Wedding Branding

This weekend I went to a beautiful wedding at Glenskirlie Castle in Stirlingshire. The invitations were white with a subtle lilac edge, hinting at what was to come for the main event. Sure enough, the wedding followed a lilac and white theme with lilac dresses and ties for the wedding party, hints of purple through the grey kilts and dashes of pinks through the bouquets. The menus, table plan and name place cards continued the theme of lilac and white with butterflies weaving throughout. Everything flowed and it was an effective form of branding for a wedding. Here are a few examples of other forms of wedding branding. https://www.pinterest.com/pin/534380312012592496/ https://www.pinterest.com/pin/534380312011989554/ https://www.pinterest.com/pin/534380312009336497/

Topolabamba

Today after running riot over town between printers and the art store, I went for lunch at Topolabamba on St. Vincent’s Street, Glasgow. It was the first time I had noticed this restaurant so decided to give it a try. I instantly fell in love with the decor as it reflected the Mexican food with Mexican motifs, rustic doors and wood panels, but also had a modern contemporary touch with colourful lights. Each table is given pencils to circle their choice of dishes — or as the girls at the table beside me were doing, draw and doodle on the back of the menu. Later on, I followed a bright white neon sign downstairs to the toilets. The stairs were decorated in Mexican mosaic tiles, with cartoon sketches of skeleton people and bulls making up the wallpaper. I reached some bright blue doors with rustic handles, with an illustrated skeleton with red lips highlighting the door for ladies. Through the door, the bright blue continued with beautifully tiles mirrors above each sink. When I went back upstairs, my food had arrived and it was as good as the decor suggested. The chicken tinga tacos are a must! I will definitely be back. You can visit…
