Newmill and District Playgroup celebrate The Royal Wedding

Newmill and District Playgroup celebrated The Royal Wedding in style on Wednesday morning (16th May) with their own wedding. The older playgroup children each had their own roles of ‘Bride’, ‘Bridegroom’, ‘Best Man’, ‘Father of the Bride’ and ‘Bridesmaids’, while the younger children attended as Princes and Princesses along with very impressed family and friends. All children were wearing kilts, dresses and suits and had had their hair styled at playgroup as well as wearing beautiful button holes or holding miniature bouquets which had been made by one of the grandparents.

The wedding, which was organised by Gail Lawrence and Sarah Coull, took place at North Church and was conducted by Rev. Alastair Gray. As with many Scottish weddings the bridal party were piped in before taking part in the ceremony which included songs created by playgroup and sung by the children. A photographer was also present to capture all of those precious moments.

Following on from the ceremony family and friends were invited back to Newmill Village Hall for the reception where they were met with a beautifully decorated venue including black seat covers with emeral green bows, champagne flutes, a Say It With Cupcakes wedding cake and a buffet as well as cupcakes and shortbread. Following on from a thankyou speech by Gail, the ‘Bride’ and ‘Bridegroom’ cut the cake before everyone tucked into the beautiful buffet and cakes.

Every detail had been thought of and a lovely morning was had by all children and guests. Now it just remains to be seen if Prince Harry and Meghan Markle can match Newmill and District Playgroup.
