let’s coorie in

First things first, what the heck is a coorie?

Coorie (pronounced ku-ri) is a scots language word meaning to hug or to show love by holding someone close in your arms. It’s also often understood to mean embracing all things Scottish, especially the outdoors. Vogue magazine described it as Scotland’s answer to Hygge. We think it’s a good mix of all those things and perfectly sums up our role in helping couples celebrate their love in Scotland.

why scotland?

Ok… we’re hella bias but we think Scotland has it all, epic mountains & glens, untouched beaches & lochs, ancient castles & forests and stunning urban architecture. Once you’ve decided on the where, you can pick between a religious, civil, symbolic or a humanist marriage ceremony. And thanks to our super flexible approach to weddings, you can get married literally anywhere at any time of day. So if sunrise on a beach is your jam, or sunset on a city rooftop, or anything in between, we got ya!!

elopements

We adore elopements and we know all the best places for your Scottish adventure. Elopements are all about the two of you and creating a once in a lifetime experience that is incredibly intimate & personal. That’s not to say you can’t bring a few witnesses along for the ride, there are absolutely no rules when it comes to planning a Scottish elopement.

micro weddings

We also love to plan micro weddings. You may choose a smaller wedding because you want to spend less money or because you want to spend more on the details that really matter to you. Maybe you find the idea of being the centre of attention at a larger gathering a bit intimidating or you just want lots of quality time with your favourite people. Smaller groups are also more manageable, meaning you can get married in locations that just wouldn’t be practical for large weddings.

locations

We cover the whole of the Scottish mainland and some islands, some of the most popular locations are Glencoe, The Cairngorms, Loch Lomond, Isle of Mull, Edinburgh & Glasgow, Dunnottar Castle and The Highlands. If you’re undecided we can talk you through locations and find the perfect place for you.

It’s not an overstatement to say that our wedding wouldn’t have happened for years without Emily at Team Coorie’s help! Due to the pandemic, we kept debating the changing options and finally decided to do an intimate ceremony sooner than later while taking advantage of visiting family from overseas. However, that meant there were only 5 weeks to plan the entire wedding. Without Emily’s local expertise and commitment to proactive communication with not only us, but also all the suppliers, we wouldn’t have been able to pull it off. In the end, it was a beautiful several days with our closest family coming together in Scotland and we wouldn’t change a thing. Thanks for your hard work and patience in working with us! Highly recommend Emily and the team if you want confidence in having a beautiful wedding in Scotland without being local for any of the planning!

“Our wedding plans were disrupted for the fourth time only two weeks before the date. The team at Coorie had the exact attitude we needed – “we’ll make this wedding happen!” They swooped in and saved the day – from the perfect venue, to a lovely celebrant, and even a videographer. They took into consideration our vision for the day and made it a reality. We only wish we had sought their help at the start of our planning process! Look no further if you are in need of an efficient, friendly, go-getter team on your side for your ultimate elopement or micro wedding.”

– Amanda + Andrew

I simply don’t have enough superlatives for Coorie. We turned to Emma and her team in a time of need after our wedding was postponed due to the pandemic. We wanted help with inspiration and organisation and what we got was so much more, and they even made it fun! They have a wealth of experience, full of ideas and truly get the emotional and financial investment couples put in to their weddings. There is never anything too small that Coorie can’t help with and they genuinely cared about our wedding as if it were their own. I can wholeheartedly recommend Coorie and what they stand for. Perhaps the highest praise we can offer Coorie is that we now consider Emma and her team friends.

When our third attempt at getting married happened to be during the tight restrictions of lockdown, Grant and I decided to embrace a micro wedding rather than postpone again.

The Coorie girls were absolutely fantastic and we will always be grateful to them for the part that she played in our special day.

“We would not have had such an intimate & romantic day if it wasn’t for Coorie. You did a phenomenal job. We can’t thank you enough, we really appreciate all you have done.”

our approach

No two weddings are the same and we don’t have an “off the peg” package, we create one for you based on your preferences and budget. This allows us to select from the best suppliers in Scotland and not a shortlist. We can manage the whole planning process from start to finish, or just elements of it. We can help you with: location & venue search, supplier selection, vendor & contract management, accommodation & transport, wedding day timeline and budget management. If you want to talk, we’re always available for facetime, zoom, skype, old school phone calls, whatever suits you… we like nothing better than chatting weddings.
