Sorbie Wedding

THE first recorded wedding took place at the historic Sorbie Tower recently.

Kirkcudbright bride Pauline Whitelaw’s father used to work at Sorbie Creamery and visited the tower regularly. Pauline read an article about the Old Place of Sorbie and contacted Warden Stephen Hanna to enquire about the possibility of the ceremony.

The Hannay Clan Chief, Professor David Hannay, piped the bride up to the tower to meet her bridegroom, Colin Miller, inside the Great Hall, where their witnesses were waiting along with some of the Hannay Clan members.

The humanist service was carried out by Gerry Douglas Scott who splits her time between Glasgow and Wigtown where she is also part owner of Reading Lassies. The Clan were delighted that the Stewartry couple chose Sorbie Tower for their special day and wishes them every happiness for the future.

The Clan welcomes enquiries for wedding or other events. Anyone who may be interested can visit the Tower on Sunday May 29th, when the Clan are holding an Open Day as part of their Annual Clan Gathering where Clan members from around the globe visit the ancient seat of their Clan.
