The groom wore a kilt! A real kilt, custom made and shipped from Scotland. It arrived literally days before the wedding, to the great relief of both the bride and groom. I learned a new word at this wedding: sporran. It’s the leather pouch that hangs from the belt of a man wearing a kilt. They’ll tell you it takes the place of pockets, but let’s be honest, it’s a man-purse. Josh sported his sporran with aplomb and panache!
As you’ll see, the rest of the wedding was equally as charming as (I obviously think) the kilt was. The enchanting sound of the bagpipes and the traditional handfasting ceremony which used woolen tartan strips to tie Lisa and Josh’s hands brought the Scottish theme to life. Really, the whole day oozed comfort, creativity and charm. Take a look at the photos, you’ll see what I mean.
