Today’s wedding on the blog is of the lovely Ruth and Alex at West Beer which was a first for us and we absolutely loved it!
Our day with Ruth and Alex started off with morning preparations. Scott set off with the boys while I spent a very relaxing morning with the girls at the Grosvenor Hilton Hotel in the West End. I really do have to point out that choosing how you spend your morning and with who will affect how relaxed you feel. There’s something soothing and more in the moment and less chaotic about surrounding yourself with only a few people. If you like chaos and craziness then that’s fine of course, however I would suggest getting somewhere that is bigger for your preparations. No matter what you like it will feel cramped when it comes down to crunch time. The room Ruth had was just perfect to keep that relaxed mood going!
The day was beautiful and as we set off for the ceremony the weather looked promising with that sun in the sky! A rarity in Glasgow these days. It was only half way through the photo session we spotted a dark cloud looming up above us and then the heavens opened! Off came my jacket to cover the bride while we took the hit for her and happily so! All in good fun. Getting wet actually made me feel less guilty for not spotting that cloud before. Also, every cloud has a sliver lining as we were able to take photos in the people’s palace. The groomsmen came to the rescue here with rain-sodden canapés minus umbrellas! Priorities I guess!
Needless to say, the remainder of the day was spent indoors but West Beer is such a cool space!
Ruth, and Alex we had such an awesome day with you, your friends and family! Makes us appreciate our job so much when we get to spend time with such wonderful people! Wishing you a lifetime of lots of happy memory building and love.
