A wonderful evening wedding ceremony in Glasgow at The Radisson Blu, City Centre was my first of 2016. If you like the idea of carving out your own little wedding niche in the centre of all that lovely city hustle and bustle, The Radisson is a fantastic venue with lots to offer.
Dragonflies and Moonbeams
Together in the evening’s dreams
Dancing in the breath of love
Skipping to and fro’
I was excited to attend the world premier of Mary, Queen of Scots as part of Glasgow’s West End Festival.
The performance surpassed all expectations – the atmosphere and the emotion throughout the entire evening was incredible.
I would like to begin by welcoming you all here today in the fabulous surroundings of Edinburgh Castle to share in this wonderful celebration.
Today’s ceremony will celebrate the couple’s union. Not simply a legal union; but an emotional commitment they will honour for the rest of time, a commitment built on the solid foundations of mutual respect, understanding, communication, trust and love.
After today’s Wedding at Dalmahoy, I took the paperwork back to Lothian Chambers.
I have to say; it appears that the wearing of a tartan catsuit and highland jacket, when walking through Edinburgh City Centre, attracts attention. I had the good fortune to be stopped for a chat by a few people. Not least, an old Irishman who introduced himself as Arthur Mullens. He complimented me on my “fine attire”.
He told me his father brought him up to be sharp as a tack, but also a gent.
I come across a piece of information, a statement or happening from around the world that knocks me for six. An event that signals the direction in which humanity is heading. The sort of harbinger that I like to imagine Orwell, Huxley or Bradbury used as inspiration. While the media fixes its lens firmly upon the latest war zone, little alarm bells are ringing in our living rooms.
