LOVE is all you need

There are a few things to relive the naturally stressful task of planning your dream day, and with these few key elements in check, the rest can surely fall into place. First, your photographer is key. Not just for their expertise and their ability to capture the magical day and make it last a lifetime. What few don’t realise, photographers are wedding experts. With a good photographer, you bag yourself a wedding planner and photographer all in one. You can consult your photographer on venues, dress colours, floral arrangements and cars, after all, they know what works best together. Don’t think photography is easily done by an amateur, it’s your special day after all, get a professional.


One of the top tips is choosing your wedding colour scheme from the word go. Less of the opinions of others, pick a colour you love and adapt everything to it. No one has to stick to one colour, pick a colour and work around shades, tints and hints of it incorporated into your wedding. Every colour scheme needs a balance, and never, ever forget to completely immerse your wedding in white. You can never go wrong with too much white on the day. Don’t – match absolutely everything to colour, it’s been done too many times, stick to strong and pastels, the mix will always work at a wedding in Inverness.

When you’re in LOVE

Your meal is next, despite the vows being the upmost important thing of the day, the meal and the reception is what your guests remember. Most wedding receptions have traditional events that must take place, the entrance, first dance, parent dance, toasts, cake cutting, bouquet and garter toss and exit. Do not add too many other events that will interrupt dance time. Make some music selections and give that information to your band or DJ, but don’t try and program the entire event. A professional entertainer will be able to read the crowd and adjust the music to keep people dancing. If you tie their hands with too many song requests, the energy of the evening may suffer.


Of course, nothing quite makes a wedding like the venue. Your venue should be one of the very first decisions you make. Once made, it all becomes real, you’re actually getting married, Yay! Your venue should be perfect, everything a bride dreams of. And with a wedding in Inverness, there is no better venue than Achnagairn Castle.
