Top Scottish piper, Craig Lawrie, was left completely baffled when the bride who hired him to play at her wedding was delighted with his piping but then later demanded money back after pictures serviced of Craig holding a pint of beer bought buy him by the best man.
This was not a case of “piper doon” – Craig is a well respected piper in the Lomond & Clyde Pipe Band having played with the band and performed at weddings for a number of years. Craig was paid to pipe at the wedding of the couple, at a hotel in Renfrew on June 6.
The day itself passed off with a hitch but the trouble started when the bride saw some of her guests photographs, one of which showed Craig with a pint glass.
The bride, in a text since posted online by Craig, wrote: Firstly thank you for piping at our wedding. Everyone loved it and it definitely made our day special. I have one issue, however. In one of our guest photos you’re seen drinking a pint and I’m not happy at this.
