Black and white photograph of bridesmaids and attendants at a wedding labelled on back in Jimmy Bell's writing "Skibo wedding? or Johnny Bannerman".

I believe this photograph was taken at the wedding of Louise Carnegie Miller, granddaughter of Andrew Carnegie, to J. F. Gordon Thomson on 28 July 1938. The pair married at Dornoch Cathedral and the reception was held at Skibo Castle.

Another photograph of the bridesmaids and flower-girls can be found in the Historylinks Image Library [No.10178] and there is also a newspaper article describing the event [Item No.899]
