Jonathan & Susan Scarr.

Weddings are such great fun. Weddings always mark a moment of reflection, be it if you are attending as a guest, or whether if you are more deeply connected to the couple. Weddings are defining, memorable, melancholic, alcoholic, touching, beautiful, romantic, traditional, unrelentingly human.

I’ve known Jon for close to four years now, spent about a year seeing him on a daily basis, as we share the same working space. We got drunk together, we’ve debated the wide, the ridiculous, the mundane over several lunch hours, and we’ve rubbed shoulders on the basketball court many a time.

I was elated, fortunate and immeasurebly humbled to have had the chance to witness Jon and Susan’s marriage. The ceremony was fantasy, it was pure bliss and it was resplesdent. We gathered, initially under the threat of a stormy afternoon, at Pettycur Beach in Kinghorn, Scotland. The jitters were not just butterflies, we were shivering a little in the breeze. As momentum built, as the witnesses arrived en masse, as we settled to the blue seats slowly sinking into the sand, the bag pipes began its rhythmic march, and as the groom and his merry ushers and his best man stood proudly, ready and waiting to receive the bride to be, we braced.

She arrived, she is beautiful, aglow in a glowing gown and then the heavens had to burst open, gracing the afternoon with warming rays of golden light. Jon shook the hand of the man who gave Susan away.

One last embrace. For me, the moment occurred right at this point of the ceremony, as Jon & Susan prepare to become Husband & Wife, I noticed Jon furrowing his brows, controlling his emotions, folding his lips and fighting to contain his tears of joy.

Jon & Susan, quite literally tie the knot, scooped soil into a common bucket of life and became Wife & Husband.

As the night worn on, I reflected over my second dinner of nips, tatties, stovies and haggis. I felt fortunate, tearful, inspired, happy and a little drunk. I thought of my life, my love, my parents, my brother, my mistakes, my triumphs, my friends, my career, my ever expanding waistland and played a love song in my head. As I watch the guests loosen their ties, discard the high heels and bust their buns on the hardwood, I broke a smile.

    I was googling people from work for an application form (weird, I know) and decided to google myself, just to see what happened. Well, luckily for me your blog came up on the first page and I read it for the first time. It’s really lovely, as are your comments on the day, I’m so pleaed you thought so much of it. Jon and I will be starting to do our wedding album and would be delighted if you would allow us to use some of your pictures, I think for them to be clear we may need a copy rather than take from the blog, would you be able to burn us a DVD please? See you in a few weeks!!

    I’ve learned some important things as a result of your post. I would also like to mention that there can be situation that you will obtain a loan and don’t need a cosigner such as a Federal government Student Support Loan. However, if you are getting that loan through a standard finance company then you need to be made ready to have a co-signer ready to allow you to. The lenders can base any decision using a few elements but the biggest will be your credit worthiness. There are some loan companies that will additionally look at your job history and decide based on that but in many instances it will depend on your score.

    Visit one of the links provided: Hip Hop Music Lyrics

    engineering experts have combining their effort into shrinking
    the size of recording gadgets, their ultimate aim
    for now is to squeeze everything into laptops and hence some specialized laptop models have been produced specifically for music production industry.
