As soon as I saw the photos (captured by the talented twosome, The Gibsons) for this gorgeous spring wedding, I was in love. Ali and Iain were married last year at the stunning Roman Camp Hotel in Callander or, as it’s better known in our office, the pink hotel!
It’s not just that getting married in a pink hotel is awesome (which it clearly is) but everything about this wedding was the perfect, most pretty picture of the season. The sun was shining, the gardens were green and lush with speckles of pink flowers dotted around, and everyone looks relaxed and happy. My favourite kind of wedding.
Read about the rest of Ali and Iain’s special day from the bride’s perspective…
We loved the quirkiness of the Roman Camp Hotel in Callander and that there are so many little spots to relax – it’s so cosy and homely.
We loved the gorgeous gardens (brilliant for wedding pics) and the fact the River Teith runs right beside it.
It’s such a beautiful, historic venue both inside and out with loads of original features and real log fires.
We didn’t go for a package; we had different menus to choose from and plenty of wine options!
Our venue offered us a meal tasting prior to the wedding which we are so glad we did as it was amazing and really helped us decide on the food.
We didn’t have a theme as such; I was just going for a soft, romantic shabby chic rustic look.
I adore flowers so they were a big part of the day – we tied posies to the end of each aisle chair during the ceremony, and we had jam jars and candelabra dressed with flowers and foliage too.
We had our ceremony in the Library, which is a beautiful room with dark oak wood floors and walls.
It was very cosy and intimate, and even had a secret chapel at the back of the room where we signed the register.
We were fortunate that the sun was shining all day for our wedding, so we had our drinks reception outside in the garden area at the front of the venue.
Roman Camp had recently acquired outdoor seats which were great as it allowed guests to sit down and enjoy their champagne in the sun!
My highlight was definitely the ceremony. We had a humanist service and the whole thing was so intimate and personal to us.
Both of our sisters lit candles at the beginning of the ceremony, and after we were officially married we lit a third candle which represented us joining together.
We had written our own vows too – the whole thing was just so heartfelt and meaningful!
