The latest #InOurVeils is from the delightful Lisa. Her gorgeous wedding took place in their local Church and the stunning Crossbasket Castle. The day was full of surprises, love and laughter.
When choosing her veil, Lisa fell in love with the lace on the San Diego, and was delighted when she found out this could be customised by Joyce Jackson to create her perfect blusher veil.
How they met:
Paul and I met in a local night club back in 2008. The night we met Paul was so enamoured (drunk) he actually proposed to me twice. Apparently after our first date, I was still living at home, I came into see my mum and told her I was in love and found the man I was going to marry!
For a Scottish girl with stereotypical emotions this unusual! Paul and I had quite a difficult time throughout our relationship, in that after Paul graduated there were no jobs in architecture at the time, so he ended up moving to Toronto, we did long distance for almost three years. If you can get through that you can get through anything!
How he popped the question:
I got told to book a holiday from work and pack a bag for weather similar to here. That was all! It turns out he had booked a trip to Belgium, and proposed in Bruges in the most romantic setting ever. It was such a surprise and I loved every moment of that weekend.
We got married on the 17th September in our local church and then onto Crossbasket castle, just outside Glasgow
No specific theme, I liked pastel colours and bright golds to tie in with the amazing venue.
Favourite part of the day:
I loved every second of it, from getting ready in the morning (which was so chilled out) to the church, but there are a few special moments that stick out- driving in an open top car down the large winding driveway into our venue with a glass of bubbles, whilst the piper lead us in.
The surprise of the singing waiters, we had 3 tenors come and do some songs and everyone loved it, it was great to see the whole venue up and singing napkins above their heads!
I always wanted a two tier veil (or blush as I have heard it referred to), the bit in the church when the dad removes the veil from the brides face was always my favourite. However, the veil I fell in love with (San Diego) was not two tier.
I was so delighted when I heard it could be customised by Joyce Jackson, so I got the lace trim to elbow height and the tier longer than most. I adored the square edge of the veil and the lace detail is absolutely stunning.
Advice for brides to be:
Don’t stress, stress isn’t good for skin or health and I kept telling myself “something will go wrong, as long as I am aware and prepared for that, what’s the worst that can happen?”
The ironic thing is everything was perfect from start to finish, but in reality if anything had gone wrong it would have likely only been me that would have realised!
No one goes to a wedding to judge, everyone is delighted to be there to celebrate your special day, so enjoy everything.
I even fell over during my first dance ( I am very clumsy!) but hardly anyone noticed, they thought I was pulling some funky moves!
Also, be organised! Take a print out of the order of the day and everyone’s telephone numbers, you won’t have your phone but I felt happy knowing I had all my information at the venue if needed.
