Love story on Lauriston Place

Heriot's Sweethearts.
Mr & Mrs Nugent
Mr & Mrs Nugent

You never know what conversations will be had at one of our Former Pupil events. We had the pleasure of meeting Caroline (1980) and Robert (1980) on the evening of 24th May at One Bird Cage Walk. 

Caroline joined Heriot's in 1979, the first year that girls attended the school. While settling into the school Caroline (nee Catto) would meet Robert and a romance would bloom leading on to wedded bliss. If the progressive decision to start accepting girls into Heriot's was not made at that time our romantic duo may have been set on a different path. 

The Nugents do now lay claim to being the first married couple produced by the school, while of course we will never claim this not to be so, we hand the baton over to you, our Former Pupils. Do you know of a Herioter couple that could lay claim to an earlier marriage?

If not, the Nugents can carry this accolade with pride! 

We would love to read about more Heriot love stories, did you meet your life partner while at Heriot's? Do you have a romantic story of being whisked off your feet from the Quad to Wedding Chapel? Did you marry on the school grounds, or have you reconnected with another Herioter you knew from your schooldays and found love has blossomed?

Please share your stories, after meeting the Nugents we cannot wait to hear more love stories from Lauriston Place.
