Logie House Wedding (a.k.a. maybe the most fun wedding ever)
Logie House Wedding // If I tried to sum up Heather and Blair’s wedding in one word, it would be FUN. Their Logie House wedding was, like so many, postponed due to The Thing That Shall Not Be Named, but when the day came round it was absolutely worth the wait.
Logie House wedding venue
Heather and Blair’s wedding venue was a total stunner: originally a fortified castle, it’s now a private country house set in 130 acres of rolling Scottish countryside.
“There are so so so many reasons we fell in love with a Logie House wedding,” Heather says. “We loved that we had full exclusive use from the Friday – Monday so we could stretch out the wedding weekend (milked it!). The stunning ballroom was in a separate building about 30 steps from the house, it has 2 outdoor hot tubs and an indoor pool so we knew it would be a good party house.
“It also sleeps 40 people so we had plenty of room for all our closest friends and family to stay with us. It is also dog friendly, a huge bonus point for us as we couldn’t have had a wedding without our dog there. The owners and wedding coordinator are also the loveliest people, so it was an easy choice for us.”
An Aberdeen wedding full of infectious energy, and personal touches
No, not that kind of infectious. I joined both Heather and Blair on the morning of their Logie House wedding, and from the get go their joy and excitement was palpable. They were also well up for a laugh, too – as evidenced when it was time to walk down the aisle. Their dog, Lola, walked down the aisle with groomsman Jason…who was chosen deliberately because he’d told Heather and Blair beforehand that he didn’t like her, and called her the warthog!
Heather walked down the aisle already beaming, accompanied by her brother and step dad (who actually accidentally stood on her dress at the top of the aisle, pulling the veil clean out of her head! Again, this was all taken in good stride – Heather found it hilarious, and looks back on it fondly as setting the tone for the rest of the day.)
As well as being wall-to-wall fun their Logie House wedding day was also super personal, full of unique details that were special to them. From their ceremony, where they wrote their own vows, had their mums as witnesses, and Heather’s 3 best friends did a surprise reading; to the cocktail hour, where a local musician who Heather had once commissioned a slowed down version of Disclosure’s Latch for Blair played; to the reception, where their best friends had mixed the commissioned song with the original to make a totally unique first dance song.
Before that, though, Heather and Blair had secretly asked Gav on Sax, who’d made an appearance at Heather’s hen party, to come to their Logie House wedding and play before the band came on. They also had a glitter bar, as well as a ball pit (which was apparently intended for the kids…but as you can see made an excellent photo opportunity at the end of the night!)
This super bespoke, high energy celebration style was present for everything on the day. The group shots with the smoke bombs, the couples’ portraits, the dinosaur cake toppers, the speeches, the neon signage…even the pampas grass flowers, arranged so beautifully by Eucalyptus & Twine. On Sunday evening, Heather and some of her girls took down the flowers from the staircase, the top table display and the arch flowers, and created lots of bouquets for everyone to take home. Now, two of these are pride of place in Heather and Blair’s home. How lovely is that?!
But don’t just take my word for it…
Now, the eagle-eyed among you will have noticed that a Logie House wedding is, in fact, an Aberdeen wedding, and that therefore this fun wedding photography took place a fair distance from my home. You might be thinking Jordanna! I thought you were a London wedding photographer! How come you’re photographing an Aberdeen wedding?! And the answer is: because Heather and Blair asked me to! In fact, Heather had this to say about choosing me:
“Photography for me was always the most important thing for our wedding… memories can fade but photos live forever. I really value good photos so Blair and I spent HOURS endlessly googling photographers trying to find the perfect one for our day. We came across Jordanna and after viewing a few galleries knew we had to get her locked in. Every single picture on every gallery we viewed was fit for a frame, and our gallery was absolutely no exception.
We knew we definitely didn’t want cheesy, traditional looking, posed photos – we just wanted to have fun and someone to capture it and Jordanna gave us that entirely!! We loved Jordanna’s laid back personality, colourful photography and I genuinely feel like I have gained a friend in her. She’s 100% the best decision we made!”
I’ll just leave that there whilst I sob into my keyboard…thank you, Heather and Blair, you brilliant people you.
