Scotland is increasingly becoming a location for dream weddings. And what’s not to love about a good Scottish Wedding?!
The home of Outlander and Braveheart,
Whether you’re looking for a lochside wedding, a white sandy beach and your never far from a historic castles, Scotland is the land of fairytale weddings.
Wherever you get married in Scotland, you are guaranteed a scenic backdrop.
Brides and grooms have been eloping to Scotland’s Gretna Green since 1754
Scotland also has its own historical wedding traditions. Have you heard of drinking from the Quaich?
The Quaich, a two handled loving cup, is an ancient Scottish tradition that represents sealing the bond of two people, and marks the blending of two families. It symbolizes the love and trust implied by the bond, as the couple shares the first drink of their marriage together.
The there is the traditional ‘ Handfasting’ during the ceremony.
Hand-fasting is our ancient Celtic/Medieval custom, in which two people came together at the start of their marriage relationship to declare of their own free will that they intended to marry. You remember William Wallace and Murron in Braveheart? Their hands were bound together in tartan
“I will love you my whole life – you and no other”
“And I you – you and no other – forever”Braveheart
Or how about, ‘skipping the broom?‘
However unique your Scottish wedding will be, you can make it even more unique by commissioning a live wedding painter to capture your favourite moment on canvas.
Having a live wedding artist at your wedding also holds its roots in tradition. Before the rise of wedding photography, it was practice to commission an artist to record your day on canvas.
Today, a wedding painting can provide something extra.
A live wedding painter will attend your wedding and paint live in real time whilst your guests watch the painting unfold.
You will be left with a memory to keep forever to remember the atmosphere of that moment in the day.
