Message from Duncan: A Wedding in the Light House garden – and some photos of the garden after it was manicured this morning by a team from the Church.

What an unbelievably challenging week it has been for anyone planning a wedding or in my case, officiating at one. The guidance has been changing all week. It became clear as the week progressed that a wedding in the church was going to be problematic in terms of adhering to the guidelines being given by the government. At 6pm last night we decided to have the wedding service in the garden. The reception had already been postponed to a later date.

At 8am this morning, a group of volunteers moved in and transformed the garden in the space of just over 2 hours. The wedding took place at 2pm with the guests being able to share in the wedding in a manner which was consistent with the guidelines and social spacing. Thank you to everyone who pitched in this morning to make a wedding in beautiful sunshine possible. Congratulations to Bill and Mairi, the first couple ever to be married in the Lighthouse garden.
