I have combined my sister's wedding in Scotland with a road trip holiday to get there.
Firstly I promised to put up some pictures of the outfit I made for the wedding comprising my Burda jacket and Burda Style dress. I wore this outfit with some lovely, albeit extremely high Carvella shoes and a great little satin flower bag given to me by my twin sister. Ignore the crumpled look of the left-hand sleeve head on the picture of the dress below, I had just put the outfit on and asked my D Mike to attach the lingerie strap to my slip and it got a little twisted in the process and never mentioned it to me before taking the photo's ahhhhh.
I am very glad I had the jacket to wear because the weather in Scotland was very cool and I never got to expose the dress because I felt too cold.
For our holiday route, we left our home base in Essex and set off on the first leg of our journey heading for beautiful Derbyshire, then on to the Yorkshire Dales, followed by Coniston Waters. We left Coniston Waters on Tuesday heading for Loch Ness, but took a little detour to Linton Tweeds in Carlisle where I felt like I had died and gone to heaven. Our next destination was a beautiful little place which overlooked Loch Ness and last but not least we stopped just outside Aviemore before arriving in Elgin for the wedding. Here are some pictures of our trip:
Can you spot Nessie in the pictures above? Our folding bikes came in really handy when we wanted to go and explore, and can you believe that Mike kept asking me to get closer to the waterfall - is this a sign I ask myself - should I be worried?????
In a small town close to Aviemore, famous for its skiing centre, we spotted this beautiful little red squirrel outside our bedroom window - this was a first for me, and look at the wonderful cattle - don't you just want to give them a hug?
Last but not least I have to include a photograph of the wedding - from left to right, my sister's daughter-in-law, her new husband Robert, Linda the bride and her son Ross, and in the front row, Ross and Karen's wonderful family, Ollie aged 2.5yrs, Adam 4.5yrs and a very grown up Owen aged 6. Don't they look handsome.
Check out the guys dressed in their kilts - they had to do a twirl for the camera ha ha.
