High­est of praise

LET’S give credit where it’s due.

The splen­did staff at the registry of­fice in Ar­gyll and Bute went be­yond what could rea­son­ably be ex­pected of them when ap­proached by Rob Everitt, 36, and Re­becca Hold­stock, 29, from Dart­moor, who wanted to be mar­ried on the top of Ben More – the high­est moun­tain and only Munro on Mull.

Registrar Andrew Penny made the English cou­ple’s day by don­ning his hik­ing boots and all-weather gear and climb­ing the ben to of­fi­ci­ate at the cer­e­mony.

In the end, be­cause of the pre­vail­ing con­di­tions, the small wed­ding party – which was aug­mented by Sarah and John from Mull to act as wit­nesses – couldn’t reach the sum­mit but had got as high as a plateau 650m up, where the mar­riage was com­pleted.

Andrew told us the regis­trars’ motto is ‘It’s your day so we do it your way’. They cer­tainly lived up to it. Well done.
