The Final Celebration

It couldn't have been better weather or a more perfect setting for our final wedding celebration in this summer of weddings!

 
At the Royal Tay Yacht Club on the bank of the River Tay in Dundee in the most glorious warm sunshine we gathered for a blessing of Kirsty and Adrian's marriage. I think it was the first time I've ever been out without a coat and scarf, never mind a cardigan, on a visit to Scotland!


The very happy couple arrived hand in hand for a short service to celebrate their week long marriage. It was lovely occasion for Scottish relatives and friends to share their special day.


Although this week a certain little someone decided to get in on the action...


And almost, but not quite, stole the show... peepo!


After drinks on the terrace we had yet another delicious meal, although I ended up sharing mine with this little chap, who once again was giggling and happy all evening until he finally flaked out in his push chair.


The meal was followed by some lively dancing to a ceilidh band (lots of men in kilts!) but it was also a chance to catch up with family members - Stewart with his Mum and Dad and sister in particular.


And of course there was cake... a rather well travelled cake having come 430 miles in the boot of our car the previous day, but it seemed to survive. So another perfect day and a very happy Kirsty and Adrian.


We were back home again on Sunday after another 9+ hours on the road and now I need to get back to some sort of normality, whatever that may be! It really has been the most wonderful summer although I seem to be suffering from post wedding exhaustion... three weddings and five celebrations in the space of eight weeks have left me feeling just a little tired but perhaps I shouldn't be surprised when I think of all the travelling, baking, sewing and entertaining it has involved.

Now if you'll excuse me I'm going for a lie down but I'll be back in a day or two with my exciting news.
