When you are sent images like these to peruse at your leisure, amidst toast and endless cups of tea, all woes of the day vanish. There is so much beauty, infinity and love in these incredible images by friends and revered photographers The Curries. Their shots are always so emotional, portraying each couple shining from the inside out.

I’m a sucker for burgundy velvet. There’s something inherently beautiful about this luscious partnering of shade and texture. When a groom sports this combination, you know you’re in for an absolute treat of style and substance. And when this statement choice is mirrored by an exceptionally glorious bride, the result is the incredible celebration you see before you!

On 5th August this year, painter and framer Leo and drama teacher Inga tied the knot at the incredible Thainstone House in Inverurie, Aberdeenshire. Dating back to the 18th century and boasting a history as an impressive family home and a treasured landmark of the area. Matching the beautiful ornateness of the venue with a sense of simplicity, Thainstone House provided the most glorious backdrop for Leo, Inga and their guests.

“There were many things that attracted us to the venue but the main thing was that all the guests could stay at the hotel”, explains Inga. “All our guests came for the whole day and night and that meant we could keep the party going! Thainstone also had an old fashioned feel that we both really liked, from its colonial bar to the large sash windows and chandeliers. It also allowed dogs, so that was a massive tick at we knew we wanted Gatsby our whippet to be the ring bearer!”

Pairing her beautiful A line gown with a pair of super chic personalised (!) Choos and a beautiful Dolce and Gabbana golden headpiece, gorgeous bride Inga looks every bit the modern classic. Leo’s stylish velvet suit added to the quiet luxury of the celebration perfectly. Maids in varying gowns of blush and groomsmen rocking kilts and sharp suits perfectly rounded off the most gorgeous wedding squad. And that’s not to mention the dog…

Leo and Inga’s stationery selection was as unique as their big day. Using the monogramming trend as a base, their initials were formed into a beautiful modern image, inserted with stunning golden foil. Our Christine and Chloe suites were taken as inspiration whilst the couple added their own personality and shine to the design. As a self-confessed magpie, Inga spotted our gilt edging shimmering away on Instagram and her mind was made up!

“I had seen a picture on Instagram of a pile of save the dates with gold edges and I knew that was what I wanted.

We had save the dates, invites, place names and the order of service all created with a mixture of the Christine/Chloe collections. Leo had the idea for the chess inspired logo that we used and Jack brought our monogram to life. In gold obviously!

“I’m so glad we did as the quality of the service and stationery was amazing. Opening the box that the invites were in was like Christmas! All the gold edges did not disappoint, they were beautiful.

Mixing the chic minimalism of their stationery with luscious details of the day (cue stunning blooms by Fleuressence) gold also became a focus hue throughout the day, mixing perfectly with blush and berry tones to create a mesmerising, decadent atmosphere.

There’s something so charming and innocent about a pooch at a wedding party. And this couple’s stunning whippet Gatsby became a true focus of the day, delivering the rings to the perceivably proud couple waiting at the end of the aisle.

“We had three beautiful signs made for the wedding day. Leo framed them with traditional gold gilded frames and mounted to complement the signs”, explains Inga. “Lauren from Fleuressence complemented the signs by using her blooms to decorate the frames. We were inspired by Thainstone’s history and we wanted to keep the decoration in keeping with our opulent but modern vibe we were trying to create.”


Partying into the night, Inga and Leo’s guests seem to truly appreciate the effort that went into every beautiful detail. We love the smiling faces from each beloved family member and friend, dancing the night away. A wedding should be a glorious selection of memories to keep the couple warm through winter, picturing tiny details and monumental promises alike, each as vital as the other.

We would love to wish Inga and Leo a marriage inspired by our thoughts on their celebrations; full of light, vitality, friendly grins and LOVE in epic abundance.

Congratulations you two, this one’s a stunner!
