Elegant, graceful, chic, sophisticated, colourful, vibrant and beautiful. Only a few of the many superlatives I could use to describe this wonderful wedding. Kathryn and Mishari brought family and friends together from around the globe to help celebrate their marriage. It was a very special day indeed. The rain tried hard to spoil things again but old mother nature was defeated once more by the sunshine on show indoors. The Strathaven Hotel is such a welcoming wedding venue and Kathryn and Mishari took full advantage of all that Sheila and Malcolm have to offer and the whole event was staged at the hotel – from hair stylists, make-up artists and morning preparations, a delightful and touching ceremony in the west lounge which included the ancient Scots tradition of “Handfasting”, through to a wonderful feast and a fabulous ceilidh band to finish off the evening. The pipes and drums brought a resplendent Scottish feel to the proceedings throughout the day and a taste of Scottish culture for the overseas visitors. Katie and I loved every minute!
Kathryn and Mishari, I wish you every health and happiness in your new life together. Thank you for the opportunity to be a part of your special day. To both sets of parents, grans, brothers, sisters, cousins, family and friends, thank you all for your patience and help throughout the day and here’s a few reminders of what made it so special:
