“Nothing Compares to Ingliston”

The lovely Lesley & Allan recently got married here at Ingliston. Let’s hear what Lesley had to say about her big day.

Tell us about the proposal?

We had been together 5 years before Allan finally plucked up the courage to ask me to marry him. He booked a romantic break to Edinburgh (which is my favourite place in the world), as part of my Christmas. He had grand plans to propose at the castle but ended up so nervous that he popped the question as soon as we checked into our hotel room! I loved that it meant we got to spend the whole weekend in the capital celebrating as a newly engaged couple.

Why did you choose Ingliston for your special day?
My mum visited Ingliston for lunch and had told me that I HAD to get married there. And that was before we were even engaged! We went to a few open days but nothing compared to Ingliston. I just fell in love with the Connemara suite and from all the venues we visited, it was the only one my husband liked. We booked the following week.

What was your favourite part of the day?
It is so hard to choose a favourite part of the day because the whole day was perfect! If I had to choose one though it would have to be the part I had feared throughout the whole planning process… walking down the aisle. Nothing in the world prepares you for the feeling. The whole room was set perfectly and just how I imagined. All stress and nerves had vanished and all I could see was my husband to be and our kids at the bottom of the aisle. I just couldn’t wait to become Mrs McWilliams!
