Three Sisters Bake Wedding – Victoria and Matthew
Want to see one of my favourite wedding portrait backdrops ever? Then read on…and I’ll give you a not so subtle clue. It’s the pink house.
This wedding was so on brand for me. Colour? Tick! Joy? MEGA TICK! And, of course, a super cool couple. The lovely Victoria and Matthew.
Colourful and fun Killearn Village Hall wedding
What’s a Three Sisters Bake wedding I hear you cry? It sounds weird and wonderful doesn’t it! Three Sisters Bake are a fab catering and cafe company who are in charge of all things weddings and celebrations at the community run Killearn Village Hall.
I always love a Killearn wedding. It’s a wee village nestled at the foot of the Campsie Fells just outside Glasgow and is home to the most southerly Highland Malt Whiskey distillery – Glengoyne. It’s also home to some super colourful houses and doors…more on those later!
The morning was so chilled out. Victoria got ready with her mum, sister and best friend in some fab accommodation just a short walk from the village hall. I’ve awarded her Joystory’s “Best Shoes of 2022” title. Yes, those Sophia Websters are INCREDIBLE and, I’m sure you’ll agree, worthy winners of that coveted award!
It was early October and the day was crisp and chilly with bright blue skies and sunshine. A perfect autumnal day. The venue looked fab, these two are super stylish and had gone all out with the decor. It was full of colour, garlands and lights were strung from the ceiling and there were purple wildflowers dotted everywhere. Also, they’d created their own ceremony backdrop with some fold out boards and colourful designs. I loved it! And couldn’t believe it when they told me the boards were from Ikea. Planning a DIY wedding? Get yourselves to the Scandinavian superstore!

There was a real buzz to the wedding, a sense of everyone throwing themselves into the celebrations and wanting to savour all the love and emotion of the day. Victoria’s beloved Dad had sadly passed away not too long ago and, whilst there was a lot of emotion, they were determined to have the best time in his honour. They’d made sure a “Tom’s Toast” (bottles of beer) had been placed on each table and he was at the forefront of everyone’s mind throughout.
It was super sunny so most of the guests spent the afternoon outside. The light was incredible, I loved going for a wander around the village with Victoria and Matthew. We visited all my favourite locations – the pink house, the wee cottage with the yellow door and the bright blue doors of the church. Colour, colour, colour! I was in my element!
Three Sisters Bake are famous for their cake tables, and they didn’t disappoint here. Altogether, it was epic. I was a tad worried that all that cake would stop people dancing but no fear there! As a matter of fact, the dancefloor was packed all night, just the way I like it!
