It all began when Darren proposed to Emily at Loch Lomond. So it felt perfect for the couple from Devon, to marry in Loch Lomond, with a small intimate wedding as they fell in love with the area in central Scotland.
Emily wore a stunning gown by Essence of Australia, which she bought from Daisy Bridal Collection in Boscombe, Dorset. The dress was a pale silver tone with lace and embroidery. She accessorised it with a bespoke poetry divine tiara, she customised to meet her needs, and earrings by bespoken for to match her own blue topaz and pearl necklace.
The colour scheme was incredibly important to the couple and was the first thing they chose. “we wanted really bright colours and chose purple and orange for everything” the other key elements were butterflies which were pinned everywhere “when people entered into the room they said it was beautiful and intimate, because of all the colours and butterflies”.
Emily Said “Everyone made our day so special, each supplier that we chose was absolutely amazing and what they provided us with was even better than expected. It made the day so much easier because I wasn’t worrying whether things would turn up/get done because everything was already there or had been done. The staff that looked after us during the day and evening at Cameron House were brilliant and we didn’t want for anything.
If it wasn’t for our suppliers then wouldn’t have had such a perfect day and so my main advice is to pick who you use carefully. Decide what you want and then do lots of research into suppliers in the local area, make a shortlist and contact them all explaining what you’re after. If they don’t get back to you or aren’t helpful then don’t use them – their communication to you and their organizational skills is key since you need to trust that they’ll do as you say. Also, if they don’t do exactly the product you want on their website then don’t be afraid to ask if they can customize it to you design – we did that with everything and it really ties the whole theme together and gives it your own personal touch.”
Darren said his best part of the day was “when the Church doors opened to reveal Emily and her Dad,” which was such a special moment. For Emily the car journey from the church to the reception allowed the couple to have a quiet time alone an gave them a chance to talk in the beautiful classic car, with the sun beaming down and a glass of champagne in hand.
