An Autumn laid back handcrafted wedding at Pollokshields Burgh Halls
So much love for all these tones, season, the light, happy bride and groom and style! What can I say I am obsessed with anything handmade and Lynsey and Michael’s day was filled with handcrafted pieces and personal touches.
Michael and Lynsey said their I Do’s surrounded by their close friends and families at Pollokshields Burgh Halls. It was a beautiful Autumn day which complimented the colours of this wedding so much. That blue sky against those bright autumnal colours was absolutely breathtaking.
I loved that both of their loves and personalities were also injected into the day. Michael has a love for coffee so a huge thing for him was having a barista at the wedding brewing up some fine coffee for their guests. Lynsey and her effortless style decided on a shorter dress to suit her personality which I LOVED seeing in its full spinning worthy glory on the dance floor in the evening.
In the couple’s words ‘We wanted a venue that could host both our ceremony and the reception, and since we’re both from the south side of Glasgow this venue was in the ideal location for most of our friends and family to get to. We loved the venue’s features like the stained glass windows and wooden panelling in the rooms. The venue didn’t require lots of decoration as it’s so beautiful already, so we could just add the touches that we really wanted. we had roughly 100 guests for the day, and an additional 50 in the evening, it took around 13 months to plan.’

- Lynsey’s mom embroidered this beautiful banner for the end of the aisle along with and the table plan
- She also made the wedding breakfast floral arrangements which she sourced from Berrydale allotments
- Lynsey hand stitched all the table numbers for the tables to match the wedding invitations
- Their friend Cass made the wedding guest book which guests filled with polaroids and messages
This goes to show that no ideas are too far-fetched guys! I absolutely loved the individuality of it and how incredible it looked, adding a quirky crafty vibe to the whole day.
Is there something you particularly have a passion for?
Why not include it into your day somehow. Michael as above has a passion for coffee so gorgeous fresh brewed coffee was on hand all day for him and his guests to enjoy.
At the end of the day this is YOUR day so it should be as you want it to be, which is what these two did perfectly and tastefully.
