Today I am thrilled to share this pretty Glasgow Winter Wedding at the stunning House for an Art Lover.
The couple are Gillian and Craig McIntyre, and this morning I shared the story of their blossoming new Business Something Brewed, which was one of the star attractions on their Big Day.
Images were captured by Neil Jarvie Photography.

I hand over to Gillian to share the couples story…
How did you meet?
“We met at the dancing! We were both on a night out in Glasgow and a mutual friend introduced the two groups and the rest is history…”
When did you get engaged?
“We got engaged on Christmas Day 2014, in bed, before the presents!”
Tell us about your wedding planning journey
“It was really enjoyable! We both have very similar tastes so we pretty much agreed on most things that we had to decide on together.”
“We knew we wanted a winter wedding, the style of venue, a cake made from cheese, a ceilidh, the guestlist… and because it was in February we got pretty much all of our first choice suppliers as it’s much quieter then.”
“Once we had all the big things booked we then started to personalise everything and decided I wanted to make a lot of the features – the order of services, confetti cones, the wedding favours, little signs to go around the room etc.” (Thanks to the Best Man and Maid of Honour for helping finish these off!)
“The venue were so accommodating with our planning so when we asked them to change the drinks reception canepes for little custard tarts (Craigs gift to me on our first date!) they loved the idea.”
“We also saved money on some things by borrowing a friends instant camera and setting up our own little photo booth so we could splash out on little other things.”
“We had a very modest budget so very very pleased how much we achieved on the day!”
When did you get married?
“We got married on Friday, 26th February 2016.”
What was the best bit of your day?
Gill – “Aside from marrying a wonderful man, I loved to see all of our friends and family mingling together as if they’d known each other for years.”
“They chatted, laughed and danced like crazy together and everyone kept telling me what wonderful friends and family we have and its great that we made it happen at our wedding.”
“(Also, our wedding cake was made with rounds of cheese so that was a pretty incredible end to the buffet – we were eating cheese for weeks afterwards!)”
Craig – “Of course, aside from marrying Gill, the Ceilidh!”
“Our first dance was the Gay Gordons which was so much fun – it was great when everyone came up to join us on the dancefloor (which wasn’t big enough for every person) but everyone got involved.”
“Now we get to relive it every time we get to a Ceilidh!”
What advice would you give to other couples getting married?
“Enjoy the planning stage as much as you can.”
“It’s a great opportunity to find out more about each other, your likes and dislikes and work together.”
“Plus it makes the engagement period a time you can look back on fondly, rather than it being a stressful manic period.”
