We were delighted that Emma and Tim chose Roulotte Retreat for their Wedding as they had previously stayed with us at Roulotte Retreat in Horseshoe Cottage and in our Roulottes over the years with their daughter Summer. It was an absolute pleasure for us to host their wedding and we enjoyed the ambience they created with their beautiful Peacock coloured theme which was shown in the buttonholes, the archway, table decorations, and the bridesmaids dresses and converses! It was a real treat to plan and work alongside Emma who is incredibly talented, sourcing and creating all her decorations as she has a great eye for detail. We loved that Emma and Tim wished to have local produce and we sourced local cheeses, real ale which was set up ‘bar-style’ on the deck with never-ending kegs, and their amazing wedding cakes at nearby suppliers. The wedding feast was an organic banquet from a local food truck too, served ‘festival style’ so that guests could revisit the truck for seconds and thirds in all courses! Beatrix the vintage ice-cream bicycle served up all Emma and Tim’s favourite flavours.
Very touching moments at the wedding included a promenade up through the meadow after the ceremony on the deck performed by Humanist Celebrant, Laura to the lochan where Emma and Tim and members of their family floated candlelit lotuses created by an artist friend.
Live music was fantastic and we were delighted to be invited to join in - a great day!
A great family and friends wedding with everyone contributing to the artwork and decoration. Uncle and Aunt were the most amazing photographers and Brother was the official hairdresser. Hats off to Emma’s Dad who did the most amazing job of the recycling!
“We honestly don’t know where to start to try and describe how amazing our Wedding was at Roulotte Retreat. After tons of meticulous planning and hours of hand making lots of little details, Avril and Alan gave us complete free rein to decorate and create the environment that we wanted for our Wedding.
Avril helped us source lots of local produce as we tried to keep all our food and drinks as local to Roulotte Retreat as possible. Avril was in contact with us all the time running up to the Wedding which made the planning process so easy Our Ceremony was stunning, the whole thing very relaxed. It was conducted by Humanist Laura who made our Ceremony very personal. All our guests have said it was a Wedding they will never forget.
We loved every second of our Wedding and we cannot thank Avril and Alan enough for all their help and support.
An amazing place and a dream location for anyone wishing an alternative and relaxed Wedding, that will certainly be unforgettable.”
Emma, Tim and Summer
