Today my own St Meddan’s Church in Troon is celebrating 119th year anniversary of their treasured south elevation stained glass window.
In 2007, the window was nominated by the Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Scotland as one of 100 treasured places, and it came 4th in the competition!
Although the church was built in 1888, the beautiful stained glass window was added later and ‚ an official ceremony of the new glass took place ‚ on 29th August 1892 (119 years ago ‚ tomorrow).
The window was designed by William Smith, based on the story of ‚ “The healing of Jairus daughter”.
Earlier this year a restoration project on the window completed, and today the Sunday service was a special thanksgiving for the newly restored stained glass window.
It was a beautiful and creative order-of-service
The UK Alliance of Wedding Planners (UKAWP) have organised ‚ a national mingle ‚ and mix evening for wedding planners across the length and breadth of the country on the same night, which takes place ‚ on Thursday 20th October 2011.
There are 6 venues throughout the UK and I’m attending the event in Glasgow at the Blytheswood Square hotel.
Should be a great evening of networking, light drinks and canapes, and meeting new friends!
This morning I heard that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, with their children, are staying at the local Carnell Estate in Ayrshire, whilst Brad films a new movie, World War Zombies, in Glasgow City.
I love the fact they have chosen Ayrshire. ‚ The 16th century ‚ tower and mansion house at Carnell is a beautiful setting for weddings and special occasions, catering for parties of up to 200 guests.
Carnell Estate is a private residence and so can provide an exclusive venue for your ‚ celebrations.

If so, don’t panic and use the weather ‚ as an advantage, for example you can get some spectacular images taken with a stormy scene as your backdrop.
I love this latest piece from the Glasgow Girls Wedding Guide, with loads of advice on how to plan around a wet and wild wedding.
We have had a great weekend so far and there is still day 3 of the Ayr Flower Show to attend. ‚ Thankyou to everyone who has popped by my stall and bought themselves a few goodies.
More photos will follow next week of the best bits from the wonderful show in Ayrshire.
Another year passed and I ‚ was again setting up my display for the Ayr Flower Show this morning. ‚ I will post some photos over the weekend.

The Show opens to the public at 10am until 6pm both Friday and Saturday, and 10am to 5pm on Sunday.
