Venue History: In former times the Dower House to Philiphaugh Estate, was built in 1751, not long after Covenanters and Royalists fought the bloody battle of Philiphaugh in 1645, a few yards from the now tranquil and peaceful lawns, flowers and woodlands amidst which the lovely old house lies. One of the original beams of the house is above the fireplace in the main lounge, carved with the date of the building.

Wedding Trivia:
The tradition of carrying one or more items that are "old", "new", "borrowed" and "blue" also comes from English. There is an old English rhyme describing the practice which also mentions a sixpence in the brides shoe. Something old, signifying continuity, could be a piece of lace, jewelry, or a grandmother's handkerchief. Something new, signifying optimism in the future, could be an article of clothing or the wedding rings. Something borrowed, signifying future happiness, could be handkerchief from a happily married relative or friend. Something blue, signifying modesty, fidelity and love, comes from early Jewish history. In early Biblical times, blue not white symbolized purity. Both the bride and groom usually wore a band of blue material around the bottom of their wedding attire, hence the tradition of "something blue". Originally the sixpence was presented to the bride by her future husband as a token of his love. Today, very often, it is the bride's father who places a coin in the brides shoe prior to leaving home for the church.
