A Family Summer Wedding at Gilmerton House

16 Oct 2018

We are very grateful to Lee and Chris Lothian for this wedding feature, based on feedback on their wedding at Gilmerton House on Saturday 19th of May 2018.

How many other wedding venues did you visit?

“We narrowed our list of wedding venues to 15 and went to look at 5,” say Lee and Chris Lothian, the bride and groom. “Gilmerton House was the fifth and we knew straight away it was the perfect venue for us.

“Exclusive use was really important to us.   We wanted to be in a place where we would only be surrounded by our friends and family.   In the end, we had 58 guests keeping it to our closest friends and family only.

“We also wanted somewhere with beautiful grounds where we could have photos taken, and have part of our day outside if the weather was nice (which luckily it was!).”

Why did you choose Gilmerton House as your wedding venue?

 “It is a truly beautiful venue inside and out with stunning grounds.   The impressive drive up to the front of the house lets you see how grand Gilmerton House really is.  

“When we arrived, we were welcomed into the marble hall with its stunning fireplace and beautiful decor.   We were shown the two amazing rooms we could get married in, together with the 10 bedrooms, and a huge room with amazing light for the bridal party to get ready in.  

“We fell in love with the venue and could picture ourselves having exactly the Wedding we wanted at Gilmerton House. The venue matched our ideas really well which made it easier for us to plan our wedding.  The staff were also really friendly, welcoming and great to deal with.

“The venue is exclusive use and allowed for 24 of our guests to stay with us for the full weekend.   This meant we would be able to have our closest family and friends with us all weekend which is exactly what we wanted.” 

Did you get your ideal date or did you have to compromise?

“We booked the venue almost immediately after viewing it for the first time.   Gilmerton was extremely flexible when it came to choosing our date which allowed us to have our ideal wedding date: ‘a Saturday in May’.”

How did your wedding day unfold?

“As neither of us have ever been married before we really had no idea how the running order of a wedding should go!   The wedding manager of Gilmerton House and coordinator from the catering company listened to our ideas and helped us to plan and add structure to our day.   We really appreciated their input.  

“We both got ready separately in the house on the morning of the wedding.   Our guests arrived around 2pm for a Groom’s Reception accompanied by music from our string quartet.  

“Our ceremony took place at 3pm followed by a group photo.  We then had drinks and canapés outdoors thanks to the glorious weather where we had a gin bar set up and music continued from the string quartet.  

“Speeches were at 5pm followed by the wedding breakfast.   We cut our cake just before 8pm and then danced the night away to our band with our guests until midnight.   The venue facilitated this really well and made it a stress-free day for us.”

Which rooms did you select for your ceremony and reception?

“Our ceremony took place in the beautiful drawing room downstairs. This leads directly outside into the gardens where we hosted an outdoor drinks reception.  

“Our evening reception took place upstairs in the amazing oak lined Music Room.   We really enjoyed being able to use the full house and grounds on our wedding day.”

How did you choose your menu?

“The venue provided us with a list of trusted caterers.   Each offered something different and you could really make it your own.  

“The venue was more than happy to liaise with the catering companies to ensure our choices were possible while the caterers worked with us to create the perfect menus.”

What did the staff do to ensure your wedding went smoothly?

“Staff at Gilmerton couldn’t have done more.   From the warm welcome we all received on the Friday, to ensuring we always had a drink and anything else we needed, to the moment we left. It truly was a 5-star experience.  

“They made us feel at home and took the stress away from the day as we knew we were in very safe hands.

“The team was superb.   From day one they were always happy to answer any of our many questions and point us in the right direction.   They dealt with all of our suppliers over the weekend, making it stress free for us.   We couldn’t have asked for a more supportive and capable team at the venue. Everyone was fantastic.”  

To what extent were you able to personalise your big day?

“100%.  The wedding venue was very flexible and happy to accommodate anything you could want.

“The venue is a grand Georgian stately home which needs nothing additional.   We only supplied the personal touches, such as flowers, centre pieces, candles and stationery.”

How long did you stay at the venue?

“We stayed at Gilmerton House for the full weekend arriving on the Friday afternoon and leaving at Sunday lunch time.   We had our parents and bridal party stay with us for the full weekend.  

“The accommodation was outstanding.   There were 10 beautiful bedrooms each with their own bathroom and a separate cottage for an additional 6 guests to stay in.

“Gilmerton House really is a hidden gem.   The house and grounds are stunning and the staff are exceptional.   You can really make the day your own and you feel at home from the moment you arrive.   You get exclusive use of the venue. What more could you ask for?

“We struggle to pick a favourite feature as the whole venue is incredible.”

Any advice for other couples getting married at Gilmerton House?

“Relax and enjoy your day and fully trust the staff to take care of everything.   If you can, get the venue for the weekend.   We loved being there on the Friday and it made us feel at home immediately.   This took away any last minute nerves and helped us have a stress free weekend.”

24hrs at Trump Turnberry, a Luxury Collection Resort, Scotland

10 Oct 2018

We were recently invited to attend the inaugural ‘Say I Do’ event at the luxurious Trump Turnberry resort. This was a wedding invitation like no other, no-one getting married – we were excited to attend this intriguing event…

image

There was an option to have a chauffeur pick you up at your home address in a luxury car (quite impressive as we are based at the other side of Scotland!)

Sense of arrival…

Standing majestic on the edge of Ayrshire overlooking the Firth of Clyde, this mass of white and glass shined bright in the afternoon sun – you can only be impressed when winding through the manicured grounds up the drive.

image

At 2pm we arrived for a welcome lunch in The Ailsa Craig Suite hosted by General Manager, Ralph Porciani. The Ailsa Craig Suite offers a fresh and airy space for your more intimate wedding celebration. Large picture windows overlooking the Championship golf courses and beyond make this the perfect setting for a wedding breakfast of up to 80 people.

image

We checked into our sumptuous deluxe ocean view room. Standing in this spacious room of regal blue and gold, you are first drawn to the view of the championship golf course, lighthouse and of course - Ailsa Craig. We felt very special receiving our welcome gifts, with our chilled Trump sparkling wine being opened immediately!

image

Next stop – launching ourselves onto the huge luxurious bed – so inviting!

image

Can we just talk about our bathroom? Marble, gold, roll-top bath, separate glass cubicles for the loo and one for the spacious shower – in total – bigger than my apartment….

image

Once settled in, we changed into our wedding guest attire and was whisked down to The Lighthouse where we were greeted with a piper, Champagne and canapés. Time to meet our fellow guests and explore the honeymoon suite to the sounds of Capella String Quartet – the best way to enjoy this spectacular venue on the edge of Scotland!

image
image

Next - the main event.  We returned to the Hotel to be welcomed with yes – more Champagne and our first glimpse of the tremendous Donald J Trump Ballroom in all of its sparkling splendour.

image

The Donald J. Trump Ballroom has a capacity for 500 seated featuring eight, large, dazzling chandeliers, each with over 1000 sparkling Swarovski crystals, and the most luxurious interior design. Floor to ceiling windows offer incredible views – this is definitely one of our favourite Hotel Ballrooms in Scotland!

image

Our hosts for this evening were the lovely David Farrell and Jennifer Reoch, who looked after us all evening. Still unsure on how the evening would unfold, we were treated to a question and answer session with not one, but three talented individuals who have all upheld the position of Executive Head Chef at Turnberry - Ralph Porciani, General Manager, Justin Galea, Director of Culinary and Callum Dow, Executive Head Chef.

image

Dinner is served. A true taste of Scotland with a bespoke menu including Smoked & Cured Salmon to start, followed with Scotch Fillet of Beef.  

No Bride? No Groom? No Problem!

With a wedding cake from Sugar and Spice Troon, a slice of Strictly from the Scottish Amateur Ballroom and Latin American champions Tibor Poc and Hilary Mouat, Scottish and Gaelic singing and harp playing from the super talented Katie McKenzie ending with a fashion show from the fabulous Opus Couture – sister company to our member Opus Atelier – this was a wedding experience with a difference…..

image
image
image
image

Dressed to impress, ourselves and our friends from the wedding industry, press, PR and radio were treated to such a memorable evening in a magnificent venue. There’s only one way to end such a magical day…..fireworks! Our friends at 21CC were the evening finale with a fireworks spectacular!

image

Time for bed – not before a nightcap of four and a catch up with friends…

Day Two

Breakfast is served in 1906 restaurant - With an unrivalled coastal location, and views stretching for miles, the Trump Turnberry chefs take inspiration from the land and sea surrounding the resort to produce the dishes found on the 1906 menu. Normally a full Scottish is my kick start of choice, but I couldn’t resist the Burns Breakfast – cheese hash brown topped with haggis, egg and hollandaise sauce - times two!

image

Normally it’s check-out time and go – not today. Today we were encouraged to stay a while, relax, enjoy – and what better way than a relaxing spa treatment? Back, shoulder and neck massage – yes please! Upon arrival to the spa, you are immediately taken with the sheer size and luxurious reception area. We were guided through to dress down, rope up and prepare for our massage ahead. Sitting in the relaxation room – we felt a million miles from our usual week day regime… The massage was super relaxing - I just didn’t want it to end – but all good things must – or should they? No, it was not time to leave – we HAD to check out the impressive pool and jacuzzi with probably the best spa view in Scotland.

image
image

Tick, tock, our 24 hours are nearly up. Nearly…

Before our journey home to Edinburgh, we accepted an invitation to enjoy some afternoon tea within The Grand Tea Lounge & Bar – set within the heart of Trump Turnberry this elegant lounge dates back to 1906. With a remarkable selection of teas to choose from, we opted for nutty chocolate Assam to compliment our selection of sandwiches, assorted patisseries finishing with scones, clotted cream and strawberry preserve.

image

Alas, we leave.

My thoughts? Bought for £35m and benefiting from a further £200m refurbishment, this resort is immaculate in every sense. Sure, the décor, the gold, the never ending chandeliers are jaw dropping, but we really felt the sense of family among the local employees; their professionalism and more importantly, geniality, shone through in every aspect of our stay. Selecting a venue for your special day relies a lot on trust; trust in the venue delivering and trust in your wedding planner - you can trust Trump Turnberry.

The bar has been set high. Trump Turnberry may have just ‘trumped’ their competition.

It’s just a shame I am already married - can I do it again???

AMARONE MUSIC

9 Oct 2018

THE CEREMONY MUSIC YOU’E ALWAYS DREAMED OF!

We’ve had such a busy year so far at Amarone Music and were ecstatic to be able to play for so many stunning outdoor ceremonies – we had to wear our sunglasses and slather on the sun cream for most of our weddings during the best summer weather we’ve had in years!

Although we are similar to a string quartet, we have the unique line up of violin and flute with guitar and/or piano making us ultra-versatile.  Just about anything is possible for us, whether it’s playing outdoors or specially arranging your favourite song, or even collaborating with other musicians to create an unforgettable bridal entrance incorporating pipes, or with a pop up choir to create a version of ‘All You Need Is Love’ a la ‘Love Actually’.  If you have any wonderful musical ideas and you’re not sure if they’re possible then don’t hesitate to get in touch with us and we’ll see what we can do!

Of course, it’s not always about doing something adventurous; simple, elegant and romantic music is just as perfect for your wedding day.  As five times Wedding Awards Nominees we are the experts in guiding you through your wedding music, whether you are having a Humanist, civil or religious ceremony.  We can add to any theme you may have for your wedding with an appropriate mixture of Classical, Scottish, film and popular music, and for those having religious ceremonies we can play all your hymns and lead the singing if required.  We’ve even been known to help out by proof-reading orders of service and will go above and beyond to make sure every aspect of your ceremony is perfect.  

We are passionate about creating everlasting memories of your wedding day through your music – your guests will love the atmosphere created by live music and we can also play requests for them during the drinks reception.

As recommended suppliers for many of the venues listed with Luxury Scottish Weddings you can be guaranteed top class service and stunning music that will add the perfect atmosphere and finishing touch to your day.  

Please get in touch if you’d like any information about the bespoke service we can provide for your wedding ceremony and drinks reception music.

Intimate Weddings at Carphin House

14 Sep 2018

Weddings are always a special occasion, but sometimes it feels like you can blink and miss them! The day can be such a whirlwind, so at Carphin we like to do things a little differently. For intimate weddings of up to 20 people, you can enjoy 15 acres of private space, exclusively yours for as long as you want them.

image

The house can sleep 20 comfortably, with three reception rooms, an unbelievable kitchen, and plenty of space to relax and unwind. You and your nearest and dearest can all stay together for as long as you want, and not confine your wedding to just one day. 

image

For a sunny day, why not get married in the beautiful walled garden? Or for more atmospheric conditions, the Library or Drawing Room offer the perfect intimate setting. 

image

The owners Ruth and Ian (and baby Ava and pooch Hugo), are always happy to help, and can either organise everything for you, or just offer a hand where required!

Please feel free to get in touch, and see what Carphin has to offer.

Limelight Wedding Trees - creating magical décor settings for your wedding day!

11 Sep 2018

When planning your wedding, we know you’ll want a unique setting, unlike any other, with décor to delight your guests!

At Limelight Weddings we have pleasure in bringing you exclusive trees, table centrepieces, and exquisite designs you can only hire from us, with a full array of luxury options that no other décor can match.

Thousands of tiny LED lights in our trees, nestled amongst Cherry Blossom flowers and foliage, illuminate your venue with soft lighting and create unforgettable photo opportunities all day long and through the evening.

Our ‘Wedding Wishes’ Cherry Blossom tree with its hand-scribed chalkboard on a white wooden easel is perfect décor to invite your guests to leave their best wishes (and advice!) on butterfly tags they hang on the tree for you.  And our elegant tall Manzanita Trees add a magical feel to your guests’ tables with their winding stems full of garlands of flowers, hanging glass globes with flickering tea-lights and flower-filled wooden bases – just perfect!

We love working with our brides to create magical settings, and we work with all levels of budgets, creating small intimate ceremony décor for boutique weddings, to full-blown marquee décor where we manage everything you need for a glorious, outdoor event.

This years’ trend for sparkling rose gold décor mixed with bridal whites and rustic flower arches and flower displays is unstoppable, with a lot of our brides opting for a truly relaxed natural feel to their décor, and our trees fit in beautifully with this theme.  

Everything is possible when you choose us to help you with your wedding décor – we have years of experience providing beautiful décor to our brides on their wedding day, so whether you are looking for 3 metre tall wedding trees with thousands of LED lights, elegant manzanita tree centrepieces surrounded by dozens of creamy peonies, wedding lanterns flickering as you walk down the aisle, candy and popcorn tables bursting with delicious sweets, candies and popcorn treats, wedding archways overflowing with masses of foliage and flowers, or candelabras with roses scrambling up the stem, our team will provide fabulous décor for an unforgettable wedding day.  

But don’t just take our word for it – Jemma sent us this lovely email after her wedding:-

Lin, I simply cannot thank you enough for what you’ve done. I couldn’t believe how stunning everything looked, I’ve never seen anything like it and I don’t think I will again.
Your attention to detail and ability to understand exactly what I was looking for was exceptional. You listened to me and you captured every single little thing I threw into the mix!
I walked into the marquee after the ceremony and I was blown away. The only word is perfection. I couldn’t have been happier with the way our room looked.
I can’t tell you how many compliments we’ve had about the look of the room. The photographer, the bar staff and so many of my family and friends said it was the best decorated wedding they have ever seen.
In your email you asked if there was anything you could have done differently. Most definitely not. You got it absolutely spot on. Our wedding was perfect, and that is thanks to you, Robert and your team”

Have a look at our website at www.limelightweddings.co.uk for lots of inspiration and ideas, call us on 07450 919317 to talk through your wedding plans, or send us a message with your ideas and ask us for a quote at weddingsbylimelight@gmail.com  - we look forward to hearing from you and adding a little extra magic and sparkle to your wedding day!
