wedding

Thankyou so much, everyone, for all your good wishes. I’m happy to say that Tom’s kilt hose have been knitted, our vows composed, and this evening the cake will receive its final decorations. At our wedding, a piper will play “ho ro, my nut brown maiden” (anyone who’s seen Powell & Pressburger’s I Know Where I’m Going will appreciate this), and we will raise a toast to all the friends who can’t join us on Islay. That includes all of you. See you soon xx

  5. I’m with Ann ‘I know where I’m going is one of my favourite films’. I remember watching it as a small girl with my Mum, it’s a special memory for me. Congratulations on your wedding, have a super day and I wish you many, many happy and trouble free days together. I hope the weather gods are good to you and you don’t have a typical West Highland day.

  11. oh, I so love that film, and that scene in particular! I’m sure you will be thinking of the closing scene, too :-) I wish you both joy and good health for all your years together. I was very moved by your recent post where you reflected on your surroundings and your health before sharing the news of your wedding; like everyone else on here I am very happy for you.

  18. Of course there will be a piper — it wouldn’t be a proper ceremony without one. (My husband is a piper, so I’m not exactly neutral on that one.)

    Congratulations and all the best to you and the hubby — and Bruce.
