It seems like my niece Rachel's Scottish wedding was absolutely months ago now, but in fact it's only been three weeks! Apologies for the delaying in posting this picture, but I didn't get a chance before I went on holiday.
The photo is of my sister and her husband and their five children (one of whom is Rachel, the bride) and her new husband, of course. As I mentioned before, all the menfolk wore kilts, so I was very thankful that it wasn't windy!!!
We were so lucky with the weather too. We arrived in Pitlochry the day before in perfect summer weather, but the morning of the wedding the skies turned grey and we had light showers. Fortunately, by the time we went outside in the hotel grounds, the sun was shining brightly – in fact it was only during the evening reception that the heavens opened, accompanied by incredible thunder and lightning.
It was really good to have all the family together for such a happy occasion. There was lots of Scottish dancing and my lasting memory of the night is of Rachel looking like a princess in her wedding dress, jigging around with a pint of lager in her hand! And I was still on duty – Daniel and I had our photo taken with one of the guests who's an avid QVC fan!
The next day we had some time to kill, so we decided to detour to Bridge of Allen, where I lived for some time with my sister. Not only did we catch up with the bride and groom again, we also bumped into my sister and her husband. It seems we all fancied the same trip down memory lane!
Did I mention that I bough the happy couple the luxurious Northern Nights 500 thread count Egyptian cotton bedding set as a wedding present? They were chuffed to bits with it. If you're on the look out for another fab Northern Nights TSV, then be sure to tune in tonight at midnight…
Till next time,
