This was such a lovely comment I felt I had to post it here. Gareth and Fumino have been looking at the proof of the album I have put together for them, and they wanted a couple of changes:
“Page 26: I guess you chose 139 instead of 138 because you are visible in the mirror, but if it’s OK with you we’d like 138. You were also a great part of our day and it would be nice to see some photo of you in there!”
If Tamsin and Nick’s wedding was cold and wet, two days later, Gareth and Fumino’s wedding at Wedderburn Castle was cold and snowy. And not only did they brave the cold and white stuff to pose in front of the castle – they did it TWICE, so that Fumino could show off both her traditional kimono, but also her white wedding dress.
There was a real mixture of cultures for the day. Gareth is originally from Liverpool, but his family now live in Dundee. He and Fimono live in Tokyo and half their guests flew round the world to be there with them. Saki was served after the ceremony, Fumino, her mother and bridesmaids wore kimonos, and Gareth and his brother wore kilts.
And although jet lag took it’s toll, I was amazed that a party of 15 could have such fabulous fun learning to ceileidh (with Gareth’s brother’s help!)
Wedderburn Castle is one of my favourite venues. It is spectacular to look at, both inside and out, and the relaxed atmosphere is always welcome (as is the wonderful food!)
Becca and Rowan were blessed with the first dry day for some time, and there was even a hint of sun! We weren’t expecting the midges though, considering this was late October and not on the west coast……
With a great company of family and friends, the whole day seemed to echo with laughter and fun – from the hand made place settings and table names, right through to the enthusiastic dancing to the ever wonderful Callanish.
