The Weir’s

Ross and Nicola Weir are high school sweethearts who met in 2009 at Grangemouth Stadium when they were only twelve years old. Over the next 10 years they grew up together and their relationship grew from strength to strength.

On the 25th of June, on their 10th anniversary, with the view of Loch Lomond in the background, Ross got down on one knee and held open a Tiffany box.

Their first step in the wedding planning process was to secure their venue and Balbirnie House in Glenrothes blew the couple away. It was the modern vintage décor that Nicola always had her heart set on. The couple set their date for Saturday 2nd July 2022.

The Suppliers

Nicola gushes, “Each and every one of our suppliers was incredible and made our day everything we ever dreamed of.” They did their best to use as many local suppliers as possible.


Their celebrant was Sheila Scobbie from the Humanist Society Scotland. The couple wanted a personal ceremony that would be both relaxed and funny. Sheila did just that and the ceremony was everything the couple wanted.

Mother-of-the-Bride & Groom Outfits

Both the Mother of the Bride and the Mother of the Groom got their gorgeous outfits from Catwalk in Falkirk. They both loved every minute of trying on dresses for the big day and found the service to be second to none. Nicola, “I thought their outfits complimented each other perfectly and both looked breathtaking.”

Bridemaids’ Dresses

For the bridesmaids’ dresses, Nicola’s bride squad had a great experience at Olivia Cameron. She says, “I knew I wanted the bridesmaids to be in silk but had originally thought the colour was going to be blush pink. However, while trying on the sample dresses the Tuscan Gold won everybody over. My golden girls looked incredibly glamorous.”

Hair and Makeup

“It was so special to have my sister Naomi Milne (LK Glam, Larbert) do my wedding hair and cousin Justine Weir (Tweedie & Marshall, Falkirk) do the bridesmaid’s hair. Laura Ann Smith (Smiths Hairdressing, Bonnybridge) was their other hairdresser on the day. They were all both so talented at what they do and made us all look and feel amazing.”

Finally, their Make Up Artists Tyler Lawless MUA and Rachel Wilcox MUA were a big part of their wedding morning. They joined the morning celebrations and had Nicola and her bridesmaids looking and feeling so glamorous.

“It was the most incredible day of our lives with all our amazing friends and family – memories to last a lifetime.”
