A Perfect Day

Thought it was about time I posted some photos of Matthew and Rona's wedding last week.  Actually, I've been trying to find out how to download other people's photos from Facebook, because they're better than mine.  Haven't managed it yet though - if anyone can tell me how to do it, please leave a comment.

The fabulous venue :-

Benholm Castle

Rona's parents have been renovating this place for the last 20 years.

A minstrel played :-

while the guests assembled.

But then the bride's father had an important announcement to make :-

(Had Rona done a runner??  Had Matthew done a runner?)  No, it was Rona's Granny - she got the time of the wedding wrong and was late!

The groom waited patiently

for the bride (and Granny!) to arrive

The vows were made :-

and sealed with a kiss :-

Signing the register

. . . while the minstrel played on


The new Mr and Mrs Saunders (with the old one!) :-

And then the party started in true Scottish style

There was a hog roast, a whole salmon, and lots of other nice things to eat.  The electric ceilhid band played until we couldn't dance any more, then there was a bonfire, fireworks and more food.

A perfect day, and a perfect couple!
