Guest at Collette and Robin’s Wedding

The Bridal PartyA Lucky Seat at St Mary's ChurchCollette with the kilted ScotsmenTheir Table Plan

My husband and I were invited to ‚  a ‚  friend’s Wedding in Stirling yesterday, with ‚  a Catholic Service held in St Mary’s Church, and the reception held at Glenbervie Manor House near Falkirk. ‚   The special day was a union of Irish and Scottish, so many had travelled from afar to join the couple ‚  witness their vows.

The Bride ‚  looked stunning in a ‚  ruched bodice ‚  dress accentuated with ‚  a feathery bow detail ‚  on the hip, holding a bouquet of cream calla lillies with diamante. ‚   The Groom (my flatmate from our University days) and his Best Man, wore traditonal kilts with a button hole of a single cream calla lily and a blue Scottish thistle. ‚   The Bridesmaid wore an elegant yellow dress (the colour for this fashion season) with a posy of yellow calla lillies.

The Bride and Groom left the Church in a jet black Volvo, with the top down and “All you need is love” by the Beatles playing. ‚  On our arrival at the Glenbervie Manor House, a Scottish Bagpiper played us in and we were treated to a champagne reception. ‚   Whilst the photographs were being taken, the local peacock was displaying his feathers at their best.

Their Table Plan had been created with a difference, with each table identified by a South American place which turned out to be the Bride and Groom’s destinations ‚  for their Honeymoon. ‚   The centre piece of each table was a lit candelabra sitting on a circular mirror. ‚   A beautiful five course meal was served, with a short break to stand and toast the Haggis! ‚   The evening entertainment had a twist too, with a group of young Irish dancers in costume to kick us off.

Thanks Collette and Robin for a wonderful day x
