“On the other side of the world,
you pass the moon to me
like a loving cup,
or a quaich,
I roll you the sun….”
Extract from Carol Ann Duffy’s beautiful poem, World.
Today marked my first ever Elopement Ceremony. It was a great honour to be part of Rose and Adam’s intimate and beautiful ceremony at the sumptuous Prestonfield House in Edinburgh.
Rose and Adam’s world-encompassing partnership has already taken them on many wonderful adventures together and their wedding was no exception. Originally from America, they travelled to Edinburgh from Thailand to enjoy a private and deeply meaningful ceremony on a crisp December day blessed by glorious sunshine. After which they are heading to Skye to explore some of the most beautiful wild places in the world. A perfect beginning to married life…
It was my great pleasure to be part of your ceremony, Rose and Adam – thank you for inviting me to be your Wedding Celebrant. In the words of the Celtic blessing chosen for today, ‘May you know nothing but happiness from this day forward.’
