Cafe Florian. They even managed to dance in the middle of the square to passerby’s smiles and congratulations.

The wedding meal was exquisitely styled again by Eva, with beautiful flowers by Tea Rose Events. A delicious 10 course meal and speeches followed, before dancing and more drinks. The wedding party then finished the evening late with a visit to the famous casino of Venice…what a day! We were accompanied by the very lovely Lindsay Madden who was the photographer, from New York. She was a delight to work alongside as were Eva and Sara from Chic weddings.

Thank you so much Jacquetta and Elliot for letting us be a part of your day, we wish you much love and happiness in the future! X
