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.”
