Roddy Angus & Bronwen Evans
19th July 2018
“We decided that we wanted to get married 10 years to the date that we met in Tighnabruaich. We chose to have our ceremony at the end of the pier and hold a small reception for about 60 people in the pier building.
We both love the sea, and met at a sailing regatta in Tighnabruaich, so we had to have a nautical theme running through our day – we didn’t want just a regular wedding. Everything was very personal to us: Roddy’s daughter made the cake, we made 80 metres of bunting and named our tables after lighthouses we sail past often.
The weather was a definite highlight. Planning an outdoor wedding on the west coast of Scotland was always going to be tricky, but the sun shone and there was even a little breeze to keep the midgies at bay.
Our food was absolutely incredible. Botanica Restaurant did our catering and could not do enough for us. There was a gorgeous Loch Fyne seafood buffet, homemade bread, locally farmed lamb and regional cheeses. We also toasted with Roddy’s company’s whisky.
We made our favours and ceremony quaich at Sea Drift Pottery. The personalised shot cups had our initials and wedding date and were a huge hit with guests.
Top tip: Don’t get caught up in organising your guests’ logistics. Everyone just wants to be there to celebrate your day – you don’t need to worry about accommodation and transport, they will be happy to sort that themselves.”
