We will have a photographer capturing moments throughout the day, which we may then share online or use publicly. If you do not want your image used in this way, please make this clear to us during registration so we can provide you with a lanyard to identify you to our photographer so they can ensure you are eliminated from all photos.
Due to space within the upstairs area of the Kirk, buggies and pushchairs need to be left at the entrance downstairs, with babies/children then carried or walked up the stairs (a lift is also available). We apologise for any inconvenience this might cause.
Babies/children can be returned to their buggy/pushchair after the ceremony and the Atrium (reception area) is large enough for them to remain in these for the remainder of your celebration.
