Horton Grange: Angela And Andrew A Late Summer Wedding With Scottish Flair

By Paula

Based on the Latin rule ‘omne trium perfectum’ it has long been believed that the best things in life come in groups of three. This is certainly true for Angela and Andrew, who have three special reasons to celebrate on the 28th September each year. It is the date they first met back in 2014, the date Andrew proposed three years later while in Sri Lanka, and most significantly the date of their intimate wedding last year.

Horton Grange Real Wedding Angela And Andrew

 

The sunny late-summer’s day allowed the couple to exchange their vows outdoors in the natural grounds of Grade II listed Country House Hotel Horton Grange, surrounded by their closest family and friends. Angela was keen to keep the day relaxed and informal, with the focus on entertainment, fun and celebration, and nothing, in her words, “overly ‘done’ or matching.”

They chose a largely neutral colour palette, with lots of foliage and romantic candles, then deliberately peppered it with Scottish touches – including thistles in Angela’s bouquet and Glasgow’s finest Tunnock’s teacakes as wedding favours – to doff their cap to Andrew’s Scottish heritage.

The outfits

The groom and his father both wore a waistcoat custom-made in a modern version of the family clan tartan, with Andrew also wearing tartan trousers, while the father of the bride opted for a tradition version of the same tartan. To offset the men’s more flamboyant Scottish attire, Angela chose a stunning Wtoo by Watters gown, with a beautiful fanned lace design and elegant pearl buttons, from Leigh Hetherington Bridal.

Angela said: “Leigh is an absolute perfectionist and altered it beautifully to make sure it fitted like a glove; I would highly recommend her.”

The venue:

“We went to look around Horton Grange based initially on location and we were so impressed from the outset, it’s a lovely country house and we’d highly recommend it; everything was brilliant,” said Angela. “The staff were amazing both in the planning and on the day, the venue was decorated beautifully and the food was delicious. Everyone had an amazing day and it was absolutely perfect for us.”

The photographer:

Angela said: “Erika was recommended to us and we both really liked the look of her work. It seemed quite casual and relaxed, exactly the style we wanted. We have some incredible shots, which really capture the moment.”

Something special:

“It was important to us to add personal touches, so I handmade the confetti cones from pages of an old copy of Alice in Wonderland. Wherever we travel we try to pick up a copy of the book, so we have versions in Russian, Danish, German and French.”

Wedding Highlight:

Angela and Andrew made their entrance to their wedding breakfast to 2 Unlimited’s 90‘s hit Get Ready For This. “The room went crazy and it really set the party atmosphere for the rest of the day and into the evening.”

Angela’s Advice:

“Don’t get too hung up on the detail and be true to yourselves. Decide what you feel the most important things about the day are and focus on those.”
