Eilidh and Stuart are quite simply one of the loveliest couples you could hope to meet. Being part of their wedding day was a pleasure from start to finish. It says something when the most challenging part of their day was coping with some hefty motorway traffic on the way to the ceremony.
The couple married in the beautiful Barony Hall in Glasgow, a most splendid wedding venue. After a totally relaxed ceremony we had an equally relaxed wander round the gardens behind the Provand’s Lordship, which is incidentally the oldest surviving house in Glasgow and well worth a visit. The only thing you may have to do is cope with the odd coach load of tourists which, true to form, Eilidh and Stuart took in their stride.
As well as a delicious Empire biscuit and lovely memories, I also took home from this wedding a new expression to add to my collection of Scottish slang gleaned at weddings. Alongside the phrases ‘piece and ham’ (ham sandwich), ‘greeting’ (crying) and ‘dreich’ (it’s not very nice outside), I will now be able to use the phrase ‘wee totie’ with confidence thanks to Eilidh. I wonder what will be next?!
