At the Marquee reception, lush blooms and greenery graced the tables, while the overhead installation added an ultra-romantic and whimsical touch to the space.

Why A Carlowrie Castle Wedding
We always knew we wanted to get married in Scotland. We saw a few places and quickly realized that we wanted a venue that was exclusive to us. Carlowrie Castle is in its own league. It is traditional with a modern twist and reflects our tastes and personalities. Carlowrie is unlike anywhere else in Scotland, and it ticked all of our boxes.
Working With Their Vendor Team To Create A Classic Wedding Day Aesthetic
After searching through Pinterest for ideas and inspiration, we realized we kept gravitating toward a classic and elegant style. Working closely with Jordana Events, we were able to create a wedding day that was unique to us, ensuring that it reflected us as individuals and that our guests had the best possible experience. We feel incredibly fortunate to have such a fantastic vendor team who helped to make our special day a success. Everything went smoothly, and we extend our thanks and gratitude to everyone who played a part in creating our unforgettable wedding day.
Crafting A Ceremony That Focused On Their Love Story
We decided to go with a Humanist ceremony so we could be totally involved in the whole ceremony, which would be unique to our story. We met with a few humanists but connected with Neil Lynch best. We met with him a few times before the wedding to ensure he knew both of us well.
Personalized Notes: A Heartfelt Gesture For Their Guests
While we didn’t offer traditional wedding favors, we did take the time to write each guest a personalized message about what they meant to us as a couple. Our guests found a note explicitly tailored to them at every place setting, describing the special place they hold in our hearts. While this may seem like a simple gesture, ensuring that each of the 137 notes was flawlessly written and punctuated took a great deal of time and effort. At one point, we even questioned why we had taken on such a daunting task. However, seeing our guests read and react to the notes made it all worth it. Some guests have even gone so far as to frame their notes as a cherished keepsake of our wedding day.
