Real Life Scottish wedding: The Gleneagles Hotel


Rachel & Grant

The Perfect Day


When you plan your wedding months (even years) in advance you imagine exactly how it will go. The details are well thought through so that the day runs smoothly, just exactly as planned. And then a world pandemic starts to unfold just before your wedding day and suddenly everything has to change…

But Rachel and Grant didn’t flinch: they effortlessly transformed their plans, went with the flow and managed to hold the most perfect of wedding days literally days before lockdown.

Guys, this may not have been day you set out to have when we planned this with you all those months ago, but it was still thee most perfect day.  You were not expecting such amazing sun (in March!). You were not planning an outdoor ceremony in the glorious playground. You were not planning an intimate dinner with your closest family and friends. And yet you had the most perfect celebration. We salute you and love both you and your wonderful attitude.

If the days leading up to you wedding were so fluid (for want of a better word!) and you’ve managed to navigate this so skilfully, we know that your marriage and all that lies ahead of you will be the perfect marriage.

Looking forward to seeing you soon (and hugging you in person!) in the not too distant future…

#BigBlueSkyLove,

Alie & Niels xxx
