Where and when did you get engaged?

Eiffel Tower

What was your wedding date?

26th of April 2014

Where did you get married?

Glen Tanar Ballroom, Aboyne

Why did you choose your venue?

Totally different to anything else we had seen, fell in love straight away! The Ballroom is totally unique with so much space and the grounds are an added bonus!

Did you have a “theme”?

A ‘theme’ was something I tried not to think about/let influence my decisions but I would say ‘simple vintage’.

What was your wedding colour scheme?


Why did you choose Simply Bows and Chair Covers and what were they like to work with?

They had chair covers custom made for the chairs at Glen Tanar they fitted perfect and they offered something totally different to the typical bow: a flower.

What sort of dress did you choose and where from?

My dress was a simple Lace Dress exactly what I was looking for totally me and was very relaxed and comfortable on the day! I bought the dress from Sarah Louise Bridal in Glasgow.

What did your bridesmaids wear?

Full-length Silk and Lace Kiwi Green dresses from Anna Priscilla Bridal in Glasgow

Who was your photographer?

Aboyne Photographic

Who was your florist?

The Secret Garden

How did you arrive at the church/ registry office?

Conveniently my Dad had bought my mum a white Beatle for her birthday the year before…..perfect wedding car!

What “special touches” did you add to your day?

Pick n Mix sweet bags as the favours which everyone seemed to enjoy!
Our table names were all a story about either Dan or Myself and our guests had to guess who!
We made our own signs for the wedding!

What was your favourite part of the day?

My favourite part of the day was the service its self it was everything I had dreamed of and more! Dan and myself had written our own vows so I was very excited to hear his!

Where did you go on honeymoon?

We went to Florida. Did a bit of traveling... Orlando, Miami, Naples and Everglades.

What would be your top tip for another bride to be?

Don’t under estimate how long the small final touches take they are so important as they bring the whole idea of your day together, chip away at them as and when you can!
