Paul got down on one knee with Christina’s great granny’s engagement ring in front of the Fountains of Montjuic to propose, and only a little over a year later, the two tied the knot. We thought it couldn’t get any more romantic than that sweet proposal, but Christina and Paul’s wedding is the kind of dreamy affair we wish we could have seen in person. Traditional Scottish elements blend perfectly with classic, formal details to create an event we won’t soon forget. A huge thank you to BWedding Invitations for sharing this beauty with us, and to Carley Buick for capturing it all!
Shades of pink, pops of deep purple, and tons of lush greenery add to the romantic feel of the day. The bride says they thought the interior of their venue was so beautiful that it wasn’t necessary to have a bold style – and we couldn’t agree more. The space inside St Andrews in the Square in Glasgow is one of the most beautiful venues we’ve ever had the pleasure of laying eyes on, making it perfect for both the wedding ceremony and reception.
The morning of the wedding, Christina surprised her bridesmaids with customized bridesmaid gifts in gorgeous blue and gold hat boxes. Silhouette cards on top are addressed to each of her closest friends. Inside, she included fun hair ties, Godiva chocolates, mini champagne bottles, and a few other items.
Christina looks flawlessly breathtaking in a mermaid wedding dress from Atelier Pronovias. The illusion neckline features lace appliqués and is separated from the gorgeous skirt by a narrow belt. The bridesmaids wore floor-length rose chiffon A-line dresses with a cross-front neckline, and groom and groomsmen donned plaid kilts and sporrans to tie in the traditional Scottish feel.
Guests got to enjoy an assortment of beautiful candies from the dessert table boasting a custom heart display stand filled with Ferrero Rocher chocolates.
