Today I am thrilled to share a stylish urban wedding at St Lukes Glasgow with beautiful blush pink detail.

I hand over to gorgeous Bride Amy to tell us the couples love story, and about their pretty Glasgow urban wedding…
How did you meet?
We met in 2010 in Tenerife of all places. Sandy was there with 11 of his best friends and I was there with my parents!
We stayed at the same hotel and you know what it’s like when you hear another Scottish accent around the pool… we all got chatting and realised we lived fairly close but we’re on opposing sides when it came to football so there was a lot of friendly “banter” between us all.
One day we went to Siam park as a big group and Sandy and I got stuck on the lazy river.
It took up about 2 hours to find a way off but we talked the whole way round about our lives, loves and what we valued and the rest is history!
Tell us about the Proposal…
Sandy proposed to me when we were in Mexico on holiday.
He had planned to do it on the balcony of our room however he didn’t manage to convince me to go out onto the balcony which ended up in a full scale argument about shoes before he grabbed me and got down on one knee in the hotel room and pulled the ring out of his bedside drawer.
Tell us about your wedding planning journey…
We had three years to plan our stylish urban wedding which was in hindsight was probably a little long!
We knew we wanted to get married in the summer but we’re fussed about a month or date.
We looked at lots of venues but they weren’t quite “us”. I had taken St Lukes off our list of possible venues as I ideally wanted a hotel but one day we nipped into the bar for a pint before a gig and the door was open into the main hall which had been set up for a reception.
The owner, Michael, must have saw my face light up and came over and asked if we wanted a nosey around the venue.
He showed us everything they had done to the place and then after the tour asked “Are you guys even engaged?” it felt so genuine and you could tell how much love had been put into renovations compared to some of the “sales pitches” we had received at hotels.
We got some dates from the venue but our final date was determined by the availability of our band, Ernest, who were INCREDIBLE and worth moving our original date for!
The rest more or less fell into place!
Any special touches/DIY?
We made a lot of “decor” for our urban wedding ourselves.
Our centre pieces were coffee jars with pillar candles in, we made our favours which were shots, made our own sweet table and I made our order of service using a second hand mirror and vinyl stickers.
I would say the most special touch would be that in the lead up to our wedding one of our favourite bands toured the UK and played at St Lukes.
Not many brides can say they got married on the same stage as lots of amazing bands!!
What was the theme /colour palette of your Big Day?
Our bridesmaids dresses were blush pink and our kilts were arran mist which were navy with brown touches.
We didn’t have a theme as such we just wanted good food and drinks and a really good party and that’s exactly what we got!
What was the best bit of your day?
The whole day was amazing and so much fun but I loved being at the top table and looking around thinking “wow, all these people love us”.
It was such a special feeling and white overwhelming considering we had 120 guests for our wedding breakfast!
What advice would you give to other couples getting married?
Try not to stress out about the little things and think about what you remember from being a guest at a wedding.
Everyone remembers what they ate, drank and what they danced to (or didn’t)!!
