LITHUANIAN couple get married in Portpatrick

Rasa and Andrius Tapinas decided to get married in Portpatrick - after seeing it featured on the world wide web.

The pair, both television journalists from the country's capital Vilnius, were aided in their quest to choose a wedding destination by the pictures on the Small Towns Initiative website at www.stranraer.org.

And Jean Ross, recently appointed Projects Officer for the STI, was delighted when they called in at Portpatrick Events Office dressed in their wedding clothes and asked for directions to a castle suitable for taking their wedding pictures.

Said Andrius

"We had always wanted to marry in Scotland. On the Stranraer website we saw a beautiful image of Portpatrick with its harbour and decided to come to this beautiful village".

As some souvenir snaps were taken outside the events office, several local people joined in a toast to the bride and groom.

After such a warm reception, the couple say they may return to Portpatrick next year - to celebrate their first wedding anniversary.
