Getting tO GLENTRUIM
We will organise busses xxxx
The dress code is Cocktail Attire, so suits for men and dresses for women (we had to Google it as well…!) - or Highland dress.
The weather should be around 15-18 degrees during the day and 5-10 degrees at night, depending on the sun. The ceremony and dinner will take place indoors, but the drinks reception will hopefully be on the front lawn - weather permitting. We recommend bringing a layer to stay warm. We’ll also provide umbrellas in case the Scottish weather wishes to greet you.
Having you spend they day with us is the perfect gift. We ask for nothing more!
2:30pm - Guests arrive
Please join us in XXX at Glentruim Estate for tea & coffee before the ceremony. We’ll arrange cars/buses to collect guests staying in hotels in Newtonmore.
3:00pm - Ceremony
The ceremony will take place in a small lodge, located on the grounds of Glentruim Estate. It is a short walk through the gardens on a gravel path (maybe not the best for stilettos!)
3:30pm - Reception
The best part! Drinks and canapés will be served in the gardens of Glentruim Estate, where we’ll also have some lawn games set up. We’ll be off taking some photos in the grounds with our lovely photographer Hayley, but you can bet that we won’t be away from the snacks for too long.
5:00pm - Speeches
From 5pm we’ll slowly start moving into Glentruim’s Orangery, where we will have tables set up for dinner. Guests are invited to take their seats for speeches from the Father of the Bride (Diederik), the Father of the Groom (Matt), the Best Man (Nicky) and the Maid of Honour (Zuzu). Don’t worry, there will be wine & canapés on the table.
6:00pm - Dinner
Dinner will be served as a series of sharing platters, catered by The Pantry from Edinburgh! Most dishes are vegetarian or pescetarian, but don’t worry meat eaters - there will be short ribs as a main course. Wine & be will be provided, but head over to Glentruim’s bar for something a bit stronger.
8:00pm until late - Sparklers, cheese & dessert!
After dinner we’ll all wrap up and head outside to take some fun sparkler photos around the fire pits, and set off sky lanterns. A cheese & dessert buffet will be set up, and whisky will flow late into the night.
We’ve hired the entire estate so we can stay as late as we like! Cars/busses will take guests back to their hotels in Newtonmore from 11:30-12:30pm.
