Scottish Weddings in Brisbane
When you marry in a Bluebonnet Tartan Wedding
is not just a reflection or replication of the
past. It's the 21st century, and as much as we all
we will create a ceremony that
takes a very modern approach to integrating the old with
the new. It's not just about kilts and bagpipe music!
There are so many more possibilities. The end result
will be an intricate blend of ancient Scottish wedding
tradition and familiar liturgy with a modern sensibility
that fits perfectly into a Brisbane wedding.
There are many traditions to choose from to celebrate
your links with Scotland. Your Bluebonnet Tartan Wedding
can be infused with your personal style. You can even
have a fusion wedding, incorporating traditions from
There's a lot to a Bluebonnet Tartan
In fact, a lot more than there is to the average
A Bluebonnet Tartan Wedding is way more than "talking
heads". It is different, from beginning to end, while
still being familiar. Plenty to see. Your photographer
will love it just as much as your guests will and the
photos will be stunning.
Your ceremony will be authentic
Did I mention that my knowledge of Scottish wedding
traditions comes from both my Scottish heritage and my
deep and personal understanding of Scottish wedding
traditions and that I'm pretty expert when it comes to
Scottish-style using a tartan band or ribbon.

- The sharing of the quaich
- Other, less well-known ceremony inclusions?
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.
Your ceremony will be personal and
unique to the two of you
I differentiate between personal and personalised. Your
Bluebonnet Tartan Wedding goes way before the
personalisation you get when you buy a car. You know -
everyone recognises the car for it for what it is (make
and model), all you've been able to do to put your
personal stamp on it is choose the colour, choose a few
internal features from a very limited list of options,
maybe spring for slightly fancier wheels and perhaps add
a racing stripe down the sides.
Your wedding ceremony will be recognisably Scottish. But
also recognisably you. It will be personal.
What about the legals?
As your celebrant, I take care of all the legal
requirements - both the paperwork and registering your
marriage after the ceremony.
At this moment there are only
three things you need to know
You can have a Bluebonnet Tartan wedding without getting
legally married! So, if you got married quietly
thanks to the pandemic, and now want the big bash, or
you got married overseas and want to do it all over
again for friends and loved ones here in Australia .
Absolutely! We can do this.
