The couple crossed paths in 2010 and got engaged in Barcelona in July 2015. The traditional Scottish wedding was elegant and natural, exactly what they had envisioned.
How did you and your partner meet?
We met in November 2010 at the birthday party of two mutual friends.
How did he propose?
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.
How did you choose your wedding gown?
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. I found my dress in a shop called Anne Priscilla Bridal in Glasgow.
They had the most amazing selection of dresses and the staff there completely understood what style of dress I was looking for. I felt that 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.
What sort of style did you envision for your wedding day?
We never started out with a particular theme/style in mind for our big day. We thought the interior of our venue was so beautiful that it wasn’t so necessary to have a bold style. We wanted a traditional Scottish wedding that was elegant and natural.
What was your favourite moment from the day?
Dancing with our nearest and dearest to Loch Lomond (a traditional Scottish song) at the end of the night!
Any DIY décor elements?
We took inspiration from various things we’d seen at other weddings, blogs, Pinterest and Instagram. I had made a few chalk boards
If you could do it all over again, what would you change?
I would love to do it all over again as it really was the best day ever but I wouldn’t change a thing.
Any tips that you can give to future brides?
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!
