Bluebonnet Tartan Weddings
Contemporary Weddings in the Scottish Tradition
by Jennifer Cram, Authorised Marriage Celebrant, Brisbane

Choosing to have a wedding in the Scottish Tradition ensures that your guests will have plenty to delight both the eye and the ear, together with time-honoured traditions that go to the heart of what a great wedding ceremony is a celebration of the joining of two people, two families and pride in culture.

NB Though many of the traditions specify bride and groom, Where the marrying couple is two brides or two grooms, we adapt accordingly

The best  weddings tell stories. Your heritage is an essential and often incredible fascinating and moving part of your story. I help you to celebrate your Scottish heritage by including Scottish wedding traditions in your marriage ceremony for a ceremony that is an intricate blend of ancient Highland tradition, familiar liturgy and a modern approach to integrating the old with the new.

The ceremony will not be solely a  reflection of the past. It will resonate to your story, be a feast for both eyes and ears,  and infused with your personal style.

Tartan
(new page added)
Your wedding ceremony can feature tartan in various ways - from what you wear to a tartan ribbon or band used in a handfasting ritual. The men do not have to wear the kilt - tartan trews are fantastic too, as are the growing range of jackets, waistcoats (vests) and even full suits available in many tartans. Or they can opt for a more understated expression in clan tartan socks with business suits or formal evening dress.

You are VERY good at what you do Jen, and you have such a wonderful and warm personality....so it is NO wonder that you get rated so highly. Love your work, and look forward to working with you again soon - - Piper Joe McGhee
 
Everyone thought you did a fantastic job and set the scene perfectly. We thought your way of creating a ceremony was brilliant. We were  extremely happy at how the whole ceremony went. It was loving and thoughtful. The atmosphere that was set was relaxing and fun. It was exactly what we were looking for our ceremony to be. - Catriona and Mark who held their tartan wedding at the Grand View Hotel. Mark wore the Australian Dress Tartan, and their wee son was resplendent in his own kilt and Prince Charlie Jacket

Dear Jenny, Thank you so much for composing and conducting our wedding ceremony. We've just got the DVD back and re-lived the experience. It was perfect. We were so happy to meet you after struggling to find the celebrant for us. From briefing us about the legal requirements, the surveys, drafting, patience with our motley crew at the rehearsal, calm confidence and charisma on the day through to your name-changing instructions, we enjoyed working with you and were in good hands! Thank you - Rowan and Michael, who married in a chapel ceremony that incorporated their Scottish heritage and included family members. Photo courtesy of Natalie McComas

Jenny, Thank you so much for yesterday. It was a perfect day and I had so much fun. Everything was just so wonderful and many guests commented on the ceremony and how it fit us perfectly. Thank you for listening to us about what we wanted and delivering it to a tee! - Glenys who married Gary beneath 300 year old Moreton Bay Figs at Old Petrie Town. Gary and his groomsmen wore the Prince Charlie Jacket.  Glynis and her bridesmaids carried bouquets of Australian Native Flowers whose muted tones toned fabulously with the kilts
