Clare Wilson and Jan Zeschky   grove

Hello everyone, welcome to our wedding page!

As we said in our invitations, we've got our fair share of material goods. So instead we would like to ask you to help us do something a bit different: plant our own little forest.

We've both always loved the wild places of Scotland, the mountains, glens, forests, midges, June blizzards and all. So we feel that giving something back to this environment would make us very happy. Regenerating the native Caledonian forest is, without doubt, a worthwhile cause and one we hope you will join us in supporting.

Also, we hope one day soon we will take the opportunity to move to Canada, where Jan was born, and it would be nice to know we were leaving something for the Highlands - and that we will always have our own piece of the wilderness to visit (and you can visit too).

Later in the year we hope to take a 'hands-on' approach to this project by joining a Trees For Life working week. Naturally, you are all invited :-)

All your donations are very much appreciated!

Love from Clare and Jan.

P.S. Save your hippy jokes for the wedding.

Ihr Lieben alle!

Willkommen auf unserer Internet Hochzeitsseite!

In unseren Einladungen haben wir es ja schon erwhnt, da wir eigentlich alles haben, was so zum Haushalt gehrt. Deshalb mchten wir Euch fragen, ob Ihr uns bei einer anderen Sache helfen wollt, nmlich, unseren eigenen kleinen Wald zu pflanzen.

Wir lieben beide die unberhrte Natur in Schottland, die Berge, Tler, Wlder, Mcken, Schneegestber im Juni und was sonst noch dazu gehrt. Deshalb glauben wir, da es gut wre, wenn wir dieser wunderbaren Natur etwas zurckgeben knnten. Den uralten, kaledonischen Hochwald wieder aufzuforsten ist ohne Zweifel eine gute Sache und wir wrden uns freuen, wenn Ihr sie mit uns zusammen untersttzen wrdet.

Dazu kommt, da wir in nicht allzu weiter Ferne gerne nach Kanada, wo Jan geboren wurde, ziehen mchten. Es wre schn, wenn wir dann ein Stck von uns im schottischen Hochland zurcklassen knnten - ein Fleckchen Erde, das uns gehrt und das wir jederzeit besuchen knnen (Ihr brigens auch!)

Spter im Jahr hoffen wir, eine Woche mit dem Projekt "Trees for Life" zu verbringen, und werden dann versuchen, selber Hand anzulegen. (Natrlich drft Ihr alle dabei mitmachen!)

Wir freuen uns auf Eure Spendengeschenke.

Viel Glueck und Segenswuensche zu Eurer Hochzeit !!!

Nice idea, the trees! Really looking forward to the 5th and wish you both lots of happiness. Heather xx

Dear Jan and Clare, I wish both you and your trees a wonderful future! Best wishes, Martin

Dear Clare and Jan, This is such a lovely idea, now you can be old together and watch your trees grow. You can walk around holding hands and making doe-eyes at each other in your own little grove, embarrasing all the young people. You can tell them that in your day, all this was just fields. Now the highlands will be a little bit better, thanks to you. With all my best wishes that everything will be great forever, Love Sara
