Isobel, that's a wonderful 1950's photo, I love your dress! I remember the Rev Campbell, he married my uncle and his bride in 1961 at Priesthill Parish Church (I was 13 then). We were back there again in 1965 when the bride's young sister got married. The reason I remember him was because the bride's mother's maiden name was Campbell and there was a joke made about the church being full of Campbells, then just so as not to be outdone, the younger sister married a Campbell!
