A Lewis couple had an extra special wedding reception last month when a world champion pipe band played for their guests.

Claire and Hugh Murray got married on August 8th, holding their reception at the Caladh Inn in Stornoway which just happened to be the accommodation for the Simon Fraser University Pipe Band who were performing at Tattoo Hebrides.

The six time world champion band from Vancouver, Canada returned to the hotel on the Friday evening to find the wedding reception in full swing and couldn’t resist getting involved in the celebrations.
