Take it as red – Aberdeen-mad pair delighted to pay tribute to club with Dons-themed wedding

Angela and Robin Smith had their big day at Pittodrie.

A Dons-mad bride and groom celebrated their love match – and their favourite club – with a Reds-themed wedding day.

Angela and Robin Smith are both lifelong Aberdeen fans.

The pair decided to hold their wedding ceremony and reception at Pittodrie stadium.

But, to take things one step further, the Portlethen couple also made their wedding colours red and white.

The bride’s wedding dress and flowers both had the colours running through them.

And the seven bridesmaids were dressed in red.

The men were wearing Aberdeen Football Club tartan kilts.

Angela, who first attended a Dons match when she was eight years old, said: “I have been going to Aberdeen matches for more than 20 years and have been a season ticket holder.

“I just thought it would be a great idea to get married there.

“I mentioned it to Robin and it just grew from there.”

The guests were also treated to a tour of the stadium, visited the changing rooms, boardroom and went pitchside.

Angela, 40, added: “Some of the guests knew and some didn’t. Not all of them are Aberdeen fans but they all loved it. It is something we will all remember.”

Robin, 53, said: “It was Angela’s idea but, when she mentioned it, I loved it.

“When we were pitch-side – I was impersonating Derek McInnes jumping about.”

Also attending the wedding were Angela’s dad George Glennie and her son Sean McHardy, 18, who are both also avid Aberdeen fans.

George, 71, said: “It was absolutely fantastic.

“We have been to Pittodrie so many times but we have never been down to the dugout or to the pitchside before.

“Sitting in the dugout with Angela and Sean was really special.

“It was really emotional.”

He added: “I first took Angela to a match when she was eight and people thought she wouldn’t like it, but she had a great time. We have been going ever since.”
