Save the Dates

These days it is quite common for couples to live a distance away from their close friends and family, seeing them only at important occasions.  Weddings are one such event in a couple’s life where favourite people should be present.  Because these loved ones may have to travel a long distance for the wedding, there is a trend emerging to hold a “weekend wedding” instead of a “wedding day” which ends once the clock strikes 12. Weekend wedding celebrations become more of a mini holiday allowing you to spend more quality time with the people you care about the most. If you are...

Why an elopement might be right for you

An elopement couple enjoy a walk in the mountains on their wedding day

Over the last few years, thanks to the pandemic, the perception of elopements, or eloping, has changed.  The past stigma of running away to Gretna Green to get married has thankfully faded.

But an elopement can be a stunning adventure and a truly once-in-a-lifetime experience.  If you are currently engaged and on the fence about eloping, read on, to find out whether it’s the right...

A summer wedding with Lindsay, Scottish Highland wedding planner

One of the reasons that I adore living here in the Highlands of Scotland, and especially within a National Park, is the amazingly different seasons we get here.  Each is special in its own way and any seasonal wedding, whether a winter, spring, autumn or summer wedding will be set against a stunning backdrop. Today I am thinking of the summer months and what makes a summer wedding so special.  The clincher has to be the amount of daylight we get, it is around 18 hours each day, and who can say that this isn’t a major plus when it comes to enjoying life and celebrating something...
