FAQ

  • What should I wear?

You can wear whatever you like! We want our wedding to be a safe and welcoming celebration so wear whatever makes you feel comfortable and you can boogie in!

  • Will I need an umbrella, jacket, etc?

You might! We’re hoping that the ceremony will be in the Gardens, but as we all know Scottish weather can change in an instant, and usually not for the better. Best to come prepared!

  • Does the wedding have a theme?

We’re going for a coastal inspired theme! Centre displays, place settings, etc will all be loosely based around the sea and beach!

Please let us know as soon as possible, especially if you have already RSVP’d as attending 🙂

  • Where should I park?

There is ample parking in the hotel grounds so don’t worry!

We will be using hurricane vases provided by the hotel so please don’t pinch these! Every day guest will have a place setting beach pebble with their name and the date on it to take home as their wedding favour!

  • Can I take photos during the ceremony? Can I post to social media?

We have hired a wonderful photographer to capture all the best moments of our special day, and are asking that NO phones, cameras, ipads, etc be used during the ceremony. We also want to make the first posts to social media ourselves and would please ask that you refrain from posting ANYWHERE until after dinner. Thank you!
