early autumn sunlight as Euan and Kirsty tied the knot, just nine years after their first meeting in a tiny Perthshire village.
Kirsty looked stunning as she came up the extremely long aisle with her mother, who gave her away. (Fabulous dress, btw!)
Their friend Lauren told us the story of their relationship, from their first tentative flirtations all the way up to a turbulent ferry journey to the wild and wonderful Knoydart, where Euan asked Kirsty to be his wife.
Their friend Alan read a poem called “Friends”, Kirsty’s cousins, Louise and Rebecca, read us “Marriage Joins Two People in the Circle of its Love”, by Edmund O’Neill, and Euan’s mum, Carol, gave us a reading adapted from the Jewish Marriage Ceremony, before we had a pause for contemplation just before the vows.
After their vows, but before they exchanged rings, Kirsty and Euan asked me to read a poem called “The Blessing of The Hands” by an unknown author.
When they got back from honeymoon, the new Mr and Mrs Thomson sent me these lovely shots by Andrew & Emmett of Wilson McSheffrey with this note.
