Real Wedding Recap Summer 2013: Rewind: A Real Wedding In Scotland – Michelle & Jav

June 26th, 2013 | Julia Braime

.

Its holiday season here on the blog, and as the team take a break until to rest and recharge for the second half of what’s set to be the biggest and best year year yet at Brides Up North HQ, we’ll be leaving you with a reduced blogging schedule so that you still get your daily dose of wedding pretty. 

.

Usual service will recommence on 1st July 2013,  but in the meantime watch out for recaps of our favourite Real Weddings so far in 2013, plenty of eye candy, new features that we won’t be able to wait to share, some special supplier showcases and a couple of surprises too!

Michelle and Jav’s gorgeous Real Wedding in the North of Scotland – first featured this April – has got to be one of my favourites to date, mixing up just the right amount of fun and frivolity, beauty and elegance.

.

I’m impressed by their pretty vintage styling, Michelle’s ability to look flawless when travelling by open topped VW Beetle (does she remind anyone else of a young Elizabeth Taylor?!) and the cool, calm way that all their style choices work together beautifully to exude a sort of old time charm.

With images by SD Photography, this is one for the Pinterest boards ladies.

Michelle says:  Jav asked me to marry him at home in June 2012, and our big day was the 18th August 2012.  Our venues were Holy Trinity Church & Atholl Palace Hotel in Pitlochry, which is in the North of Scotland.

We chose our venue as it had great surroundings and views and looked like a real Scottish palace!

I chose an ivory dress with a full skirt and some sparkle! It was purchased from Bliss Bridal which is in Dundee.  The groomsmen wore The Hunting Pride of Scotland tartan kilts (bottle green with a hint of ivory) and these were from Mccalls of Broughty Ferry, near Dundee. 

.

My bridesmaids had champagne knee length prom dresses with ivory underskirts, which were all hand finished by a dressmaker we know.

Simple Vintage: A Real Wedding In Scotland – Clare & Joe

March 27th, 2013 | Julia Braime

.

Chantal Lachance-Gibson Photography

.

.

Time for another Real Wedding, I reckon!  I have some amazing real life celebrations ready to share with you over the next few days, and the first, this little beauty sent to me by real bride Clare and Chantal Lachance-Gibson Photography won’t disappoint.  Clare and Joe chose clean and modern styling to let their stunning venue and hand picked vintage detailing do the talking.  The result? A modern and pretty wedding with added old time romance. 

.

And Clare?  You definitely picked the right dress. 

.

Enjoy.

.

.

Chantal Lachance-Gibson Photography

.

.

Clare says:  We got engaged in Rome on 12/05/2011. We’d gone on a mini-trip to Dublin, Barcelona and ending in Rome in the space of a week. By the time we’d got to Rome we were both exhausted (and I’d given up hope of a proposal ‘cause I didn’t think he’d be able to keep it a secret through two cities already!).

We’d gone for dinner and then walked to the Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore which was all lit up with a fountain out front so it was all very romantic when he went down on one knee.

.

.

Chantal Lachance-Gibson Photography.

.

.

We originally planned to get married on the 07/04/13 but we brought it forward to 08/07/12 because we (well, I!) were getting bored of waiting for it to come along and worried about elderly relatives being able to make it. It worked out perfectly!

.

.

Chantal Lachance-Gibson Photography

.

.

.

.

Our reception was at Glenskirlie Castle.  It was the first venue we saw! Glenskirlie have both a “House” and a “Castle” venue and as soon as I seen the castle I knew that’s where I wanted to get married. We did go see other venues but nothing even close to matched up to Glenskirlie. It ticked all the boxes – separate rooms for ceremony & reception, lovely gardens and plenty of quiet corners and rooms for guests to sneak away to when it all got too much and or they wanted to chat.

.

.

Chantal Lachance-Gibson Photography

.

.

.

.

We didn’t have a theme.  Some elements swayed to almost vintage or “shabby chic” but there was no set theme, just what we liked. The décor of Glenskirlie really set off the vintage look though.  Our main colours were dusky pink and sage green which went gorgeously together. 

.

.

Chantal Lachance-Gibson Photography

I originally bought a dress from a lovely boutique in Glasgow but by in March, when the dress arrived – I didn’t like it!  A lot of soul searching and fast alterations later I had the most perfect dress from Laura Reece Bridal. I would highly recommend both Laura’s boutique and her seamstress Andrina Greig who did wonders.  I wore my late grandmother’s pearls and a gorgeous birdcage veil from www.lilybella.co.uk. 

.

.

Chantal Lachance-Gibson Photography

.

.

My bridesmaid – one of my best friends from school – picked her own dress from www.very.co.uk! I wanted something that she’d be able to wear again and that she loved.

.

Joe bought a kilt from Macgregor and Macduff in Glasgow in the tartan of the county in Ireland his family originates from, Donegal. His groomsmen (best man, two ushers and father of the groom and step-father of the bride) all wore a dark grey/black tartan.

.

Originally I was happy to take a taxi – but that idea was rubbished by just about everyone! We hired a car from Soverign Select who were absolutely excellent. My granda was unable to make the wedding at the very last minute and they were kind enough to pick me up, drive me to his house and wait for me to have a few moments and photographs with him – which was really special.  The driver looked very dapper in his hat too!

.

.

Chantal Lachance-Gibson Photography

.

.

I had originally bought two bouquets of silk cala lilies but about a week before the wedding my mum and I decided that real flowers would be nicer so she very generously bought me a lovely bouquet of cala lilies from a local florist which – as it turns out – was probably one of the best decisions we’d made, they were gorgeous.

For the ceremony we had a harpist (Joanna Chaing) who was great. Originally I’d asked for a string quartet but Joe talked me down! For the reception we chose a 4 piece band – Moondance – who were great. The dance floor was full all night!

Smooch Rings made both of our rings to order – for less or around the same as it’d cost on the high street, and offer free cleaning/replating for life.

.

.

Chantal Lachance-Gibson Photography

.

.

Chantal Lachance-Gibson Photography

.

.

We decided to do a lot of the decorations ourselves –  Melody Maison was a godsend for centrepieces and “bits” (although I now want to decorate my whole house from there!).  For chair covers we used a small company that we found on Gumtree who cut our costs enormously.

.

.

Chantal Lachance-Gibson Photography

.

.

Our cake was made by a friend of mine – looked great and tasted delicious as well!

The whole day is a bit of a blur to me really! I loved getting everyone together for photos and by the looks of things I spent the whole day laughing or grinning, so I must have loved it all!  The speeches – although they made me both cringe and cry at separate parts, were lovely. I think the importance of them sometimes gets missed but I’d never do without them.

.

.

Chantal Lachance-Gibson Photography

.

.

After the wedding we spent four days in New York and ten in Playa Del Carmen in Mexico. New York was exhausting but Mexico was the most relaxed I’ve ever been – never wanted to come home!

.

.

Chantal Lachance-Gibson Photography

.

.

My top tip for Brides Up North would be – if you really want something, get it. Buying a second dress was obviously a huge inconvenience (and cost!) but I love my wedding photos and I can’t imagine feeling the same if I’d wore that other dress.  Pick your suppliers carefully – your photographer is one of the most important parts – not of the day itself – but of your memories forever! We were lucky enough to meet Chantal who I have since recommended to everyone who’s even considered a photographer!

.

.

Chantal Lachance-Gibson Photography

.

Congratulations Clare & Joe!

Real Wedding Recap 2012: Very Bonnie In Scotland! A Real Wedding At Loch Lomond – Alina & Michael

December 31st, 2012 | Julia Braime

.

Over the festive period I’ll be recapping some of my very favourite Real Weddings from the last 12 months on the wedding blog. It’s been a tough choice! In true Brides Up North style, each wedding featured on these pages is unique, beautiful and gorgeously personal. It’s been an exceptionally fabulous year! Enjoy…

.

A Wedding at Ross Priory by Mick Cookson Photography

.

.

What better way to see the New Year in that with a proper Scottish celebration?  Hogmany, here we come…

.

As a , trust me, I see a lot of gorgeous wedding dresses on a daily basis.  Consequently, I adore my job.  The downside?  It’s sometimes difficult not to have “dress regret” and wish that I had chosen a particular new style or other for my own wedding, but generally I stay true to my own taste whilst admiring other girl’s choices.  However, today’s Real Wedding sent to me by Mick Cookson Photography and real bride Alina made that particularly difficult for me, as I am simply in love with Alina’s wedding dress.  Hook, line and sinker. 

.

For a girl who didn’t want a wedding gown at all, she has absolutely nailed it!  And, come to mention it,  the rest of her beautiful wedding to Michael at Ross Priory near Loch Lomond…

.

.

Alina says:  We got engaged on New Years Eve (2011) at my parents’ house. I was in the shower after a long day at work getting ready to have a nice meal with my family. I was feeling full of cold so felt a bit sorry for myself. Michael was in the bathroom too, keeping me company. We were chatting about our day when he said he had a surprise for me. When I leaned out of the shower curtain he was down on one knee. As I wear glasses I thought he was joking and told him to bugger off. I quickly realised he wasn’t joking and jumped out of the shower into his arms whilst giving out a yelp. I ran downstairs to my parents in a towel and shower cap where they were waiting for us with Champagne at the ready. They knew weeks in advance it was coming. Michael knows I’m not a huge romantic and I would have hated a big gesture so the proposal was simply perfect for me as it was completely hilarious and very us.

.

We got married on 20th April 2012 at a little church in Scotland called Kilmarnock Church near Loch Lomond. The reception was held at a place called Ross Priory on the banks of Loch Lomond.  Michael always wanted to get married in Scotland due to the beautiful scenery up there. We also liked the idea of a small wedding and making a trip out of the whole thing. Michael’s mum went for lunch at Ross Priory and showed some us some photographs of the place, I instantly asked if they do weddings there…the rest is history!

Our theme for the day was England meets Ukraine (I’m originally from the Ukraine and moved to England as a child for my father’s job) Our cake toppers were a Queen’s guard and a girl in traditional Ukrainian outfit and our invitations and order of service also had a logo of the Ukrainian and English flags. We also served vodka at the tables as well as wine and Champagne

Originally I didn’t want to wear a white/ivory dress as I’m not a girly girl and all I wanted to do was elope to Las Vegas but with gentle persuasion from my Mum I decided to get my dress made. I had trouble finding what I wanted as I don’t like frills, flowers, diamantes or anything too girly. So when I saw a pic of my dress I knew it was the one.  It was ivory and a sweet heart shape cut that was fitted to my hips and then slightly went out at the bottom with a small train. I then had a lace top that went over the top of it. The dress turned out to be perfect and had a great vintage look to it. I forgot about Vegas instantly. I also had a second dress for the evening which was exactly the same but only went down to my knee so I could dance the night away!

.

I carried a bouquet of dark purple double headed lizianthus with purple hydrangea, ocean song rose and purple freesias.

Message In A Bottle! A Real Wedding In Aberdeen – Lucie & Josh

October 13th, 2012 | Julia Braime

.

AB Weddings

.

.

Happy Saturday Brides Up North!  What are your plans for the weekend?  I’m off to a wedding myself (!), helping my great friend Leah to say “I do” to her lovely boyfriend Ben.  Congratulations to the happy couple, and save some cake for me (if I know Leah like I think I do, there’ll be plenty of cake involved)!

.

Whilst I’m having fun eating cake, I’ve a fab Real Wedding just for two to share with you all today.  Lucie and Josh didn’t need anyone else to make their day special (except from Branco from AB Weddings), as they rocked their day the way they wanted it: a bright blue dress, fish and chips and fairgrounds.

.

I like their style. 

.

.

AB Weddings

.

.

Lucie says:   We were married on 23rd December 2011 at Aberdeen Town Hall.  We love the Hall because of it’s amazing architecture, but wanted to have a non traditional and punk rock wedding – with just the two of us!

.

.

AB Weddings

.

.

.

We opted for dark colours and didn’t have a strict dress code, we just wore what we felt comfortable in – which was a bright blue dress for me, to match my hair.  I carried a bouquet of black imitation flowers.

Ethereal Elegance: A Real Wedding In Scotland – Aimee & Joel

May 3rd, 2012 | Julia Braime

.

A Real Wedding In Scotland by Pictorial Photography

.

.

Oooooooooooohh I do love a Real Wedding!  Particularly when it’s as gorgeous as today’s instalment, sent to me by Brides Up North reader Aimee and her photographer Sarah of Pictorial Photography.  Granted, my head may be somewhat turned by all those men in uniform – but just check out the pretty elegance of Aimee and Joel’s big day – beautiful blooms, a stunning gown, killer heels, delectable details and a venue to die for. 

.

And did I mention the men in uniform?

.

Enjoy. 

.

Aimee says:  We got engaged on 22nd August 2010 under a rainbow on a beach in Mexico and were married on 9th July 2011 at Wedderburn Castle in the Scottish Borders. 

.

.

We chose the venue as both come from the local area originally and met at the high school in Duns just down the road.  I wanted the whole thing to feel quite ethereal to fit in with the venue. Although since Joel is in the Royal Navy there was a distinct military feel about it!

.

We chose a colour palette of deep greens and blues complimented with creams.

My wedding dress was strapless, ivory silk. Very simple in design with only a little bit of detail around the bust from Emma Roy, Edinburgh. My jewellery was by Rosie Brown, Edinburgh. 

.

I carried a bouquet of cream peonies, vintage roses and ivy by The Flower Room, Berwick Upon Tweed.

.

My bridesmaids wore long silk dresses in a similar style to my dress in a gorgeous “spruce” colour. Again, very simple and classic from Bella B in Berwick-upon-Tweed.  My little flower girls wore cream dresses with sparkly pumps from John Lewis.  The girls carried the same cream posies as me, with thistles too.

My top tip for other Brides Up North would be  to make sure that you get together with friends and family on the Friday night – the wedding itself goes so quickly that the extra time to catch up with people really makes the whole event special. It’s also a relaxing way to kick things off!
