Wood and ivy inspired wedding day at Logie Country House, Inverurie
07When Sarah and Graham decided to plan their wedding in six months, some people doubted they would be able to pull it off.
But not only did the resourceful couple manage to perfectly plan their wedding day, they managed to create a woodland-inspired wedding that Pinterest could only dream of.
Read about the wedding in bride Sarah’s own words below…
Graham asked me to marry him at the top of the Eiffel Tower in Paris over a glass of champagne – it was so romantic! To pay tribute to such a special moment, our favours were little silver Eiffel Tower place setting holders which guests could take home.
Every member of the wedding party was staying at Logie, so the night before the wedding was great fun. There were about 20 of us there and we had lasagne and trifle for tea, then I hopped in the hot tub with my ‘maids before an early(-ish!) night.
We’d driven past Logie Country House so many times and it just looked like a perfect location for a wedding. We wanted to have our ceremony in the stately drawing room and then have our meal and reception in the ballroom, which had a more barn-like feel.
I work as an event organiser so did most of the planning myself, but it was always good to have friends and family as a sounding board. For example, I asked my bridesmaid if she thought I could organise a wedding in six months. She said I could, and so I did!
My friend Mike piped me down the aisle to Highland Cathedral. When I walked in everyone in the room swivelled around to look at me; it was a huge gulp moment and I really had to stop myself from crying.
It was hard choosing meals for our wedding breakfast because we wanted something that all our guests would enjoy. We finally settled on beef or monkfish with a trio of desserts.
The band we booked are called Waterfront and they were fantastic. The main reason we chose them, other than liking how they sounded, was that they did a cover of N-Trance’s Set You Free – we loved that!
We had fireworks for the end of the night; it was something that we had our hearts set on from the beginning. It ended up raining during it but we didn’t care – it was a lovely end to our day regardless!
Planning a wedding in six months was sometimes tough, but for the most part I enjoyed it! We had a great time and the day flew by.
My advice to couples currently planning their weddings would be stick to what you really want and what actually means something to you. It can be so easy to get carried away with things you don’t need.
