Andrew Polson marries Aileen Suttie

Revival FM station director Andrew Polson married Aileen Suttie at Burnside-Blairbeth Church of Scotland, Burnside, Rutherglen, on Friday 9 November 2018.

A large attendance at the ceremony was followed by a reception for invited guests at Crossbasket Castle, High Blantyre, Lanarkshire.

Crossbasket’s four-story bridal tower dates back to the 16th century as part of the preceding Mains Castle. The fairy-tale turret room, built on a hill overlooking the Calder River, is served by a sweeping spiral stone staircase. A true one-off, it is the ultimate bridal suite for Andrew and Aileen.

Andrew, who is also musical director of the Celebration Choir and Christmas Celebration presentations, received over 121 ‘Likes’ on his FB page and also 47 ‘congratulation’ messages from friends.

From everyone at 100.8 Revival FM: “Congratulations to Andrew and Aileen and wish them a happy and healthy life together.”

Picture show Andrew and Aileen with Best Man John Polson, Andrew’s brother plus Bridemaids outside Burnside-Blairbeth Church after the wedding ceremony on Friday afternoon.
