Margaret had three bridesmaids. Her best friend Catherine, who also acted as Maid of Honour, her younger sister Marion, and her friend Annie who has been like a mum to Margaret since moving to England from her home in America 5 years ago. Margaret’s older sister Grace wasn’t a bridesmaid because she is an ordained priest and was instead able to help with the ceremony. Because she is American, she wasn’t legally allowed to perform marriages in the UK, but she led some of the vows, read the blessings, and celebrated communion.
Margaret took her bridesmaids to Monsoon and the girls chose very pretty silk, knee length green dresses with gold and pink detail on the empire line.
Margaret and Malcolm bought each bridesmaid a slightly different thank you gift for being an attendant on the day. A gold necklace for Marion, A soft pink fascinator for Catherine and a faux pearl necklace for Annie.
