Scotland Garden Wedding

Lindsay & Ben

Relaxed, thoughtful, intimate, considered and fun – their wedding day was a reflection of their loves and lives together, celebrating in the city where they first met.

With living in Australia they appointed Knot & Pop to manage all aspects of their wedding planning. Getting to know the couple, we discovered lots of lovely stories about how they met, the full moon first date they went on, their current loves of food and wine, and more. From this we designed a day for them that mirrored some of their life moments and loves, for a highly personal celebration.

The Idea

With the natural surrounds of the wedding venue, the look & feel of the wedding day complemented the surrounds, bedding into the natural setting and speaking of a secret garden charm.

As if foraged from the grounds, the main design for the wedding saw an abundance of flowers mix with grapes, rose-hips, blackberries, tomato vines and mint leaves. The invitation planted the seed of the idea with a flower seed packet Save the Date, and poster design main illustrative invite.

Drawing on their love of wine, wine bottles formed the signage, with the table plan appearing along a Grape Corridor with name tags hanging off vines. Guests walked through the Grape Corridor to find their table number, that then lead them into the dining setting that saw wooden tables dressed in vines, flowers, foraged fruits, tapered candles and coloured glassware, with wooden handled cutlery and lots of artisanal styling touches.

The Details

 

Food was rich in local produce, using the best of in-season Scottish ingredients, presented in a rustic yet refined manner to suit the overall wedding feel. Come evening, we designed a Moon Gin Bar that appeared in a secret garden clearing. Complete with star and moon lantern decorations, and custom made moon and star straws with a bespoke photo-booth backdrop, the area was a wonderful surprise to the guests and the perfect place to serve the couples signature cocktails from.

Guests received a goody bag on departure – with bespoke bottled hangover cure, hand-made soaps and Scottish short bread. While the couple left with a gorgeous flower press guest book – the perfect keep-sake idea for their memorable day.
