Louise & Malte - April '22

The barn became a hive of activity on the day preceding Louise and Malte’s wedding day as different friends and family members who had travelled from around the world arrived to greet the happy couple and offer assistance with the preparations. There was a very exciting buzz as people were introduced for the first time or were reunited as these two families came together. A real sense of teamwork could be felt as roles and tasks were assigned and Louise and Malte’s vision started to come together after months of planning.  

On the morning of the wedding, laughter could be heard from the driveway when approaching the Old Coach House as Louise and her girls enjoyed having their hair and make-up done, before putting on their incredible dresses. Louise descended the spiral staircase to reveal her incredible Rebecca Ingram of Maggie Sottero bridal gown to her bridesmaids.  A stunning blush colour, the bride’s dress was complemented beautifully by the bridesmaid’s lovely pink dresses with just a sprinkle of sparkle! 

Music was always going to play a big part in Louise and Malte’s big day and it punctuated the celebrations throughout. Their Church community blessed them with rejoiceful music during their Church ceremony before guests made their way to Curds Hall Barn to enjoy the soulful sounds of Malte’s, very talented, dad playing saxophone alongside a pianist. 

Ahead of the wedding breakfast, there was a quick tutorial before the Woodshed erupted with the sound of Malte and Louise’s family and friends joining together to sing traditional Swedish songs accompanied by a shot of Aquavit - a great prequel to some wonderful speeches. 

Before the band took over in the evening, the musical highlight of the day had to be Louise taking to the microphone to sing a song that she had written especially for Malte. Now, you can forget the idea of slushy, romantic ballads, no, this song was sung to the tune of George Ezra’s Shotgun and was full of hilarious anecdotes of their meeting and their time together so far - an undeniable masterpiece!! 

Following the speeches, a selection of bespoke gourmet burgers (this couple’s favourite meal) were served by Country Box Catering and after dinner, coffee was accompanied by a selection of both German and Swedish chocolates - a delicious treat for guests and another nod to their family homelands. 

As darkness fell, Louise and Malte’s guests made their way outside to form a sparkler guard of honour for the newlyweds before they headed back inside to cut their cake. The gorgeous three-tier semi-naked cake was made up of three different flavours and was served alongside delicious hot food.

Guests took to the stairs and the mezzanine eager to get the best view of the newlyweds as they took to the dance floor for a very romantic first dance. Band, Bear Club, then played to a very full and very energetic dance floor as this couple’s guests strutted their stuff late into the night.

Congratulations Malte and Louise, we hope you enjoy your break in bonny Scotland!
