The bride Margaret MacLaine and the bridesmaid, her sister Marion, are dressed in the fashion of the day with elaborate bouquets. The groom, Hugh Cameron, is in full Highland regalia.

Both families took a keen interest in the Tiree Association which was founded in 1900 to provide a focal point for islanders living in Glasgow. The bride’s father, Neil, was a well-known bard and was prominent in the Celtic movement in Glasgow.

The best man was the groom’s brother, Dr John Cameron. He married Mae Smillie who raised funds for a holiday cottage by the shore in Morvern for the families of ex-servicemen.
