City Chic Wedding
39 days to go
We’re now counting down the days (literally) to Susan & Al’s wedding celebrations. By my reckoning, we’re having a wedding in 39 days time. So, are you ready for this week’s instalment of WFILwedding chat? Read on and discover this week’s news…
Wow, what a week! We went to Mugdock Country Park with Chantal and Scott for the pre-wedding photoshoot and we are really pleased with the results! We went in the evening, just as the sun was going down and Chantal was very excited about the light! Al and I regularly walk round Mugdock so it was nice to go to a place that means something to us both. We didn’t realise the time and our cars got locked in the car park!!! So in the end we had to get a taxi home and then go back the next day to collect them!
This weekend we have finalised our vows, decided which ceilidh songs we will play for the mini ceilidh at the wedding and have been working on our DIY favours and decorations! Al has been busy making a flag for his nephew to carry up the aisle, it’s not finished yet but I think it looks great! Can’t believe that its 39 days to go until we get married, it’s been a complete dream! It feels great that all our the plans are coming together – one of the best things about it is how excited everyone is for the big day!
“Now most of the big decisions have been made and we’re both sorted out with dresses, we’ve been able to focus on some of the other tasks that require more thought, such as, our vows!
Al has recruited FIVE hairy bridesmaids for his big charity run on the 3rd August at Aberdour Festival! He’s raised half of his target so far and is hoping to raise £500 for Mary’s Meals. He’s ordered them five matching dresses to wear, it’s going to be hilarious!
Here are a few words from Ryan (my bridesman): “Susan and I have known one another for most of our lives. We grew up two streets apart, went to high school together, University in Glasgow and even taught English in Thailand together.
“We no longer live in the same city and have, at times lived on opposite sides of the world from one another, however, the beauty of our friendship is that despite not seeing each other regularly, when we meet it’s like we had seen one another the day before. We’ve shared many memorably moments and life changing events in our lives, so when Susan asked me to be her bridesman I was thrilled to be part of her big day.
“It was great to catch up with her and Al in London last weekend and I am looking forward to their wedding on 31st August!”
Is anyone else getting married on Sunday 31st August 2014 in Scotland? Let us know what you’ve been up to! Niels x
