Tell us a bit about your wedding day...

Our wedding was abroad in Rovinj, Istria, Croatia with both sets of parents present.  We always wanted to get married in Croatia after being on a few holidays there, Rovinj has a beautiful old town and we were married in the town hall. We then had our pictures taken around the town and the port.  After the photographs, we had a lovely sunset meal at La Puntulina. We then celebrated with our family and friends at Parklands Hotel and Country Club in Newton Mearns for a full-on party and celebration the month after which was full fun and laughter and that is exactly what we wanted. We have been together for eight years so everyone had been waiting a long time for that party!

Who did most of the planning?

The planning was done by both of us, we had a lot of legal paperwork to organise for being married abroad which was the most stressful part.  Our parents helped us with the organisation of our party and my sister helped me a great deal too by keeping me calm! 

What was important to you when it came to choosing your suppliers?

We really wanted to use people that were close to us whether it was relatives of friends of people we knew. We wanted to keep it as straightforward as we could and have good communication channels.   

Why did you choose Beautiful Wedding Stationery to create your stationery?

We chose Beautiful Wedding Stationery because we liked the designs Michael provided.  Michael was really good at giving us guidance on what would look good and sent us a number of drafts before we agreed on the final proof.  We received lots of compliments on how good and professional our invites looked.

What type of stationery style did you order?

Gordon and Louise's fun wedding invitation complete with photos of them as children and how they look now!

We ordered wedding invites in a postcard style with images of us as children and then one of us as adults, we wanted to make them a bit quirky.

What was your colour scheme?

We went for pinks on a white background with pink text.

What influenced the style/design of your wedding stationery

We didn’t have anything really seriously thought about in mind before we contacted Michael we were happy for him to tell us what was good.  We were quite open-minded about it.

Thanks, Louise & Gordon, for sharing your day with us.
