HANDLING PERFECTIONISM

PASSION AND PERFECTIONISM

I’m always on the look out for inspiration, whether I hear some tender vows on a film, or I see a version of a ritual in a TV series or in a magazine, or perhaps a colleague mentions something new and different and my ears prick up.

CASTLE WEDDING LOCATIONS

THE NORTH OF SCOTLAND CASTLE TRAIL

There are so many castles in Northern Scotland that there's a 'Castle Trail'!  Be inspired by castles that would be amazing settings for your ceremony of marriage or vow renewal.

AUTUMNAL WEDDINGS

COSY AND COLOURFUL

There's something that feels very cosy about an Autumn wedding and they are often really beautiful, especially if you love trees.  Brides and grooms to be, often choose rich oranges, reds, browns and yellows as their colour scheme, and outfits and floral and harvest arrangements match.  Some decorate the indoors with autumnal colours, but some even go as far as choosing an outdoor location to surround themselves with colour in nature.

LEGAL MARRIAGE IN SCOTLAND

YOUR MARRIAGE APPLICATION CAN BE SIMPLE

Applying to be legally married in Scotland is easy if you have the necessary paperwork to hand and can adhere to the specific timings - you cannot apply more than three calendar months before, and no later than 29 days before.  Some couples have found it time consuming to bring together all the paperwork needed to apply, but if you do everything you need to do in advance, it's then very simple to include the necessary legal elements as part of your ceremony on the day, so read on to find out what's involved.
