A city centre hotel in the Capital has issued a call-out for the ‘paw-fect pair’ of inseparable canines for a wedding photoshoot like no other.

Fur-ever friends Lewis and Harris.

The SKYbar at DoubleTree by Hilton Edinburgh City Centre will host a special ceremony for the two pups on Sunday 23 February 2020 at its annual Wedding Showcase event – but first the search is on for the canine couple.

Owners of pampered pooches hoping to put a collar on their fur-ever friend should visit the hotel’s Facebook page where entries can be made by posting an image of the two dogs in the comments section of the recent ‘comPAWtition time’ post.

The public can then pick their favourite duo as votes will be counted from likes and loves generated, and the winners will be announced on Friday 13 December.

The winning couple will be given the full wedding treatment, with the hotel helping to plan their fur-ever ending, before they celebrate their love at SKYbar against the picturesque backdrop of Edinburgh Castle.

The journey down the aisle will begin with an engagement photoshoot of the new four-legged fiancés, which will take place at the hotel on Thursday 19 December.

Marcello Ventisei, General Manager of DoubleTree by Hilton Edinburgh City Centre, said: “We’ve catered for a wide variety of weddings here in Edinburgh and we’ve seen many couples involve their pets in their special days, but we’re now putting the spotlight on man’s best friend.

“While it won’t be legally binding, we want to celebrate the love between two special pups and the photoshoot images will be used at our wedding showcase next year. As ever, we’re pulling out all the stops and we can’t wait to see the entries flooding in for a Christmas proposal like no other.”
