A Grove of trees in the Scottish Highlands
We love each other We love trees

Katriona Hill and Finn Romanes grove

Our relationship took root in and around Inverness.
What better way to celebrate our lifelong commitment to each other
than to plant trees to help regenerate the amazing Highland landscape,
to offset some of the carbon expense of the wedding
and to give us an excuse to keep revisiting the Northern wilds?
We would be very grateful for any contribution towards a patch of forest
that we (and you!) can visit and watch mature as we grow old.

Lots of love from Finn and Katriona.XX
