Wedding brawl pair left room covered in blood

A hotel room at a luxury Perthshire country club was left covered in blood after a brawl between wedding guests.

James Simpson, the bride’s step-brother, and a teenager admitted fighting at the wedding of Stuart and Danielle Anderson at Moness House Hotel & Country Club in Aberfeldy on November 15 last year.

The room was damaged and left with “blood everywhere” following the incident, according fiscal depute Stewart Duncan.

He told Perth Sheriff Court: “On November 14, Stuart and Danielle Anderson were married at Moness hotel – the service and reception took place there.

“At 12.10am police were called in relation to a disturbance in the foyer.”

Police spoke to the 17-year-old and upon leaving the situation was described as “calm”.

Mr Duncan continued: “At 2am in room one, both accused were engaged in a stand-up fight.

“Stuart Anderson left and a member of staff attended and found the fight ongoing and the room in disarray. The accused were separated and the police attended.

“A check on Simpson found he was in breach of his bail conditions.”

Simpson and the teenager, who cannot be named for legal reasons, both sported black eyes when they appeared from custody at the court on November 16.

At the time Simpson admitted he shouldn’t have been at the wedding because he was on a court curfew relating to a previous case at Inverness Sheriff Court and was supposed to be home from 7pm to 7am every night at his property in Aviemore’s Braeriach Court.

The 27-year-old, who now lives in Linlithgow, also admitted behaving in a threatening or abusive manner at the hotel and country club complex by engaging in a fight. Yesterday the 17-year-old pled guilty to the same offence.

The father of the bride, Ronald Lyon, also appeared in the dock yesterday but his plea of not guilty were accepted by the crown.

Sheriff Fiona Tait deferred sentence until June 28 for reports.
