Lesley met Charles, they fell in love and the rest, they say, is history….!!! They live near helensburgh, so deciding to keep things “local” they decided to get married at the Helensburgh Town Hall. After the wonderful ceremony by the Helensburugh Registrar we all went outside to the back of the Town Hall for group pictures, with the views overlooking the Clyde Estuary and the blazing sunshine.
Afterwards, and while all the guests made their way into town, the three of us then went to Rhu narrows for some photography. The tide was out, the sun was shining and we got some great pictures. After this we headed back to the Sugarboat, which is one of Helensburgh’s premier eateries. The Sugarboat is named after a ship that sank in the Clyde Estuary in the 1960’s and is clearly visible from helensburgh. Since then, although people have forgotten the ship’s name, they all remember that it was carrying sugar on the fateful day so the wreck is called the Sugarboat.
Anyway…. After cutting the cake, everyone sat down for the speeches and after the best man and Charles made their speeches, Lesley – not being one for tradition – also made a speech. The evening was started when Lesley and Charles made their first dance, but only after Lesley did bow to tradition and did a bouquet throwing to her female guests…
A lovely day for Lesley and Charles. One that was full of love, and sunshine, and the smiles from all their guests.
