Schuggies Ceilidhs

COVID-19 Update
COVID 19 Update Ceilidhs are very social celebrations that everyone gets involved with. You therefore cant hold a socially distant Ceilidh. All my weddings (and other Ceilidh events) up to October (as of June) have been rescheduled. To keep your momentum going, I hold regular online ceilidhs where you can dance with a partner, a ghost, or a broom to keep your ceilidh ninja spirits up. Keep safe. Schuggie
If you want a truly unique and memorable experience for your special day, why not enjoy a rip-roaring traditional Ceilidh dance.

As an experienced events planner, I will ensure that your special day goes smoothly. This is your special day, and what better way to celebrate than with some traditional Scottish dancing! Don’t worry about knowing the dance moves, or whether people will dance, we will get everyone up and showing their moves. Whether they are 4 or 84 your guests will be talking about your wedding party for years to come. Working closely with you, I will ensure that your celebration goes without a hitch and you can enjoy your day, your way. Ceilidhs are the perfect way to celebrate the union of two souls, with fun, laughter and a great time!

What is your most memorable wedding?

Outdoors, in a hotel garden, under an old oak tree. We danced till it was far to dare to dance!

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Honest, Authentic, Innovative, Attentive and Customer-Oriented.

What about your business are you most proud of?

The way I have built a reputation for fun, inclusive social events.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Ask your suppliers for tips. What can they share with you that will save you time, money or heart ache as you plan for your big day. Use their experience.

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

My ceilidh options for a first dance- especially when the couple getting married don't want to be the center of attention in that way.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

We would have an initial consultation usually over Zoom/Skype to go through what they want for the evening. I have loads of ceilidh ninja suggestions for them and tips from my years of experience in the industry. I encourage them to read my reviews and testimonials. Then once booked, there are a number of touch points before the big day to check in on their planning process. I also hold public ceilidhs, have private Pinterest Boards and a variety of media to build up the anticipation.

What makes a romantic first dance?

One where the couple enjoy it. That might be one they have planned together or a ceilidh option involving all their guests.

What is your number one floor-filler?

Ceilidhs are that social, everyone joins in whether they are 4 or 84, they all dance together.

Which band from the past would you most like to have been part of?

Definitely Runring. Great Scottish band.

What is the soundtrack to your life?

Definitely Bostons, More than a feeling.
