- Pinterest, Instagram, Facebook or Twitter?
Facebook. I can post photos and jibber jabber about my day, in more than 140 characters!
- Glasgow or Edinburgh?
Glasgow to live, Edinburgh for a night away and a trip to Anthropologie.
- Biggest achievement?
Meeting and keeping my other half and buying and making our home.
- Scottish Wedding Venue?
Sloan’s, I just adore it. It’s a real hidden gem bang smack in the City Centre.
- Wedding traditions or anything goes?
A bit of both. I like a bit of wild and wacky but underneath it all every wedding has the same fundamentals.
- Five dream dinner party guests?
Imogen Heap, her music is so beautiful and timeless and she is mesmerising on stage.
Zooey Deschanel, she’s a multi-talented gorgeous lady with tremendous fashion sense.
Ruth Jones, she co-wrote my favourite TV show ever, ever, ever.
Christine Taylor, the creative genius co-founder of Choccywoccydoodah.
Vera Wang, as they say in Bride Wars “Do you think there is something better than Vera Wang? I'm sorry, do they keep that next to the something that is better than chocolate?”
Now, there’s a table of power-women!
- What would you cook them?
I'm a fan of one pot cooking, or I do a killer platter of chilli cheesy nachos.
- Last book you read?
I can’t remember, but I read Look magazine faithfully every week.
- Favourite film?
It’s a toss up between The Holiday and My Big Fat Greek Wedding.
- Guilty pleasure?
My Big Fat Greek Wedding.
- Favourite first dance song?
The Wannadies - You & Me Song.
- Old, new, borrowed or blue?
I’d combine old and borrowed and use something that belonged to my gran. That would be most important for me.
- Wedding dress or wedding shoes?
Wedding dress. I have a habit of ruining shoes so a posh pair of heels would be wasted on me.
- Aspiring to be?
A superstar wedding supplier and girl boss, obviously.
- Ceremony or reception?
Ceremony. Without the ceremony it’s just a party.
- One piece of wedding planning advice?
As much as I love attention to detail, don’t get hung up on it. Remember that your wedding is about getting married and having the people that mean the most experience it with you. No one will care what grape and vintage they’re drinking as long as there’s wine on the tables.
- One piece of wedding day advice?
Remember to breathe. Breathing is good.
