    Courtney and Aaron's Wedding at Glenshee Kirk

    We were delighted to be one of the few people to witness the small and intimate wedding of Aaron and Courtney, who had travelled all the way from Australia with only a handful of close family and friends to get married in the country where they had first met.

    After having to stop to ask a local where the local church was (to which he replied "there's only 3 houses and 1 church, I doubt you'll miss it") we arrived at the tiny (thankfully heated) church. Seated on the balcony, we were in a prime spot to witness the event, and played a selection of music handpicked by the couple.

    Luss Parish Church and Cameron House Hotel.

    It was an unusually early start for us on 11th of June. The ceremony was due to start at 1130am and we had arranged a rehearsal slot with Antonio the singer beforehand. Bleary eyed we set off! After a few attempts we managed to turn down the correct street in Luss to reach the church - one of those ‘I can see it but how do I get to it’ situations - and we got very cosy with the organist in a very small space at the rear of the church. The church looked even more beautiful than usual with spectacular flower arrangements and lots and lots of petals scattered all over the floor.
