Beautiful Pittodrie House Wedding in Autumn


Pittodrie House weddings are by far one of my most popular jobs, especially in autumn. Doug and I even considered staying a couple nights as we were there 6 times throughout September and October and luckily so. Chapel of Garioch's Pittodrie house grounds are nothing short of spectacular at that time of year with all the rich colours. They'd probably seen enough of us I thought so I spared them that torture! Fun times though as I would arrive in the morning only to see my couples from the previous day checking out and getting a good catch up on how the party ended.

Managing to catch up with Rachel and Greig I asked them a few questions and requested any tips that might help you on your way.

Venue and Inspiration

"Pittodrie house hotel was amazing, the staff made the day flow so well and kept us both right, I didn’t have to worry! I got to relax and enjoy my day. The minute we picked Pittodrie House I knew I didn’t need to do much as the venue is beautiful! So my inspiration was simple but beautiful! Also my favourite colour is purple so that was in there"ouple of times!

"Well the biggest advice would be don’t worry, the people who are helping make your day special do it all the time. They know what they are doing! Also take time to look around and see everyone enjoy themselves, you won’t manage to talk to everyone but don’t worry! That's why we did a line up for this reason and I’m so grateful we did."

How did you Find the Photography Experience?

"Personally I don’t think I will ever tire of my guests telling me that they just loved the photographers - they honestly felt like guests! We're both not huge fans of getting our pics taken but going away and getting couple photos was so chilled, it wasn’t awkward at all! From our morning prep it was all fun and games and so accommodating. Really honestly we couldn’t/wouldn’t have any other photographers to capture any life events!"

Favourite Pittodrie House Wedding Pics

"No way I can pick my favourite photo, but I have a few! The line up confetti shot of us twirling with Bennachie behind us is a fav. But also the bridal party and confetti shots, the picture of us kissing with the sunset. It’s SO hard to choose!"

"Myself and Grieg can't thank both of you enough for being part of our big day"

Favourite Moments From Your Pittodrie House Wedding?

'Confetti line up - It was so much fun and everyone understood the assignment! Evening Time- everyone was just having so much fun dancing and singing! Bridal squad photos with confetti - was so original and so much fun!'

Absolutely loved hearing this as its one of our favourite things to organise, there's just so much joy, action and colour in them. Definitely one of the best pic opportunities of the day.

What did you Gift Your Bridal Party?

Bride squad girls got their jewellery from Etsy, personalised flip flops, pjs and thank you cards. Grieg and the boys got their kilt pins from kilts wi hae, they also had personalised pendants from Etsy of family members who are no longer with us - which was a surprise to the groom also!


With Favours we did a little candle and a match box that said ‘our love is a match’ as we met on Tinder! Our centre pieces were gin bottles because that’s our favourite drink!

Any funny wedding stories or disasters?

"My toenail coming off and being glued back on! Rufus surprise big boy appearance and people thinking my usher forgot the rings. Also our walk in song for the reception didn’t play!"

Rachel and Greig weren't alone with the music not playing, there's a common theme with this one. Someone always seems to have the pressure of this and so many things can go wrong with a phone, Batteries, Wi-fi etc. Maybe get them to do a few practices and make sure their phones are juiced up.

What was the Hardest Part of Planning?

"Covid for sure was the hardest part and you just didn’t know what to expect but it was out of our control. Although we just went with it and we’re lucky to get our original day! Hmm, the fact that Greig helped me for about 10% of our Pittodrie House Wedding planning haha!"

Easily the most common answer for this recently but hopefully all you upcoming couples won't have to worry too much about this. Fingers crossed!

How were Your Suppliers

"Flowers, I don’t know ANYTHING about flowers! Basically I gave my florist my theme and left her to it and the flowers were amazing!!My hairdresser was one of my closest friends and I’m so grateful she was doing my hair. She did all the girls hair whilst getting to be a guest as well!"
