    Default Miss Martin/ Mrs Muldoons wedding report.....25.7.13 (The Chartroom...Kip Marina)

    Hi everyone,

    Sorry it's been a while..... my laptop charger broke so I've only been able to access from my phone. We had an amazing day, I miss it so much and would LOVE to do it all again....I'm so jealous of all of you that still have to do it!

    Our pics are in the editing process, same with the Dvd, but we've had a sneek peek and there's been 40 million pics added onto facebook, so I'll try a wee mixture


    The day before

    We had so much to do...... it all seemed a bit chaotic. We were running about and stress levels were through the roof....we had tried to make this day as easy going but it just didnt happen! I spent ages in the morning packing clothes for us all, getting the wedding stuff ready for the car, getting gift bags ready. In hindsight I should have done it all earlier in the week but we had just been so busy!

    We piled everything in the car (we have a decent size boot and we struggled)....shot off to Bridge of weir, via John MacKay Jewellers to pick up my rings (that we had totally forgotten about and lost the reciept for). Once in Bridge of Weir, I met my MOH, said goodbye to H2B and the kids and went and picked up my dress. After that it was down to Greenock to pick up more boxes from my MOH's house, we checked into the hotel and took stuff up...then headed down to the Chartroom (Kip Marina) to set up some stuff.

    It was an absolutely gorgeous day...the sun was splitting and when I walked into the room, Modern Love Events had already been down and set everything up. I was blown away and totally loved all of it....it was exactly like i'd imagined it. (Well, possibly better)

    We had decided to set up the favours and stuff ourselves, as I had different favours for different ages..,,, Older ladies got Yankee Candles, while the younger ones got Mini Bourjois make up, with an ice cream lip balm. The men got scratch cards, kiddies had goody bags and the babies got little chick/egg toys.

    By the time we had all this done, it was after 7pm and I just wanted to relax....but nope! I realised I had forgot my earrings, didn't pack any pyjamas, hadn't bought a guest book. So we grabbed a quick chippy in the car and drove up to Tesco for a mad dash, then FINALLY got back to the hotel.

    My other half had been a complete stress ball for the few days before. Him and my son had went to stay at his mum's the night before, so I had asked him to call me when he was feeling calm and relaxed. By the time we were finished at the Chartroom, he had calmed down and I finally started to feel like I was getting married the next day.

    We went to the bar and got a drink each and sat outside in the sun, my cousin (who I hadn't seen for years) came down with his girlfriend....I'd never met her before so he wanted us to meet before the wedding and I'm so glad I did, she was lovely and thinking back, if I hadn't done it, I wouldn't really have got to know her at the wedding.

    We only had one drink each, but sat gabbing until about 10pm, then my cousin left and we headed upstairs. We sat and had a good chat.... meanwhile my phone was going crazy with texts and tweets. We sat up until about midnight and decided to call it a day.......

    The wedding morning

    I woke up about 7.30am....which is not bad for the wedding morning I might say! My MOH was staying with me, so I tried to tiptoe about, but she was already awake. I have to admit...the butterflies came at this point! I had a look outside and it was raining lightly....but I wasn't too fussed. We went down for breakfast and I had to force myself to eat....ended up I had a roll with bacon and potato scone...which is also quite good going for the wedding morning! We were eating and ended up my other half rang....so I spoke to him for a bit then my son burst onto the phone...he was so excited! We had bought him a camera as a wedding gift and Stevie (My husband) had given him it the night before so he could get shown how to use it. He was so happy and kept telling me he loved me and couldnt wait... this was the first time I felt like I was going to well up!

    We still didn't have a guest book, so we jumped into Greenock town centre for the shops opening. By this time it was pouring down. We were in Boots and my MOH was buying some perfume, when she told the lady serving I was getting married...So she gave me a wedding present. It was a lovely wee box with a Dior perfume sample and lipstick. So so nice of her. We picked up a guest book and headed back to the hotel for showers.

    About 10.30am my MOH went out to pick up my other bridesmaid and my niece who was a flowergirl. My mum had been at a hairdresser round the corner and had my wee girl with her. She had said she was starting to get bored, so she brought her up to the hotel room. She wasn't half excited! She was bouncing about the hotel room like a lunatic....So glad it was a decent size.

    About 11am Craig Alexander-Wilson arrived to do our make up and it was all go from there.....he did my mums first so that she could go up home and get dressed. Shortly afterwards Lidia Attino arrived for hair. All I can say is....what a LAUGH we had, we were gutting ourselves at the 2 of them.

    At this point, I looked out the window to the gardens outside and seen Stevie! The had decided to sit out the back for a while as they were getting ready at the hotel (Him,my son and one of the best men). He didnt know at first that we could see him as he didn't realise that was where our room looked onto. But after talking to him later, he said the sound coming from our room was something else..... all he could hear was Ibiza songs being sang....had to break it to him it was the hairdresser!

    Craig from McBeth photography arrived at 1pm, along with one of the guys from Mallard productions (our video company) to shoot bridal preparations. This all went by in a whizz. To be honest, I had been really nervous about this part, especially the video, but we hardly noticed, we were laughing so much. At one point we were all doing 'Selfies'..... too too funny....

    Eventually all the beauty side of things came to an end and it was just us and the flowergirls left. We took about an hour to get into our dresses (Honestly, it takes this long!. My family that were travelling in the cars arrived downstairs so we sent the flowergirls down, the Bridesmaids went to put stuff in their cars, so I was just left alone in my wedding dress for about 10 mins.

    This point was good....I looked in the mirror at myself and thought 'This is what you look like as a bride...'....all the days of planning, this was it all together. I had a wee swish about in my dress and got used to it.

    The bridesmaids came up and we had our first drink of the day. My MIL had sent down a bottle of fizz for us. So we had a toast. I gulped mines down quickly and decided I wanted to go. So we set off out the room. At this point my MOH decided to fiddle a bit with her jewellery and stuff and I had to be *slightly bridezilla* and say to her that I HAD to leave at that point. I had a spiral staircase to walk down and my bridesmaid asked if I wanted help, I said yes and raced down the stairs...she had to say 'Lorraine, slow down, your going too fast for me!'...I was on a mission!

    Got downstairs and seen my dad, he never gives compliments or kisses etc, but he came up to me and told me I looked lovely and gave me a kiss and a cuddle My mum is exactly the same and she ran up and hugged me and told me I looked lovely. I have to say....everyone looked so smart, the kilts really suited my dad and brother and my mum was looking fantastic.


    The cars were waiting, I thought we had time for a drink downstairs, but was told it was 2.55pm, the ceremony started at 3pm. At this point the rain was coming on, so my brother advised to get in the car. We didnt hire cars, just called in a few favours from friends. My brothers workmate has a brand new mercedes, so he volunteered to take me. Honestly....I could NOT have been happier. He had the car all set up like a wedding car, ribbons, flowers in the back, bubbly for me and my dad....I can't believe the effort he put in.

    We decided 'Its fashionable for the bride to be late' and to take the scenic route.....so off we set....AND THEN...this started....

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fseZl3lIvfo

    Greenocks worst flash flood in 20 years.....on our wedding day!!!!


    Oh yes....and this also happened.......

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-23458957

    But....we got there....and strangely enough.....I remained very calm throughout it all. When we got to the Chartroom, we drove up beside it, to be told I wouldn't be able to walk around the side as it was all flooded. So we had to drive to the bottom of a path and have the car reverse up. At this point it was bit crazy, with people with umbrella's, camera's, shouts of 'grab the dress'

    But I was calm again...my brother reports that someone was trying to hold my dress up at this point....but I was on full steam ahead....I just wanted in there!

    I'll be honest and say I can't really remember much of the next few minutes. I was met with one of the best men, Gerrie Douglas-Scott who was our celebrant and a flurry of other people. I got to see my son at this point who was looking particularly handsome!

    Alan from the Chartroom asked if we were ready to go....I mustve said yes?? and the rest of the party were off..... here's my son Glen walking down the aisle......

    Time to get another part in before I have to make dinner for the kids!

    This is the music I walked down to.......we love it. Spiritualised -Ladies and Gentleman we are floating in space (Elvis version)

    I remember my cousin smiling away as she was at the back and could see me. I also remember the first part of the chorus coming in and just saying to my dad 'Go'.... at this point all I remember is thinking 'Look at Stevie'. He was at the bottom of the aisle, but was facing up the way, as the aisle sort of curved at the bottom. So I kept fixated on him.

    The rest of it was all a blur to be honest....I can remember his eyes all looking bloodshot/gunked up, so wiping them. If my memories serves me right, the ceremony lasted 2 minutes....but I know this wasn't the case and it was probably more around 30 mins. I just remember hearing people sniffing all around me..... We laughed so much as well.

    I also remember putting on the rings....Stevie seemed so confident, but his hands were shaking, so I held his took his hand to steady him...very unlike him!

    We walked back up the aisle....for some reason our music didn't work, but we weren't caring by this point. Alan got the 2 of us a glass of champagne (We needed it) and Craig told us he was going to gather everyone outside for a group picture as the sun had come out.

    We walked out with the bridal party and everyone was standing on the grass waiting on us.....at this point some people started going 'You can't walk on that grass, its soaking...your dress!'...But I was just like, 'Ach, i'll only wear it once!'....but...the grass was dry and it was lovely! So floods and lightning didn't affect our day...... Here's some more pics.

    Me and my husband

    My flowers received quite a lot of attention on the day, I really didn't want to pay for real flowers as I knew they would just die and can be costly. So I looked into alternatives....

    My bridesmaids flowers, Flowergirls bouquets and buttonholes were all Origami flowers, the type I chose was were called 'Kusadama' and the lady who made them was amazing. Her name is Karolina and she runs a business on FB called 'Oricraft'....she specialises in Paper flowers. Her attention to detail is something else. She is also incredibly efficient and had my order all made up for me back in January.

    https://www.facebook.com/OriCraft

    My bouquet is a crystal bouquet made by Natalie at Love Bouquets. From the moment I got engaged, I knew I wanted Natalie to make by bouquet. I wanted something that would last and that could look elegant, but also show my personality. I'm a bit of a rock chick and I'm prone to skulls and Doc Martens. I showed her my pinterest site and my dress and she came up with my bouquet....I absolutely love it.We are decorating our living room just now, but when it's finished, the bouquet shall be going on display!

    Next up were the group shots.

    When Craig sent us the form, to list the group shots we wanted, I thought...easy peasy....we won't want a lot. He suggests no more than between 10-12. Once we started listing them, we soon realised there would be more than we thought. 12 did it though.

    On the day though, Group shots are quite time consuming. So although we only had 12... it was probably the most stressful part of the day. Ok...it wasn't TOO stressful, but it's not long after the ceremony, people are dissapearing to the bar, the kids are getting sick of smiling, meanwhile people are wanting to congratulate you.

    Craig REALLY know his stuff here....his aim was to get through the list as quickly as possible....at some point's he asked if we would like a break...but I suggested firing through and getting it done. It probably didn't take as long as it seemed. My suggestion is to keep group shots to a minimum.

    We got to catch up with our guests at this point......Stevie hadn't seen the room all set up, so we went inside to see what it looked like and got to see our cake for the first time.

    Lynsey at Custom Cakes made it, she was also very attentive to detail. I sent her my pinterest board and pics of the bouquet and she designed the cake around that. We had 3 layers, Chocolate mint, chocolate peanut butter and Lemon sponge. She suggested getting in touch with Natalie at Love Bouquets and getting the same skulls used in my bouquet, to put on the cake.

    I must admit....I didn't get any of it on the night.....I asked the girls to box up what was left and we took it home. It was lovely, although I didn't get any of the lemon sponge.....mustve been a hit!

    Next up came the speeches...... this happened to be one of my favourite parts of the day.......

    My dad HATES being the centre of attention.... so much so infact, that if you give him a present, he will open it quietly, on his own...(Strange yes). So I always said I would never put him in the spotlight if he didn't want to...so I said to him, he didn't have to do a speech if he didn't want to. But, he wanted to (Which I was so happy with!)

    He was up first and I was quite surprised to see he was rather emotional throughout it, which is a side of my dad I've never seen. I was so touched and his speech was lovely... Once again, it all went in a blur...so he gave me his cards to keep. I keep wanting to read them back, but I've decided to wait until after we see the dvd.

    My husbands and the best man's speech were hilarious..... There whole room was filled with laughter. At one point, Stevie was about to take the mickey out of me and I knew what was coming....I couldn't move for laughing....I thinking I was snorting and everything and he hadn't even said it yet! At this point one of my favourite pictures were taken....

    The day before, we had been in the car, discussing speeches and my son Glen had piped up that he would like to say one. We kind of took it with a pinch of salt and thought that he would decide against it on the day.

    To give you a bit of background, Glen is 6 and has had a speech delay previously. We held him back from starting school due to this and some other delays and for a year he went to a specialist nursery to help him with his language skills. Until he went to this nursery, people found it quite hard to understand him.... but this nursery brought him on in leaps and bounds and he has become quite a confident wee person.

    So when the best man finshed, we asked Glen if he would like to say one and of course he did! His daddy held him up on the table so that everyone could hear.... his speech went something along the lines of.....

    'Hi everyone, my name is Glen Muldoon & I live in Paisley. I'm very good at dancing and also very good at tricks....I hope that you are all enjoying the wedding and that you all have a very good sleep tonight'

    Well....the room erupted..... I was so proud of my wee man at that point...I think there were tears in the room again.I think it's fair to say he has achieved legendary status amongst all our friends. It was quite emotional for him, as after it he had a little cry....but was soon happy as people started putting money in his sporran!

    After this we all sat and had our meal, in between courses we tried to go around and see the people we hadn't spoken to, we had 120 guests at that point so it was quite difficult. I didn't eat much of the food, but it was lovely and we heard no complaints. I think there was just too much going on for me at this point.

    Shortly near the end of the meal, Alan came up to us and asked if we'd heard from the DJ's....at this point I became confused and told him they were coming at 6.30.... Alan kindly pointed out, it was 7pm (oops!). We SLIGHTLY panicked at this point as we began to realise we didn't have a number for them, as all our communication was via, email, facebook, Twitter. We went outside for a bit and Alan told us they had been in touch, that they were stuck in Greenock with the floods but were trying their best to get to us. We more or less mellowed out at this point.....then I remembered there was also a bus of 30 evening guests coming from Glasgow....which was picking up at 6.00pm..... shortly around this time I got a message to say some friends from Port Glasgow couldn't make it due to the floods on the road.....

    See to be honest....we shouldve been freaking out by this point....but we weren't! I think the wine served with dinner had a 'calming effect'. So Craig (our photographer) decided to take us for our pics at this point....

    I think we only planned to be away for half an hour....but things took a different turn!

    So we walked around the houses at the Marina while craig snapped away.....I have to say, this is where he really came into his own. We had met up with him on a few occasions prior to it and had our pre-wedding shoot, so we were totally at ease with him. We seem to have quite a similar sense of humour so joked away and to be honest, it was like going a walk with a friend. *Yes Craig, I seem to remember you saying 'Me & Stevie have bonded now*

    So we were snapping away and I suggested going down to walk in between the boats..... Craig said he had already been down and there was a security buzzer on it and you couldn't get down. I thought.....stuff it...I'll chance it. So we walked down and it was secure entry... so I buzzed and it took me to reception, I explained It was my wedding and I wanted pics, so they let me through...

    At the same point....this man appeared....and he said, 'I'll let you through'...so we all went through at the same time. Stevie and him ended up chatting away and he turned around and said, 'I have a Yacht, you are more than welcome to use it for pictures if you like?' ....we were like 'Hell Yeah.....where is it?'

    What he failed to mention was it was at practically the end of the marina....what I've failed to mention is I'm terrified of water and can't swim...so I was panicking walking across these walkways. My train on my dress had also still not been put up for the night so it was trailing behind me and started getting caught on all sorts of things....at one point, I thought I felt it rip and I asked Craig what it was...his reply 'Barnacles'........

    So we got to the Yacht and as lovely as it was....there was a little bit of water swirling about in it (Bearing in mind the flash floods from earlier). I had to take my 5 inch platform shoes off to go on it....so you can imagine the colour of my dress. The man made us more than welcome and decided to share some of his rum with us....the strongest rum in the world by the tastes of it.....I couldn't drink it, but it sent my husband over the edge.....

    Eventually we remembered we were getting married and that we had guests and our children back at the venue who would be wondering where we were (plus the midgie's were biting like mad!)....so said farewell to our sailor friend (but invited him up for a dance and some buffet later) and headed back.

    I decided Id had enough of my killer heels at this point and hobbled back to the venue. By this point our DJ's had arrived.... the poor guys had had to take a 50 mile detour to get to us due to the flooding.... now THAT is dedication for you, I'm so glad they made it.

    Here's the tweet they put up after the wedding.......pretty impressive eh?

    They managed to get the evening kicked off around 9pm.....to be fair, none of our guests had even noticed the evening part hadn't started. The bus full of guest from Glasgow arrived around the same time. We expected to have a bus full of grumpy guests arrive....but they were the total opposite! Turns out the bus driver had decided to take them the same detour as pin up nights... but had stopped at a shop to let them all buy alcohol so they were all happy! Apparently the 'Bus driver Ted is a legend' and it was the 'Best bus ever'

    This is a fantastic report! You did such a fab job of staying calm considering the storm and floods. And as for your little boy making a speech, that is amazing - I bet none of your guests will ever forget it x

    We cut the cake and started our first dance. We chose 'Do you realise' by the Flaming Lips.

    We started dancing and then halfway through it we got our kids up to dance with us. It was kind of unplanned.....but was great, as the kids know the song from it being played in the car. Once again....I think there were more tears from the guests........

    After this the party started and it was great fun, Craig and the guys from Mallard Productions stayed rather late. I'm looking forward to seeing the video diary

    We had planned to finish the night with 'We are the Champions' instead of Loch Lomond....but to be fair I don't think anyone realised it was the last song....so I asked the DJ's to play a song that us and all our friends love and it was also the last song played at my 30th..... Arcade Fire - Rebellion,

    It was great as our wee girl (who is 4) had lasted right until the end with my niece, so it was good to have them onboard for the last dance.

    We really had an amazing day....I think the fact that there were some unplanned events....like Glen's speech (oh and you shouldve have seen his dancing! He had to give it some after promising it in his speech and boy did he deliver!) and the Yacht. (The man from the yacht came up and had a dance with us later that night.....too funny!), these events really added to our day and really made it. It was good having sometime to ourselves on the Yacht.

    People say to take some time to yourself as the day goes in so quick and it is true. I seem to have forgotten a lot of it (I really can't remember walking down the aisle), so I am so so glad we have the dvd to watch.

    There are some more suppliers I'd like to recommend, but I am going to wait until I get all the photo's as I'll be able to show you more then. I'll hopefully get a highlights clip from the dvd as well.....

    So it's not over yet!.......

    Wow!!! Just wow!!!

    That looked like some Wedding Mrs Muldoon. Everything looked amazing. You were an absolutely stunning bride. And well done you on keeping calm and not losing the plot despite the storms.

    Your wee boy must've stolen the show too. What a wee charmer and so, so brave at his age too!!

    I am so happy to read your report and hear how it all went. I am now on the big "count down and panic stations" stage (just under 11 weeks to go!!)

    Hope married life is treating you well. Take care xxxx

    MissusC.....you will be happy to know that I cannot fault the chartroom in anyway.....they were quite laidback on the build up, but as soon as the day came around, they were so efficient. Alan ended up working the full 12 hours as Kevin was unwell and he was brilliant...he was really on the ball and nothing was too much for him.

    We also chose the lowest meal package and you wouldn't have thought it, the food was lovely. I'm quite sad I'm finished dealing with them all now!
