My new husband and I live in Los Angeles, and had never been to Scotland, but we wanted to get married in a castle, and California is seriously lacking in the castle department! We found a beautiful castle about 30 minutes south of Edinburgh, called Dalhousie Castle. About halfway through planning, I decided we needed a wedding coordinator. Lisa Bauer of Tartan Weddings could not have been more perfect! It turns out she was married in the same castle and walked down the aisle to the same Pixies song! How crazy is that? Lisa is Scottish, and was able to help us navigate the world of weddings in the UK. How much do we tip (if at all)? Why is the meal called a Wedding Breakfast when it’s served at night? What do we need to know when we get there? What should we see and do in Edinburgh? She helped us with all of these questions, and she even went to do the meet and greet with the castle staff to go over all of the tiny details, since we couldn’t afford to fly to Scotland to do that. She Skyped us from the castle and sent video so we could see what the rooms looked like and the chapel where we’d be walking down the aisle, etc. The wedding turned out to be amazing, and our guests were wowed. All of our friends who were like “Why Scotland? Why not Hawaii?” were schooled once they saw the epic, fairytale-esque photos! You’re a life-saver. Thank you Lisa
