Venue – Blair Castle
Fiona and Jeremy’s wedding day was an elegant and emotional celebration. Rachel Sermani sang during their wedding ceremony which was a wonderful surprise for all the guests.
The weather was a driek day (to use a Scottish expression) so the drawing rooms on the first floor hosted the drinks reception.
The staff of Prestige caterers quickly and efficiently transformed the Ballroom from the ceremony into the wedding reception and Planet Flowers worked their wonderful magic. The couples inspiration for Gemma was that they wanted to create a forest feel on the tables – I think we can safely say this is what we got!
Planet Flowers also helped create a solution to a problem in advance of the wedding day as Blair Castle had mandatory works that were taking place on the castle roof. Causing the front of the castle to be masked in scaffolding however we feel with the work of the Blair Castle team and the Planet Team the effects were rarely noticed.
After the delicious dinner, cocktails were served in Banvie Hall and out of the distance came a Beating of the Retreat. It was a magical surprise and everyone was outside watching just as the sun was going down.
The day of surprises was not yet over however. The thoughtful groom had decided to surprise his new wife by dawning the kilt along with all of his grooms men. The gents prepared in the castle and had some whisky to accompany them, then just before the 1st dance they entered the ballroom to a stunned Bride.
A stunning setting for a beautiful wedding for an amazing couple.
