Lisa and Iain were married at Wedderburn Castle,
Iain and his father are both pipers,
Pipers, as in, skirling, droning and generally making music
from a tartan bag with some protruding tubing.
( they were very tuneful actually !).
I arrive at the Castle and find various plants with coloured petals
strung about the place.
Ah – a florist has been at work.
And once inside – I locate a brides shoes, precariously placed upon a picture frame,
then a leather sporran and some rings . . .
So, being pipers – a large amount of tartan was involved,
above we see the men generally doing kilt things.
The bride swooshes down the stairs to her wedding.
( I like the word swoosh, I’m not sure if it’s in the dictionary, but it fits the scene,
the word ‘glides’ would also work quite well).
Iain and his father are waiting on the first floor.
Iain’s father is the feller with the large feather in his cap
he’s going to pipe the bride into the room.
Wedderburn Castle wedding
This is the bit you’ve been wanting to see.
the actual wedding !
Officiating at the wedding, was a Scottish minister,
(he’s the feller in the black cloaky thing).
At first glance – he seemed quite fearsome . . .
but after a few moments – I found him to be an O.K. sort of guy.
