I love a bit of Scottish culture at a wedding and Richard’s proud ancestry provided plenty of that. I soon learnt that Scottish tradition included bringing along a massive 5ft sword (aka a claymore) which was proudly on display at the wedding ceremony. Jasmine, who is not one to be outdone by her new husband, also rustled up an equally impressive surprise drum solo at the end of the night before the couples’ first dance. Brackenridge put on a stunning day and the weather was picture perfect. The photographer Mary Sylvia had scoped out an excellent location for photos and the bridal party had fun in the field, but really, all of this is much better to see in the video than read on my website. So let’s get on with the film.
One of the highlights was a fantastic traditional Scottish toast at the end of the film from Richards father.
May the best ye hae ivver seen be the warst ye’ll ivver see.
May the moose ne’er lea’ yer pantry wi a tear-drap in its ee.
May ye aye be hail an hertie till ye’r auld eneuch tae dee.
May ye aye juist be sae happie as A wuss ye aye tae be.
May the best you have ever seen be the worst you will ever see.
May the mouse never leave your pantry with a tear drop in its eye.
May you always stay hale and hearty until you are old enough to die.
May you still be as happy as I always wish you to be.
