Gem and Rob’s Colton House wedding was decorated with a mint green motif that made a lovely pairing against the blooming cherry blossoms around the venue grounds. In addition to the delicate mint shade, the couple honored their love of travel with maps and wanderlust-inspired details. The wedding took place on a chilly day in Scotland, and photographer tub of jelly captured the most romantic portraits of the newlyweds bundled up in a blanket and enjoying their first moments alone together before heading into their reception party.
Gem and Rob
Colton House, Scotland
We found many of our ideas from the natural features around beautiful Colton House. We have travelled all over the world together and therefore there was a large element of travel involved in the decor. There was also a huge inspiration from the 1st of May which is lover’s day in Prague where the lovers traditionally kiss under the cherry tree blossom – this reflected the place where we met. My favourite colour is mint green so there was a lot of mint green EVERYWHERE!
Walking down the aisle singing Ho Hey with everyone and seeing each other and knowing that you are surrounded by the most important people in the world who have come from far and wide to see your special moment. Almost every single person there had contributed to the wedding whether it was making decor, the cakes, lifting hay bails, sorting electrics, arranging flowers, painting signs or even marrying us! It felt like a day everybody had helped make and shape which made it incredibly personal.
The Couple Recommends:
All of the professionals were incredible. Arc Marquee and Stewart’s Drinks come highly recommended for people looking to plan their own wedding. They are incredibly experienced and knew exactly what we wanted from our first vision and their execution was impeccable. Without them this could have turned into a logistical nightmare. The flower creations were also beyond this world. Ros is an artist in her own right and made incredible flower creations from our cherry tree arch, to flowers in tins on logs and beautiful flower globe flower arrangements.
