Best Wedding Venues in Scotland

Barn Weddings

We’ve had a brilliant time today at Bachilton Barn, what a great venue for a Wedding in Scotland. As it’s a central location, it suits guests coming from all parts of the country and it also suits Meg, our 1965 Volkswagen split screen microbus as she gets to hang out and pose for photos with admirers all day long.

Not quite so easy at the Glasgow City Centre wedding we attended last week, our chauffeur could only let the Bride out and then he had to park elsewhere. At least Meg could whisk the Bride & Groom off to Glasgow Green for photos after their ceremony in The Corinthian Club. (We still have the jacket of the wedding photographer, if you are reading this, please get in touch!)

It is great when the guests get to interact with Meg and she becomes part of the Wedding entertainment. People of all ages like to get in and see what it feels like sitting in her beautiful, calm, cream interior.

The weather was a bit windy in Perthshire today, so guests weren’t outside for long but Meg waited to greet the evening guests and was well admired as always.

Farm Weddings, Rural Weddings or Rustic Weddings near Edinburgh

Other rustic wedding venues we have attended (or have bookings for) include these great venues: The Walled Garden at Strathtyrum, Kinkell Byre (both St Andrews), The Cowshed in Crail, Pratis Farm near Leven. The Byre at Inchyra, Comrie Croft, The Hermitage (all Perthshire) , Dalduff Farm in Ayrshire, The Strawberry Barn in Dunbar, Lochhouses Farm at Tyninghame, Eskmills in Musselburgh, Kirknewton Stables near Edinburgh; the list goes on…

Traditional or Themed Weddings

Hotel Weddings, Castle Weddings, Stately Home Weddings, Beach Weddings, Church Hall Weddings, Golf Club Weddings, Tipi Weddings, have all been happy events that Meg has been the wedding transport at. As she’s kept in such immaculate condition and seats seven besides the chauffeur, she is very versatile and can be well suited to different themes. Our selection of floral decorations and ribbon choices means her appearance can be personalised for you as well.

Some of her previous decorations can be seen here: http://www.vintagevwcampers.com/megs-album/ and if you are planning a VW Wedding you may want to follow Meg’s Pinterest board: https://uk.pinterest.com/vintagevwcamper/meg-the-1965-vw-lovebus/

Just remember if you want your guests to be able to enjoy Meg also that a City Centre Wedding doesn’t always allow that. No problem, if you want to keep her for only the Bridal Party & Groomsmen to sit in but tell the photographer not to leave his jacket in the wedding car!

Wedding Shows Vintage VW Style

As 2014 creeps past Halloween into an unseasonably warm November it seems an appropriate time to assess the wedding shows we have attended, to aid our planning for next year.

Two of them have been the Vintage Wedding Shows in Edinburgh; the Roxy in March and The Caledonian Waldorf Astoria in September.

Each bringing specialist, stylish vintage suppliers to what might have been described as ‘a happening’ back in the ’60s.

Then the two local ones, The Falkirk Wedding Show in that homage to ’60s architecture that is the Falkirk Town Hall and the far more beautiful, Callendar House Wedding Fair.

Finally the biggest, busiest extravaganza that was The Scottish Wedding Show at SECC. Three very different types of wedding show, all great fun to be at.

The shows all had something in common though; a real buzz of excitement, a feeling of love and joy and some seriously overwhelmed brides. As I invited the brides-to-be to step into Meg’s calming interior, I witnessed many creased foreheads smooth and many tensed shoulders relaxing.

” This is exactly what I want” was on many beautiful lips.

Sure Meg isn’t for everyone; she is very unique, fun and bright. Among a sea of silver and white wedding cars she stands out, as the ‘something blue’ for couples who like to be different. She can also of course be your ‘something borrowed’.

That’s precisely why she has been booked as a wedding gift from one fiance/e to another several times. Imagine the surprise on your betrothed’s face, when expecting the family car to turn up, they are met by Meg.

Realistically there are many romantic reasons why you may choose to book Meg, not least because she will be 50 in 2015 but there is also a smart, economical fact as well. She seats seven besides the chauffeur and if your venue and pick-up points aren’t too far apart, you can use her to transport both groomsmen and bridal parties. Now that’s canny!

Meg can be booked for all kinds of special occasions, more on that later. It’s also worth noting that Meg can also double up as your photobooth, should you want one. This will allow your guests to experience sitting in a beautifully restored 1965 Volkswagen Splitscreen Microbus as well. Sharing the joy- just the way we like it!

Next week we will be without a camper but taking bookings inside The Edinburgh Corn Exchange Wedding Fair.
