Largs RNLI’s Jennifer ties the knot
Thankfully the pagers stayed quiet for the wedding of Largs RNLI volunteer crew member Jennifer who married Michael last week.
In a beautiful ceremony Jennifer swapped her RNLI drysuit and helmet for a beautiful wedding gown and veil, looking absolutely stunning, surrounded by family and friends as she made her vows on Thursday.
Crew pagers had sounded earlier in the day to assist a motorboat off Hunterston Power Station, but the volunteer crew had returned to the station in time to make their way to the venue and give the newlyweds a Guard of Honour.
The crew dressed in their drysuits formed an arch with oars, which Jennifer and Michael walked through to join their guests in their evening reception.The crew were delighted to join the couple on their special day and would like to wish them continued happiness in their life together.
