Elaine and Archie – The Strathaven Hotel

The sun shone for Elaine and Archie who were married at a beautiful ceremony at my favourite venue –  the Strathaven Hotel. It was a glorious day where guests gathered on the lawn with pre and post match tipples, and everyone was relaxed and laid back and enjoyed every moment. The day was meticulously planned by Elaine and she even managed to deliver a beautiful surprise for Archie just after the main dinner course. Guests were joined by “SOS”, a group of Secret Opera Singers who expertly played the roles of cooks and waitresses eager for a chance in the limelight to show off their singing talents. And what talents they had – they brought the house down and Nessun Dorma has seldom sounded better!

Elaine and Archie met at a Rotary meeting at the Strathaven Hotel three years ago and Archie delivered a truly heartfelt speech about how their relationship has grown since then and his undying love for Elaine. It was almost too much for brother-in –law, Ted, whose impeccably timed call for Archie to “sit doon, you’ve said enough” came before Archie had even finished his first sentence! It was both very touching and very funny. The whole day was a roaring success with Derek and Lockie (aka Deringer) providing the night time entertainment. When I left around 9 the music was in full swing and the dance floor looked like it was the place to be.

No doubt Elaine and Archie will be off somewhere very special on honeymoon! You had a perfect wedding and I was delighted to play my small part!  Here are a few reminders of a perfect day for you both………
