Continuing a look at some weddings of Blantyre folk. We’re going back to over 50 years now to 1967. First up is Miss Helen Yoker of Bellairs Place who married Cpl William Foley of Auchinraith Terrace. The couple married in St Josephs RC Church on Glasgow Road.
Next, is Mary Hasson of South View and Robert Macgowan of Cambuslang. The couple also married in 1967 at Stonefield Parish Church on Glasgow Road.
And finally in this article, Moira Crother of Stathmore Avenue married Hamilton man Stephen Trainer, with their wedding taking place in St Joseph’s RC Church.
Here’s hoping these couples have had a long happy marriage. All photos added to the growing archive. If for any reason they wish these photos to be removed from the Blantyre archive, they can of course get in contact and I’d oblige immediately.
