Introducing Morgan & Ben – Carfraemill Win a Wedding Couple

Back in July I was excited to spotlight on Carfraemill, a beautiful rural Scottish wedding venue and share the exciting news of their Win a Wedding competition.

The competition was to win amazing Scottish wedding venue worth over £12,000 – with a fabulous marquee styled bang on the current luxury wedding trends.

With only 3 months to plan your day, the winning couple had to be brave, bold and so loved-up that they couldn’t wait any longer!

The lucky winners were Morgan and Ben, and here they share the excitement of the weeks that lie ahead and their plans so far…

“When we found out we were getting married we had just over 11 weeks until the date of the wedding!”

“We were so shocked to find out we had won, we cried and laughed and really couldn’t believe it was actually happening.”

“It took a few days before it even began to sink in.”

“After about a week we went into panic mode and I frantically made lists of everything we would need to get and how much it would all cost.”

“In just 3 weeks we ordered kilts and bought my dress and shoes, found a DJ, ordered the cake, got bridesmaids dresses, booked our Humanist, bought our rings and created our guest list!”

“It was a whirlwind but I’m so glad we did it all as we now feel quite relaxed about it all and we are so looking forward to the big day!”

“We are lucky to have so much help from those involved in the competition.”

“Lindsey at Get Knotted has amazing things planned for the marquee- some of which she is keeping a surprise from us, which is exciting!”

“We’ve been told there will be lots of candles and fairy lights which we love as well as a chill out area and barrels as bar tables.”

“It’s difficult to have someone else make the decisions for your wedding but we completely trust Lindsey, she clearly knows what she’s doing and I can only imagine how amazing it will all look when it comes together.”

“Susan at Carfraemill has been incredible as well, making sure we keep on track with everything.”

“We have just less than 8 weeks now until the wedding and we are focusing on the smaller details like music for each part of the day, organising hair and make-up and getting buses sorted for our guests travelling from Livingston.”

“When we first found out it seemed like it would be almost impossible to plan a full wedding in 11 weeks but now we are so looking forward to it and we just can’t wait for it to be here.”

“We hope the day doesn’t pass by too quickly though!”


Looking forward to hearing the continuing adventures of Morgan and Ben as their Wedding Day at Carfraemill nears, and can’t wait to share their gorgeous day on the Blog.
