Drumtochty Castle Wedding

Grant and Emma booked up Jiggered Ceilidh Band for their wedding at the stunning Drumtochty Castle– access for the band uniquely was via a window! The couple had done their homework before choosing Jiggered and Grant had followed our regular post-gig blogs and assured us that we wouldn’t be disappointed by the buffet (he’d noticed a thread running through them, and wanted to avoid getting slammed like the now infamous Vegi-gate). The bacon rolls and cake were excellent, Grant and Emma. Thanks!

The night went well- the massive room allowed us to really crank up the volume and blast out the mix of ceilidh tunes, Scottish songs and specific covers that Grant and Emma had requested. At half time, we were treated to a performance from a mini pipe band, featuring among others Grant, his dad and his brother!

It was a friendly crowd- a few chatted to us at various points. One youngster, who attends Macduff Primary, made my night when she told me that her favourite subject at school is Maths.

Highlight of the journey home was our conversation with a minibus driver. Roll window down. Look in disgust. Roll window up. Feel free to use this technique to diffuse obnoxious, unwarranted road rage. Works a charm.

Well done to Emma who, like a true trooper, put on a great show despite feeling rough and sleeping through the entire journey to and from the castle. Hats off to you Emma.

Merry Christmas to all Jiggered friends and fans 🙂
