VENUE Why did you choose the Shireburn Arms?

Laura attended her Uncle’s wedding at the Shireburn Arms in 2015 and fell in love with it. Laura said if she was ever to get married in the UK without a doubt it would be there.

When Covid hit in 2020 and the original wedding plans were shattered, there was only one place we were contacting and without Jack even viewing the venue we booked it!

We both had the beef as this was our favourite from the two taser evenings we attended, we got good comments on all food choices on the day.

PHOTOGRAPHY Your photos are amazing, who was your photographer

We chose Marina Walker, Laura had a photo shoot with Marina a few years ago and clicked with her instantly, we knew we wanted her as our photographer.

ENTERTAINMENT Did you have any Entertainment?

Brothers of Swing.

WEDDING COORDINATOR How was your experience with your Wedding coordinator?

Amazing … Sarah was wonderful in helping with everything leading up to the day and the several date postponements. She took so much stress away from us, especially as we were due a baby just 8 weeks before our wedding.

PLANNING Who helped plan your wedding? Did anyone in particular bring your wedding to life?

Megan, Sarah and all the team at Shireburn.

Creative Events who supplied the chair covers and table cloths. The tables looked absolutely amazing, so much better than what I’d imagined, the staff did an amazing job setting everything up.

Our Mums also did a great job with our beach themed arch for the bottom of the aisle.

EXTRA'S Tell us about the little things that made your day personal?

We decided to have one the Pump clips dedicated to my dad.

All our guests commented on all the little touches we added to the tables and favours. It was just such the perfect day, making all the postponing 100% worth it.
