1970 Gormley – Pederson Wedding

Maria Pederson messaged me a few weeks ago saying, “Hi there, I saw your post about 1970s weddings. Just thought I would share a picture of my parents on their wedding day at St Josephs in Blantyre on 17th June 1970. My mum Miss Elizabeth Gormley of 8 Knightswood Terrace, Blantyre married Mr Henry Pedersen from Vonge in Denmark. My father was sailing on the Guinness ship between Glasgow and Dublin and they met I think in January of 1970 at a party in The Village East Kilbride.”


Thank you to Maria for sharing this beautiful picture.
