THE couple who ended up on the All Under One Banner (AUOB) march through Ayr right after their wedding have described their “surreal” experience at the weekend.

Bride Kate Orsi and her new husband Vittorio were married at a small ceremony in the town on Saturday, and had quite the surprise after leaving the county buildings.

The couple went outside on to the street to get pictures of their special day to find the AUOB march in full swing. The pair posed with the marchers and later found the pictures had been liked more than 1000 times on social media.

Orsi said the moment was nothing like what she had expected for her wedding day.

“The most ironic thing is my husband and I – we’ve been together nine years – we just decided to plan our wedding 10 weeks ago. So all we wanted was a very tiny wedding. We only had 15 guests during the day when we got married and then we had a party in the evening, so the theme was very low-key,” she explained.

But the newlyweds ended up with hundreds of people in their wedding pictures. “We kind of stood there for about five minutes when we came out and everyone was just shouting congratulations and it was surreal,” she continued.

The bride was pleased with the outcome of her photographs which are filled with bright Scotland flags, adding: “I was worried about, you know when you get married you should have something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue – we said that’s going to be our something blue.”

Orsi said the experience made the day even more special for her father, who is an “avid” Tartan Army supporter. “He’s been the spokesperson for the Tartan Army and he goes on all the abroad trips and he never misses a game so it was very special for him,” she continued.

She said a lot of her dad’s family were also taking part in the march on the day.

Orsi added: “We can’t believe it, in the party that’s all anyone could talk about, just how funny it was that we ended up in the march.”

On Twitter, Orsi thanked All Under One Banner organisers for helping the couple to gather Yessers’ photographs of the special moment, posting: “Huge thank you to Neil

@AUOBSCOT for helping to gather as many pictures as possible of us in the march on our wedding day. Such a special moment that will be talked about by our families for years to come.”

The happy couple are now heading off to Thailand to celebrate their honeymoon.
