Ian proposed to me on my 21st birthday in our home, which I would have to say is probably the best birthday present I could every ask for.
Planning the wedding as a little bit of a nightmare, because of all the restrictions from covid. We didn’t know how many guests we could have or what restrictions would apply to us, but we managed to still get our perfect day that we had hoped for.
Our theme was very simply. We wanted an elegant rustic wedding; were everyone could feel relaxed and enjoy themselves. We decided that we wanted to get married in the same church that both of our parents had got married, which felt really romantic and gave an extra special moment to our big day. We choses the Mount Stuart House, Isle of Bute for our venue and it was beautiful. It perfectly fit the theme.
When looking for dresses a had an idea in my head about the kind of style that I wanted. I wanted something free flowing and simple, but elegant. Luckily the dress I choice was very similar, thou I tried on 12 dresses before I found that perfect one, but it was worth it.
I found my dream dress at Bijoux Bridal in Hamilton, Scotland. The ladies in the shop were amazing and really listen to me. I felt I was in safe hands with them and didn’t need to worry about anything.
I decided to choose the dress of my dreams, the Doliana (style 69570). It gave me the most beautiful silhouette, and I felt like a true Scottish princess. The material was stunning and felt so elegant and regal. I loved to little sparkle that was created by the delicate beaded belt and the overall sophistication that was create. I also adored the veil that I parted with the dress. The veil (69545) was the veil of dreams for me. The lace detailing on the traditional Cathedral length petal train flowed beautifully behind me and gave an extra level of beauty to the look.
I was only 10 minutes late to the service, but it was worth it. The sun came out just vas I was walking down the aisle which was just perfect. I was so excited to see Ian waiting for me at the altar, thou I was I little nervous for walking into the church and having everyone staring but once I got into the swing of thing, I was fine.
Thank you again to Kate and Sean for sharing your lovely photos and story, wishing you all the very best for the future.
