Describe the best wedding that happened at Trades Hall ?
The best wedding was during lockdown when numbers were limited. The Groom was Albanian and the only family he had in Glasgow was his brother.
The bride secretly arranged for all of his family back home to record video messages which were played at dinner. It was also the time when dancing wasn’t permitted but they were lucky enough to find a busker when they went for photographs, who was kind enough to play their planned first dance.
