Krystina Becker and Colin Robertson's wedding/partnership grove

A grove of trees in the Scottish Highlands

Ironing board, knives, pots and pans, bed sheets.... all very nice wedding presents. But we're doing it a bit differently - we're inviting you to give us a tree! Scotland was once covered in beautiful forests however only a little is left. By giving a small donation you're helping to replant these trees.

We're already planning to visit our grove of trees and we're looking forward to watching the trees grow old with us!

Bgeleisen, Messer, Tpfe und Pfannen, Bettbezge...sind alles schne Hochzeitsgeschenke. Aber wir machen es ein wenig anders - wir laden Euch ein, einen Baum zu stiften. Schottland war einst voll schner Wlder, doch davon ist nur noch wenig erhalten. Mit einer kleinen Spende helft Ihr, neue Bume zu pflanzen.

Wir plannen schon, unseren kleinen Wald zu besuchen und wir freuen uns darauf die Bume mit uns alt werden zu sehen!

You have decided to spend the rest of your lives together. Congratulations! Your relationship will grow and change over time - each phase having its own fascination. As an experienced womaniser (I had one proper girlfriend and we are still happily married today) I cannot hold back with a long list of advises: - always respect each other as individuals and enjoy the differences in personalities - give each other space to develop - take lots of time to be together and most importantly - talk to each other about everything - listen - with your ears and hearts I wish you all the best for your journey - may you be happy and healthy. Hanspeter (and in spirit also from Katharina) Dear Tina and Colin, wish you will see your trees very often and then joyfully think of your marriage! All the best for both of you!

Your grove of trees

The trees in this grove will be carefully planted in protected sites in the Scottish Highlands where they will create homes for wildlife and forests for the future.
