Summary - A wedding held outdoors.

William Forbes recalls a wedding he attended where a procession led by a piper went from the bridegroom's house to the bride's. The minister married the couple in the garden. Very few couples were married in church when Mr Forbes was young. There was a big celebration afterwards, with dancing until the early hours of the morning. He has not heard of the ruidhle na bainnse danced by the bride and groom. He thinks the neighbours contributed food.
