BUCHAN couple Andrew and Mabel Rennie celebrated their diamond wedding anniversary on June 14.

The couple, who live in Mintlaw, met 61 years ago at a marquee dance in New Byth and married one year later.

Mr and Mrs Rennie lived in New Deer for 33 years before moving to their present house in Mintlaw where they have lived for the last 14 years.

Andrew and Mabel have four daughters and two sons, as well as 12 grandchildren and 12 great-grandchildren, most of whom live locally. To celebrate the special occasion, the couple had a small party the weekend of their anniversary.

Andrew worked on a farm before before becoming a van driver for Morrisons’ bakery, while Mabel worked at home on her dad’s farm and at the Maud Hospital as well.

The couple received a card from the Queen on their special day.
