David and Rhona’s Wedding at DoubleTree Dunblane Hydro

David and Rhona chose to have their wedding at the stunning DoubleTree Dunblane Hydro for several reasons, but it was Rhona’s daughters Eilidh and Meghan who had the final say in choosing this venue - they fell in love with it instantly as they thought it looked like a castle. They certainly were princesses for the day!

The unique atmosphere of David and Rhona’s ceremony was instantly created when Rhona made her entrance to the beautiful ‘Darling I Do’ from ‘Shrek Forever After’, sung by her good friend Kirsty. 

Let's have a listen!

Kirsty also sang Adele's 'Make You Feel My Love’ during the ceremony and Emeli Sande's ‘Next To Me’ for David and Rhona’s exit.

David and Rhona had a handfasting as they exchanged their vows of commitment – a Celtic tradition where the expression ‘Tying The Knot’ is said to originate.

The ceremony was sincere, emotional, joyful and fun! For me, one of the highlights was when Eilidh and Meghan each read a poem, which was a complete surprise to David!

When Elmo isn't ticklish
And Pooh Bear hates honey
When Tigger stops bouncing
And Goofy isn't funny

When Peter Pan can't fly
And Simba never roars
When Alice in Wonderland
Can't fit through small doors

When Dumbo's ears are small
And "Happily Ever After" isn't true
That's when I'll stop
Loving you

What's Micky without Minnie?
What's Tigger without Pooh?
What's Donald without Daisy?
What's Me without You?

Mum and David get married today
I'd like to help them on their way
So here's some special advice from me
To help them with our family

Keep our house filled with laughter
Let's have fun forever after
Keep the cupboard filled up with sweets
And give us girls lots of treats

Make sure you spend time together
To keep your happiness forever
Please spend lots of dosh on us
And then we won't make a fuss

But the most important thing for you
Is - show your love in all you do
Then however far Eilidh and I may roam
We know we'll always have a happy home

Thank you David and Rhona for sharing your fantastic photos, taken by friend Rachel Birch, and for this note: 

"Hi Fiona. Thank you so much for all you did on Saturday (and all the preparation beforehand!). Everyone has been telling us how much they enjoyed the ceremony and how lovely and natural you were in conducting it - comments we wholeheartedly agree with!

You were a complete star and we just loved how personal you made everything. Thank you too for all your help with the surprise poems by the girls!

Honestly Fiona - we just can't thank you enough. Your input made our ceremony so special."
