Kathleen + Ben || Bloody Lush || Micro Wedding Scotland

We’re being asked quite a lot about what we think of Micro Weddings with really restricted numbers. We LOVE them, they are so personal and the importance of the wedding seems even more heightened. Check out this Micro Wedding Film and their story below.

Last year was quite tumultuous for most however in July Kathleen and Ben got in touch to say they were planning a Micro Wedding and wanted our help. Two months later they had a beautiful intimate ceremony and wedding at Borthwick Castle with a small handful of family and friends. Two days after that we kept the celebrations going with an adventure session in Glencoe, where we paddled in the river and set some symbolic white roses off into the water too.


How did you meet?
At Kamalaya on Koh Samui. I met Ben’s Mum before I met him. The first date was on a private boat and lunch on a private island. He lived in Paris and I lived in Tokyo but we knew within 5 mins of talking. He moved to Tokyo 6 months later.

Tell us about the proposal:
New Year’s Eve 2019 on a beach outside Oban watching the most stunning sunset. Ben got down on one knee. We had already picked an engagement ring and both wedding rings together the week before but I wasn’t expecting the proposal so quickly. We had amazing seafood lunch at Loch Fyne restaurant that day and have replicated it for our wedding rehearsal dinner.

The venue(s) or location, why this place above anywhere else?
We decided at the end of June to get married in Aug/Sept and only looked at two places – Gleneagles and Borthwick Castle. The castle was beautiful and the staff were great so just decided. No long search. In our heads, we had thought of a beach in Bali or Villa del Balbianello on Lake Como. Never planned Scotland but have just gone with the flow and it’s all working out fine.
