Mr and Mrs Ernest Chou
1st photo after ceremony
We had a beautiful day at the castle. It was windy but the only day this week it didn't rain and there was sun. We were picked up at the hotel by a 1946 Rover. The driver had to wait a bit cause we having a bit of trouble getting those weird laces to stay tied on the shoes Ernest was wearing. It was so cool riding in this car out to the castle. Ernest can tell more about the car details cause he's into that stuff, but it was cool.
We arrived at the castle and our videographer and photographer were capturing every moment. I gave in and let Ernest bring his camera but he was under strict instructions not to touch it till after the ceremony. We walked down the long path toward the castle and Loch Ness arm in arm with our celebrant, Judi, and our coordinator, Susan, walking behind us.
When we got to the bend, we were met by the Highland Piper, Colin, who marched us into the castle. We ended up on several tourists' camera also. We were taken down into a little section that fronts the loch with the
inside car that drove to and from castle
tower in the background. It was so beautiful! (have I used that term enough?)
I started tearing up almost before we even started. I was trying so hard not to cry and ruin my makeup and make bad pictures. We had a Celtic singer who started the service out and it just seemed to invoke the ancient spirits. (ok, that was probably overkill, but it was very special in that setting).
The ceremony was everything I'd hoped and Ernest didn't laugh or make funny faces. He actually took it seriously when our hands were bound and everything. We had another Celtic song after we exchanged rings then we signed the legal paper and it was a done deal.
Picture time. I let Ernest take some of his own so we could share with you so hope you enjoy. Obviously most are just me but I did get a couple of E in the kilt. We will share the professional ones when we get them.
