Real Life Weddings - Cait & Ben

One of our TLWB suppliers recently assisted the beautiful Cait and her new husband Ben to create their perfect day, so I'll hand you over to Jill at Taylor Made Events to tell you all about it...

Wedding Date: 30 December 
Ceremony: Arbuthnott, Bervie and Kinneff Church.  Beautiful church, picturesque scenery - stunning!
Reception: The Grassic Gibbon Centre, Arbuthnott 
TLWB Suppliers:
  • Planned and coordinated by me (Jill, Taylor Made Events)
  • Make Up and Hair by Gosia Weiss
  • Cake by Cake That and Party
  • Alba Bagpipes did the piping 

I had the absolute pleasure of helping Cait & Ben organise their destination winter wedding in Scotland.  The couple had a bespoke package created for them to ensure I could support them as much as possible with Cait living in America and Ben in London.

Cait contacted me in September so we only had a few months to organise everything, and thanks to the amazing suppliers we worked with, they made this happen!  

Hair & Make Up - Gosia Weiss Make-Up Artist.  The very creative, talented and fun Gosia.  The bridal party did not have trials due to them arriving a few days before the wedding however Gosia prepared in advance by asking for pictures to be sent through.  The hair and make up lasted all day, even with the windy weather.

Piper - Alba Bagpipes - professional pipers for hire.  I liaised with Rikki on the lead up to the day and Barry piped on the day welcoming guests with the traditional bagpipes and then used the small pipes in the church for walking down the aisle and signing the marriage certificate.  It was great to have the pipes feature as much as possible, given the Bride's family are not from Scotland.

Cake - Cake That and Party.  The very talented Emma provided a 'naked' red velvet cake with buttercream and fresh fruit.  Light and delightful.
