I have been following the story of TiffanyRing on the SWD forum for a while now. An excited bride to be, it has been a pleasure reading all about the joys and decisions she has made for her big day.
Speaking about planning their wedding, Elaine says “I loved the planning! Best bit of planning, I would have to say picking my dress. I loved trying them all on, although the one I eventually chose was picked out by the sales assistant as she felt I was choosing ones to try that were “too old” for me! I’m glad she was good at her job!”.
After 2 years of planning, Elaine and Brian finally had their big day. No nerves (perhaps due to the champagne?!) just excitement to see her hubby to be and all their friends and family there to share their wedding day.
And what a day it looked to be! Elaine and Brian’s photograher, Steven Higgins, has kindly shared some photos for you all to have a peek!
Speaking of why the couple chose St Andrews in the Square, Elaine says;
“We wanted a city venue in Glasgow that we could have the ceremony & reception in to save travelling etc plus I’m a real Glasgow girl so didn’t want countryside etc. plus I knew the food had an excellent reputation and we totally fell in love with the building, so beautiful.”
“This was one of my favourite parts of the day – it is such a beautiful entrance to SAINTS and when the doors opened and I heard my music I was beaming from ear to ear! I loved seeing all my guests and my groom, of course, at the top waiting for me. It was a magical moment that I will never forget.”
With so many memories from the day, I asked Elaine if she had one that sticks in her head;
“Well apart from walking down the aisle, I loved dancing with my groom at the first dance, as well as all my family & friends at night. Me and all my friends jumping up and down to my favourite song, Mr. Brightside!”
I love this photo above of the couple making their entrance to the wedding breakfast – to the tune of Rocky!
“We hired a baby grand piano for the venue and a pianist as we wanted something a bit different – we had seen pipers, harpists & string quartets at other weddings but the piano looked amazing at saints and our pianist was brilliant – well worth the money.”
And some final words from Elaine on being married,
“I think, after 9 years, it is great to say that I’ve married my best friend and that we feel an extra closeness, if that’s possible! I love having my memories of the day and people telling us what a great day they had, it makes it extra special.”
Seeing this wedding at St Andrews in the Square makes me mega excited, the place look fabulous – a truly awesome place to hold a wedding! Big thanks to Elaine and Brian for letting me show off their day!
