A winery wedding with Scottish traditions

What an incredible celebration Sarah and Stephen’s Sirromet wedding was. With a very special love story and some great Scottish wedding traditions, the ceremony was full of fun, laughter and love and the vibe was through the roof!

5 STAR REVIEW “Cara was a great celebrant – highly recommend. Very helpful in the lead up, made us feel comfortable on the day and we had many positive comments from our guests about how well the ceremony ran” 

In classic Scottish tradition, the groom and groomsmen wore kilts in the Stephen’s families tartan clan, combined with traditional Prince Charlie jackets, waistcoats and the classic sporran pocket – perfect for holding that hip flask for a ‘wee dram!’

It’s always great seeing guests arrive at Scottish weddings in full Scottish attire too.

Sarah was glowing as she arrived and was walked down the aisle by both of her parents, and the inclusion of family continued as the ceremony commenced with both sets of parents invited to show their support of the couple’s marriage.

I had so much fun sharing their love story and the guests absolutely loved it!

Sarah and Stephen first met at a house party when Sarah was fresh out of high school. After chasing many of her brother’s friends during school, she was drawn to the older boy at the party, who happened to be Stephen.

They had an instant attraction to each other and spent the night chatting, however Stephen had a girlfriend at the time, so that was that. Until several years later, when Sarah and Stephen met again in New Zealand on a group ski trip. Stephen caught Sarah’s attention with his witty jokes and love of adventure, and despite his haircut choice, Sarah found him to be very intelligent.

Sarah caught Stephen’s attention with her beautiful smile, her dance moves and he found her to be extremely cheeky! They stole any opportunity to get to know each other and once back home and back to reality, their relationship continued.

Their love and relationship grew and they spent their time partying, camping, playing sport, partying some more, and enjoying the great outdoors.

Their dreams of travelling came to life as they took a 6-month sabbatical to see the world – and some football games! Sarah met Stephen’s family in Italy and Scotland, where they were both welcomed with open arms and into their homes.

Sarah and Stephen realised on that trip that no matter where they were in the world, they felt truly at home when they were together.

Once realising their lives were better together, they haven’t looked back and promised to make a family of their own.

After surviving home renovations, Stephen knew it was time to propose. He chose Magnetic Island as the place to do it, knowing it’s where Sarah feels most relaxed.

She knew something was up when ‘he was the first one out of bed for a morning walk. After a lot of coercion to skip breakfast, and realising that there was champagne in the esky, Sarah went along with Stephen to find a secluded beach.

His proposal was perfect- champagne, a boiled egg, a beautiful ring, and of course – a naked old man going for his morning swim! It turned out the secluded beach was actually a nudist beach!

The signing of marriage certificates took place on a wine barrel which was very fitting with the venue being a winery.

To conclude their celebratory ceremony, once they were introduced as married, the guests cheered loudly, and the happy newlyweds made their way back down the aisle together through clouds of colourful biodegradable confetti.
