Tennis star Andy Murray and his partner Kim Sears tied the knot on Saturday - in a ceremony conducted by a former assistant minister in Rothesay.

The Rev Colin C. Renwick, minister of Dunblane Cathedral, started work as assistant to the late Rev Ronnie Samuel at Trinity Church in the town in August 1988.

Trinity Church organist and elder Lyn Bulloch, who has remained friends with Mr Renwick since his Rothesay days, said: “Colin was only at Trinity for a year - he only needed to be here for a year, as a new minister who didn’t yet have his own charge. I think he was Ronnie Samuel’s third or fourth assistant minister.

“Colin’s first charge was in Maybole in Ayrshire, where he met and married a GP. He was minister at Jordanhill Parish Church for 17 years, and was called to Dunblane Cathedral in April 2014.”
