The Scottish Bagpiper

Photographed at The Kings College Chapel, Aberdeen, a Scottish Bagpiper playing bagpipe at a wedding ceremony. Also known as the Great Highland Bagpipe, it is a type of bagpipe native to Scotland and achieved widespread recognition through its usage in the British military and in pipe bands throughout the world.

"... In a Scottish wedding there are several options for using a solo bagpiper, at the Church, or the marriage ceremony, piping the bride in at the beginning of the ceremony and bride and groom out at the completion of the service. Also playing as the bridal party leaves the ceremony is customary..."
