This was never going to be an ordinary wedding, that was obvious from the moment I met Lou & Pete. Their plans included an after-dinner ‘pub-quiz’, with each table at the wedding breakfast competing for exotic prizes and holding their evening reception in a museum, with the guests chauffeured to the venue in a original London bus. Everyone wants their wedding to be unique, and they certainly achieved that. They even managed to lay on spectacular weather, although as those who ventured outside found out, it was absolutely freezing!
The venue for the ceremony & meal was the magnificent Newbattle Abbey College, a stunning building inside and out, expertly run by events organiser Gill Hamilton for whom nothing was too much trouble. The food was provided by Lamberton Catering, with chef Robert Myler and his team producing a fabulous meal before the Red Bus Company drove everyone in their beautifully turned out 1962 Routemaster bus to the Scottish Mining Museum for the reception.
