wedding wednesday: the scottish traditions we incorporated into our wedding

Although neither myself nor my husband is Scottish, we have lived for three years (my husband for four) in a little fishing village on the Scottish coast. Scotland is very much our home: it's where we live and work and would one day like to raise a family.
