Brides Make An Extra Special Entrance In Renfrew Town Hall


Brides Make An Extra Special Entrance In Renfrew Town Hall

A group of lovely ladies from across Renfrewshire Council have come out in force to show their support for the newly re-opened and beautifully restored Renfrew Town Hall by donning their bridal gowns one more time for a unique town centre bridal gathering.


bridesRenfrewshire brides and bridesmaids who have been married in the town recently to others who are celebrating longer anniversaries all jumped at the chance to wear that special dress again though this time with friends and colleagues in order to help raise awareness of Renfrew’s hidden gem fairytale castle style wedding venue.


Sheonna Anderson, Valerie Kelly, Michelle Carslaw, Linsey Matthews, Bobbie O’Donnell , Mary Longwell and Tricia Gault all from various sectors across the Council braved the weather and stopped traffic in Renfrew town centre yesterday as they made their way up the High St in their beautiful gowns.


Kathleen Kennedy of Renfrewshire Arts & Museums Service said,’ We were absolutely delighted to have received so much support from our colleagues across the Council, many of whom live in the area, to get involved in our campaign ‘Your Dream Setting Is Nearer Than You Think’ and to raise public awareness of such a beautiful venue which makes for the perfect wedding location. We hope the elegant and classic style of the facilities, which were just restored to their former glory earlier this year will make more bridal parties think of the Historic Burgh of Renfrew as their choice.’


Renfrew Town Hall has a rich and varied past dating back to 1670. It has served as a courthouse, an early 19th century jail, a focal point for community and civic activities and more recently of course a wedding venue.


The venue was officially opened by deputy First Minister Nicola Sturgeon on 28 January 2012 after a £5.2million programme to fully refurbish and renovate all aspects of the building.
