Court lifts ban on couple discussing their wedding

A Scottish court has lifted a ban on a couple from discussing their wedding plans.

Arranging a wedding is a stressful business for anyone, but when Jacqueline MacFadyen and Robert Spencer discussed their 'happy' day a row broke out and police had to be called to bring the peace.

Mr Spencer, 55, found himself before Sheriff Lindsay Foulis at Perth Sheriff Court this month, where he admitted breaching the peace by conducting himself in a disorderly manner.

As a condition of bail, Mr Spencer was forbidden to speak with his fiancée.

However, the court has now relaxed the conditions so that the couple can discuss their wedding arrangements for the ceremony which is planned for June.

Solicitor Billy Somerville told the court: “The parties wish to get married, and also it is her 50th birthday coming up, and they wish to make arrangements for both events.

“Because they are not able to discuss matters at present it is making arrangements impossible. The bail conditions are having a fairly detrimental effect on her. She is signed off work.”
