Let’s get married, in the mountains, in December – are you up for that?
Could there be a more romantic setting for an elopement than the Three Sisters of Glencoe? That was where Yann & Virginie chose to be married just before Christmas, with only their wedding planner, Gabrielle and their photographer Sean Bell as witnesses. Only a brisk hike up the hill from the A84, it felt like […]
I first met Neil and Nele not long after my book was published. They were among the very first people to read it, so I was very touched to see this sign when I arrived to conduct their fun-filled, imaginative and very emotional ceremony at Carlowrie Castle.
