Jumping the Besom by Angie Latham

Here is a picture from our recent Wedding at Eilean Donan Castle , Scotland, on September 6th 2011.

The ceremony was full of old Celtic traditions and customs, the last of which was the ‘jumping of the besom’ which symbolises us leaping into our new lives together as a married couple.
The broomstick was handmade for us and everyone of our friends and family gave us little charms and trinkets to hang on it for good luck.

if you would like to see more then there is a slideshow of the best pics below on youtube:


Most of the photographs were taken by our good friend and professional photographer Chris Roberts, based in Northern Ireland. his website is below:


Hope you enjoy looking . We had a super day…..and for the eagle eyed amongst you, you may recognise at least three other Redbubble members amongst the guests!
