Colin and Irene were married on the 26th June, 1999. They managed to get a lovely day for the wedding, though the evening had some thunder and lightning. The wedding was at the Hebron Hall, Glengarnock, and the reception was at the Claremont, in Kilwinning. Irene's sister Claire, along with friends Kim, Nicola and Audrey, were bridesmaids; her cousins Kirsty, Lexi and Morgan were flower girls. Colin's brother Scott was best man, with his other brother, Bob, and Irene's brother Peter as ushers.
The Gallagher household was crowded for most of the morning, with family from Scotland and America (Lexi and Morgan had come over from the States), and all of the bridesmaids running about getting hair done and photos taken.
When 2 o'clock eventually came round, the groom and best man went inside the church and waited on the bridal party, who arrived soon after (Andy not liking to be late for anything). The service, conducted by Mr. William Ewing, lasted about half an hour, including a few hymns and, happily, no objections.
After the service, everyone got in their respective cars and headed off. The wedding party went to Eglinton Park for photos, then a subset went on to the abbey.
