How did you meet?
That’s not really a very exciting story, we met on Tinder!
Tell us about the Proposal…
2020 had been a bit of a right off for us because of lockdown.
Ruairidh works at sea, and he got stuck onboard for 5 months. and the first time he got leave he got home for 7 weeks and then had to go back again for 5 months, so it was a long year spent mostly apart.
When he got home the second time it was just a few days before Christmas..
Again, being in lockdown still, he had to come up with a creative way of proposing that wasn’t just in the house.
When I got home from work that day, he wanted to go immediately to ‘Murdock Country Park’ (a place a spent most weekends at growing up) with the dog, to see two planets align in the night sky (something that only happens once in however many years)
It was already quite dark at this time so we quickly went and when we got there it was pitch dark and we were the only ones in the park.
I had suspected the proposal was coming because he was acting nervous.
Eventually half way round our walk, when we got to a clearing we could see the stars and he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him.
Tell us about your wedding planning journey…
As Ruairidh works away at sea, the date came down to his work rotation and I knew I didn’t want a long engagement, but we didn’t want the risk of having to postpone as of COVID, so we quickly settled on March of 2022.
I did most of the planning myself as he was away most of the time, but I had a big help from my mum.
Covid impacted us more when we first started ‘looking’ at venues. Everything was still closed and we couldn’t actually go and view any without waiting a couple months, which I was worried we wouldn’t get the date we had agreed on. So we did it all by email and brochures.
We knew we wanted to get married around Loch Lomond, Scotland and Cameron House Hotel was being refurbished so we knew it’d be nice and new and the surroundings are so beautiful we decided on that venue.
Cameron House also was closed for refurbishment though so we actually didn’t get to view until 6 months before our day.
I managed to book up all our suppliers quite quickly once we had chosen the venue and date so everything was done quite early on, so it was all pretty organised.
Any special touches for your Loch Lomond Wedding?
We tried to stay away from doing DIY as I knew I would get too stressed. However, I did make all of our favours, which were my empire biscuits.
What was the theme / colour palette of your Big Day?
For flowers, I just wanted white and greenery and the girls dresses were blue, which both mums also wore.
What was the best bit of your day?
It’s so hard to pick. For me, I think when the doors opened to the aisle and I walked down to Ruairidh.
Is there anything you would do differently?
No, and I know a lot of people say they do have some wedding regrets, but everything honestly was perfect.
What advice would you give to other couples getting married?
Enjoy the process of planning, although it can be stressful, its all worth it. Don’t sweat about the little things.
Lastly, make sure you take time with your husband on the day every few hours to just stop and take it all in.
