When I met Donald and Maureen to prepare for their wedding I knew that they were a special couple. I felt elated just having spent a couple of hours with them. They were married in a field in Pollok Park surrounded by their friends and family and I have never witnessed anything so joyous. I felt I was part of something quite magic and my conclusion is that they were in fact all fairies and elves and I dreamt the whole thing!! I wish Donald and Maureen years and years of magic and happiness.
These tips come from a recent ceremony I performed. Here I am taking inspiration from Cat and Cameron’s wedding on 26th July 2019 at Houstoun House, Uphall. Here i am marrying them...
Tip 1. Have a piper. Or go big.
Why have a piper when you can have a whole marching band? What an entrance! Do it your way.
Tip 2. Buttonhole Tip
Buttonhole corsage for the Mums? But isn’t it going to pull at her dress? Not if there’s a magnetic attachment to fit it to her fabulous purse! Absolutely inspired.
Tip 3. Ribbons.
FAQ: How big should my hand fasting ribbons be? Anything goes, but these beauties are particularly pleasing to the eye taken from the clans, the family tartans a Hunting Robertson Tartan and an ancient Henderson Tartan. And yes, it does match the purse.
More tips coming next time! Thanks for reading.
