Jute Jam and Journalism - The Broons had a great day at the wonderful Hill of Tarvit Mansion

Hill of Tarvit is a stunning National Trust Property just outside Cupar. With a 9 hole hickory golf course, lovely grounds and a beautifully maintained house, the house and its surrounds played a big part in Emma's childhood. She grew up riding in the lanes, walking with family, enjoying fete weekends - and when Emma and Chris chose it as the venue for their wedding (along with a marquee), Emma felt like she was coming home.

Now living in Dundee, my lovely lovely couple were determined to do things their own creative way. The theme of jute, jam and journalism, combined with the married name of Brown, leant itself to the really special touches that made the day very true to them - the Broons photograph booth was genius; the hessian and the books and the Broons Annuals made everyone chuckle; the flowers and wreaths were stunning; the wedding cake was not exactly a cake, but rather hundreds of absolutely delicious strawberry danish pastries handmade by local baker Fisher and Donaldson - we stacked them on my trusty ladder of love for impact:  and if ever a day reflected the hours of care and attention and artistry that went into it, this one certainly did. 

Huge congratulations to Chris and Emma. We loved being able to enter into the spirit of your day with tin buckets and jute accessories. Thankyou Thankyou Thankyou!
