The bride says: I swore to Alie that I would not be late as he knew he may be nervous, so Dad and I made sure we left with plenty of time. The weather on the day was just amazing, really sunny. We had left in such good time we actually arrived early at the Castle, all the guests (and the groom!) were chatting outside!! The best man spotted my car and ushered Alie inside quickly, the guests soon followed. It was pretty close, but as the Castle was open as usual there must have been at least 60 tourists waiting and taking pictures when we arrived, which was an amazing experience. Also, Freyja MacNaugton was indispensable in helping me with my wedding planning – thank you Freyja!
