Paul and Ken's Vow Renewal at Boturich Castle

Paul and Ken wanted to do something special to celebrate their 20th anniversary of being together and 8 years of marriage. Traveling from California to renew their vows in Scotland, Boturich Castle was the perfect backdrop for the celebration.

Trying to control all the different elements of the big day soon became a mammoth task. Realising that they needed some help, Paul and Ken decided to get in touch.

Working closely with Suzy at 88 Events the couple were able to create the stress-free, spectacular wedding they were looking for.

Ceremony & Reception Styling

Paul and Ken chose a warm colour palette of blue, green and ivory to complement the Roses, Hydrangea, Thistles and Heather that made up their lovely floral arrangements and centrepieces. For the ceremony, Chiavari chairs dressed with our Sand Milano Seat Pad Covers complimented the light and airy surroundings of the marquee.

Four white doves were released following the vow renewal ceremony. The doves had a significant symbolic meaning to the happy couple, representing their parents who were sadly no longer with them.

For the table styling, a beautiful choice of Sand Milano Linen with a stunning layered combination of Gold Beaded and Latte Lattice Charger Plates made for a luxurious feel.

We placed custom-designed menus in a Sand Milano napkin pocket, personalised with each guest's name and their menu choice. For the table names Paul and Ken choose locations that they had visited together.

Paul & Ken insisted upon creating a great party atmosphere for their guests. So Suzy helped arrange an eclectic mix of entertainment including a traditional Scottish piper to greet guests upon arrival and a string quartet to play classical music during the ceremony and more modern music at dinner.

After dinner, we transformed the space with atmospheric lighting. This provided the perfect backdrop to the highlight of the night as our sax player joined DJ Stevie Sole for a jam session that had guests on the dancefloor all night.

Paul & Ken were a lovely couple who were a pleasure to deal with from start to finish. We hope they have many happy years together.

"Trying to organize a destination wedding from California, in Scotland, is no small feat to accomplish. At first we thought of trying to do this ourselves but quickly realized we needed help, and Suzy at 88 Events impressed us the first time we spoke with her, and continued to amaze and impress us throughout our year of pre-planning. Our wedding was spectacular at Boturich Castle on the banks of Loch Lomond, with every detail and nuance we desired addressed by Suzy and the 88 Events team. My husband Paul and I highly recommend 88 Events for your big day. They make it all seem so easy, and that is a HUGE gift on that most important day."
