A Tartan themed wedding is spectacular. Scots girls worldwide can get married making a real statement with a wedding dress from the Tartan Spirit Couture Collection which teams up with the groom’s kilt. Add in coordinating bridesmaids and mothers and the colourful combination is stunning, Scottish and unique. You don’t even have to be Scottish – it’s a great look and most people can find a Scottish connection somewhere in their family tree – or just make one up!

Tartan Spirit Couture is currently sold exclusively through the By Storm shops in Glasgow and London and Cameron House Hotel.
