ENSURING YOUR WEDDING IS ON TREND AT BROXMOUTH PARK, DUNBAR
Today we’re speaking with a wedding expert Oskar Gilchrist-Grodnicki at Broxmouth Park located in the picturesque coast of East Lothian overseeing North Sea and over 150 acres of exclusive parkland, woodland and loch. Both, Oskar and Broxmouth Park make the perfect combination for your fairy tale wedding as certified by many awards from Scottish VOWS Awards, Bridebook and Scottish Hotel Awards between them. Their reputation truly speaks volumes.
Let’s begin the exciting journey of planning a wedding on trend at Broxmouth Park!
It is expected that we will continue observing the trend of bringing the outdoors in, creative and sustainable catering arrangements, diversifying your wedding party and the return of Princess-like wedding dresses.
Firstly, one of the most spoken about features of every year is the chosen colour of the year and this time we’re going back to nature with ‘tranquil dawn’ – very much in-keeping with the trend of bringing the outdoors in and this is why you simply couldn’t pick a better venue than Broxmouth Park. Broxmouth estate spans across 150 acres of private parkland where you can enjoy a truly breath-taking views of swans gliding on our loch and if you’re lucky enough you might even catch a glimpse of the dear roaming amongst the woodlands. Many of our wedding couple also host their ceremonies under one of the most magnificent trees on the estate – you couldn’t get a better location for your wedding!
Wedding flowers are becoming a little more informal and rough around the edges to also show the connection with true nature. Sustainability will be a big factor in any wedding, so you should prepare for a lot more botanical, leafy greens and foliage. The beautiful setting of our estate often ties in to the natural look many couples are now looking for:
On the subject of sustainability, I don’t think it will be a surprise to anyone that our menus will see a lot more vegan influence. Interestingly our tastes and vegan flavours changed so much that you might be surprised at how many more of your guests will opt in for the vegan option on their pre-order in the coming year. Interestingly, at Broxmouth, we pride ourselves on providing only the very highest levels of service and therefore we will not ask for menu pre-orders in advance of your wedding. Your guests will have the comfort of selecting their choices on the day. Isn’t this just amazing?
Following on from the subject of catering, the trend for more informal dining options will prevail. According to the wedding market surveys, 3 in 10 couples will no longer choose a traditional sit-down meal for their wedding. A lot of weddings are now thinking of beginning their meal in a standing reception setup with Italian-style grazing stations, where guests can mingle with their small plate and sample their preferred choices of food as they please. This is a very effective way not to only impress your guests and give them choice, but to also encourage your guests to engage in conversation and is also a great ice breaker. This will quite often still be followed by a procession to a seated main course and family-style service of the desert with a choice of cakes and sweet delicacies served at the table. At Broxmouth, we can help you plan your perfect menu with the guidance of our Executive Chef who trained at Gleneagles and IFEX International. He and his team can tailor make a menu just for you, providing a personal service from beginning to end.
Finally, you might even make it onto YouTube with the growth in streamed proposals on social media platforms. Why not try out our most romantic Lodge on the Loch for this special occasion:
All in all, according to many market trends, wedding magazines and influencers, these are just some of the many trends that are coming your way, so don’t be shy to put your own stamp on your wedding plans, as many couples are now opting to ditch the tradition and move towards a more diverse 21st century style of wedding, which we can definitely help you put together at Broxmouth Park.
Good luck to you all in your upcoming wedding plans and check out a little teaser trailer of what you can expect from Broxmouth Park.
