The Wedding...


It does not seem 18 months ago that Mike whisked Elsa away after she returned from Afghanistan and proposed (announcement here, no Benta I didn't wear a hat lol) on top of a mountain (quick flash of ring and mountain here!)

We travelled up to Scotland last week to see the happy couple tie the knot in a beautiful ceremony at Comlongan Castle.

Mike's brother Mark, Dad and Mum.

The Bride entering the Great Hall on the arm of her brother Chris having climbed three stories of a very narrow spiral staircase in that dress!  

A reading by Mark to his brother and bride. (And a view of the back of the dress!)

Chris and his lovely girlfriend Sian in the gardens.

The Best Man Owen looking rather dashing, Elsa, Mike and Maid of Honour Cat who did a fabulous job of nerve calming.  In fact both Owen and Cat could probably make a good living of how to do this, they were both great! 

John and I with Bride and Groom.

We thought this painting was a portrait of Ben, Cat's partner, and John was just showing that he can do a very good monkey grump too.

We girls together.

And, as yet, the only professional photo out there!  So looking forward to seeing the rest of them!!

Just one of those days when everything clicked into place.  

Have a wonderful life together my lovelies! 



  1. What lovely photos. It must have been a wonderful day and I am sure that they will have many happy years ahead of them.

  2. Oh Amo, it looks perfect: the setting, the room, the bride, the dress . . . All look fantastic, and you, my dear, mother of the bride, look fab, despite not wearing a hat, LOL. Thanks for sharing the photos :-)

  3. Your excitement and happiness are palpable! Long life and happiness to the bride and groom! And what a beautiful dress. Both of you :o)

  4. What a truly beautiful bride and the bride's mother is a beauty too. Such a lovely happy post.

  5. What a beautiful place to spend such a special day. Stunning bride and a stunning dress. You must've been so proud. What a wonderful day. Best wishes to the happy couple for a lifetime of happiness together.

  6. What a lovely bride, lovely wedding, lovely day, lovely couple, lovely family! Thank you for sharing with all of us!

  7. Thank you for your lovely comments, they have been passed on to the new Mr and Mrs, I know they look in on the blog now and then too.

    We really could not have asked for a better day. The staff at the castle made the couple of days we stayed there so special too. You have to really love it when things just sail along smoothly.
