Ann & Fiona – Busby Hotel All day hire 


We had the total pleasure of hosting the all day wedding of Ann & Fiona Elliott at the Busby Hotel on Thursday!
Going back many many months earlier, we were contacted by Fiona, who Stuart knows personally from his work and she asked us to be her entertainment for the day and night. Of course we were truly honoured to oblige!
We met Ann & Fiona at Costa for a coffee and a chat about how they seen their wedding going and we shared some ideas..and some surprises that they had up their sleeve (well Ann did anyway).
The day itself was absolutely scorching, such a beautiful day for what was to be an amazing wedding.


Upon arrival at the Busby Hotel we met Sarah Jane the wonderful wedding coordinator and Jodie with Kyle who was running the overall day. Such a professional venue and great staff!! Well done to all involved!!!
We met Sandy & Al from Al Goold Photography and Senga who conducted the ceremony from Humanist Ceremonies...we will blog about why they call it “tying the knot”!


We were there providing the ceremony music with a great selection of music from Doris Day to Bryan Adams. The bridal party came into the Golden Girls theme tune, followed by Ann and then Fiona. The processional song was Roman Keating’s “This I promise you”. The recessional song was Pharrel Williams “Happy”.


Speeches were before the meal was served and Ian, Ann & Davy (the best man) did a sterling job. Some great jokes were said by Davy:)
We had fun with the guests during the meal and some lovely Pearls of Wisdom were submitted by invited guests.
The evening reception had loads more colleagues and friends come along, first dance being Barbara Streisand “Woman in Love”.
The second dance was an absolute classic! Both Ann & Fiona LOVE ice hockey and support local team Braehead Clan and their mascot “Clangus” tuned up much to the surprise of Fiona. I think her face says it all! Well done Ann on such a great surprise!


The party also featured the King himself, Elvis DJ! A few great classics sung and the rest of the night was just awesome!


Fiona & Ann have already left a review for us of the day…
“Dear Stuart & Laura,

We wanted to thank you from the bottom of our hearts, for the flawless experience we had on Thursday 25/05/17. Without exception every single guest commented what a wonderful time they had and that was down to you. You promised us a magical wedding and you more than delivered. If we had paid you double the fee we would still owe you money. What an absolute hoot. Stuart, you really know how to work a room full of people, and the sing off was hysterical. People will be talking about our wedding for years to come. You were simply magnificent, and Elvis….welll….the King rules 😂

Just such a magical experience from start to finish. Thank you so much, and we were glad that you could be a part of it. We have nominated you for the VOWS awards and our vote has already been cast. Thank you again. We will send you some pics. We wanted to leave a testimonial, but perhaps you could cut and paste this email, couldn’t see where to do that.

Much Love, you were awesome,

Fiona & Ann xxxx”
Thank you to Ann & Fiona for putting their trust in us for their big day. Congratulations and all the best in your married life together..such a lovely couple!
