Wick v Brechin

Massive game in Wick today with Academy meeting SFL side Brechin City. A superb display of passing football almost saw a giant killing act by the Highland League side, who led 4-2 late in the game before being pegged back in the latter stages. A great atmosphere in the ground from the huge support certainly helped the home side, who showed a huge commitment and effort throughout the game. Jim Duffy's side will be very relieved that they are still in the cup after being outplayed by the Wick side. I was covering the game for a few papers today, so being on crutches it was tricky to get everything they all needed. Thanks to my apprentice for the day Ally, for his help!

Lynne and Graeme, Thurso wedding

Another local wedding this time. Graeme Gunn and Lynne MacPherson, of Thurso, were married at the Weigh Inn Hotel, on another very nice October afternoon. We had a great time, and the morning was very relaxed, even including a bride and bridesamid playing Twister! We went to Thurso Castle for the photographs after the ceremony, which was good. I used to do loads there but not so much recently.

Tulloch Castle wedding

Okay, so this was the shortest notice wedding I have ever done. I got an emergency call from Margaret the evening before this one, asking if I could step in to cover a wedding she was scheduled for. It was weird turning up at the venue, Tulloch Castle, Dingwall having had no contact with the couple, but it actually meant there was less pressure, as the expectations were different, as they didn't know me either and were just grateful that I could cover it. It was a stunning day, with sunshine (I don't mind sunshine in October), and we had a great time. I think Donna and Angus had a good time as well, and we had a load of fun.
I had Angus Mackay helping out for the day, so thanks to him yet again.
