Cally & Colin’s Scottish inspired Askham Hall wedding, with Jessica Lang Photography

Thistles and kilts for a Scottish themed wedding in Penrith, with Jessica Lang Photography (12)

Today’s wedding is wonderful. A glorious mix of Lakeland and Scottish styling touches, with home grown flowers (all of them – isn’t that amazing?!), DIY details and the most beautiful bride and gorgeous groom. The venue is lovely Askham Hall, which looks fabulous and has the most incredible gardens for outdoor shots. I think my fave thing about Cally and Colin’s wedding is all the help they had from friends and family to bring their day together, and all the personal touches – an heirloom kilt; hand painted table names; oh! and a genius idea of a song from the best men which Cally explains in her interview below. You’ll love this…

A friend and colleague recommended Jess, then we met and viewed her portfolio and loved the natural, candid shots and gorgeous scenery. Jess seemed able to capture the best of every aspect in her photographs, and her relaxed and bubbly demeanour put us instantly at ease. We knew straight away that she was the right photographer for us.

We were blown away: the photos are just amazing! I’m sure it helps that they are ours, but Jess managed to capture our day so perfectly, better than we ever could have imagined. When we look at the pictures, the whole day comes flooding back, all of the small details are brought back into our memories. They’re a beautiful record of every important part of the day. When we saw our photos for the first time we were absolutely chuffed to bits, they were so beautiful, so colourful and artistic, we could not have been happier.

If you’re looking to save money on your wedding, ask for help and favours as much as possible! Also, whatever your original budget is, add about half again and that’s what you’ll probably spend so keep that in mind from the start. We’re glad we allocated more of our budget to the venue though: it made the whole thing incredible.

Wedding venue:

Askham Hall in the Lake District

Wedding month:

August

Can you describe your wedding in fewer than 10 words?

The most brilliant day ever

Your wedding style or theme:

No theme, just things we like!

Where did you find your suppliers? (Blogs, magazines, recommendations?)

Mainly recommendations and friends of friends, and family helped a lot!

Where did you buy or source your wedding stationery – or was making it a labour of love?

My good friend Sarah Dutton designed our invites and table plan, and a printer I work with printed them all for us, we didn’t have any more stationery, kept it nice and simple. I painted all of the table names and place names myself.

Did you fall in love with your wedding dress?

Yes I think so, although I was worried about the glitzy bits at first, but then I thought, when will I ever wear something like this again, and decided to go for the glitzy bits.

Tell us about your accessories: jewellery, shoes and anything else!

I picked simple jewellery that my then fiancee bought for me as a wedding day gift. My shoes were sparkly Kurt Geiger ones, nothing too flashy, Im not into big designer labels.

And what did the groom wear?

Traditional highland attire, including a beautiful kilt that was inherited from his uncle Jock.

Beautiful bridesmaids: what did your best girls wear?

knee length light sage green dresses from Coast – they all looked amazing.

Hair and make-up – did you DIY or hire a professional?

Our make-up was done by a professional make up artist – Chloe Holden – who was fantastic, from the trial day through to the big day she was friendly and attentive, and extremely skilled with make up. I felt completely comfortable all day and felt that I looked lovely, which i never normally feel. Hair was done by Capelli salon in Penrith, their stylists came out to our venue.

Describe your wedding flowers. Who arranged them for you? (florist details would be lovely please)

My dad’s partner Jacqui grew the flowers with some help from my dad, then Jacqui created all of the arrangements, bouquets and buttonholes, it was a huge ordeal and she did amazingly, we could not thank her enough really, they were better than any florist would have done and much more personal.

General styling – did your venue need much decoration?

Just the flowers and we hired some lighting, it didn’t need much as it is such a stunning place.

Crafts and makes – tell us about any homemade elements of your wedding… did you enjoy them?

I hand painted all of the table names and place names, it took hours and hours, but they looked pretty cool

The wedding cake: what kind of cake did you choose and why?

We wanted a bright, fun cake, and thats what we got!!!

Entertainment: any musical recommendations, surprises or treats?

the only part of the day that caused me to cry was a surprise ‘re-written’ version of the Proclaimers 500 miles, sung to us by two of the best men, it was so brilliant, and funny, and personal, I sobbed all the way through. Our ceilidh was pretty fun as well.

Words of wisdom: share your best piece of advice for other couples:

Don’t stress about anything, there is no point, it doesn’t need to be stressful, just do everything in plenty of time and you wont need to worry. things will go wrong but you’ll sort them out, so just enjoy it.

What’s the best thing about being married?

The knowledge that the person you want to commit your life to, wants to commit theirs to you as well.
