Marie and Barrie were married in a religious service in a church that the bride attended whilst she was growing up. The minister was the father of one of the bridesmaids, and Marie had known him since she was 14. This made it a really personal and sentimental service. The couple also had a ‘champagne and love letter’ ceremony, which was a new concept to many of their guests.
Marie was given away by her big brother Jamie, as a local 18 year old girl called Rebecca McDonald sang an acapella version of Breisleach, a Gaelic song by Capercailie.
After Marie and Barrie exchanged rings – hers from Mr Harold & Son, his from H. Samuel, they moved on to the Skye Gathering Hall for their reception. The local village hall held a lot of good memories for Marie, and it was the only venue she wanted and looked at.
