Venue History: In former times the Dower House to Philiphaugh Estate, was built in 1751, not long after Covenanters and Royalists fought the bloody battle of Philiphaugh in 1645, a few yards from the now tranquil and peaceful lawns, flowers and woodlands amidst which the lovely old house lies. One of the original beams of the house is above the fireplace in the main lounge, carved with the date of the building.


Wedding Trivia:
GARTER AND BRIDAL BOUQUET TOSS
In parts of Europe during the 14th contrary, having a piece of the bride's clothing was thought to bring good luck. Guests would literally destroy the brides dress by ripping off pieces of fabric. In order to prevent this, brides began throwing various items to the guests - the garter belt being one of the items.In order to avoid this problem, it became customary in the 14th century for the bride to toss her garter to the men. Sometimes the men would get drunk, become impatient, and try to remove the garter ahead of time. Therefore, the custom evolved for the groom to remove and toss the garter. With that change the bride started to toss the bridal bouquet to the unwed girls of marriageable age. Tradition says that whoever catches the bouquet shall be the next to marry. She keeps the bouquet to ensure this destiny.
