I love how unique weddings are. Every couple has something that they bring to their wedding that makes it completely their own. It might be a new dress design, a hilarious new take on the best man’s speech, or in the case of Jen and Andy’s Scottish Sci-fi Spring Wedding at Farnham Castle a whole lot of monkeys. Yup. Monkeys.
The day was a chilly spring day, but what it lacked in sunshine it made up for in flowers. Bright daffodils and tulips popped like little spots of sunshine everywhere across the grounds. I was so pleased to come back to Farnham Castle for Jen and Andy’s wedding. We enjoyed exploring the vast grounds of the venue on their engagement shoot so much, so it was to discover more about this amazing place.
A Scottish Sci-fi Spring Wedding that breaks the mould
Jen and Andy definitely did their day their way. Both are self-confessed science-fiction geeks and there were tons of sci-fi references across the whole day. From the table names to the place settings and confetti cones, every detail was Sc-fi themed. Add to that that Jen is a Chef who made her own wedding cake. That doesn’t sound stressful at all. And then there were the monkeys. Jen carried a small and well-loved monkey toy from her childhood as part of her bouquet. It was a lovely, nostalgic and quite subtle detail that I thought was just fabulous. Then, lo and behold, during the speeches, a whole host of monkey masks appeared. Completely hilarious, mould breaking and unique.
I love to discover a couple’s capacity for silliness and Jen and Andy have it in spades. I knew they were planning something special for their first dance. And when it started and Andy and Jen danced into the Great Hall at Farnham Castle in full 80s outfits their guests couldn’t help but laugh. From an old family heirloom Jean Jacket, to Andy’s curly blond wig and blow up air guitar, it was the perfect first dance for this hilarious couple.
When the awesome Ceilidh Tree band started to play and none of the guests could resist. Everyone twirled, jumped and jubilated. It was just a whole boat load of ceilidh fun. Way to work off the cake calories.
