Carphin House

13 Nov 2017

It’s just so peaceful here. 

That’s something we hear nearly every time a guest first steps out of their car at Carphin House. Surrounded by hills and woodland, it often comes as a shock how quiet and remote Carphin can feel, with it being so close to Dundee, St Andrews and even Edinburgh. We love that the location offers rural escapism, without the hassle! 

It’s not just the sense of tranquility that hits you on the approach to Carphin. Built in 1790, this 9 bedroom, 8 bathroom country mansion was designed to ‘wow’ guests of the time. We love that the house continues in this tradition today, mixing beautiful original features, with all the modern comforts we’ve come to expect. 

Set in 15 acres of private land, the house offers the perfect location to host your friends and family for a three-day Wedfest! 

The beautiful walled garden, rustic woodland, and expansive greenery offers you the perfect space for an outdoor ceremony, canapés and drinks receptions, and fantastic photo ops. 

Inside the house you will get to enjoy the spacious bedrooms, three reception rooms, a fabulous dining space, and an amazing country kitchen with aga, double oven and a huge breakfasting area. 

 From late summer 2018, Carphin is looking to expand with its very own wedding venue - the Loghouse. 

With candlelit ceremony area, built in bar, dance floor and stage, and an eco-friendly design, the Loghouse will be the perfect location for your wedding day.

Capable of holding 180 guests, but still feeling cosy with 50, the Loghouse will offer a unique blank canvas space for you to create the day that really suits you both. 

With the flexibility to choose your own caterers and suppliers, and the assurance of a quality wedding team to help if needed, why not come and see what Carphin has to offer you?

Perfect illuminating décor on your Wedding Day

1 Nov 2017

Here at Limelight Weddings, we add that little touch of magic to your wedding day, with our range of magnificent LED-lit Cherry Blossom trees and décor.

The latest additions to luxury weddings, our unique trees and décor will create a natural, elegant feel in your venue rooms with beautiful soft illumination all day long and into the night, adding space and light into your wedding venue, whether you have chosen a castle, barn, marquee, city hotel or country estate.  

With thousands of tiny lights set into clear cherry blossom flowers and realistic gnarled trunks and branches set on a base of woodland bark, our Cherry Blossom trees are unlike any other type of décor, and create perfect photo opportunities all day long and into the night for you and your guests.

In our portfolio of exclusive hire items this season, we have added a stunning Cherry Blossom ‘Wedding Wishes’ Tree, which is a lovely alternative to your traditional guest book.  We combined a 10 foot tall Cherry Blossom Tree with a white wooden easel and a hand-scribed chalkboard, which invites your wedding guests to write their happy wishes (and advice!) on one of the delicate butterfly, heart, or hummingbird ‘wishes’ tags.  The tags come with their own organza hanging ribbons, and your guests can then just hang their ‘wishes’ on the tree for you.  

By the end of your wedding day, you will have a tree covered with happy wishes from all your wedding guests – beautiful, stylish and a lovely way to record feelings and memories from your guests.

We love feedback from our brides, and here are some emails and notes from some of our weddings…..

“Thank you SO MUCH for the trees, they made such a difference to the night and we’ve been approached by countless people telling us how much they loved them.” – Alex and Lucy - Glasgow

“The tree looked absolutely stunning in the bar area and we received many compliments about it. I loved the bow that was on it, too. Thank you for providing a very efficient and easy way to organise service to us. I will have no hesitation in using your service again”. Mrs D - Broughty Ferry

“Hi Lin, Thank you very much, the trees were amazing and money well spent. They really finished off the venue perfectly.” Lucy and Sean - Dundee 

“Thank you so much for the beautiful cherry blossom tree & bay trees for our wedding day.  Lin, you were so lovely and helpful & couldn’t do enough for us! You even found exact matching bows for the trees to our colour scheme! Our rooms looked amazing!! Thank you again!!” Rebecca and Scott – Huntingtower

New for this season as well, we have combined some of our most popular wedding hire décor into one beautiful package – the Enchanted Fairytale wedding package.  This fabulous package combines beautiful elements from a wide range of décor, to give you flexibility when decorating your venue, so that it reflects you and your personality. This package includes two Cherry Blossom trees and the gorgeous ‘Wedding Wishes’ Tree, a flower-covered wedding archway, pedestal stands, bay trees, candy and popcorn stations and so much more……

We love getting to know our brides and working with you to develop ideas, whether it’s candelabra lights, marquee décor or orangery tree lighting, and as always, we provide a full hire and set-up service for you, so that your décor is just waiting for you to arrive on your wedding day.  Elegant, beautiful and exclusive – just as your wedding day should be.

Jenny’s Cakes

13 Oct 2017

Jenny’s Cakes is a professional artisan wedding cake bakery, started in 1986. Led by husband-and-wife owners Tom and Jenny Breen, Jenny’s Cakes operates from professional bakery premises (based in a renovated blacksmiths’ forge), attached to the couple’s cottage in the scenic Clyde Valley. Jenny started Jenny’s Cakes after completing four years professional bakery training and five years practical experience.  Tom joined the business in 1997, following an award-winning career in precision engineering.

Jenny and Tom are involved in all stages of wedding cake production, from initial client consultations to design, baking, assembly, decoration and delivery and set-up at the venue. Jenny’s Cakes now includes two additional staff- Christine (main focus on admin and client communications), and Audrey (mainly assisting with sugar-crafting and cake decorating tasks.)

The team at Jenny’s Cakes are delighted to have received a nomination (based on client’s feedback) for the prestigious 2017 VOWS Awards, and are looking forward to attending the awards ceremony on November.

After pioneering the concept of ‘Tea and Tasters’ for over a decade, the couple added the ‘Garden Room’ some six years ago- this is a beautiful dedicated area adjoining the bakery, purpose-built for client consultations, with a wide range of beautiful wedding cake styles on display.

Clients visiting the bakery sit down with Jenny and Tom in the Garden Room for a personal consultation (typically around an hour) over a nice cuppa and some tasty cake samples.  “Our ethos is all about personal service and getting to know our clients”, says Tom.

“We believe that it’s really important to devote time to each couple, to understand their needs- we like to discuss all aspects of the wedding, including floral elements, venue decor, colour schemes, guest numbers, the all-important wedding gown details, allergy issues and, of course, cake budget”, said Jenny.  

“We then help pull all the ideas together into a coherent design, creating design sketches, and then talk the couple through options and prices,”  added Tom.

All the details are carefully documented and followed up with a detailed email confirmation. Keeping in contact before the wedding helps to provide reassurance in the lead-up to the big day.

(Cake above shown at Trump Turnberry)

Tom delivers and sets up each wedding cake personally all over Scotland, assembling larger cakes on-site and add any finishing touches, before finalising the hand-over to the venue’s wedding team.

After the wedding, clients are asked to give honest feedback via customer satisfaction surveys and Facebook reviews, and hopefully a precious ‘cutting the cake’ photo to complete the process!

“Hi Jenny & Tom,

We just wanted to say thank you again for our beautiful wedding cake. We were so happy with it and everyone still comments on how delicious it was. Thank you again for our stunning cake and helping to make our big day perfect.

Kindest Regards, Adriana & Ricardo xx” (Mount Stuart, Isle of Bute)

“We would highly recommend Jenny and Tom!

They are amazing at what they do! Our wedding cake was stunning, and we had so many people comment it was the nicest they had seen.

Tasted every bit as good as it looked. Jenny and Tom are very friendly and helpful.

Mr and Mrs Todd” (wedding at The Radstone Hotel).

Jenny’s Cakes is one of a select few businesses with a 5-star Facebook rating. Jenny’s cakes facebook reviews can be found on https://www.facebook.com/pg/jennyscakesscotland/reviews/

Jenny’s Cakes occupies a niche in the wedding cake market, between the one-person home-based bakers on the one hand and the large-scale bakers who make thousands of cakes each year on the other.

The company carefully assesses the bakery schedule at least two years ahead, and limit their wedding cake commissions to a maximum of five weddings each week. Where cakes are very large or complex, they may restrict this to  just two or three wedding cakes per week!

By carefully planning the amount of work they do, and meeting and getting to know clients, each cake is just as unique and individual as their clients- just as no two couples are the same, no two cakes should be the same either!

(Potential clients are advised to book at least a year prior to their wedding date, especially for weddings in the peak summer season.)

Informal Weddings Becoming More Popular

10 Oct 2017

‘Informal weddings are becoming increasingly popular as more couples choose to break with tradition and opt for a relaxed approach to their big day. This means injecting some un-traditional, creative ideas into your celebration, and breaking a few of the established rules. 

The result is often a more personalised wedding with elements that reflect your taste, style and sense of fun. 

This is the story of Val Gannon and Kenny Glasgow’s informal wedding at Winton

Castle in August. The couple kindly answer some questions below about their wedding. 

Why did you choose Winton Castle for your wedding? 

“We wanted to have a friendly, relaxed wedding with plenty of space for guests to move around in, rather than a formal ceremony and meal,” said Val Gannon.

“The ceremony was held inside as the weather in the morning didn’t permit it to be in the gardens. There was a drinks reception with Prosecco, beer or soft drinks followed by a hog roast BBQ with informal seating inside and outside.

“A ‘Pimp your Prosecco Cocktail Bar’ was set up in the bar in the Octagon Room, and the band Northern Star provided the music for the party in the evening. (Northern Star recently played at the official Queensberry Crossing Opening Party at Hopetoun House!)

“The menu was Bulgarian-themed. The centre piece was a wedding cake made by Flourgirl Cakes from Haddington, with lilac ombre and lace with pearls.

“The food and drinks were outstanding and we received very good comments from all our guests. They all felt that there had been plenty of food and enjoyed the ease with which it was delivered, especially the supper.

“We also had a ‘Bride’s Cog’ drink going round our guests which is an Orkney tradition. Paul gave us access to the kitchen to heat it up.

“Paul did a great job of making sure everything was being attended to and we felt very relaxed with it all.”

image

What were the most memorable moments?

“The most memorable moments were the children playing outside, the beautiful ceremony and the photos in the gardens, to name just a few.

“The day was all wonderful. Our guests had nothing but praise for the venue and the relaxed atmosphere. They enjoyed being able to use all the different rooms.”

image

How would you describe Winton’s ambience?

“The ambience was very relaxed, like a family home. It had a very personal feel to it, and the fact that we could go anywhere in the castle and grounds made it very unique.

“Although the bedrooms were so opulent, we never felt that we couldn’t touch things in them.”

image

Do you have any ideas on how we could improve our hospitality?

“I’m not sure you can improve on perfection…! [However,] It would be nice if a return stay for an anniversary event outside the busy season had been included in the price. And perhaps complimentary Champagne in the bridal suite!”

Winton Castle is worth considering for more informal weddings; the East Lothian castle is a unique blend of grand but informal, impressive but casual, hence their strapline ‘intimacy on a grand scale’.

So, if you want to break with tradition and have a more informal, personalised style of wedding, you could contact the wedding team at Winton Castle and they will help develop your ideas. More on Winton Castle on their website https://www.wintoncastle.co.uk/

Thanks to Darroch Photography for the photographs.’

Humanist Society Scotland Ceremonies

2 Oct 2017

Humanist Society Scotland is the most trusted provider of Humanist ceremonies in Scotland. There are over a hundred HSS Registered Celebrants across Scotland, performing thousands of wedding ceremonies each year. 

In February of this year Humanist Society Scotland became the first and only provider of Humanist ceremonies to be recognised in law by the Scottish Parliament - which means that our Celebrants are not temporarily authorised to conduct legal marriages so you can be confident when you book with us! Scotland remains one of only eight countries, and the only country in the UK, to legally recognise Humanist Weddings; we’re proud to be the organisation who campaigned for legal Humanist marriage in Scotland, and that because of our work thousands of couples have benefited. 

But what is it that makes our ceremonies so popular?

1/ You can have a legal ceremony anywhere you choose!

This can be up a mountain, by a Loch, in a hotel or in your own garden - you have amazing flexibility, and the only limit to your wedding plans is your imagination (and sometimes the weather, it is Scotland after all!) This means that you really can have the wedding you always dreamed about. Fancy a big wedding in a castle with all your friends and family? Prefer to elope and get away from it all? That’s fine. Because you can have your ceremony anywhere, you aren’t going to feel like your venue is too small or too big, you choose what feels right for you. It also means that a Humanist wedding can suit any budget. Perfect!

2/ You can craft the ceremony you want - you really can do it your own way!

The perfect ceremony is key to making sure you have the right day for you, and it should be as individual as you are. It can be long or short, write your own vows or get one of our Celebrants to help you find the right vows to suit you. Include music, readings and symbolic gestures, or have a simple ceremony with just the legalities. You can even bungee jump at the end (if you can find a brave Celebrant!). Speaking of which, our Celebrants are as unique as you are! We have a lot of Celebrants to choose from, so you are able to pick the person that best suits your style and personality, to make sure that your ceremony is perfect for you.

3/ You can include symbolic ceremonies

One of the things that make HSS ceremonies so popular are the wide range of symbolic gestures that can be incorporated, to make your ceremony really meaningful and special. There are a vast number of these, including traditional Scottish Ceremonies and more; Drinking from the Quaich, Handfasting, Jumping the Broom, a Sand Ceremony, Lighting Candles, Warming of the Rings, Planting a Tree - to name just a few. If you want to incorporate a special tradition from your country of origin, or if there is a tradition that has developed within your own family, or even if you want to start one of your own - the possibilities are endless! (Picture of Handfasting courtesy of the lovely Caro Weiss Photography!)

4/ You are supporting a charity!

A lot of people approach the HSS to conduct their ceremony because they like the feeling that they are making a difference, and want to contribute to the good work of our charity. As well as being partners in the Equal Marriage campaign, we continue to fight for a fairer society and education system, for gender and LGBTQI rights and equality, as well as by supporting those in need through the Glasgow T-Run (an outreach project and soup kitchen) and providing assistance to those suffering persecution abroad. You can find out more about the work that we do, and how you can get involved, on our website.

5/ You are covered by the HSS Promise.

You can see all the details about the HSS Promise on our website, but the main things to know are; If an emergency befalls your Celebrant we will provide cover for your ceremony, we are also covered by public liability insurance - in the unlikely event that either of these should be necessary. Our Celebrants are all trained to the very highest standard, and their training continues throughout their professional career, to make sure that they are the best they can be. 

Every HSS Registered Celebrant has the backing of our national charity; when you book with us, so do you.  You’re in safe hands with HSS!

If you still aren’t convinced, let some of our happy couples tell you why they loved having an HSS Ceremony, in their own words: 

“we couldn’t have asked for a more professional and very happy service. It was personal and full of laughter” 

“(Our Celebrant) put us right at ease and seemed just as excited as us about our upcoming wedding!  We really enjoyed helping to write the ceremony.  It was nice to be involved every step of the way.

The ceremony itself really was wonderful. There was a lot of laughter and quite a few tears! We did an old German wedding tradition in where the couple cut a heart out of a bedsheet and walk through together to symbolise the start of a new life together.  My husband is German and we had many German guests, so it was important to have something from German culture in our ceremony.  

After the ceremony, quite a few of our guests told us it was the most beautiful wedding ceremony they’d ever been to…It may be a cliche, but it really was the best day of our lives.” 

“(Our Celebrant) truly was wonderful and made us feel relaxed at every stage of the wedding planning as she was always there to help whenever needed.” 

“the service itself was by far the best ceremony I’ve ever heard. All the comments from the guests were of complete joy and surprise that a wedding ceremony could be that involved and happy. He made our day incredibly special. Thank goodness for humanism in Scotland allowing us to have the best ceremony in the most beautiful location.” 

So if you are looking for a unique, bespoke, carefully crafted, meaningful ceremony, that also contributes to charity - get in touch with us today, and start on the journey to your perfect ceremony!
