A Beautiful Scottish Wedding
By admin | 30.03.2016 | 0 Comments
Overcoming the elements is something you can plan for; you can have wet weather contingencies in place, alternate transportation arranged and an army of umbrellas on standby. Needless to say therefore that despite 1ft of snow, hurricane Henry and freezing temperatures, February saw The Angels create a wonderful wedding in the wilds of Scotland.
Strong and imposing in 100 acres of manicured gardens stood our venue for the week, the beautifully restored Kinross House. Alongside the 17th century country house, an 80ft marquee fit snugly in between topiary hedges, soon to be filled with expectant guests and the newly wed bride and groom.
Inside Kinross House, teams set to work to dress the reception area, transforming it with floral works of art and twinkling candles floating in a multitude of polished glass column vases. Outside two large stone urns flanked the main entrance with 10ft floral garlands pouring out and cascading down the staircase onto the gravel driveway.
The wedding day arrived and the house became bustling with activity with guests donning their suits and dresses ready for the wedding ceremony.
As guests departed for the local Parish Church, The Grand Salon was filled with taupe and blush French style dining chairs, and the tables were draped in heavy aubergine linen awaiting their high floral displays including orchids, ranunculus and sweet smelling roses.
The ceremony was soon over and the wedding breakfast drew to a close. Guests made their way down the lantern lined pathway to the stone entrance way and into the marquee. Gasps of awe filled the air at the sight of their surroundings. What had externally appeared to be a white rectangular marquee, had been transformed into a split level oval marquee, centered with a large mirrored bar and luxury seating zones. Metres and metres of bespoke taupe draping had been pleated and hung, and chandeliers had been hoisted into place giving a glamorous and sophisticated feel.
The first dance saw the couple spinning around the dance floor starting the fun that would continue long into the early morning. The guests were wowed with an entertainment menu boasting soulful singers, record breaking bagpipers, ceilidh dancers and a DJ set to rival any Ibiza club. The bar was a constant flow of bespoke cocktails and the room was filled with smiles and laughter, the bride and groom never once leaving the dance floor.
Morning arrived and while guests gathered in the reception hall to wave goodbye to the bride and groom, the Angels went about the house removing all trace of the day before. Although the grounds are now bare and the styling items are all back in the warehouse, the memory of this fantastic event will live with us forever.
