Christina & Paul, Timeless Burgundy Wedding, Feature

Real Wedding: Christina & Paul

Wow, do we have a wedding for you today! Christina and Paul opted for an elegant affair set at the stunning St Andrews in the Square. This lovely couple wanted a traditional Scottish wedding with burgundy and blush accents, and with a venue as beautiful as St Andrews they only needed to add a few finishing touches to have a dream of a wedding day.

Flowers 4 Hours have done a fabulous job creating simply stunning floral decorations with the beaut that is the king protea, blush accents an abundance of green foliage coordinating with the girls’ dresses from Watters. Christina looks every inch the elegant bride in her effortlessly elegant Pronovias gown whilst new husband Paul would make any Highlander proud in the traditional Scottish kilt.  We think you will all agree this wedding is beautiful and Carley Buick has done a wonderful job at capturing it all!

The Engagement 

We got engaged in Barcelona in July 2015 in front of the Fountains of Montjuic. 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.

The Wedding

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. We took inspiration from various things we’d seen at other weddings, blogs, Pinterest and Instagram.

The 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 found my dress in 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.

Bride to Bride

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!
