I went to a dinner/evening reception at TNPC a couple of weeks ago following the marriage some friends. Everything was well planned and organised. Almost as soon as I arrived I had a lovely wee glass of champagne in my hand and was ready for what was to be a lovely meal. The dinner melted away into a ceilidh quite seemlessly - even though the whole hall had to be turned around for the later guests. It was the perfect way to celebrate their marriage in Scottish style!
