Beautiful Autumnal Wedding at Hotel du Vin

Antonia Andrew 001

At 88 Events we're huge fans of Autumn weddings. At this time of year Nature is seriously on our side when it comes to creating a stunning backdrop for wedding photography

Therefore we were thrilled to hear that our Bride and Groom, Antonia and Andrew wanted to incorporate all of the colour and beauty of Autumn into their wedding design.  

With Antonia based in New York and her mother Carla in California, Andrew in London and his family in Scotland, we helped provide a concierge service to help plan their Scottish destination wedding.

It's never easy planning a wedding with everyone in different locations but we love nothing more than getting our teeth into a challenge and destination weddings are one of our specialities.

The key is to ensure constant and timely communication so that every party involved in the wedding has their say in helping to create the celebration.

Our first task was to help the couple find the perfect venue to host their intimate wedding. Hotel du Vin was eventually chose for its elegant period style and location in Glasgow's bustling west end. 

The couple wanted to create a simple and elegant style for their wedding which incorporated a beautiful pop of Autumn colour to add some wow factor.  

To achieve this we dressed the room with simple Cream Essential linen and Ivory Chiavari Chairs. We added in coloured pure linen napkins to tie in with the colour palette and created a bespoke suite of wedding stationery to be used throughout the celebration.  The stunning flowers were the jewel in the crown of the styling, featuring a bold array of tropical flowers and succulents which brought the whole room to life.

To add some fun to the evening celebration we created a cheese station and candy buffet to be served alongside the delicious 'naked' style wedding cake.

Special thanks to our chosen photographers for the day; the always fantastic Ditte of First Light Photography for the following beautiful images from the day.

The Verdict

"We have such amazingly happy memories of our wedding day, and really can't thank Suzy and Sheila enough. You were both so easy to work with, and brought our ideas to life in ways we didn't think possible. Couldn't have done it without you.

All the best,

Andrew and Antonia"
