Subway staff and commuters were stunned when Malcolm, from Glasgow’s west end, arrived at the Kelvinbridge information desk with his bride on Saturday asking for more than 40 tickets to St Enoch.

Once in town, the colourful crew had heads turning yet again as they made the short walk to the Argyle Street bar.

Gordon Maclennan, chief executive of Strathclyde Passenger Transport said: “A Subway car isn’t a typical wedding car but I’m glad we were able to add to the McConnells’ special day by getting them – and their guests – to their reception in style and keeping their celebrations on track.”
