The 5th of November has to be a pretty memorable date for a wedding…
When Beth and Jof first told their friends and family they were getting married in a castle in Scotland in winter they anticipated that it would be beautiful, but maybe just a little bit cold and possibly even a touch snowy! What no one expected was a gorgeous sunny winter’s day. It was absolutely perfect. The sky was as blue as a summers day, with gorgeous bursts of winter sun low in the sky.
From the minute we arrived we were made to feel so welcome and so much a part of the day. Beth and Jof – your vision of a relaxed , fun, get together to celebrate your wedding abolsutely came true. Comlongon Castle worked so well and being married by Jof’s Dad made it all the more personal and special. The cosy fires and candlelight created the perfect atmosphere for a fab house-party.
It was an absolute pleasure to tell your wedding story. Here is a little preview for you to enjoy.
The wedding cake was made by a family friend and we loved how much care and attention had been put into it – so special.
The speeches were awesome and concluded with all of Beth and Jof’s guests singing a rendition of Home & Away’s theme tune – and we went home with the tune in our minds – sweet!
And then all and Beth and Jof’s guests were invited outside for some fireworks to celebrate their wedding – remember, remember the fifth of November!
The party began with a very romantic first dance…
Balmoral Hotel weddings have their own kind of magic. For starters you get to literally have the red carpet rolled out for you and be treated like royalty… and then (perhaps even more special) you get access to enviable rooftop views.
What could be more perfect than getting married in your garden in Edinburgh (especially when your garden has a lawn that was almost designed for outdoor parties)?
To say we’d been looking forward to this wedding for quite a while may well be the biggest understatement of the year.
These two were among the few who set a wedding date for 2020 and stuck to it. Yes the plans changed slightly along the way (think plan A, plan B…) but in the end celebrating their wedding in the spectacular Barnbougle Castle with their closest family and friends was nothing short of perfect and they wouldn’t have changed a thing.
