The wedding of Lynn & Murray

Lynn and Murray Sime

Lynn and Murray chose to celebrate their big day with us. Read on to find out more about their love story and how Moness came to be their perfect venue choice.

How did you meet?

We worked together for a number of years before taking the plunge romantically so although we can’t claim love at first sight, we got there in the end! 

Tell us about the proposal?

Murray had been planning to propose for a while and had bought an engagement ring six months beforehand. We went on a trip to the Lake District and Murray planned to propose at the harbour in the town we were staying in, however the weather had other ideas! It was so windy, there was nowhere for him to propose without risking the ring blowing away.  So, in the end he proposed in our hotel room, but it was still a huge surprise and was just a perfect moment just the two of us. 

Why did you choose Moness as your wedding venue? 

Moness was actually the first venue we came to see. Murray had suggested it as his grandad is from Aberfeldy and used to work at the nearby distillery. We came up to visit with my mum and we loved it from the first moment and booked the very same day. We knew we wanted somewhere beautiful, that had lots of accommodation for our guests and Moness ticked all the boxes.

Tell us about your wedding day at Moness?

Our day was incredible....

Our theme we kept quite rustic and it worked beautifully with the venue. We chose lots of pink and purple flowers to tie in with the hunter green bridesmaid dresses and chair sashes. The marquee looked simply stunning, our suppliers did an amazing job and the team at Moness made it all look incredible. 

We both had the best wedding day we could have imagined, everything went perfectly, from the ceremony, to the food to the evening reception. We had so many comments on the venue, and the food, which was just sensational. The morning for us both was so relaxed and nothing was too much work, we were running a little bit late and again nothing was a hassle, which really made me feel more relaxed.

How did the team at Moness play a part in your special day?

The team have always been amazing. We had to postpone our wedding a few times due to covid and that meant that we experienced a change in the team who we were dealing with but that was never reflected in the communication we received or how the team treated us. We feel incredibly lucky to have dealt with the most helpful and professional team who really helped us to make the day as seamless as it was. We cannot thank Kelly, Josh, Kirsty and the team enough!

What was your most memorable moment?

Finally getting to say ‘I do’ with our family and friends around us. It was a long 2 years of waiting to get married and there were times that we thought it would never happen due to covid restrictions. We got to have the day we planned with no restrictions and it was just the best day! 

What advice would you offer other couples in the run up to their wedding day?

Don't sweat the small stuff. It's so easy to get bogged down with the tiny details but you will not care about them on your day. Oh and remember to take it all in, your wedding day is the quickest day of your life, so take the time to enjoy it. We wish we could do it all over again.
