Lynsey Mackay & Gregor Hunter
7th July 2018
“We got engaged in front of Cinderella’s Castle at Disney World in Florida. I love Disney and Gregor knew it would make the proposal extra special for me. Of course we had to include some nods to this on the big day! We had a glass slipper, apple candles from Snow White and the bell jar from Beauty and the Beast.
We narrowed our search down by picking the date – July when the rugby season was off – and type of venue (barns in Fife). The minute we saw The Rhynd in Leuchars online we both felt we’d found our venue.
Including tartans from our family clans was important, we are both really proud of where we come from. We also used a lot of greenery from Gregor’s family’s garden in the Borders. Special mention has to go to the umbrella installation that Gregor’s brother Callum made. He hung three umbrellas from the rafters and had fairylights cascading down like rain. Our guests loved it for a photo!
I always knew I wanted turquoise bridesmaid dresses and eventually I found gowns I loved by Romantica, but unfortunately they didn’t come in the right shade. The team at Gwenne Wedding Services in Broxburn suggested I contact the brand to ask if they could dye the style I liked to the right colour and they agreed. I was delighted and ended up with beautiful turquoise dresses.”
Top tip: “Don’t rush any of your important choices. Make a list of things you need to book and prioritise the bigger things like venue and band first.”
