My (now) wife and I were living together for 7 years in Australia, she decided that she wanted to do a tour through Europe, so I said that I'd only do that if we go married in Scotland whilst we were over there. Our only common ancestory is Scottish (both paternal grandmothers came from Scotland Trenent & Muirkirk). So we got married at Traiquir house with the heirs to the scottish throne as our witnesses. Took about 2 weeks to organise the whole thing (over a period of months), and was really good, alhough we had no other family or friends present.
We came back to Australia for our honeymoon and have been on it ever since.
Please note I said "on it" as opposed to "at it"
