Sim – Irvine Wedding, 1956

Reader, Ann Irvine shared this lovely photo adding, “This is my parents. Martha Sim (deceased) from High Blantyre married John Irvine from Cambuslang. They wed in High Blantyre Parish Church on 12 July 1956”

What a happy photo that is! I love seeing wedding photos from the 1950’s. People dressed so elegantly and the fashions seemed classy and stylish, by comparison to later decades.

Sally Jamieson George Wallace think it’s maybe a different Sim. There are a few Sim’s in Blantyre but possible different families.
