Imagine having Robert Burns at your wedding day or at the reception - brought back from the 18th century to surprise the happy couple with the recital of a few romantic poems.
Robert Burns alias ‘Donald Kay’ will be dressed in full 18th century period costume complete with boots, book of poems, quill and of course a rose for the happy couple.
He’ll enter the room after the speeches, being introduced by the last person making a speech - normally the best man.
He’ll then walk round and through the seated guests, shaking the hands of some of the male guests and kiss the back of the ladies hands, with a smile and then making his way up to the top table.
He’ll then thank the best man for inviting him back to the 21st century and then introduce himself to the happy couple, congratulating them on tying the knot, and explaining what’s about to happen. He integrates the couple’s names into poems straight from the heart.
After he has done this he finishes with asking the pair to hold hands saying to the bride that this poem is from the groom to herself, and recites ‘my love is like a Red Red Rose’, then bows and wishes the couple a happy life and asking everyone to enjoy the rest of the evening.
This can last from 10 to 20 minutes dependent how the number of guests, the seating and how the tables are arranged.
