The reception will be held at The Wayfarers Restaurant in Croftamie. Croftamie is a small village, and the venue is on the right hand side as you head North. A map can be found here Details of how to get to and from the reception venue are available on the transport page.
The daytime reception will follow shortly after the end of the ceremony at around 14:00, with a glass of Lindenlaub cremant we brought from Dorlisheim, France, last summer. This is followed by a 3 course meal interspersed with speeches.
In order to compromise between Scottish and Danish traditions, the first bottle of white and red wine on each table will be provided by us. What you choose to drink thereafter is your own choice. The Wayfarers bar is well stocked and reasonably priced. The evening reception will commence at 19:00 after the meal has finished. There will be a DJ who is well versed in popular music and traditional ceilidh music. He might even play a Danish tune or two.
There are several traditions that we though would be relevant, due to the two different cultures. As we think of them, they will be placed onto the traditions page.
The first dance will, as per Danish traditions, be danced by the bride and groom only, with everyone else slowly closing in on them. This is in order for the men to cut the tips of the grooms socks off (don’t worry, they will new and clean) and for the ladies to tear a piece of the bride’s veil. After this everyone are invited to join in on the dance floor.
There will also be a light buffet for evening snacks later on in the evening before we all head back to Glasgow.
