Our vision was to create a day that combined the Scandi aesthetic that I love – very minimal and graphic – with my Scottish roots. Our palette was very clean – light pinks and greys with hints of lemon yellow – to refect that.For contrast, my dress was created using delicate Spanish lace and silk tulle. I also borrowed a simple silver bracelet from my maid of honour. We had a children’s corner complete with a monkey piñata and craf table, and created a special pop-up ‘sweet shop’, with oversized glass pick’n’mix jars. Personalised glass Coke bottles also went down very well with our younger guests.

The bridesmaid dresses were a steal. All three of my ’maids wanted mid-length gowns, which were surprisingly tricky to source. We eventually found them at Warehouse for just £75 each. Everyone pitched in on the day. My mum and ’maids stufed huge, clear balloons with confetti and flled them with helium to foat above each table.Russell and I bonded over our shared love of dachshunds! Our own sausage dog, Bruce, looked amazing in his bow tie.
