Liza and Oliver's Wedding at Loch Awe & Dalavich Village Hall, Argyll & Bute

October 01, 2011

Bride and bridesmaids Liza and Oliver were married in a splendid wedding in Dalavich in Argyll and Bute. The small village was created to service the forestry industry in 1952 and the sense of community that grew from its creation is still strong today.

All the villagers helped in making this wedding a success; from the decorations in the village hall to the food and entertainment. It really made the ceremony, on the banks of Loch Awe, a special occasion.

Liza was smiling for every second of the day and it lit the banks of Loch Awe with a happy glow, which all the guests enjoyed.

This was a handfasting ceremony so, after the vows had been said, the couple's hands were tied together before they leapt over willow branches, symbolising their leap into married life.

The evening entertainment took place in the village hall where one of the special touches was a wishing tree. Large branches of a tree had been erected in the hall and guests could make a wish for the new couple and tie it to a branch for them to read after their wedding. It was a lovely sentiment to be able to offer as guests and just one of the many, many sweet things about this wedding.

Congratulations, Liza and Oliver.
