The Prince of Wales offered his congratulations to Barry and Kirstie Rooney from Patna in Ayrshire who had just been married at Ayr Town Hall. Prince Charles was in Ayr on Saturday for a parade by the Queen's Own Yeomanry, of which he is the Royal Honorary Colonel.

As he left a civic reception at Ayr Town Hall, he met Private Barry Rooney and his new wife as they left their wedding ceremony at the Registrars' Office in the same building.

The Prince offered his congratulations to the couple and posed for photographs for their wedding album.

Pte Rooney, 28, said: "That was absolutely amazing, we were really shocked. Who can say they had their wedding photograph taken with the Prince of Wales?"

Earlier Prince Charles took a royal salute from the Queen's Own Yeomanry as they marched through Ayr town centre.
