Getting married or even organising a wedding is just a sequence of diary appointments and to do lists.. From starting out picking your venue, finding your dress, your rings, your celebrant, suits, stationery, agreeing a guest list, caterers, bands, photographers, make up, hair, choosing your bridal party. There is never a spare moment. Really. Don’t let anybody lie to you and say ‘oh mine wasn’t like that or we just got on with it’. They are lying. I organise for a living. I love an amazing, filtered, colour coded spreadsheet as much as the next person but to say I’ve enjoyed organising our wedding would be a stretch. The politics involved require a whole other blog post! But this weekend was a date i had firmly fixed in my mind as the point where all the loose ends would be tied up and I’m pleased to say they are.
We chose a venue in Inverness – Bogbain Farm. We live in Glasgow. I’m from the highlands originally, my fiancé spent a lot of time up there during his childhood so it felt like the natural choice. We went up at the start of the year to agree a lot of the suppliers and this weekend was spent meeting them all again and finalising timings and details for the day. It’s now 6 weeks until the big day! All that is left to do is my dress fittings and relax and look forward to it all. And I am really looking forward to it now.
It is a long old way up that A9 to Inverness and then back down again to Glasgow. But the sunshine made it worth it.
The sun was absolutely beaming both days and as we have just bought a new DSLR I wished we had more time to stop and take pictures.
We stayed in the Kingsmill where we are staying when w get married. Had a lovely meal there and then a few too many glasses of fizz with our friends.
Six weeks on Thursday and we’ll be doing this trip again, but for the real thing.
