This Autumnal Cambo Estate Wedding Has the Most Epic Ceremony Exit

Ruth and Neil’s Cambo Estate wedding was nothing short of incredible and truly embraced laid-back elegance while showcasing the unparalleled beauty of autumn in Scotland. The couple held their ceremony inside the estate and opted for a woodland wonderland-inspired reception with a clear marquee tent nestled in the woods, which created a beautiful juxtaposition between events. Myrtle & Bracken brought Ruth’s love for florals to life with autumn-inspired arrangements and foliage that softened the look but didn’t overwhelm either space. As for their ceremony, we now have a new favorite exit idea: confetti cannons! Most people save their grand exit moment for the reception, but Ruth and Neil surprised everyone by having confetti shot off right after they exchange their vows. It was a moment we’re sure their guests will never forget and one we can’t wait to see over and over thanks to Zoë Alexandra Photography who captured every moment brilliantly!

I think the most memorable part of the day was our ceremony. It was probably the one part of the day that I felt truly present and there was a real element of calm and joyful anticipation in the room for what the day held and represented. We wanted to make it as personal as possible so it felt like “us.” Our wonderful friend, Lucy, married us and she was just fantastic. We had two of our very talented friends sing and play guitar as everyone took their seats as well as leading us for a sing-a-long at the beginning of the ceremony! One of Neil‘s groomsmen’s told the story of how we met which drew some laughs and tears, and we also had two readings from other friends which were meaningful song lyrics, and a surprise personalized love story which had everyone laughing.



Our wedding vibe kind of chose us really. Most things centered around the season we were getting married in (Autumn) as well as things we just love. We wanted the day to really reflect us, whether that was in the sharing platters of food that made it feel more like a dinner party with friends, or the fact I love all flowers and basically wanted the place adorned in foliage and candles!



We also wanted the overall look and feel to reflect the beautiful Scottish surroundings, season and venue that we’d chosen. Autumn is stunning in Scotland and as we were going for a kind of woodland wedding vibe, it made sense for everything to fit around that. We decided on having a marquee nestled away in the woodland of Cambo for our reception and into the wee small hours of the night. It had clear sides so we could appreciate the outside woodland as much as possible. A marquee also gave us the opportunity to style it exactly how we wanted. Rustic trestle tables filled with candles, foliage and glassware with hints of brass and gold were simple but effective in creating the rustic but chic vibe. We wanted it to feel warm and homely, so used lighting like festoons and fairy lights and a tonne of candles to help create it.
