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
