A right Royal occasion

Fraserburgh marked the Royal Wedding on Friday in fine style along with other towns and cities across the country.

Many local businesses had closed for the public holiday but walking round the town centre there were some absolutely fantastic window displays, other businesses that remained open, marked the special day by dressing up.

Staff at the Barber Shop in School Street dressed up in their finery all day, surprising clients when they attended for their appointments. Norma Ross told the Herald: “We thought we would have a bit of fun and our own celebration, our invitations were obviously lost in the post but with our dedication to our clients we would have to have declined anyway.” Another store that held their own little party was the Factory Shop in Barrasgate Road, where staff also celebrated the event by dressing up.

Around the town, locals were holding their own celebrations, Rhona Geddes from Thompson Terrace held a Royal Wedding Tea party for family and friends and Nicole and Isla held a Royal Wedding street Party at their house, with formal dress and wedding dresses for the dress code.

Next week it’s the turn of the schools and playgroups as we remember the big day with more pictures. If you have any pictures from your events send them to alison.kennedy@jpress.co.uk
