Emma and William’s Scottish Borders wedding

As you can imagine, I listen to lots of speeches. Whether it’s the Best Man, the Father of the Bride, or the Minister conducting the ceremony, I’ve usually heard most of what’s being said, in one form or another, before.
But Emma and William’s Scottish Borders wedding ceremony in Jedburgh’s Old Parish Church was different. It wasn’t just the lack of a central aisle, which meant I couldn’t photograph the couple as I wished to, it was what the Minister said in his address.
My own parents’ 60th wedding anniversary is looming on the horizon, and the ministers words on the meaning of love, in the long term, took on a special meaning. I’m not going to tell you what he said, as I’m going to use it myself in April next year! And I want it to remain a surprise….
After those lovely words we all made out way up to the Carfraemill Lodge Hotel, 30 minutes away. At a visit before the ceremony I’d discovered a single track road, that just 400 meters from the venue, had the most wonderful tunnel of trees. I’m a sucker for either a beach or trees, so I was happy! As were Emma and William when I showed it to them, and their subsequent pictures.
