SRUC Horticulture student Lynne Fleming and her partner David Fleming have tied the knot in their beautiful garden in Cumbernauld.

The couple bought their cottage in Condorrat, Cumbernauld, in September 2019 and spent both Lockdown's renovating it and the overgrown garden.

Two years later, not only did their garden transformation go on to appear on The Beechgrove Garden, but it also became their wedding venue.

“The garden was a nightmare when we moved in,” said Ms Fleming, who did a National Certificate in Horticulture with Garden Design at Scotland’s Rural College (SRUC) last year.

When BBC Scotland was looking for viewers’ gardens to film, Ms Fleming sent them some before and after photos of their project.

Several months later, following a phone call and a further exchange of images, a TV crew from The Beechgrove Garden came out to film for an episode which will air on BBC Scotland on Thursday, September 9.

For Ms Fleming, who spent years working first in banking and financial services and then in jewellery shops in Glasgow and Edinburgh, returning to education to study Horticulture has been like a dream come true.

“We are very lucky to have such a wonderful outdoor space and have spent many a night in the garden with the firepit and a glass of wine,” she said, adding that she is now doing an HNC in Horticulture at SRUC’s Oatridge campus in West Lothian.

“We have done so much since we moved in and are still planning more changes, including more decking and hopefully a new lawn at the back.

“I have a large polytunnel in the garden and a greenhouse, and love growing plants from seed - although now I seem to have lots of plants.”
