Well hello there.
How are you all? I hope you have all had a great Easter weekend and not eaten too much chocolate (like I have!). We have just spent a lovely few days in Scotland celebrating with family at the wedding of my cousin Jo.
We travelled east to the Kingdom of Fife as the ceremony was taking place at an 18th century Georgian mansion. Jo met her husband to be in Sydney, Australia where they both live and work. They are originally from the UK, she is from London, he is from Glasgow. Jo's parents are Scottish (her Dad is my Mum's brother). So it was perfect that the wedding be held in Scotland and it was amazing that so many friends came from Australia to join the celebrations.
The ceremony was touching and there was a lot of love in the room. Many tears were shed. After photographs were taken, we spent time mingling in the garden as the sun was shining and the champagne was flowing. For the wedding feast, the couple had a piper lead them to their table and traditional Scottish fayre was served. Tealights flickered on each table and we all received an Easter egg as a wedding favour. Harry was suitably impressed with this! I don't think I've ever seen my cousin so happy and she was utterly beautiful. It's wonderful to see how she has grown up and found her perfect mate.
Three days later we were back in Glasgow to celebrate with the groom's family for a traditional Indian wedding reception. I've never been to one of these before and didn't really know what to expect, but it was absolutely fantastic. It's one heck of a party! Our hosts made us unbelievably welcome and once again, there was a lot of love in the room for the newly wedded couple.
We've returned home tired but happy. It was fantastic to see my family again as we are all so far away from one another. Hopefully we'll be reunited soon. x
