Be creative with photography …
Getting married later in the day also meant arranging some photography outside in January – in the dark – creating some spectacular effects.
Heather said, “I knew I wanted a big group photo outside, which looked great in the dark, and we also took some photos with sparklers.”
Creating an Event for everyone …
Part of the venue’s refurbishment included the new AURA Spa, Plumpy Duck Restaurant and Stables Bar. There’s also a well-equipped children’s softball play area, state-of-the-art gym and swimming pool. There are lots for guests to experience, and many options to keep children entertained.
The hotel has 22 bedrooms and all the rooms, apart from one, were booked for Heather and David’s wedding – with 49 guests staying over. The guests who couldn’t get booked into the Bowfield were able to stay at sister hotel The Lynnhurst, in nearby Johnstone.
Heather said, “It was lovely after the wedding, as we were able to go into the bar and have a drink afterwards with everyone who was staying over. It was a nice way to round off the night.
“Another nice touch was the following morning – as all our guests who had stayed overnight had a note underneath their door asking them to come and join us for breakfast. It was like a continuation of the event. It was lovely.”
You can organise a wedding in three months …
Getting everything organised in three months might seem like a stressful task – but everything fell into place. Once Heather knew she could get her dream wedding dress in time, she booked the venue.
Heather said, “We were in a fortunate position to be able to get married almost straight away. Getting a photographer was a challenge, as well as a florist at that time of year. But everything else just fell into place. People said – I can’t believe you’ve done all this in three months, but we worked together as a wee team.”
