Planner Lindsay Coleman is based in the Cairngorms and brings local knowledge, diverse professional experience and an interest in sustainability to the Scottish wedding planning scene
Got your sights set on tying the knot amid the rugged romance of the Highlands? We know just the person to help you do it. Lindsay Coleman of Wide Sky Weddings is a newly established independent wedding planner specialising in destination weddings in the Cairngorms National Park, Inverness and Moray. Having previously worked in media and marketing in London and as a venue co-ordinator, Lindsay’s got style, vision and serious organisational skills.
She offers a range of services: full planning assistance for couples starting out; three-month co-ordination for those who need a hand with the nitty-gritty in the run-up to the big day; and she can also source venues and suppliers for couples who want to keep more control but need help finding the best team and venue.
She’s also keen to work as sustainably as possible, as she explains: “Living in a national park, there is a strong principle amongst people to protect both the park itself and the wider environment. There is a ‘leave no trace’ philosophy here, and I will ensure that after a wedding day ends, there will be nothing left behind. I will be more than happy to suggest to my clients ways that they can be more sustainable with their wedding plans should they so wish, although if this isn’t their bag, that’s fine too.”
Lindsay clearly has big goals, but what’s her proudest achievement so far? “I would have to say it’s my first styled shoot that I did in September. I put together a team of fantastic local wedding professionals who dedicated their time and energy to help me create a stunning collection of wedding images. It is a great insight into what can be created for couples coming to the Cairngorms to get married in September.” We predict a flock of couples heading up the A9 pronto!
