Ashley and Craig were married on 4th April at The Old Fruitmarket in Glasgow City Centre. They were planning their wedding for 18 months. Thank you so much to the ever lovely Chantal Lachance Gibson for sharing her images of the day… you can catch Chantal on her website, Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest!
“We were looking for something a bit different and quirky, not anything too traditional and something that had plenty of space to dance to the band Bahookie, who we had our heart set on after seeing them at our friends wedding, and plenty of space for our huge families!”
“Tasting cake was pretty good fun! But my favourite part was spending time with my groom, bridesmaids and family going over little details and building our excitement for the big day!”
“Craig was very involved in the planning process. No decision was made without running it by him first!”
“It wasn’t the easiest process, I did get it from the first shop I thought of going to but had liked the top section of one dress and bottom section of another so when they said they could make me one the way I wanted I was delighted! I didn’t get to see the finished product until five weeks before the big day though, thankfully it was just as I imagined! It was a very simple design, satin fishtail gown with sweetheart neckline, decorated with a silver embellished belt and row of tiny pearls around neckline.”
“We had a Humanist service, conducted by Kirsty Geddes of Independent Humanist Ceremonies."
“I did enjoy the food on the day after months of being careful for the last dress fitting! My favourite part of the day was just after the first dance when I looked around the room and saw everyone we loved there celebrating with us and everyone was so happy and having a great time, that was all we could ask for!”
“A family friend Lorna who founded Pufs Pastries made our tablet favours for the ladies.”
“When I woke up on the day I felt really calm and hadn’t thought I would feel so calm, I knew I was going to have the best day and just had to take in as much as I could!”
Ashley has logical advice for future brides... “Make lists and work through them! Also, trust people and give them jobs to do for you, makes it so much less stressful for you!”
