Fairytale Winter Wedding
When Gemma, daughter of the owners of the Edinburgh’s beloved Mimi’s Bakehouse in Leith and Mimi’s Parlour on the Royal Mile, announced her engagement to Scott, expectations were going to be high. The couple has always dreamt about a magical winter wedding in the heart of Edinburgh, and Mansfield Traquair happened to be exactly what they were searching for.
“Yes it does all feel like a dream! We had such an amazing day. We are heading on our honeymoon now, exciting… Thanks again for helping making our day so special! We loved every second of it.”
Mansfield Traquair created the perfect canvas for their romantic winter wedding – the dramatic interior is especially beautiful as the winter light fades on the stained glass windows. Gemma and Scott chose an equally dramatic and sophisticated black and cream colour theme – complementing Gemma’s dress and that of her bridesmaids. The tables were set with cream linens and black tafetta chair bows. Pinspot lighting highlighted the floral centerpieces that mimicked snow laden trees complete with sparkling baubles, hand-cut snowflake place cards and snowflakes danced across the floor thanks to our clever lighting crew.
We must not forget about the admired-by-all vintage tea tables laden with artisan cakes and sweeties. Gemma had two bakers on hand from the early morning to dress the tables and put finishing touches on the beautiful cakes, sweets and gingerbreads. Planet Flowers also designed the floral arrangements for the overflowing cake tables and a trellis to set it all off to perfection.
The lovely ceremony in the Baldacchino was accompanied by Gemma’s cousin (also a member of the band) on acoustic guitar. Following photos and a champagne reception The Pickled Piper piped the couple into the room – completely reset for the wedding breakfast. He also performed a celebratory toast to the wedding couple to kick off the meal!
After a delicious wedding breakfast followed an evening of music and dance! Gemma and Scott’s guests danced the night away under the purple-lit ceiling in celebration of happy couple’s big day! We are happy to report that not a crumb of cake was left…
