REAL WEDDING

READ THE ROMANCE

It’s like something off an old-school Hollywood romance. A chance meeting at the library at the college they both attended led to a love story that unfurled beautifully, resulting in a surprise proposal with a vintage style-sapphire ring next to a fountain at a 17th century castle in High Blantyre, Glasgow. Nice, right?

When it came to planning, Emma and Carl had it good – their run up to the day was easy and straightforward, and their decision on the venue? Just as breezy.

“When, I came across Dalton Old Pump House on Instagram, I knew that we needed to book a look around. The sheer size and grandeur of the building from the outside left us awestruck before we even set foot inside. We were given a personal tour of the building and we instantly decided that it was perfect for our wedding. The building was so beautiful and magnificent that we felt that we could have gotten married that day! We discussed our vision of our day and we were offered a fantastic, personalised wedding package.”

DECIDING TO GET MARRIED AT DALTON OLD PUMP HOUSE WAS ONE OF THE BEST DECISIONS WE’VE EVER MADE.

TIMELESS GLAMOUR

Dalton’s exquisite industrial aesthetic and glamorous, elegant feel made way for Emma and Carl’s dream low key luxe day to come into full flow. Taking a front seat in proceedings, Carl opted for bottle green as their main colour to match the venue, while Emma chose black metal candlestick holders, glass tea lights and bottle green silk table runners over white linens for a bang on-theme dining setting.

+ SOPHISTICATED
+ LUXURIOUS

Flowers included greens, whites and thistles to celebrate Emma’s Scottish heritage and lilies  – an important aspect as they had been in her late gran’s wedding bouquet.

MY GRAN LOVED FLOWER ARRANGING SO THIS WAS SOMETHING I WANTED TO GET ABSOLUTELY RIGHT. OUR FLORIST EXECUTED EXACTLY WHAT I HAD ENVISIONED!

EMMA, THE BRIDE

Their ceremony was held in the pumping room surrounded by original Victorian architecture, and there wasn’t a dry eye in the house when Emma’s mum read the poem ‘A Red, Red Rose’ by Scottish poet Robert Burns – a recital that means a lot to her family and reminds Emma of her grandad.

They then made their entrance into Dalton’s main function suite in emphatic fashion, enjoyed an indulgent fine dining wedding breakfast (which their guests still to this day comment on) and danced the night away.

FIRST DANCE NOTES 

REGAL DREAMS

Emma and Carl got the power couple memo. The beautiful bride donned the gorgeous Jess dress from Ukranian designer Eva Lendel with a pearl tiara, earrings and veil – a simple yet sophisticated look incorporating tradition and trend in equal measure.

Carl and his groomsmen dazzled in suave tuxedos, with the main man opting for an opulent emerald velvet jacket.
