2021 Global Wedding Awards

Page 56 www.lux-review.com LUX 2021 Global Wedding Awards Blairmore is a working farm, which owners, Ailsa and James Clark purchased in 2013 after a long search to find their perfect forever home. They’d decided they wanted to live in the countryside and their jobs didn’t allow for commuting so they started working on the idea of a lifestyle business. They quickly got to work with the assistance of architects, family and friends to develop a plan for six holiday cottages on the farm. And the rest is history. Whether guests are seeking a restful break away from it all or fancy helping to collect eggs or root for vegetables, the choice is theirs. They can even pick their own vegetables from the farm’s market garden, which is bursting with seasonal vegetables, so they can add the freshest flavours to their cooking. Guests can also join feeding time to make sure the animal neighbours, including Clydesdales, highland cattle and sheep get their fill, as well as go on a farm tour and learn how to wrangle chickens and steer them into their coop. Indeed, the farm proves a truly unique and intimate wedding venue. The happy couple and their guests can enjoy all the luxuries of a boutique hotel but with the exclusivity of the whole of Blairmore to themselves. The stunning countryside will serve as memorable scenes for the special day and provide spectacular wedding photography, too. It is the perfect wedding location for those couples who are seeking an alternative to the run-of-the-mill. The farm can also cater for a range of other parties, including anniversaries, family Blairmore Farm is a Scottish country retreat where luxury meets the good life. Situated within the historical county of Perthshire, it’s a breath-taking backdrop for marrying the love of your life.
