The Kingdom Shopping Centre in Glenrothes, Scotland hosted the UK's first shopping mall wedding on Saturday 4th July 2009.

Euan Crawford (Paisley) and Laura Macdonell (Worcester) won a Kingdom Centre competition to make their wedding go down in history and tied the knot in the mall in front of friends, family and Kingdom Centre shoppers!

The lucky couple also won a full wedding ceremony and reception package worth over Pounds Sterling 12,000 including a week's honeymoon in Turkey.

Euan entered the competition run through a National newspaper in February as a Valentines surprise for girlfriend Laura. Unsuspecting Laura was understandably shocked but delighted when Euan announced to her that they were the lucky winners - especially considering that they weren't even engaged yet!

Fortunately Laura said yes and the ceremony took place at 3pm on Saturday 4th July in the Kingdom Centre's main events space, with a fantastic time had by all, including the on looking crowd who clapped and cheered the couple on.

Laura said that she enjoyed her time in the spotlight: "I was very nervous in the morning and tried to keep calm but couldn't stop the jitters! As soon as I entered the Centre and saw all of the people I was quite shocked at the crowds but just couldn't stop smiling! It was a brilliant day and I was able to really relax and enjoy myself during the reception".

Euan had a bit of a nervous wait for bride Laura who arrived about 20 minutes late: "I was a bit apprehensive at the start as Laura took her time but as soon a I heard the piper I knew I was on the home straight. My bottom lip started quivering when I saw Laura looking so beautiful at the top of the red carpet but I managed to hold it together. Speaking to guests now everyone's just had such a fantastic time and are all really enjoying themselves."

Anna Bluman the Kingdom Centre Marketing Manager who came up with the idea and organised the event was delighted with how the whole day went: "Everyone at the Centre was very excited about the wedding day and we are so pleased with how it's all come together. They are such a lovely couple and we just wanted to make it a special and memorable day for them. I would like to thank all of the staff at the Centre who did such a fantastic job, and we all wish Euan, Laura and baby Elsie the very best of luck in their future together. We also owe a big thank you to all of the event sponsors and Tracy Blyth at Fife Registration Service who made the day possible!"

Euan is currently working as an engineer on a North Sea Ferry whilst Laura is full time Mum to their daughter Elsie, aged 11 months. The couple met 4 1/2 years ago when working together on a cruise ship in the Carribean.

The Kingdom Shopping Centre is managed by NB Real Estate.
