A Relaxed Glenfinnan Wedding – Kari & Scott

I’ll get right to it. Kari and Scott’s intimate Glenfinnan wedding was just beautiful and one of a kind because they spent it the way they both wanted to. Intimate, only with relatives who came here from several parts of the world: Canada, Hungary, Belgium, and Scotland. 

Kari first fell in love with Glenfinnan when she first saw it a few years ago. The beautiful Glenfinnan House Hotel is surrounded by the Scottish Highlands, on the lakeside with the Glenfinnan monument in the background.

Glenfinnan House Hotel Weddings: Beauty, Nature & Loch Shiel As A Dramatic Backdrop

Kari and Scott prepared together in one room overlooking the Glenfinnan Monument, Loch Shiel, and the Scottish Highlands. When I saw the bridal bouquet made by Wild Iris Studio, my mouth opened with delight — yellow anemones and poppies mixed with dry fern leaves. How they fit perfectly with the season and Kari’s jacket! The rings were handmade from grandmothers’ gold jewellery. 

There were five of us in a tiny room. We talked, we laughed. Julia, Kari’s sister, helped do her make-up and hair.

Then we went for a walk along the path that led from the museum to the Glenfinnan Viaduct Viewpoint. The Scottish Highlands were still dim, pastel brown, and orange. The ferns, heather, and grass hadn’t turned green yet. They were still dry. It gave that place a wonderful atmosphere. On the way, tourists congratulated Kari and Scott.

Kari and Scott’s wedding ceremony was scheduled for an earlier time but was postponed to late afternoon — regardless, it was full of laughter, tears, and happiness.

They spent the evening in the hall by the fireplace. The table was decorated with bunches of roses and gypsophila, and a custom-made glass engraved with the names of Kari and Scott and the date of their wedding.
