Scotland - the wedding and the Ceilidh

On Saturday we woke up at the Lodge on the Loch close to the little town Aboyne. We started the day with a full Scottish breakfast - since we wasn't sure what the food situation was going to be for the day we wanted to get a solid start. Then I went back to the room and relaxed and read while A hung out with the groom and the rest of the guys from the bachelor party. At one we got picked up from our hotel by a bus along with some other wedding guests and we were off to the event if the day!




 

It was such a great day! We met some really great people, the bride and groom was beautiful and looked so happy. The wedding ceremony and the place it took place was beautiful and and the dinner was  the traditional Scottish Ceilidh, all night dancing! Think square dance mixed with some ring dance but to Scottish folk music. It was absolutely awesome, I haven't danced that much since the high school disco's during the 90's! I loved it. And there was kilts! Genuinely brilliant. I almost tore my arms out of their sockets I was swinging around so hard. There was one move called something about a willow tree which was so much fun... Oh Ceilidh, you rock.
