The Gillies Family Ceilidh

My friend Shona is very family orientated and so it was such a pleasure to be invited to her family's '150+ Ceilidh' They were celebrating both parents turning 60 and her sister, Kirsty turning 30. Shona was the +!!
Shona, her Mum, Patsy sister, Kirsty and her Dad, Fergus giving a lovely speech.

The second half of the evening everyone was up doing some Scottish Country Dancing- I sat out the Dashing White Sergent as I was worn out!! It's energetic stuff!!

Jenny, Shona and I all used to work in the Student Marketing Team for Red Bull. It was lovely to catch up with Jenny and met her lovely boyfriend. Kirsty and Shona Gillies

Lots of twirling on the dance floor!

At the end everyone, as is traditional, sang Auld Lang Syne... it was such a lovely evening and Shona's family had put so much effort into welcoming everyone and the food was amazing!!

I came across thsi record of our family "150+" ceilidh quite by chance and was delighted both by your comments and on seeing the great pictures - you captured the essence of what for us was a magic event. Many thanks, Fergus
