Pandas, penguins, tigers, statue elephants, ghostly spirits, Texans in kilts! Siobhan and Zak flew all the way over from Texas to marry at the idillic Mansion House, in the grounds of Edinburgh Zoo. Siobhan’s late grandfather used to work at the zoo, so there was a special connection.
I’m sure he even made his presence felt as Siobhan and Zak made their vows to one another! No joke! As Siobhan had almost everyone in tears with her most heartfelt of words to Zak, out of nowhere the biggest gust of wind shook and rattled the windows. Now I’m not a believer in spirits but this had me doubting myself!
The weather didn’t quite play ball with showers for most of the day. That didn’t matter to anyone and Siobhan and Zak still braved the elements to go say hi to the penguins! No Panda though! We did try but apparently you have to be super lucky to see them.
The most epic of parties was had at night with their own playlist blasting out the speakers. (personal favourite – Bruce Springsteen, I’m on fire!) Texans know how to party and were all up on the dance floor straight away – I think they may have been helped with the amount of Whisky they had at dinner!
A superb day, and such a pleasure to be part of. All the best Siobhan and Zak.
