A Wedding on the Banks of Loch Lomond

Our September Wedding of the Month on The Wedding Community is the real wedding story of Kay and Mark, and today we have more beautiful pictures from their wedding, photographed by Eilidh Sutherland of ES Photography and Social Media.

Kay and Mark had their wedding ceremony outside overlooking Loch Lomond on a glorious sunny day, and Kay and her bridesmaids arrived at the wedding on a speed boat! They didn’t want to have a wedding style as such, so they just created a beautiful wedding that they call a ‘just us’ style! We adore the colours of this wedding; the mint and teal complement each other perfectly, and the abundance of hessian and lace work so well together. As Kay and Mark married in Scotland, they chose to include traditional Scottish flowers in their floral arrangements…

“I’m not sure how to describe our wedding style really, it was just… us! Our colours were pale mint green and teal, and we used a lot of hessian, brown paper, lace and fun patterns. Our flowers were very classic and Scottish – a mixture of ivory calla lilies, roses, thistle and pink heather, which we used in our bouquets, pew ends, centrepieces and table decorations.

“We had our wedding ceremony outside overlooking Loch Lomond, and we had our reception in the Lodge on Loch Lomond which has beautiful panoramic views over the loch. Our guest book was a beautiful leather bound teal engraved book bought online and we decorated the table with vases, a chalkboard and some flowers from my mum’s garden.

“Our minister was a very good family friend, and a friend of Mark’s did our wedding sermon. I was piped down the jetty by our bagpiper, and walked down the aisle with my mum and dad for the first part, and then they went ahead and I walked the rest by myself – I wanted it to reflect that I am equally both of theirs, but also independent.

“We named our tables after Scottish beaches we’d been to together, and our favours were little bags of marshmallows in funky patterned paper bags tied with different shades of ribbon – we also made a donation to a diabetes research charity that is close to our hearts.”

An Autumn Styled Wedding Shoot at Deer Park

As it is September and today is considered by some to be the first day of autumn, this gorgeous autumn styled shoot at Deer Park is just perfect.

We love the colours of autumn, and the creative team behind this wedding shoot have really captured the essence of autumn in all its glory.

We love the natural styling of this shoot, especially the use of leaves as place names, seasonal pumpkins, squashes and apples as decor, and the beautiful floral arrangements in rich autumnal colours. To us, this is exactly what autumn weddings are all about!

Big thanks to Venetia Norrington Photography for sharing this incredible autumn styled shoot at Deer Park.
