Anyone form Aberdeen..?


I thought i would introduce myself.. I'm Jenny, my fiance and i got engaged in december and i dont have a clue where to start with anything.. We have a rough idea for a date (July 2015) but thats as far as we have got..

If there is anyone from Aberdeen who could help me out it would be super! image

Im looking for ideas for venues at the moment.. ive got a few ideas Kings College and Drumtochty Castle.. If anyone has any recommendations on places or any advice on places to avoid it would be so helpful..





  • Hi Jenny,

    I live in Aberdeen and getting married in May 2013, we are getting married at Meldrum House, Oldmeldrum.

    You will get lots of ideas on here or have a look at Grampian Wedding Directory.

    Hi everyone!

    I'm impressed there are so many Aberdeen brides on here image

    Congrats Hastie88! There are loads of lovely places on Aberdeen, esp some here that the girls have mentioned. Places like Melrum house book up quick!

    There's also Logie Country House which starts doing weddings next year!

    I agree with the Grampian directory but I'm sure the girls on here will keep you straight image

    I get married next Nov at Castle Fraser! Good luck with all your planning xx

  • Hi everyone. I'm Louise. I live in Ellon,and am getting married on 21st June 2014 at Dunnottar Church, Stonehaven, then reception is at Ardoe House. We only got engaged in June, but time is just flying by. Got Church, Hotel, Piper, Band and Photographer booked, and ordered my gorgeous Ian Stuart Couture gown 4 weeks ago - I can't wait.

    Ian Stuart! Wow! Plus you are super prepared Madge! But is it me or do you have to be in Aberdeen, things get booked up so quick!

    I've got my first dress shopping on the 27th,,, not best planned straight after Christmas but excited non the less!! X
  • Hey Kdw87. Yes, things seem to get booked really quick. When we were looking for dates, Ardoe only had 1 Saturday left for June 2014. Thankfully, we were first to book the church for that year, so could have our pick. I only went dress shopping to see a particular dress, which is only stocked in 2 shops in Scotland, but ended up with the Ian Stuart one - fell in love with it even when it was on the hanger. Where are you headed for shopping? I went to Eleganza Sposa in Glasgow. Just happens to be where our Best Man's wife got here dress 10 years ago. What a coincidence. Didn't look in any other shops, and it won't be here till June. Can't wait.x

    Very true, I think I've been a bit luckier going for a winter date, I would have had to out it years back going for a summer date.

    I'm going to perfect bridal rooms on Aberdeen, for the same reason as you, there is a Provonias dress I've been google image stalking! I've heard nearly every bride say that before, end up coming out with something completely different to what they first thought, but try know when it's the one! Sounds like you've got that with yours image June will be here before you know it!

    I took a winter date and am having to wait till feb 8th 2014 for meldrum house!
  • Hi Sarah, it seems to book so quickly we booked in Oct2010 for May 2013 that was the date we wanted as ties in with our anniversary as well but even when we booked there were already a few of the summer Saturdays gone xx
