Pinterest Inspired Scottish Wedding With Fashion Designer Bride: Alexis & Joel

I am madly in love with today’s real wedding! For a start the bride was a total pinterest addict during the planning and she’s a fashion designer too, so you know this wedding’s going to be full of all that stylishly good stuff. I’m loving the contrasting, punchy colour scheme of deep purples and yellows and the picturesque setting of beautiful Scotland.

What mesmerizes me the most though, is the passion and love that emanates from our gorgeous newlyweds Alexis and Joel. Wooo. Scorchio. Fine art wedding photographer, Meghan Lorna captures their love and wedding day in all it’s wild beauty.

From the moment we decided to get engaged my Husband asked me to marry him everyday up until we were married. Somewhere in the middle of that he proposed to me for real with the ring, although we had already started to plan the wedding, he still asks my weekly to be his wife.

My whole dress was created around my vintage sourced veil that I bought first in Stockholm, Sweden at Beyond Retro [where I met my husband who is Swedish]. I designed my wedding dress as I am a fashion designer, but had a friend of a friend make it for me, her name is Lisa Rose. My wedding shoes were from Kurt Geiger.

I made all the bouquet of flowers myself and all the arrangements for the ceremony and reception. I used a wholesalers in Edinburgh to purchase the flowers after making my selections.

I chose sunflowers and Thistles for the bridesmaids to go with the original colour scheme, sunflowers because I love them and Thistles to keep in line with the Scottish theme and I liked the unique mix. I chose a mixed bouquet of flowers for myself made out of a colour pallet of white and deep purple.

I always knew I would design my own wedding dress, I feel as a fashion designer your dress is even more important as people know its your trade! I wanted something timeless and classical and everything to be about the train and veil. There was nothing that I could find on the market that even came close to what I was looking for without  a lot of modifications.

We got married in Scotland in Perth at the Crombly Croft center. This is because my family is Scottish and I always wanted to get married outside. While we are religious, I did not have a desire to be married in our local Chapel.

All the groomsmen and Joel wore traditional Scottish clothing for the wedding – we hired from Kenny’s kilt hire a self employed kilt hire company recommended to us through a friend.

For the flower girls I chose large white daisies that I made into little handheld balls for them to carry. They looked so sweet!

Our wedding photographer was Meghan Lorna. No one could have captured our day better. We have lasting memories that are more memorable than the day itself. The day went by so fast and you’re unable to take everything in, but with our amazing photographs that captured everything and more we have lasting memories that look like I was on a Vogue Bridal shoot, no one could have asked for more.

To decorate the venue we used fairy lights and white and purple lanterns in the middle of the ceiling. Tables had fresh flower arrangements that felt as though they had been picked from the hillside where the wedding took place.

We had a vintage typewriter table where the guest could type a letter to us that we would then make into a guest book and we also had a mustache photo booth station that the photographer set up and ran.

Wedding favours were origami brides dresses and grooms suits as the place settings and swans on the cake table that the guest could take home.

Our wedding cake was a three tier chocolate cake made by a family friend. The added sugar flowers were made by my best friend Donna Lindop and and the cake was decorated and put together by Jaqui Lawrence a family friend who used to babysit me and to whom I was very close to as a child.

If you could impart any words of wisdom to a Bride to Be planning her wedding day, what would they be?

Don’t answer the phone to your relatives and go with your gut feelings, don’t let anyone make you second guess yourself. It’s your big day and make everything personal and matter to you and your husband to be, no one else matters.

What was your most memorable moment of the day?

Between the ceremony and the reception when we were doing photographs was amazing, because we were close together, with the opportunity to talk and relax without many people except some of our closest friends around us at the time. We had so much fun doing it I think we got lost in the moment and went way over time, but it was worth it.
