A Luxury Scottish Wedding Infused with Modern Elegance.
With the beautiful backdrop of the rolling Scottish countryside, castle venues perched on cliff edges and panoramic views, Scotland are firmly on the map for couples planning their destination wedding. Inspired by the number of couples who choose to marry in Scotland, Coleen & Hannah at Conifer Events decided to create the ultimate wedding inspiration shoot at one of Highland Perthshire’s most iconic former Baronial homes, Balnakeilly House.
Dating back to the 1500s, the vibrant interiors of Balnakeilly House perfectly offset the stunning scenery combining the luxury of a boutique wedding venue with the charm of a well-loved family home.
Edinburgh florist Wild Flowers worked closely with Conifer Events to create a simple yet elegant feel with the floristry throughout the venue. Expert florist Jenny “wanted to create an elegant and luxury look, all the while within an affordable budget, allowing couples to re-create their own dream wedding.”
Coleen McKay, Wedding Designer & Planner at Conifer Events, explains; _“During the global pandemic, Scotland has seen an increase in enquiries from couples all over the UK who may have previously chosen to be married overseas. Weddings have also seen a significant drop in guest numbers, with many couples choosing to pursue a smaller, intimate wedding. We wanted to showcase what Scotland has to offer in this particular shoot, combining the opulence and elegance of one of Scotland’s most beautiful wedding venues with the rugged Scottish countryside,allowing couples to see for themselves they really can create themost elegant wedding of their dreams right here inHighland Perthshire,Scotland.”
Complete with vibrant yet tasteful interiors, the décor showcases the true beauty of Balnakeilly House and the Scottish country estate on which it is located. Enjoy a Scottish summer with the wedding ceremony in the gorgeous walled garden hosting up to 200, or if preferred, the wedding ceremony can take place indoors, seating up to 50. Either way, your wedding will be just like a traditional Scottish fairytale.
Contemporary yet traditional, Conifer Events capture the vibrant and elegant colour palette of the venue beautifully. Hannah Perry, Wedding Designer & Planner at Conifer Events, explains, “We chose to create a stunning, traditional and elegant indoor wedding setting, encapsulating the elegance and personality of the venue itself. With couples now looking at smaller weddings due to the ongoing pandemic, a sense of intimacy can still be achieved no matter the size of the space.”
International wedding photographer Stuart Wood was completely in awe of the location and enjoyed shooting every angle of the property; _“The location and venue space is beautiful and very cleverly encapsulates both Nordic and Scottish styles. A truly unique space, and this underlines perfectly why we should be showcasing the full diversity of luxury weddings on offer in the United Kingdom. It was a fabulous experience to witness some of the creams of Scottish suppliers working closely alongside brand names such as Molton Brown on this styled shoot”. Stuart, alongside We, Are One Wedding Films, created the perfect inspirational shoot, which can be viewed here:
