The wedding of Mary Ann Tainsh and Wiliam Morton

THE COUPLE: Mary Ann is 50 and a housewife from Stenhousemuir, and William Morton (63) has his own timber and slate business. The newlyweds live in Stenhouse-muir.

HOW THEY MET: The couple first met 23 years ago. He was a customer at the Tam Bain pub where Mary Ann was the manager.

THE PROPOSAL: William had planned on tying the knot during a holiday in Hawaii to celebrate Mary Ann’s birthday last year. However, after a paperwork mix up, they decided to get married in Scotland instead.

THE WEDDING: The wedding was held at Dunblane Hydro on Valentine’s Day this year. There were 50 guests for the ceremony and around 100 in the evening. The couple had a great time and said the day ran pretty much to plan. Highlights from the day include getting married and relaxing with a party afterwards.

THE WEDDING PARTY: Mary Ann’s bridesmaids were her daughter Stephanie Morton (13), her niece Gemma Gibson (22) and William’s grand-daughters Mandy (16) and Charley (6) Morton. The best man was Alexander Gibson.

THE DRESS: Mary Ann loved her off-white halterneck dress. She bought it at CKS Bridal but added some of her own touches to it. She said that after she had seen the dress, she couldn’t get away from it because she knew what she could do with it.

THE HONEYMOON: The newlyweds didn’t manage to get away after the wedding due to illness, but are hoping to get away at some point in the future.

THANKS: Special thanks to Dunblane Hydro, Brian Muldoon Photography and family and friends.
