WHEN Liz McKenna and David Rankine set a March date for their wedding, there was no way they would have expected the possibility of having it postponed due to a relentless snowstorm.

Yet, last week, it appeared as though fate had dealt the couple a truly cruel blow as the Beast from the East rolled into town.

The duo been hoping to tie the knot at Inglewood House last Friday, but the blizzards were already lashing the county from Tuesday onwards.

And just as it seemed the venue would be unable to accommodate their special day, one Alloa businessman came to the rescue.

Graham Sleith brought in reinforcements from Forth Plant Hire in Alloa to clear the path up to the hotel and spa.

His three machines quickly arrived on site to clear away 12 inches of thick snow and opened the car park up for the couple's guests.

However, that was just the first of many hills to climb that day as the bride's make up artist remained cut off.

Inglewood owner Ewan Campbell had to think quick on his feet and managed to get The Colour Lounge from Alloa to come in last minute – he even went to collect and later drop them off in his 4x4.

Some of his own staff also needed a ride, as there was no public transport or taxis on the roads that day.

Finally, as no food and drink deliveries were making it to the Wee County, the Ewan went around all the suppliers to collect all the ingredients of a good party.

Ewan said it was a “fantastic” wedding at a snowy Inglewood House, only made possible by everyone working together to get the event off the ground.

Indeed it wasn't the only wedding at Inglewood last week as another event also went ahead smoothly on Sunday.
