SURPRISE WEDDING AT THE BOTHY.
KATE & GREIG, GLASGOW, 25 NOV 2018.
The uber cool Kate & Greig shunned the traditional wedding for a surprise evening event & a trip-of-a-lifetime honeymoon to Costa Rica. They chose The Bothy, in Glasgow's West End as their wedding venue. It was a really intimate and special evening, and a pleasure to film an old friend's wedding.
As their guests waited downstairs at what they thought was an engagement party, surprise number 1 came in the form of Greig's brother and his girlfriend who had returned from Australia for the special occasion. With emotions running high their friends and family were presented with surprise number 2: the couple in full wedding gear with the family's local Minister waiting to be married!
"We booked our honeymoon to Costa Rica first, and worked backwards from that. I can’t believe we pulled it off, but it was worth it to see everyone’s reactions when we walked in. Everyone was so emotional and the double whammy of his brother being there just made the day perfect. Be selfish. The surprise element was to eliminate stress from us and everyone loved it."
Their wedding received a lot of attention from blogs across the globe thanks to its surprise element. Read more about it in Tie The Knot Scotland's feature:
Kieran and Jess filmed our surprise wedding in November and we genuinely couldn’t of picked anyone better. Not only are they are both lovely people but they completely understood what we were after, their style really complimented ours and our day perfectly.
We really didn’t know 100% what we wanted and gave them absolutely zero direction haha but they both were so professional zipping around the chaos of a surprise wedding and nobody even noticed they were there and the results were amazing.
It’s Something we’ll treasure for the rest of our lives. All I knew was I didn’t want something staged looking and our video is that exactly, it’s perfect and we can’t thank them enough for their hard work and for everything they’ve done for us
