English Sarah and Scottish Islander William met by chance on a trip to Uganda where they were designing a primary school for a charity. They had their first date in Kampala, and upon returning to the UK, after a lot of long distance meetings, the rest is history! They were married in her father’s church with the ceremony conducted by her father (after he’d first walked her down the aisle of course) and what a special ceremony it was – with every seat in the church filled and people standing too! I’d love to describe this as a typical English garden wedding with tea and cream cakes served in a beautiful bunting filled garden for everyone after the ceremony before they headed to their evening venue on big red buses. I can’t describe it as entirely “English”, though for that would be doing the Scottish contingent a disservice! The ceilidh band in the evening were such fun, and I must say that the “Strip the Willow” that evening, was the most impressive I’ve ever seen with so many people taking part. The evening ended with Auld Lang Syne and a very special send off for a very special couple!
Sarah so kindly said “I absolutely love our wedding photos! I know I’ve already mentioned that, but I can’t help but repeat myself!”
