Scotland’s finance secretary has tied the knot at a church service in Dingwall.

Kate Forbes married her fiance Alasdair MacLennan on Thursday morning, having announced their engagement earlier this year.

A number of family and friends were present at the ceremony, whilst the wedding was also livestreamed so that others could celebrate the occasion whilst Covid restrictions remain in place.

The couple had photographs taken at the Global Energy Stadium, home of Ross County FC, a short distance from the church.

“We are delighted to get married, with some friends and family. Many watched online instead of joining us in person, because of Covid-19 restrictions,” she said.

“After a difficult 18 months for everybody, our wedding day has been full of joy. We hope other couples enjoy the same happy day, even with all the worries and frustrating of planning a wedding around restrictions.”
