There is a lovely client of mine who is a dermatoligist and her husband to be (at the time) is a doctor and she was so kind as to invite Paul and I to her wedding which took place recently at Blairquhan Castle, Ayrshire, Scotland,which is a fantastic setting for a wedding venue.
It is true when they say that profession’s sticks together, as amongst the guests were 32 doctors, 8 accountants (father of the bride is an accountant) and 4 dentists (brides brother is a dentist) attending the wedding.
The food was absolutely superb the drink flowed like a fountain, luckily for me Paul was the elected driver, and the company was exhilarating.
The most touching part of the wedding day was, when contrary to the normal formal speeches, the bride stood and thanked her parents and a number of the guests for making her day so special.
I was dumbstruck when she mentioned my name and thanked me for making her skin look so radiant and beautiful. It was quite over whelming to think that a dermatologist was thanking me!
By now, you must have realised, that I have a passion for skincare and to be thanked so publicly for what I do and amongst such distinguished people was a great honour. Sometimes you are rewarded when you least expect it. Robert Burns wrote and I quote
“O wad some Power the giftie gie us
To see oursels as ithers see us!”
It is always an eye opener when you get an inkling of how others perceive you.
Her gift to me was a lovely end to a beautiful day.
