Grassmarket to benefit
Old town groomed for Walking Wedding Fair
Edinburgh’s old town streets will be the setting for the city’s first Walking Wedding Fair which takes place this weekend.
More than 20 businesses, which are involved in the Greater Grassmarket Business Improvement District (BID), will take part.
They include Walker Slater Men’s & Ladies stores, Apex Grassmarket Hotel, Fabhatrix, La Baratine, Godiva Boutique, Demijohn and Armstrongs Vintage Emporium.
It will showcase everything from the perfect location and ‘his and hers’ outfits to cakes and hats for the big day. Visitors will have a chance to win a wedding hamper, with proceeds going to the Grassmarket Community Project.
Among the more unusual offerings is an alternative wedding cheese cake at I.J Mellis Cheesemongers.
“It’s a great chance for people to check out the boutique and specialists stores taking part and get some ideas for their big day.”
Norrie Stewart, Greater Grassmarket project manager, said: “Greater Grassmarket has it all covered for this fantastic alternative Walking Wedding Fair, which is sure to be a huge success.”
