After a week of boiling hot weather we were watching the forecast very carefully – rain and thunder were forecast! As always though we were extremely lucky and the sun shone from the beginning until the end of this magical day at Coo Cathedral in Aboyne. The ‘Cathedral’ is a grand and majestic old cow byre belonging to the castle. It is a stunning building with natural light flooding in from large windows all around.
Roma and Stephen are a super couple. The wedding was designed around elegance and simplicity as you will see from the photographs. The peace and tranquility in that vast space during the ceremony was felt by us all. The Minister had a wonderful sense of humor and caused much hilarity amidst the more serious moments. Afterwards all the guests poured out into sunshine with Pimms, laughter and delicious nibbles, a perfect setting for a summer wedding. There were games to play for the children and grown ups alike which the neighboring herd of cows thought very interesting! This gave us and the bridal party the chance to escape to the Castle grounds for photographs – have a look at this magnificent building with its beautiful gardens and stream running through.
We returned in time for everyone to sit down to a sumptuous meal provided by Hudson’s Catering and the speeches. Much hilarity was had by the fact that the best man was a best woman, and there was laughter all-round. The dancing was enthusiastically enjoyed by all and continued long into the warm and balmy night …….
Good luck to Roma and Stephen, we very much enjoyed sharing your wonderful day.
