Have a look at this image:
This is a picture taken from Maltings floor in the world famous Balvenie distillery in Dufftown, Banffshire. Its in this room where four men on different shifts tend the Malting Floor, turning the barley to ensure even germination – one of the key stages involved in producing the multi award winning Balvenie Single Malt.
It’s also the room where another happy 88 Events wedding couple, Anne and Joffy, decided to host their wedding breakfast.
How did this happen? Well, it helps that the groom has some close family connections to the distillery and with the help of 88 Events this is how they turned this rarely seen room into one of the most beautiful weddings seen in Bannfshire for quite some time.
All I can say is that I’m glad my team didn’t have to clear the room of all that barley and as you can see from the video below, the Balvenie staff ensured the room was absolutely spotless before we began the set-up.
In case you’re wondering why the detailed info on diamonds on the table numbers, Anne is a serious diamond lover and there’s nothing she doesn’t know about them!
Have you got married in an unusual place or organised events in weird, wonderful or just downright strange venues? Let me know, I’d love to hear all about it!
P.S For a more accurate description than I could ever give of the processes that go into making this wonderful whisky, click here to go to the Balvenie Distillery’s site and take the online tour – I highly recommend it.
P.P.S Special thanks to Westley of Aberdeen Wedding Films for putting this wondeful video together.
