Hello everyone! @TheWelshWookie and I competed our Race to the Altar on Friday, and have had a wonderful weekend with our families. This weekend involved plenty of fun, wonderful company, fantastic food and drink: it was everything I hoped for, and more!
As you know, our Wedding Day had the theme ‘Race to the Altar’, and we had lots of running touches throughout the day. We had:
A huge banner outside the venue, marking the Start Line to the race that is the rest of our lives together:
Each table was named after some of our favourite races, along with one of my ‘Wednesday Wisdom’ quotes!
Our cake topper were runners:
We had podium candles:
And a balloon arch over the cake table :)
We also had Nike IDs made especially for the day. We’ll be running in these in Madrid!
Our favours were personalised medals. The guests loved them!
We had a wonderful day, with a gorgeous Nuptial Mass in St. Margaret’s Church, Lochgilphead. I was delighted to see that the church was full!
Our dinner and dancing was in the village hall in Tarbert, and the band we had, The Democrats were fantastic! @TheWelshWookie and his brother got up on stage and did their rendition of The Beatle’s ‘I Saw Her Standing There’ which was fab!
We also had some ceilidh dancing thrown in, which was such a lot of fun.
At the end of the night, we finished the dancing with some Scottish classics: ‘Caledonia’, ’500 Miles’, ‘Auld Lang Syne’ and Runrig’s live version of ‘Loch Lomond.’ Brilliant!
As the guests were leaving, and only those staying locally were left, we had some races up and down the hall! A perfect end to a great day! :)
