Our Thoughts & Inspiration
Scottish Spring Forests
Your wedding day is to be filled with a sense of long standing loyalty, created by the intimacy of your guests and the country weekend feel of your wedding celebrations and also the homely, historic nature of your venue and most importantly the strong, symbolic longevity of a Tree. We would wish to add to these elements of your day as well as to contribute to the relaxed and truthful atmosphere surrounding you both. Weaving together humour, country houses and the flicker of spring, new growth and Scottish Highlands and wild forests. Everything is to look rustic and rambling, tied bundles of fresh fragrant rosemary, miniature secret Gardens contrasted by tall gnarling yet elegant and strong trees dripping with the jewels of Spring, berries, nuts and leaves. The overall look is to be one of honest, open Romance and natural beauty, ensuring that each and every flower or leaf is beautiful and as a far as possible intrinsically British.
