A Traditional Scottish Wedding in Vernon, British Columbia


Kiera and Jerry’s traditional Scottish wedding was celebrated in British Columbia, though it could easily be mistaken for a Highlands celebration. With astounding views, bagpipers and tartan to boot, the couple combined classic and cultural details, creating a wedding to reflect some serious Scottish heritage.

The traditional Scottish wedding commenced at a sunlight-soaked ski resort flanked by lush trees, where Kiera and Jerry exchanged vows on a mountain top pavilion. The newlyweds then proceeded to a nearby barn to pose for wedding pictures with their purple-clad posse. The ring bearer and father of the bride, meanwhile, reinforced the traditional Scottish wedding theme with blue and green kilts, appropriately coloured for an outdoor celebration.

Kiera and Jerry personalized their traditional Scottish wedding with charitable donations to the Canadian Cancer Society on behalf on their friends and family. The adventurous couple even took a whirl on the ski lift, proving that there’s nothing uptight about sticking to tradition!
