What is your most memorable wedding?

Seriously too many to choose from, I will single out a wedding on the Isle of Mull, it was too wet for the planned Beach wedding. So I was given directions to a roofed viewing platform in a forest overlooking a waterfall. I arrived in time to meet the groom and children and helped dress the new location. The wedding was so unique and intimate in a magical setting. Only the Bride, Groom, 3 children, the celebrant, photographer and myself present. A wee reminder of how you lucky we are invited to be part of such an important and emotional life event.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
