Love is all a-round for pub regulars
Sarah and Chris get married in their local
Two loved- up Buddies called time on their single life – by heading down the aisle at their favourite pub.
Bride Sarah, 35, got hitched to husband Chris, 39, at Kennedys bar in Paisley.
The Paisley pair drank up alongside punters earlier this month in celebration of getting married after nearly 20 years of dating.
After tieing the knot at their local, the new Mrs Jones told the Express she wouldn’t have celebrated the happiest day of her life any other way.
Sarah said: “It is a very special place to us. It’s my local and Chris used to work on the door there.
“My wedding was the first one they’ve had there so that was a massive honour.”
Chris was suited and booted and Sarah looked radiant in a white dress.
The pair were joined by guests at Kennedys in Causeyside Street before moving onto Abercorn Bowling Club to enjoy dancing until the wee small hours.
The most important guests of all were the couple’s three children – Ellie, 19, Christopher, 15, and Lewis, 8 – and Sarah’s dad, who battled through poor health to walk his daughter down the aisle.
“It was great to have all my family there. All lassies dream of having their dad give them away.
“I have five big brothers and I’m my dad’s only daughter. It was important for us that we could do this together.”
The couple plan to honeymoon in Tunisia in November and say their wedding at Kennedys was the perfect start to their marriage.
Sarah said: “We are so grateful to everyone at Kennedys – especially Mags – who really pulled it out the bag. She is a great woman and we are so happy she let us celebrate in her pub.”
Bar manager Mags McCann said she was delighted to throw the reception for the happy couple.
She said: “We’ve never done anything like it before but it was really special. We did the room up all nice and they had around 25 guests for a sit down meal.
“It was great for the bar and for the town.”
She added: “Chris and Sarah are such a nice wee couple and it was great to give them a send off. We wish them all the best.”
