Gloria and Duncan - 10 November 2012

This was a wedding which gave hope to all who have suffered earlier in life when all the fates appeared to have been against you, robbing you of those you love.  It was after such a life which left them both strong willed independent people who after realising that this relationship was capable of being something special strove to work out how to be one while still individuals.  To say that they have achieved this is something special.  The fact that so many members of their families and friends made the effort to be there was testament to the affection they are held in.

The ceremony was quite traditional in conception however the fun which they find in life was very well to the fore and did include a fair selection of twists which caused a many a laugh not least, this poem which really defines marriage!!

‘Marriage Is’
Marriage is all about giving and taking
And forgiving and forsaking
Kissing and loving and pushing and shoving
Caring and sharing and screaming and swearing.

About being together whatever the weather
About being driven to the end of your tether
About sweetness and kindness
And wisdom - and blindness.

It's about being strong when you're feeling quite weak
It's about saying nothing when you're dying to speak
It's about being wrong, when you know you are right
It's about giving in, before there's a fight.

And for you two today it's about to begin
And for all that the two of you had to put in
Some days filled with joy, and some days with sadness
Too late you'll discover that marriage is madness!


  1. She is looking glorious in this. I always wanted to have a traditional wedding and looking for suggestions of awesome traditional wedding venues. I hope I’ll find a good traditional venue soon as finding venues is quite a task.

    1. Depends on what you call traditional, budget and location. There are a number of old 'churches' such as the Old Kirk at Nethybridge or at Altyre Estate run by the community or upmarket places such as Achnagairn House outside Inverness with a truly wonderful marriage hall. There are many simple places like Inchberry Hall were you decorate it to your style. Decisions, decisions!
