Curfew bride says wedding 'no less special' even though it was cut short
A photograph of Rowan McCabe taken after her wedding reception was cut short has been a social media hit.
Mr and Mrs McCabe were wed at a distilleryThe wedding ceremony took place below a waterfall at Glengoyne Distillery near Killearn, where Jason, 32, works as a distiller.It was followed by a meal at The Bothy restaurant, just off Byres Road in Glasgow's west end, with 17 close friends and relatives.
Shortly after the reception came to an end, the happy couple darted across Byres Road to the taxi rank so they could get back to their home in Milngavie, East Dunbartonshire.Wattie Cheung's photograph of that moment has since attracted substantial attention on social media.
He was there to take pictures of pubs and restaurants emptying out on the first night of the curfew for the media.Speaking to BBC Radio's Good Morning Scotland, he said: "Everything just came together when Rowan walked across the road. There was two cars lighting her dress up. It was just quite lucky in some sense."
The new Mrs McCabe - who was Miss Foxley until Friday - said the couple had made a few attempts to marry, the first of which was in May.After other dates and plans were cancelled down to Covid, the couple decided to go "full steam ahead" for the September date - no matter what restrictions were in place.
'A long time coming'Mrs McCabe, 22, said: "Even with things ending at 22:00, it felt like a really long time coming for the two of us."We'd planned for years. Obviously we couldn't plan for coronavirus happening so it was a really stressful time, but Jason - my now husband! - made me a promise that by 25 September this year we'd be married couple and he fulfilled that for me.
"We keep joking he was the bride this time round 'cos he planned everything!"image copyrightCurrent restrictions meant they could only have 20 peopleat their ceremony.Mrs McCabe told the BBC: "It was socially distant - we got married up at Glengoyne distillery... They kindly stepped in and rescued the day for us.
"They set up at the waterfall behind the distillery. There were chairs for our 17 guests socially distant in household bubbles at the waterfall."Everybody was then taken for a tasting where they grabbed their masks and sat socially distant from each other.
Afterwards, everyone made their way to the reception at The Bothy where they sat with their households."It was nothing we could ever have imagined would have happened but it didn't make it any less special," she added. Read more: BBC News (UK) »

Melbourne Covid curfew ends and restrictions ease, but Victoria introduces huge new finesSchools and childcare return, while rules are relaxed for outdoor gatherings, but breaches may be punished with fines of almost $5,000 Gotta keep one eye on the far right idiots who worship at the feet of the Murdoch family. Once numbers rise again (as they inevitably will) lockdown will be reimposed again, and so on forever. The notion that lockdowns can eradicate a virus is barely beyond blood-letting with leaches.

Covid rule-breakers face crackdown as fines riseRefusing to self-isolate when you test positive for coronavirus is now illegal in England, with fines of up to £10,000 It shouldn't be fines of 'up to' £10,000, it should be fines of a minimum of £10,000 IOMGovernment have put a woman in jail for stopping at shop to buy food on her way home from the Airport to self-isolate. They put another woman in jail who stopped to get petrol on her way home from the ferry to self isolate. This woman is/was a carer to an 80 year old. It is only decent tbh, you don't go around people when you are knowingly contagious with anything. Having to make it illegal is a sad inditement really. However the support structure around those should be a massive mitigating factor. That needs looking at.
Covid: too many children are being tested, says leading UK expertSchools should be ‘almost the last places to close’, lead author Prof Russell Viner says Just do what the Dutch did: children are not to be tested, unless severely ill. Send them to school wíth symptoms. Due to lack of testing, there will be no more clusters in schools. Problem solved! We are rolling out Spit&Swhis tests in BC Kindergarden through 12 I am thinking it is an excellent approach not only for safety but also excellent research data. 'expert'? In what, being a moron?
