IT might seem a barking idea but this Edinburgh couple hope to lead the way in a new craze – pet weddings.

Bride and groomed Terri and Terrance took a walk down the aisle in a canine wedding in one of the most romantic wedding venues in Scotland.

The terriers, who both hail from the Capital, were wed at a lochside ceremony at The Four Seasons Hotel in St Fillans, Perthshire.

Waiting for Terri at the altar were bridesmaids Lana the Dalmation and Goldie, the matron of honour.

Guests included the bride’s grandfather Sir Rumpole and the groom’s elderly grandmother, spaniel Lady Purdey – who was dressed for the occasion in colourful red wellies and an on-trend grey felt hat.

After the dogs exchanged bows, they enjoyed a wedding breakfast of gourmet pet treats while their owners raised a toast.

Hotel owner Andrew Low, who officiated the ceremony, said he hoped it would become a regular event at the pet-friendly accommodation, with weddings tail-ored to meet four-legged guests’ needs.

He said: “It was a bit of fun and I’d be more than happy to do it again.”

Sources said the guests left feeling a bit ruff the next day.
