>Renewal of Vows, Ormiston Parish Church

>I really must get into the habit of updating this blog much more frequently. It’s terrible that I leave it so long between messages.

A couple of weeks ago, I had the very great pleasure of being in attendance for Hazel and Michael renewing their vows.

The ceremony was beautiful and very poignant, given the particular reason they had decided to renew their vows. I must confess I shed a tear, during a phrase the Vicar had used. The was a lovely atmosphere as well as some laughter as the couple’s youngest family member entertained his audience from the alter…. much to the Vicar’s amusement.

After the ceremony, the couple were surprised by one of their guests, who had arranged to have doves released. Unfortunately, I don’t think the guest realised that the bride has an aversion to birds….. something which is evident in some of the photographs. (we have since chuckled about this….. it was a lovely thought though.)

After our group shots, we made our way to a hotel in Inveresk where the guests mingled. A few bridal party shots were captured in the garden and I waited a while until the couple said a few words to their guests.

Thankyou for making me a part of your day……. here is to a healthy and happy rest of your lives together!
