You are invited to the
Fisher - Price Wedding
Saturday 21st November 2020:
Ceremony at 1:45 pm (Children welcome)
Comrie Croft, Crieff, Perthshire, Scotland
We are looking forward to seeing all of you and hope that you can make it to our special day.
When is it: The ceremony itself will be at 1.45 pm Saturday 21st November 2020 - Please wear whatever you feel comfortable in, but it is the start of Winter in Scotland so a warm jacket as a back-up is advised!
On Friday 20th, we have the accommodation from 4pm, till Sunday morning- so lots of time for pre-Wedding fun, (and post wedding hangover recovery for some….). Friday will be setting up the venue and an informal meal and drinks in the accommodation block on site with guests that can make it.
On Saturday, our wedding will be quite relaxed in nature. We hope to have the ceremony outside, in the courtyard, but the evening festivities will be indoor. We have booked a Ceilidh band, (if you don’t know what a Ceilidh is, it has been accurately described as being part dance part fight - so practical shoes please, (no-one needs a stiletto in the eye!) There will also be an eclectic mix of other entertainment - more on that on the formal invites! After 11pm there will be Whisky and cheese in The Steadings accommodation.
On Sunday, on-site checkout is 10:30am, but we can stay in The Steadings till Noon.
RSVP: Please let us know if you would like to come, if you would like to stay on-site, if you’d like one night (Sat) or both nights and if you’d be up for sharing with your close friends/family.
Please let us know by the 30th April 2020.

6/6 Dicksonfield, Edinburgh, EH7 5ND, Scotland.
Travel: Comrie Croft (PH7 4JZ) is 1h 30 mins (62 miles) north west of Edinburgh on the A85. If you can, we suggest planning for a long weekend as it is a long way for many.
By Car: from Edinburgh the preferable route is the M90 to Perth and then the A85 or take the M9(A) past Sterling and then the A822. Free car parking on the site.
By Train: Edinburgh Waverly then change to Perth. From there a taxi/bus may be the best option, but Sunday would be limited (need booking).
By Air: the closest airports are Edinburgh and Dundee.
We understand this is quite a trek, hence the availability of two nights’ accommodation on-site and the long notice. Kids are welcome but we’d suggest treating the weekend as a holiday if you’re able.
WARNING: Taxis are not great in the area, but can be booked.
On-Site Accommodation: Comrie Croft has two blocks of self-catered, hostel-style shared accommodation, The Steadings (see here) and The Farm House (see here). There are also seven Scandinavian-style Katas on site for £99/night (see here).
There is space for 74 people on site. And we have this for Friday and Saturday nights with a small contribution of £25 per person per night, no charge for children, including breakfast (with prosecco on the morning of the wedding- because we start as we mean to go on!). There are a variety of rooms (3 to 8 bed etc), comprised mostly of bunk-beds.
For those super brave... there is also camping on-site (We know this isn't for everyone - but November may be mild).
On-Site Accommodation Payment:

Friday: Evening meal in The Steadings (approx 7.30 pm)
Saturday: Ceilidh Band (Scottish Dancing - very fun, see here), Improv Comedy, SPEECHES, possibly some Circus!
Sunday: Possibly some local walks, waterfalls, hills, forests.
What is a Ceilidh?
Danny Bhoy describes it as a half dance, half fight (here)... Which is..... pretty accurate!
It's inclusive, (you don't have to know someone well in Scotland to throw them around!), there will be a caller for the moves, we will choose fun, simple dances suitable for all. There will be people attending that know the dances too. And.. we will let it get fast!
Lets put it this way- you might want to sink a few before you try it, but you will get Ceildh fever fast!
Our band is The Scotch Bonnets here...
