It’s a brand new week, so it’s time for a brand new wedding… and today’s wedding is a pretty special one.
Quite often DIY weddings tend to fall under a more rustic feel, but today’s wedding is fresh, modern and bright.
Alan and Jennifer were married in March at The City Halls, Recital Room, Candleriggs, Glasgow. They wanted their wedding to be modern, with a reflection of their architect backgrounds. They chose a striking and fun yellow colour scheme, and crafted some of the amazing details of their wedding. Their wedding aisle is perhaps the most impressive i have ever seen, with some amazing floral arrangements and a frame at the end of the aisle they made themselves.
I love this gorgeous couple, get ready for some amazing inspiration lovelies :-)
Thanks so much to the amazing McBeth Photography for sharing his amazing photography with us today.
Names…. Alan and Jennifer
Wedding Date…. 31st March 2012
The Proposal…. On Jennifer’s 28th birthday. Romantic home made dinner with wishes that came true after the birthday cake candles were blown out. The ring was designed over a period of months with Alan and a specialist ring designer (Joanne MacKellar from Kalo Jewellery) to make it extra special and personal.
The Vision for the day…. Modern city centre spring wedding with hints of yellows.
The Planning process…. We tried to resource as much of the wedding locally within the city as we possibly could. If we couldn’t find something suitable or within budget then we designed and made it ourselves.
The Venue… The City Halls, Recital Room, Candleriggs, Glasgow
The Dress + Accessories….. Catherine Deane – Leticia
Finding the dress…. Wedding shops felt very pressured and didn’t have the simple elegant dresses Jennifer was looking for. Wedding dress websites are a great source to browse in your own time.
Groom’s attire… Slaters Mensware - Lambretta Tailored 3 piece suite with yellow tie.
The Readings + Music…. Brides Entrance – Louis Armstrong – What a Wonderful World (Played by our close friends). Signing the Register – Debussy – Clair de Lune. Bride & Grooms Exit – The Beatles – Here Come the Sun (Played by our close friends). First Dance – My Baby Just Cares for Me – Played Live (with a funky twist) by the wedding band (FNUK). Reading – Oh the Places You’ll Go – by Dr Seuss, read by the bridesman.
Beautiful bridesmaids….. Bridesmaid: Andrea Smith (no relation) ; Dress – Courtesan Boutique. Bridesman: Jonathan Campbell ; Attire – Slaters Mensware – Felini 3 Piece tailored suit
The Flowers… Mood Flowers (www.moodflowers.com). Bridal Bouquet - Hand tied bouquet of yellow flowers to include alstromeria, tulips, daffodils (single and mini spray), and freesia with a light foliage collar. Stems partially bound with ivory organza ribbon and fastened with pearl pins.
The Cake… We designed the cake from sketches ourselves and worked closely with Top Tier Cakes to make it. (http://www.toptiercakes.co.uk). A modern simple 3 tier square white cake on a square base stand. The base layer of the cake is double depth to improve proportions to give it a taller more elegant style. Dressed with a yellow pattern and yellow sugar flower.
Your Photographer…. Craig McBeth – Ninja and photographer extraordinaire!
The Details + Decor…. As architects we were originally struck by the beautiful floral & wheel detailing in the structure of the venue and continued these themes throughout all our invites, menus, notices and cake pattern.
