The dress that Rose wore for her wedding was one she had made herself; the dress made from a silver silk material had a low neckline and was gathered at the waist to show off her slender figure. The dress was six inches above the knee to show off her legs.

Moira helped with Rose’s hair as she used to be a hairdresser before Andrew bought the guest house. Moira loaned her a pair of silver sandals.

Downstairs Andrew was seeing to George who had borrowed his tartan suit.

He ate some toast and a boiled egg for his breakfast before the taxi came.

Andrew wore his Stewart tartan kilt and full regalia as he stepped into the taxi.

“Have you got the rings Andy?

 “Yes, they’re in my sporran.” 

“All set then lads said the taxi driver as he pulled away and headed to the old blacksmiths shop famed for its weddings.

Rose wore a braid of flowers in her hair and a small bouquet of freshly cut flowers that two service waitresses had made for her from the flowers in the garden.

She got a surprise when she got outside because George had asked Andrew to see if he could get a horse and glass carriage to take Rose.

The carriage was yellow with black wheels and the black horse had yellow plumes tied to the bridle; it was beautiful.

“Are you ready then hen asked Moira?

“Ready as I’ll ever be she said the footman helped Rose into the carriage then Moira sat next to her.

“I wish my mother and father had been alive to see this day said Rose as the carriage moved off. Everyone in the street came out to wave to the bride which she thought was lovely.

Rose was more nervous this time than she was at her first wedding which was just a registry office wedding. She remembered nothing about the service apart from saying “I do! This time she would remember everything as George had made it so special.

 

Andrew and George waited outside and there was a wedding in progress they would be next if Rose arrived before ten o’clock.

Andrew was smoking a cigarette and he could have taken one quite easily but decided not to. He kept checking his watch every five minutes. Andrew went outside to look down the street. He put up his thumb as he saw the carriage coming.

George let out as gasp of air then straightened his self up as the carriage pulled onto the gravelled pathway.

When Rose stepped out in the dress she had made Andrew took some photos for them.

“You look beautiful Rose said George as she joined him outside. The other wedding had now finished and they were having photos taken as George and Rose went inside to make their vows.
