Hur­ri­cane winds can’t ruin Kenny and Sa­man­tha’s wed­ding day

The Arran Banner - - News -

A de­ter­mined cou­ple re­fused to let foul weather ruin their wed­ding day on Ar­ran, de­spite be­ing caught up in near-hur­ri­cane force winds dur­ing storm Ophe­lia.

New­ly­weds Kenny and Sa­man­tha Grib­ble of Kil­marnock, who have been com­ing to Ar­ran for more than 10 years, tied the knot on Mon­day Oc­to­ber 16 just as the named storm was gath­er­ing im­pe­tus and which would later blow off roof tiles across the is­land, cause mi­nor flood­ing in San­nox and bring down an old beech tree in Lam­lash.

Keen to en­sure that there were no is­sues with ferry dis­rup­tions block­ing de­liv­ery of wed­ding goods, the only items the cou­ple brought with them were the kilts and the wed­ding dress and ev­ery­thing else came from Ar­ran. Hair­styl­ist Laura Mil­li­gan cre­ated the hur­ri­cane de­fy­ing hair­styles, Eleanor’s Flow­ers de­liv­ered the flo­ral bou­quets with­out a hitch and the favours con­tained Ar­ran cheese, Lochranza minia­tures, coast­ers from Ar­ran Graph­ics and can­dles from Ar­ran Sense of Scot­land.

Mrs Grib­ble said: ‘Guests were vary­ing de­grees of green when ar­riv­ing off the ferry, how­ever, they loved Ar­ran and said the back­drop was amaz­ing. The wild weather just added to the oc­ca­sion.’
