at Seton Collegiate Church & The Roxburghe Hotel
At the end of the meal Rob gave me a book in which was printed a comic poem which he had written about our history, accompanied by loads of photos. The final verse popped the question. A box of Laduree macarons contained the ring. Afterwards he took me for a “sneaky peek round the hotel”, but he’d already secretly checked in (the hotel staff played along superbly) and we had a night in the hotel.
The horses in the field beside Seton came over to the fence to say hi to the guests as they turned up, which one three year-old really enjoyed.
During “Auld Lang Syne” at the end of the ceilidh, Rob & I were dancing in the centre of the circle when suddenly two of Rob’s (strong) mates hoisted him onto their shoulders. I was busy laughing at him when the best man and Rob’s brother ambushed me. We were carried round the dance floor on their shoulders. We were not expecting that!
It was a Humanist ceremony so we were able to inject a lot of humour and personality into it. Also it was a really DIY affair, so we had lots of hand painted jam jars loosely dotted about instead of formal flowers (which we asked guests to take away at the end of the night as gifts).
