Kirknewton Stables

Our love for wedding blogs runs deep! Truly!! They are such an amazing source of... dare we say the over used word of "inspiration"! Not only that but often a great support system to brides and grooms who are going all out on details. Seeing "real life" weddings - where couples have chosen a stand out designs, colours and styles and really worked them gives couples confidence in their suppliers, their ideas and most of all their DIY projects! It’s also possibly the best way to find new unique suppliers - be it a florist, caterer, stationer anything or anyone seeing their talents shine through on someone else’s wedding day must be the best recommendation.

Last year we blogged about a super cool informal wedding at Kirknewton Stables and we had such a huge response to it and all the little details Claire and Dan worked hard on so when we noticed it had been featured by Rock My Wedding we were so overjoyed!

Talking about finding suppliers through blogs - We have followed Lillian and Leonard Wedding Photography, Claire and Dan´s photographer for quite some time now, through twitter and their blog. The first wedding we noticed of theirs was this one at Crear - it just felt so different to what we had seen before; relaxed, informal, fun, detailed - just perfect imagery that we loved. As you can imagine to find out they were photographing one of our weddings after 2 years of following their work we were pretty ecstatic about the whole day - not only were Cara and Nye going to be there but Claire and Dan´s wedding was to die for!

So if you haven’t spied it yet - take a hop over to Rock My Wedding Part 1 and 2 and read all about the details of this wonderfully detailed day!

Blackhall St. Columba's followed by Mansfield Traquair

Way, way back last May (yep we are still totally behind in blogging!) we joined Susie and Adams' awesome group of suppliers and helped them bring together there elegant wedding day. When Jack Photography sent through a disk of images and we realised who´s wedding photographs we were looking at we jumped up and down like excited school girls looking at the latest Justin Bieber music video! Susie and Adam were so much fun to work with and they completely understood design and colour! The overall look was beyond words - stunning! If you notice anything in the venue images - notice the lighting. The team at Tower are complete perfectionists - they bring venues alive with their lighting, especially such big venues like Mansfield Traquair.

Susie decided to keep all the flowers white except from the bridesmaids bouquets which had a pop of magenta which match their shoes - we used black satin for any little ribbon details which carried on to the guest table napkin which had a little black satin belly band.


The flower girls held pomanders of white peonies - they are such a fun alternative to mini bridesmaids bouquets.

We kept things plain and simple in Blackhall St. Columba's with two glass urns filled with white hydrangea and white willow (this willow was 7 ft tall!)

Susie loved the elegance of all white and to keep the pure white we used no greenery through the table flowers and to help add height, we added white willow through. This was a May wedding and there was a danger of it looking a little wintry with the white willow but with the gorgeous hot pink lighting it changed the look to a fresh, clean summery vibe.


We added detail to the vase by sinking rose heads in to the base of the vase.

Seriously... how drop dead gorgeous is Susie and her sister Gillian?! We were lucky enough to also help with Gillian’s wedding later in the year (fingers crossed we will get to blog that before her first anniversary!)


Little details are our favourite - regulars of the Planet blog know this! Our favourite little detail of Susie and Adams wedding was there quirky signage for their dessert buffet provided by Knotty Stationery - pop over to Susan’s blog to see the process of her Dessert Table installation.

The Ebury Collection Blog

If you like vivid colours and striking contemporary floral design then you will adore Caroline and Stuart´s wedding that was featured on The Ebury Collection´s daily blog at the beginning of the week. The three part feature not only gave you a real feel of the whole day from the morning prep to the evening dancing but the stunning bride Caroline gives full insight into the day and all her planning hints and tips! Blue Sky Photography captured the style and feel of the couple perfectly (of course, we expect nothing less!) and Hannah at Ebury has showcased this wedding perfectly! The most exciting part of this three part blog feature is the addition of one of Steve at Cherry Tree Films wedding trailers! Everytime a Cherry Tree Film trailer is posted of a wedding we have been involved in, the team down tools and huddle around the office computer with a coffee in hand and sit mesmerised at what they are watching - very sure Steve will cringe when we say this but his work is nothing short of magical! So please please pop over to the Ebury Collection blog Part One, Two and Three!! It is a truly memorable beautiful day that is not to be missed by any soon to be Mr and Mrs!
