CHOOSING YOUR SCOTTISH LOCATION

When it comes to choosing your wedding venue, you might wonder where to start? Or you might have already visited Scotland and fallen in love with a particular venue and/ or area of Scotland. Your wedding planner will guide you through the process, usually starting with an in-depth discovery call to understand your preferences around rural locations such as the Scottish Highlands, the picturesque Isle of Skye, or whether you have a desire to be married closer to a city, such as Edinburgh, Aberdeen or Glasgow.

Scotland is home to many stunning, ancient castles, manor houses, country estates and exclusive use properties in various locations across the country. Scotland has castles located in rural places, north of the country, and also nearby to cities and towns meaning your wedding planner will most certainly find a stunningly beautiful wedding venue that works for you and your guests.

When sourcing a wedding venue your wedding planner will take into account local amenities, accommodations and accessibility for your guests. This could be the first time your guests have visited Scotland, so therefore your wedding planner will ensure their experience is one they will remember for a lifetime.

SCOTTISH TRADITIONS TO INCLUDE IN YOUR WEDDING

 

Whilst it’s not mandatory for the groom to wear a traditional Scottish kilt, your wedding planner will assist in finding the best tartan, or if your family has Scottish ancestry we can help to locate your family tartan.  The Scottish bag pipes are a must at any Scottish wedding, and  add an element of classic tradition to any Scottish wedding, Your bag piper can be discreet and only play once during the celebrations if your set on having a less traditional wedding. Typically your piper would pipe as guests are arriving, piping the bride and groom up the aisle, as well as piping the bride and groom as they are announced into dinner.

SCOTTISH CASTLES AND VENUES

Could there be anywhere more romantic than a Scottish castle playing host to your wedding celebrations?

Your wedding planner will work with you to create a truly once in a lifetime experience. Scotland’s castles are popular with locals and tourists alike, meaning bookings are usually made around 12 months prior if you have a specific date in mind during peak wedding season. If castle’s are not your thing, and you prefer something a little less traditional, don’t panic. Scotland has a multitude of venue options to suit almost every couple. From glamorous city hotels, country houses, manor estates and churches; your wedding planner will help you to source the most suitable wedding venue for your wedding celebrations.
