As we’ve settled in to this bizarre ‘new normal’, more and more couples are embracing something we’ve been preaching for years. Wee weddings are amazing! Honestly. This alternative Glasgow micro wedding is the perfect example. The beauty of a wee/micro wedding is that it can be so focused on you and the people you love. It can be as personal as you like and still full of fun. Plus you have that extra flexibility that you often don’t have with a bigger wedding.
Suzanne + Kevin got hitched at the beautiful Kibble Palace within Glasgow’s Botanic Gardens. They had a wonderfully intimate and meaningful ceremony, surrounded by their parents and siblings. Our favourite part of the ceremony was Suzanne pinning the Grape Soda badge from ‘Up’ onto Kev’s jacket… Kev always compares their relationship to Carl and Ellie’s from the film! A beautiful little moment from these two Disney lifers! After a burst of confetti and fizz, we wandered around the glasshouse to explore more of this green wonderland.
We had planned on taking in some of Glasgow’s mural trail, but with the weather taking a turn for the worse (as is tradition in Glasgow!) Suzanne + Kev instead made a pitstop to drop off their paperwork, making their marriage officially official! We then headed for the Barras to steal some more sweet moments of our super-cool newlyweds; Suzanne’s amazing sequin dress and leather jacket combo is a forever favourite bridal look!
Then it was off to WEST to catch up with the rest of the wedding party, but not before pulling a couple of pints in the brewery. The choice of WEST as a reception venue was brilliant. Guests took a brewery tour while we were off exploring the city, the styling of their intimate dining area was beautifully minimal, merging the greens and neutral tones of the rest of the day with the beerhall’s industrial feel perfectly; and it was all rounded-off with a beer tasting session before dinner was served.
The whole day was filled with activity and yet still felt so relaxed and personal. Suzanne + Kev designed a wedding day that was true to themselves and still included every one of their guests. A shining example of an alternative Glasgow micro wedding done right. We hope this provides some inspiration if you’re thinking about doing something similar!
