Scottish Weddings in Brisbane
Bluebonnet Tartan Wedding Ceremonies are bespoke
contemporary ceremonies in the Scottish tradition. Each
ceremony is an intricate blend of ancient Highland
tradition, familiar liturgy, and a modern approach to
integrating the old with the new.
While having a piper and having the men wearing the kilt
is often regarded to be the totality of what is required
for a wedding to be “Scottish”, there are so many more
possibilities for achieving an authentic celebration of
Your ceremony can incorporate a range of wonderful
traditions that celebrate the Scottish ancestry of
either of the marrying couple. Nonetheless, a Bluebonnet
Tartan Wedding is not just a reflection of the past. In
the 21st century your Tartan Wedding can be infused with
your personal style.
And, you can have a Tartan Wedding without getting
. So if you are a couple who
has married overseas or in a quiet legal ceremony, you
can have still have the full Scottish wedding to
celebrate your relationship.
There is a lot more to Bluebonnet Tartan Weddings than
to the average Australian wedding, in particular, much
greater involvement of the families and the guests,
together with a number of rituals that emphasise that a
marriage is more than the joining of two people.
Starting the ceremony in the traditional Scottish way
heightens the emotion for everyone and provides
opportunities for happy and natural photos that capture
that emotion.. Including Scottish poetry, blessings, and
other readings ensures that the ceremony is Scottish
through and through.
I am well-experienced in the many traditional rituals
that may be included in the ceremony.
- Handfasting Scottish-style using a tartan band or
- The sashing of the bride is the moment when the
bride is welcomed into the groom’s family and clan.
- The presentation by the bride's family sword to
the groom is likewise is a very special moment.
- Other rituals such as the washing and blessing of
the rings and jumping the besom can also be included
in the ceremony
- And if there are going to be children among the
guests, you might like to have the traditional
scramble at the end of the ceremony.
