On Thursday Kevin and I began our journey up to Scotland for a family wedding on Saturday.
We drove to Suffolk to a mirror restorer to see what could be done with my grandparents chip shop mirror. A bit of a detour but provided great scenery and a lovely lunch.
Next up the drive to Yorkshire and a great overnight stay with my cousin Heather and her partner Mark.
We also saw our first pictures of Reggie, Georgina and Jay’s kitten.
Friday morning and a light breakfast and the drive to Leslie.
Our B&B was superb and we were joined by Elaine , Jane and Mum and Dad.
Our hosts dropped us off at Balbirnie House for the pre wedding gathering where we enjoyed an eclectic mix of food and met some new people.
Andrew also made the above logo for me!
Saturday and we awoke to grey skies, but after a good walk the sun was trying to shine through
We all got suited and booted and after a photo shoot made our way to the wedding venue.
The bride glided down the aisle to ‘tale as old as time’ from beauty and the beast. Fitting as both her and the groom are Disney mad.
A Humanist ceremony which was personal, poignant and touching followed. The photo above showing the celebrant literally tying the knot!
Photos followed, the speeches, then dinner. The cake was cut, the band played and guests danced with kilts aplenty swaying!
The joy and hope of a wedding always brings me to tears. The love surrounding the couple, the pride of all the parents in their children and of each other was palpable. A job well done and precious times and memories.
Sunday breakfast was delicious and goodbyes said we made our way back to Thorner. Another wonderful evening and then off to bed.
This morning we made an early start, stopped for breakfast at Stamford and I popped into to work( for 5 hours)
I couldn’t wait for Kevin to pick me up as we were to meet Reggie in person.
OMG what a cutie!
A great long weekend full of love, hope and memories. I feel invigorated and ready for the challenges ahead.
