Scotland is one of our favourite places in the world
So we were very exicted by the idea of styling a Highland Lodge Wedding. From the outset, we wanted the interior of our ‘Lodge’ to have a cosy log cabin feel. Furthermore, it had to reflect all the glorious textures and colours of the Scottish moors and woodlands.

Our perfect palette
We found our colour scheme in a cracking tartan, woven in muted moss greens, heather pinks and thistle purples! We used this palette throughout, from the brides tartan sash to the table cloths, flowers to the pashminas draped on chairs.
Creating the Highland Lodge Wedding
We’d imagined a cosy, stone built lodge with lots of character. The Barn at Northside Farm, Northumberland was the perfect setting, with it’s rustic flagged floors, beams, aga and campfire. We hung our tartan bunting from the rafters and accessorised with antlers, logs, Harris tweed, fur throws, herringbone blankets and fairisle.
We decorated tables with thistles, heather, ferns and scented roses, arranged with moss on wood slices. Walls were decked with antlers, a large stags head, photos of the mountains. The wedding cake stood on a slice of cedar next to decanters of whisky. Behind the cake, a ‘trophy wall’ displayed mis-matched, framed photographs of the couple, at their pre-wedding shoot in the woods. With candles and fire lit, as dusk fell, we were in the highlands!
