THE BRIDAL PARTY: Heather’s chief bridesmaid was sister-in-law Alex Ferguson and her other bridesmaid was friend Geraldine Riddell. Heather was given away by her son Stewart Ferguson. Barry’s best men were his two sons Robbie and James.

THE HONEYMOON: The happy couple are still hoping to have their honeymoon to Florida in September.

THANKS: Barry and Heather would like to thank the close family members who made their day special given the circumstances.
