Earlshall Castle in Fife was a unique location for Fiona & Karl’s wedding, made possible through Karl’s RAF connections. The castle is, as I understand it, the private home of a very senior officer retired from the Netherlands air force made available to the couple by special arrangement. It was a beautiful, sunny day with uniformed colleagues adding to the atmosphere.
After the ceremony, and photographs of the couple during the reception, we stopped off briefly at the famous 18th fairway of the Old Course in St Andrews before arriving for dinner and dancing at the officer’s mess of RAF Leuchars where the food was plentiful and the drinks very cheap. It wasn’t long Oksana Kuklina (assisting on second camera) and I had a glimpse behind the curtain of exactly how the armed forces like to unwind when off duty, and can testify that they play as hard as they work. No holds barred great fun!
