Lois : Scott

Scottish Outdoor Wedding Film, Fasque Castle || Barley Roguing

Today we’re featuring the highlights film from Scott and Lois’s wedding, held at the beautiful Fasque Castle. You may remember a recent blog post featuring the illustrious Fasque castle however this film shows an alternative view of the venue. Not in the rain for an indoors wedding (though still stunning in the glistening wet), as a sun-drenched, summertime, outdoor ceremony and reception venue.

In the evening we were able to take the couple to the nearby barley fields for a relaxing jaunt. It was during this shooting with the couple that we found the title of the film “Barley Roguing”. It was, in fact, Lois who retold childhood memories of her time in the fields for barley roguing which is the task of pulling unwanted weeds from the fields of barley.

Contact us, we’d love to go Barley roguing with you!

Why do you want to capture your wedding on video?
We want a wedding video so we know our day is perfectly preserved and can be viewed and relived at any time we wish. Our wedding is a large gathering of friends and family and we don’t want to miss out on the funny moments, touching moments, and the interactions between all our family and friends. We want to capture moments that we might overlook or think were not important on the day but really are. We also want to see it from the outside perspective. It’s like standing on the Eiffel tower… we are on the thing that we want to look at…ourselves. Also, Lois has not the greatest memories due to epilepsy so a video is essential.

How did you meet?
We met at the Big Beach Ball Festival in Aberdeen May 2014. Where Scott noticed Lois and her friends. Scott tried to impress Lois he was in a band playing in the festival but Lois failed to watch his band… she’s not easily impressed. Playing it very cool must have worked because Scott asked Lois on a date the following weekend… Don’t think we ever went on a second date…

Tell us about the proposal:
I knew Lois wouldn’t like a public spectacle proposal and she had previously mentioned that she’d just like it to be at home. I also knew that including Ace in some way would seal the deal; if anyone could convince her it was a good idea, it’s him. After a number of failed attempts (including interruptions from friends, men fishing and even the police) I eventually had Lois in the house with no distractions, unfortunately, she was very hungover and had spent most of the morning laying on the sofa being cared for. I went upstairs to prepare. I’d bought a small soft toy which resembled a diamond ring for Ace. I got the actual ring ready and gave him the toy, he ran downstairs and we played the chasing game we normally play. I then said to Lois what’s that in Ace’s mouth… she looked confused, I said it’s a ring and then went down on one knee. Lois said she wanted to be surprised and this was a surprise… after saying oh my god, what are you doing? about 20 times she eventually said yes.

The venue(s) or location, why this place above anywhere else?
Our very close friends got married at Fasque and we were blown away by the building, the rooms and the attention to detail everywhere. We spent the entire wedding of our friends inside the house and that is why it is so important for us to have our wedding outside so we can enjoy and appreciate the beauty of the house and its grounds. I don’t think any place would come close but to be honest we are very decisive and didn’t look anywhere else. The house has so much character and splendour which is perfect for hosting a wedding. It was also important that we could be married in Scotland close to our homes and have the majority of our friends and family stay on.

What do you love most about your partner?
Scott, He bought me a dog which then required a house…and the rest is history…. Jokes. He would do anything for anyone including me. Always goes out of his way to help his family and friends. Especially if it involves a trip in his van (he loves his van).
His family and friends rely on him a lot (I am usually riding solo at weddings because he is usually setting up PA’s or making sure something is right) that shows he has very good traits. He can also cook and likes to cook which is a blessing to come
home after work to good food. Lois Lois is very caring, thoughtful and considerate (the way she is with Ace and all our nieces & nephews makes me know that she’ll be an amazing mum) She if fun and fun-loving, always willing to try new things and is
up for a laugh and she excites me and keeps me on my toes, I never want to let her down, although I do stumble sometimes.

Luxury Fasque Castle Scottish Destination Wedding || Love Is A Song From Kendrick Lamar

Tiffany and Norman held their Scottish destination wedding at the Luxury Fasque Castle so a beautiful and emotional wedding day.

Contact us, we’d love to film your wedding

A bit about you, what do you do, how do you spend your time? What’s important in life? I am a fashion designer and Norman works in IT. We like spending time at home and pretty much spend all our time together when not at work. We both love music and that was what really bonded us. Life is meant to be enjoyed and finding happiness is whatever forms you’d like. It can be something as small as quiet moments to loud declarations.

Tell us about the proposal: Norman proposed to me in my childhood home back in LA when we went to spend the holiday with my parents. He knew I wanted a somewhat traditional proposal where he would get permission from my parents first before he proposed. He also managed to get my closest friends to come over to celebrate the holiday with us. My friends took me out to shop while he stayed at home to prepare. I’m shy so he knew I wanted a more private proposal. He left roses in a trail leading to my old room and when I got home I followed that trail to him. I was very surprised and did not expect it so soon!

The venue(s) or location, why this place above anywhere else? I’ve never been to Scotland and that was one of the places I always wanted to see. I love old architecture and so I really wanted a wedding in a manor house or castle. Also, I’ve always wanted to see highland cows

What experience do you want from your destination wedding? We want the guests to feel comfortable, welcome, and just have fun!

A Wild Scottish Elopement Film In Glen Coe || Three Waters Meet

Tomi and Tahnee, along with Tahnee’s teenaged daughter travelled from New Zealand to adventure around our mystical country of Scotland and tie the knot in Glen Coe.

A bit about you, what do you do, how do you spend your time? What’s important in life?

Tomi is a Barber by trade, he loves his work but has many other hobbies including playing music, researching history and science and getting out on the motorbike for a ride. I work in hospitality, not my great passion in life, but it works for us right now. I love reading, drawing and getting out to explore the outdoors with my little family, usually always with a camera on hand. Tomi and I both work massive days, 5 days a week, so time spent with each other is the most important part of our family life.

Tell us about the proposal:
Tomi had just got off the phone to his then band manager. (Tomi was once the frontman to a band with a very heavy touring schedule) He and the other lads from the band had been asked to relocate countries. So, in the heat of the moment, he asked me to be his wife. He will tell you that it was the worst proposal ever, but to me, it was an honest and real moment of love that will forever be stored in the highlights section of my memory.

The venue(s) or location, why this place above anywhere else?
We have had many conversations over the years of where we would love to travel to. Scotland had always been on both of our lists. My gran was from Scotland, and after losing her and knowing she wouldn’t be there to witness our wedding day, I had Scotland on my mind a lot. Scotland is one of the most beautiful countries and family ties still there made it a no brainer for us.

Contact us, we’d love to film your wedding

A bit about you, what do you do, how do you spend your time? What’s important in life?
Laura: freelance graphic designer + new yoga teacher, Adam: photographer and expedition leader at World Challenge. We love the outdoors, skiing, hiking, yoga and travel. We have lived in our van for the last few years on and off in order to explore different ways of working and living. Work-life balance and personal growth is always our aim.

Tell us about the proposal:
We went for a walk at Glen Clova and completely spontaneously Laura asked Adam, well she said she would get married here then said ‘Will you though?’ very unplanned and Adam was shocked but we both skipped back down to the van!

The venue(s) or location, why this place above anywhere else?
It is where Laura proposed and it is incredibly beautiful, really special feeling about it.

What experience do you want from your elopement?
We want to be personal, intimate and fun. We didn’t want all the stress and attention that comes with a big wedding and this feels so much more special.
