Pamela and Davie Tait

7 August 1999 
Powfowlis Manor Hotel near Falkirk,  Scotland

My husband Davie Tait and I were married on 7 August 1999 at the Powfowlis Manor Hotel near Falkirk in Scotland. We are both Scottish and loved the thought of having a very Scottish wedding. I had the idea for my dress in my head and went along to a lady who is a designer and dressmaker in Fife, Scotland and described my idea to her. She sketched it for me and then made up the dress. The tartan is
Ancient Buchanan and the reason I chose it was simply because she suggested it would go with my colouring. My husband's tartan is Black Watch. We exchanged Celtic wedding rings and I gave out floral arrangements to my principal female guests finished off with a ribbon in the same tartan as my dress. My husband is a semi-professional musician and our wedding reception was one of the best nights of our lives as our friends provided the music. We had three different bands to entertain our guests, one of which was made up of my brother on bagpipes, my husband on guitar and his nephew on didgiridoo (which he had acquired on a tour of Oz), that was something to see and hear! The following day we headed to Ireland for our honeymoon in search of more fine music and the "craic".
