At 12.30pm on Saturday, May 6, Arran RNLI Lifeboat crew assembled and launched - this time not to a vessel in distress but to deliver a groom to his bride!

Arran RNLI in-shore lifeboat Rachel Hedderwick launched at 12.40pm and with the important package of helmsman Martin Wood aboard made way to Kildonan to deliver him to his awaiting bride!

En-route however Martin showed he is always thinking of improving his crew as he launched an impromptu training exercise while they waited for the go ahead for the groom to go ashore!

All of the Arran RNLI crew are delighted to see Martin and Kate married and wish them all the best for their honeymoon and the many happy years they have ahead.
