ST SALVATORS quadrangle proved to be the perfect spot last Friday as St Andrews celebrated the wedding of two of its most famous former university students.

The school’s pipe band led the procession of guests into St Salvator’s Quad to begin the celebration before playing a selection of Scottish favourites.

Among the talented people who took to the stage were Amy Rayner, an ex-Madras pupil with a remarkable voice, who sang ‘Feeling Good’ by Nina Simone and ‘I Want You Back’ by The Jackson 5.

Sixth year pupil, Katherine Skene - who is well known for her opera singing - did not fail to impress when she sang ‘Nella Fantasia’ and ‘Love Never Dies.’

DANCE

Madras Community Dance School performed a highland dance along with with a Michael Jackson-inspired jazz dance and a beautiful ballet number.

Folk group Ramskeerie provided entertainment for the guests who enjoyed their porridge, sausage and egg rolls, fruit and croissants in the breakfast tent.

Geir Darge, Leila Soulen and Megan Pettegree played the fiddle, Leo Gordon played bodhran, Joanna Stark played cello and Ryan Cowan, Hal Morrissey Gilman and Cameron Mackay played guitar.

Meanwhile, a group of Sixth and Third Year pupils rattled their cans for the William and Kate Charitable Fund which means that 26 of the couple’s nominated charities will benefit from £1885 generously donated by the guests.

Finally, Eco Club members played a valuable role by picking up litter and keeping the quad looking pristine for the television cameras which were rolling throughout the day (see report and photographs on pages 20 and 21).
