Donna and Penny’s Civil Partnership at Aikwood Tower earlier this summer, was a joyful and colourful occasion.

Their ceremony in the Laich Hall was conducted by Humanist Celebrant,  Susan Douglas-Scott and Scottish Borders Registrar Pam Douglas and was a wonderful mix of warmth, humour and poignancy.

Donna and Penny had a beautiful colour scheme which they wove into their invitations and flowers.

Donna and Penny met through their love of cycling and the table plan was based on their cycling experiences in many countries.  They also raise money for charitable causes and are off soon to Vietnam to raise money for the Carerers Trust.  It’s a fantastic cause.  Check out Carers Trust if you’d like to help.
