LOUISE & GARETH
NOVEMBER 2019
Louise and Gareth are a Hoppy Couple who joined us for a #WESTWedding in November 2019. They first met back in 2014 when they were chosen to be Best Man and Bridesmaid at their friends' wedding, and were introduced ahead of the big day. Little did anyone know that by the time that wedding came around, Louise and Gareth would be in love and living together!

Their wedding was a beautiful Autumnal celebration in our Courtyard. In keeping with the beautiful colours of the trees and falling leaves on Glasgow Green, they had a rustic theme with warm colours, lots (and LOTS) of cinnamon candles and even a little bit of wizardry.

WHY THE WILD WEST?
"We chose WEST on the Green pretty quickly. After looking at possible venues who met our most important criteria, dog-friendly, we chose to visit as we'd previously enjoyed spending time here after dog walks on Glasgow Green. On going to visit we were lucky to be able to see the Courtyard all done up as another function had just finished. As soon as we saw it we both fell in love! Everyone was really friendly and helpful and we couldn't even make it back to the car before saying to each other we knew this is where we wanted to get married.

Since that day the team at WEST were fantastic to deal with. They did so much in the lead-up, it never felt like we were an inconvenience getting in contact and they always reassured us. On the day they were brilliant and we cannot speak highly enough. They looked after our guests and the way they were able to take our vision of the decor we had in our heads and make it a reality was excellent".
THE BIG DAY
"It seems almost impossible to pick one highlight! Overall the most amazing thing was seeing all the planning we had done come together. Walking into the Courtyard and seeing all our friends and family in the room which had been put together exactly as we hoped was very special. Plus we totally lucked out with the weather!

Our wedding was in November and just when the trees in the park were at their most colourful. As such, we knew it would be good to have lots of Autumn colours to go with a rustic theme and added to this with LOTS of cinnamon scented candles. The room even smelled like Autumn! That said, any day would not have been able to pass without Harry Potter being involved as Louise loves the books. We had lots of touches around the room however our favourite piece had to be the aisle made out of pages from the books".
WHAT DID YOU LEARN?
"Decide what's most important to you for your money. We knew from being guests that weddings are expensive and generally the things most people talk about are if the food was good, the entertainment was fun and what the price of the drinks were! WEST certainly took care of the food and drink, however we ended up spending more than what we'd budgeted on entertainment. That said, we knew we were getting a fantastic band and we haven't stopped getting great compliments since!

The best thing about being married so far is how happy we have been since. Gareth works offshore and has been away since just after our honeymoon so we are looking forward to him being home and enjoying married life soon. Of course the honeymoon was a highlight too. Being away in November was unusual for us but it was great to get a break".
THANKS TO
OLIVIA CAMERON BRIDAL - From start to finish the girls there were a pleasure to deal with. They were so helpful when initially looking for the dress, using their experience to help find the perfect one.

MACGREGOR & MACDUFF - The quality of the kilts were great, the price was good and they were so understanding and helpful, even storing Gareth's kilt as he was working off-shore.

PAMPER & POLISH - Lesley from Pamper & Polish was such a brilliant choice. The bridal party all felt so pleased with how their hair and make-up looked, all receiving great comments on the day. She was such good fun with us all in the morning, as well as being fantastic at her job

SIMONS STUDIOSimon's style of photography is stunning and it has all been a pleasure. Having a pre-wedding photoshoot was a huge help and made us much more comfortable on the day. Simon kept everyone right and we are stunned with how well the photos turned out.

MAPLE MEDIA PRODUCTIONS - Our video is still being processed and we can't wait to watch the day back! John was lovely to deal with and worked so well alongside our photographer, Simon.

GEORGE MEWES - We chose to have a wedding cake made of cheese and the day we visited George Mewes Cheeses was one of our favourite wedding planning days. George himself was very helpful as we picked our selection, keeping us right on quantities.

THANKS CONT...
WEDDING LIGHTING HIRE - We arranged a lot of the decorations for the day ourselves, however we did use Wedding Lighting Hire Scotland to add lighting to the room which completely set the atmosphere.

NARCISSUS FLOWERS- Louise and her mum met Susan from Narcissus Wedding Flowers at the WEST Wedding Fayre. We don't know too much about flowers and Susan kept us right and was spot on, from her beautiful bouquets to decorating our cake!

BERCOTT'S JEWELLERS - We also met Max from Bercott's jewellers at the WEST Wedding Fayre and they made us feel so special, even sending us a lovely wedding card. They were so knowledgeable and helped us find our perfect rings.

MARTIN TURNER - Martin was our celebrant and straight away we were captured by his fun personality. He prepared a beautiful script that was tailored to us in every aspect.

ERNEST Louise saw Ernest play at a wedding back in 2016 and their availability was almost as important to us as the venue! We feel this was absolutely the right decision, they had everyone on the floor!
