The day of Paz & Stephen's Wedding fast approached, and as the day got closer things were getting more and more wintry - especially in Fife were we live. A few days before the Wedding, it was looking very unlikely that I was going to be able to get across Scotland across the Central Belt, and into Ayrshire for the Wedding. News reports like this didn't help my confidence either:
snow snow snow (news report)
So the day before the Wedding arrived, and the weather was just getting worse and worse! And I just had to get to this Wedding. As luck would have it, my good friend Iain from Thame Freight (in Oxfordshire) was dropping off some office chairs at the Museum in Perth, next on his route, was Glasgow and the Saltcoats - virtually passing door to door! An amazing co-incidence, and an opportunity not to be lost! So within 10 minutes, I had my bags packed, cameras and gear all ready and was on the road!

The roads looked really snowy as we set out on the road
and things got whiter!!
the sun set, as we travelled down the motorway.
But the roads were getting clearer the further west we got.
We made it to the edge of the snow storm, and to see blue sky was beautiful and amazing. It had felt like it had been days since we had seen it! I loved the contrast here between the greys and snow at the edge of the storm and the beauty of the skies and sunset:
and seeing the sun on the mountains - it was breath takingly beautiful!
and so with the sun set, and Glasgow behind us, we made it to Dalgavern House Hotel. Thank you SO much Iain!!!
So with the wintry drive behind me, I set off to spend some time with the Bride & Groom and some other Wedding guests - who had travelled over from Ireland earlier that day.
Check back soon to hear about their special day :)
