In the summer of 2017, Lily Special Events returned to the beautiful Kintyre peninsula to dress the wedding of Alison and Kenneth. The transformation of the venues was created using a wide range of hire products including chair covers, centrepieces, table decor, aisle decor and other rental products.
The ceremony took place in the newly renovated Campbeltown Town Hall. This little gem dates back to 1760 and is perfectly positioned in the heart of the town. If you haven’t been to this part of the country, we would highly recommend a visit!
The grand hall with it’s neutral decor, high ceilings, large windows and mood lighting, is the perfect space for a wedding. We added to this venue with our white chair covers, pale silver organza bows, white aisle runner, scatter petals and potted bay trees decorated with fairy lights and ribbon.
After the ceremony, the guests were then taken out into the countryside for the wedding reception at the unique Machrihanish Airbase. The former Royal Air Force station makes an unforgettable location for your special day.
We decorated the main event space with our white chair covers and pale silver organza bows, which completely transformed the room. We dressed the tables with matching pale silver organza table runners, mirror plates, large hurricane vases with ivory petals and tall pillar candles and complete the table decor with tealight holders with candles. The top table was dressed to match, using our mini hurricane vases, table runners, tealight holders with candles and our vintage white Mr and Mrs sign. The couple added their own personal touch throughout the venue with beautiful little details and one in particular which stood out was the floor standing table plan tree. The venue looked as beautiful as it’s surroundings.
During our time in Kintyre, we stayed at the highly recommended Argyll Hotel, which is situated on the beach of Bellochantuy. The rooms are lovely and homely, the owners could not make you feel more welcome, not to mention their food being delicious! With the hotel being dog friendly, we took our springer spaniel, Millie, along with us. She loved running wild on the sand and getting acquainted with the inhouse dalmations. It was the perfect location for us travelling to and from the wedding venues. During our spare time, we enjoyed long walks along the beach and admiring the stunning sunset from the hotel’s conservatory.
As well as the seaside, Kintyre offers beautiful countryside. It’s fantastic to spend some time in nature. We loved relaxing when we weren’t busy transforming venues and on wedding duties. We can’t wait to return next year!
Congratulations to the lovely Mr and Mrs Galbraith, we wish you a long and happy future together and thanks again for choosing us to dress the venues for your wedding!
