Real Wedding – Christina & Paul

The couple crossed paths in 2010 during a mutual friends birthday, Paul proposed in Barcelona 2015 in front of the Fountains of Montjuic. A year later the couple tied the knot in a traditional Scottish wedding that was beyond elegant and natural.

Paul got down on one knee with my great granny’s engagement ring which I had always loved. It was very romantic and a very special but surreal moment which we’ll never forget. Christina

Choosing the Wedding Dress

I found it relatively easy to choose my dream dress as I knew I wanted a fitted dress with lace. I wanted a dress which was modern but elegant. I purchased my dress from a shop called Anne Priscilla Bridal in Glasgow.

They had the most amazing selection of dresses and the staff there completely understood what style of dress I was looking for. I felt that the Pronovias dress which I chose was elegant and suited to the classic venue. The fabric was amazing quality and it was such an easy dress to wear all day.

Wedding Day Style

We never started out with a particular theme/style in mind for our big day. We thought the interior of our venue was so beautiful that it wasn’t so necessary to have a bold style. We wanted a traditional Scottish wedding that was elegant and natural.

Any DIY décor elements?

We took inspiration from various things we’d seen at other weddings, blogs, Pinterest and Instagram. I had made a few chalk boards

What was your favorite moment from the day?

Dancing with our nearest and dearest to Loch Lomond (a traditional Scottish song) at the end of the night!

If you could do it all over again, what would you change?

I would love to do it all over again as it really was the best day ever but I wouldn’t change a thing.

Any tips that you can give to future brides?

Don’t get too stressed over the minor details. Nobody really cares! I threw a bridezilla fit the day before the wedding when we were setting up the venue as I thought the speakers looked huge. In hindsight…it really didn’t matter! The whole venue looked great even with the speakers. Remind yourself that your wedding guests aren’t going to notice the tiny details which haven’t gone to plan. All that really matters is that everyone is having a good time!

I would like to personally thank the lovely couple Christina & Paul for sharing their magical day with us, we are truly inspired, as well as the team at B Wedding Invitations for providing the information.
