Glasgow Wedding Film from CineMate Films

If you’re not looking to fall in love this morning, I suggest you close your eyes, because as soon as you see this wedding film from CineMate Films, you’re not only going to fall in love with an adorable, head over heels for each other couple, but their wedding too. It’s going to be a total love fest this morning, and I can’t wait!

From CineMate Films … The sun lit up the waters of the clyde and lit up the hearts of familiar family and friends in Glasgow on the 28th July 2012, there to witness the wedding of Shona & David.

Familiar to the couple for the obvious reasons but also familiar to us as wedding filmmakers. This was in fact our second Gorrie wedding and when Shona & David came to CineMate to book their date, we couldn’t be happier!

A wedding with a unique venue is something special however a wedding with two is incredible and this celebration was exactly that. From the grand sites of Glasgow’s University Chapel for the marriage ceremony to the ever so unique Tall Ship which rests its’ sails on the banks of the Clyde for the cerebrations.

As the guests arrived for the reception, they were treated to fine music, drinks and another fabulous venue. The Tall Ship really was a stunningly unusual venue which perfectly complimented the juxtaposition between the beautiful, personal decor which filled the dinning hall and the upper desks to the industrial, mechanical inner works of the now dormant ship. It was great to see the guests enjoying this combination as they roamed the empty desks of the ship.

David & Shona, it was an absolute pleasure being welcomed back into your family. Your day was absolutely beautiful, impeccably planned and you both deserved such an amazing day! Gregg and I wish you both the best in married life together.

From the Bride… We chose Friars Carse as we just wanted a big old country house that we could take over with our close family and friends for the weekend. We were able to all have dinner together on the Friday night with singing and speeches, the wedding day on the Saturday and brunch all together out on the lawn on the Sunday. The hotel has lovely grounds and is very relaxed and informal. Friars Carse was close to our church, Maxwelton Chapel, which we chose because it is so beautiful. We loved its small size as it was important to us that people could see, hear and feel everything with us.

We wanted a relaxed, happy day full of people we love. We were inspired by our fondness of the countryside around us, the village I grew up in, the beautiful wildflowers of May and by our enjoyment of recycling/upcycling and crafting! We were keen to make many of the items for the day ourselves and to use the skills of our very talented families to help us with this! We had everyone collecting jars for the year running up to the wedding, which we used for flowers. We made our invites, menus, table plan and all other stationery using recycled card and string to keep it all natural feeling. For the children, we made up little packs of coloring books, fairy wings and stickers. My Mum (and a few helpers) made meters and meters of bunting, which we strung up in the marquee. My sisters and brother made an amazing photo booth for us, which doubled as a guest book. My Mum enjoyed making some lovely wildflower displays for in the church and inside the hotel. My dad repaired some old crates, stamped our names and wedding date on them and filled them with flowers. He also surprised us by having our family tree put on a poster and displayed in the hotel. We were also surprised by being given a saw instead of a knife to cut the cake — it had been made by our family because Callum is a carpenter! Everyone pitched in as a team the day before to pull it all together.

Scottish Wedding from Jo Bartholomew

We’re no strangers to crafty brides around these parts, but this creative bride take the cake for sure! Not only did she plan her entire wedding from another country, she made most of the details herself. Oh, and that amazing dress she’s wearing actually belonged to her mother. LOVE!  Jo Bartholomew captured all the love and smiles from this vintage chic DIY fete brilliantly and you can see even more right here.

From Jo BartholomewNora and Ed live in Sydney but are from the UK originally, so they decided to have two weddings! A small ceremony in Sydney for their closest friends, then a much larger wedding in Scotland to be celebrated with their old chums and, of course, their families. They decided to get married in a quaint little village called Peebles in the heart of the Scottish highlands (around two hours from Edinburgh). Nora is a very creative and talented girl who created a beautiful, vintage-themed wedding, making most of the details herself. Her amazing dress once belonged to her mother. She had it altered by “The emergency button” in Double Bay, Sydney, and they did an incredible job. The bridesmaids sourced their own vintage-styled, softly-colored dresses. The groomsmen wore vintage tweed waistcoats and neck ties that were sourced from various op shops  around Sydney and Surrey Hills in particular.

Nora got ready at an old house in the village where she was staying for the duration of the wedding. They were married the gorgeous local church of Peebles and then went to their reception venue, The Peebles Hydro, for photos and to eat, drink and be merry! Nora wore yellow gumboots to have her photos taken as the weather had been very very wet and unpredictable in the days leading up to the wedding. The reception room was filled with old vases of white and green flowers to give it a fresh, simple, country feel. The guest favors of custom notebooks and ring-shaped crayons were sourced from Etsy. They also had a cake buffet table filled with delights such as macaroons, cupcakes and sweets, all sourced from the local suppliers in the village. The cake stands were all vintage sourced from various op shops. They also created a photo booth table, which had a Polaroid camera on it along with mustaches, glasses and lips on sticks which Nora made herself. Nora also made all of the signs on the tables. Nora and Ed’s cake was made from cheese and fruits — they bought everything locally the day prior to the wedding and constructed it themselves.
