Wedding of the Week

The wedding of Kellyann Reid and Kris McLernon

THE COUPLE: Kellyann (21), from Falkirk, is a sales assistant at Argos, while Kris (24) from Bonnybridge is in the armed forces. The newlyweds are in the process of moving down south.

HOW THEY MET: The couple first met on the day Kellyann’s nephew was born in 2010. Kris is good friends with the baby’s father, Kellyann’s sister’s boyfriend, and he popped round to Kellyann’s parents’ house with a gift.

THE PROPOSAL: Kris proposed in July 2011. He was about to leave for Canada for three months and asked Kellyann to marry him before he left. She was completely surprised and accepted a temporary Haribo ring.

THE WEDDING: The wedding was held on April 6, 2013. The ceremony was held at Edinburgh Castle where 30 people watched the couple marry. An evening reception for 120 guests was held at the Inchyra Hotel. Kellyann said the whole day was brilliant.

THE WEDDING PARTY: Kellyann’s bridesmaids were friend Gemma O’Brien, her sister Louise Reid, and Kris’s sisters Abbie Young and Ciara McLernon. The best man was Kris’s brother Bradley, and the ushers were Andrew Petrie and Connor Young.

THE DRESS: Kellyann wore an A-line gown with diamontee detail on the bodice, the waist and the skirt.

THE HONEYMOON: The couple are moving to live in Oxford, so plan to go on honeymoon at a later date.

THANKS: Special thanks to both sets of parents, Angela and Andrew Reid and Stella and Alex McLernon, and to photographer Emma Gray.
