april & robin’s clachtoll bay wedding

We found out Monika lived nearby and lots of good feedback from other couples as we live so far apart we had to email. She gave us good advice for our big day. Monika has a lovely manner and nothing was too much bother. We made our vows to suit our Happy life together and Monika was great and kept a wee secret I slipped in to make my now husband laugh. We met up with her and were welcomed into her home. She kept in touch with us checking everything was OK. On the day it was perfect. The weather was a bit wild but love conquers all. We laughed and cried during the ceremony. It was written out perfectly to reflect our love for each other

April & Robin’s Highland wedding at the Salmon Bothy at Clachtoll Bay was a celebration of love later in life and making a wedding not just about close family & friends, but including a wider circle of friends. Clachtoll campsite is the place where they spent their first holiday as a couple a few years ago, and they love to return regularly. We got to meet during their holiday a year before the wedding date and made some early plans, keeping in touch via emails and calls through the next 12 months, with their ceremony slowly brewing and taking shape until we got a chance to make some final touches in the days before the ceremony when we could meet again. I got a taste of the growing wedding excitement at Clachtoll long before the couple’s arrival as various of their local friends started preparations. 
Some weather woes kept us all on our toes on the morning of the ceremony, but the changeable Highland weather delivered a dry afternoon and as always during a ceremony, the couple’s joy was all that mattered. Witnessed by family, friends (and two alpacas) a moving handfasting ritual and honest, caring and funny promises to each other were at the core of the ceremony and after all formal parts were concluded everybody piled into the characterful Salmon Bothy to witness April & Robin drinking out of the quaich, before toasting the newly wed couple for the first time!
One of those weddings that I will always fondly remember for being extra special…
