Sarah: Our wedding was special to us as we had organized to elope and then were lucky to have my immediate family attend as well. The whole day and subsequent honeymoon were organized on the internet! My gorgeous Saja dress was obviously from New York, shoes were purchased via Ruche in USA, and the organization of the venue, bagpiper, celebrant was all done via email. It was a very easy fuss-free event to organize, just the way I like it!
Sarah: It was the easiest part of the wedding to organize! A simple call to Historic Scotland was all it took and it ended up being the cheapest detail in the whole wedding as well (I believe my flowers were more expensive!) The only problem we had was when it rained non-stop the day before hand, and Historic Scotland rang me the day before to advise that the path leading to the castle was flooded and that I may need to look at a back up plan. The back up plan ended up being gumboots! Easy fix!
Sarah: Walking down the 1km aisle towards the castle with my dad behind our Bagpiper playing traditional Scottish ballads, and then entering the castle to see Ben and feel the excitement of what was to come.
Sarah: Don’t get too caught up on an exotic venue, I think the focus should be on the day itself and what the day means to you and your partner. Also feel free to think outside the box when considering venues, consider alternate options that wouldn’t necessarily be associated with a wedding. You might be surprised what you come up with or what may be available once you actually ask.
