Huge love to The Hendrys for these beautiful images.
The ever lovely Lisa Devine was on hand to capture the love, thank you so much for sharing these images with us.
Stylish Bride alert!
Back at the end of March, we were delighted to join a whole host of Glasgow Wedding Collective friends to work together on Caitlin’s beautiful wedding. The Glasgow Art Club was filled with highly scented Hycinths to herald in the start of Spring, and Caitlin’s trailing bouquet was filled with Lilac, Paperwhites and the darkest plum Ranuculus you ever did see.
Lovely stuff x
Hello blog, it has been a while . . .
You may have seen this wedding on the beautiful Love My Dress last week, but we couldn’t resist sharing a little bit of the pretty over here too.
When the lovely Lindsey asked us to create her woodland vision at Crear, we said yes please! This was the first time that I had been back at Crear since our own wee wedding last year, and as I turned up the drive I had a lump in my throat remembering what an amazing time we had there. Such a beautiful, peaceful place that I will always hold very dear.
Lindsey asked us to sprinkle a little woodland magic over this gorgeous space, and the air in the room was heavy with the intoxicating scents of Spring. Antlers laced with Broom hung from the beams alongside scented chandeliers with delicate Narcissus. Bloody lovely.
The Bridal bouquet, packed full of David Austin roses, Narcissus and Frittilaria, had a scattering of the most delicate Forget- Me-Nots to remind Lindsey of the Machair of her childhood home on Lewis. Oh, and we made her the most delicate of flowery crowns, with fresh flowers hand stitched onto ribbon tumbling all the way down her back.
Huge shout out to all The Glasgow Wedding Collective team mates who played a part in this gorgeous wedding, and particularly The Kitcheners, for all the stunning images. Love you guys.
New Year greetings to you all flower lovers!
For many of you this year is the year that you get married, and we are beyond exited here at Myrtle & Bracken HQ for all the exiting, creative weddings that have landed on our desk. It is also the year that we are introducing our cutting garden, bringing you some of our very own British Flowers.
But before we get digging and sowing, we thought we would share this gorgeous little elopement that happened towards the end of 2014.
If ever there was an elopement that captured the essence of romance and true love, here it is. Jess and Jacob eloped to the beautiful Scott’s View in the Scottish Borders, overlooking the valley of the River Tweed, which is reputed to be one of the favourite views of Sir Walter Scott with nothing more than a bouquet, a buttonhole and a delicate floral crown.
Our favourite lady Caro Weiss was on hand to capture the love and we are thrilled to have been invited to play a part in this intimate wedding.
What a beautiful couple.
We were thrilled when US based photographers Orange Photographie got in touch to say that they were visiting Scotland and wanted to do a little shoot. They have been longing to capture a little piece of Scotland on film so along with our favourite hair and make up ladies Anne Marie Macelroy and Julie Diplacito, we pulled together this little inspiration shoot using a real, totally in love couple.
Samantha and Reid of Orange Photographie have captured Scotland beautifully and are hoping to visit again very soon, and the good news is that they are looking to shoot real weddings. So if you like their style, head on over to their gorgeous website and make an inquiry and hopefully we can tempt them over for some 2015 weddings.

Another blog post, another beautiful seasonal wedding at The Byre at Inchyra.
This late Autumn wedding was packed full of lush Autumnal foliage’s, berries and Rose hips. Lots of Rose hips.
We installed a simple ceremony backdrop in the byre of lace to highlight our Rose hip curtain, suspended from a mushroom and moss covered branch.
Aine, we loved all the seasonal details of your wedding, you look absolutely beautiful! And so pleased you had our Glasgow Wedding Collective friends Kitchener Photography to capture your day, and Lazy Sunday on catering.
Pine cones for place cards. Love it x
Back in August, we made the 5 minute trip from our home down to Sorn Castle for Jennifer’s wedding. And what a pretty wedding it turned out to be!
The air in the Castle was laden with the scent of Sweet Peas, Oregano and fresh Mint to compliment Jennifer’s bouquet of Armando roses, fresh herbs and Passion Flower.
Don’t forget, you can catch up with all the Glasgow Wedding Collective team this Sunday at The Lighthouse, 11am-5pm for the best little wedding fair in the country. Entry is free.
Hope to see you there! x
