One shouldn’t laugh but it is amazing how often it is the groom that breaks down during the important bits in the ceremony.
I had not conducted a wedding at the Glen Golf Club, I had played golf there so I was a bit confused as to where the ceremony might be held. Imagine my surprise when I arrived to find the seats set up on the sandy beach opposite the clubhouse. They were so lucky. It was a lovely day, a bit breezy so not easy projecting into the wind but even in September in Scotland, it could rain.
Theirs was a lovely story of slowly falling love having met at work. The trigger to the romance was an email sent to Lisa from Craig. I think he may have been drinking because this is the email as I read it out at the ceremony:

Lisa’s replied by text to the number and Craig replied: “who is this?”. Lisa was more than a bit upset but they did meet up for a date and so the romance was born.
So, we laughed, Craig cried, we hugged, Craig’s nephew entertained us on the guitar and a great time was had.
