Louise & Johan’s wedding at Rockhaven in Elgin is one of our favourites of the season so far. Natelee has fallen in love with this venue – everything from the charm of the boat house, the rustic feel of the barn and the fact that this is a family run venue that oozes personality.
We also worked with some of our favourite suppliers – Ian of Vision on Fire that produces the most awesome wedding films, amazing lighting design by Something Different and then off course DJ Rene – the Frenchman – This guy just makes a party come alive with his very different style of using percussion instruments and sax with great club backtracks.
Then there was that Jenny Packham dress and Oscar de la Renta shoes – In Natelee’s words “Its the most beautiful dress that I have ever seen” Wow Louise – you looked absolutely breathtakingly stunning!
The ceremony was done in the Boat House – this must be one of the most romantic and tranquil settings – with the shutters rolled up on one side you have uninterrupted views over the adjacent lake and Elgin countryside. After the proceedings, guests were ushered to the terraced lawns where they enjoyed canape’s and drinks “picnic style” lounging on oversized pillows, blankets and chaise longues with lawn games like croquet and giant Jenga provided as entertainment.
The reception was held in the Barn – what a perfect fusion of decor and lighting! wow! Decor was done by Okasie – they are definitely the hottest styling & design company around at the moment! I must also commend Valery of Agape Weddings for pulling off a near perfect wedding at Rockhaven – this all while she had her own wedding just 12 days ahead!
