How dashing do they look? Woah.
But Billy, what sort of Scot are you? Proper Scots marry in kilts!

They donned cloaks, pointed ears and hairy feet to play hobbits in the Lord Of The Rings film franchise.
But Lost star Dominic Monaghan and actor Elijah Wood couldn't have looked further from their hobbit alter egos today as they smartened up to attend co-star Billy Boyd's wedding in Glasgow, Scotland.
The actors both looked suave in their three-piece suits as they posed with a clearly elated Boyd on the steps of converted church Oran Mor after the wedding.
Boyd, 42, who is arguably best known for playing Pippin the hobbit in the film trilogy, couldn't hide his delight as he married long-term partner Ali McKinnon in a fairytale ceremony.
McKinnon, who is mother to Boyd's four-year-old son Jack, looked stunning in an ivory shift dress with floral detailing, which she teamed with a pair of chic court shoes and a matching hair accessory.
According to wedding co-ordinator Louise Turner, the ceremony was 'quite intimate', with just 30 guests attending the actual service, and a further 130 enjoying the reception.
Boyd and McKinnon, a ballet dancer and yoga instructor, met when they appeared together in a pantomime in 2002.
While Boyd's film career has been relatively quiet since the last installment, Lord Of The Rings: The Return Of The King, he can soon be seen starring alongside Hayden Panettiere and Alfred Molina in Carmel, the story of an art forger in California.
He is also reunited with Lord Of The Rings co-star Sean Astin in upcoming movie The Witches Of Oz, a film which follows a grown-up Dorothy, who is now working as a children's book author.
Meanwhile, while the former hobbits' time in the Shire has come to an end, J. R. R Tolkein fans are already gearing up for the release of Peter Jackson's adaptation of Tokein's The Hobbit, which is set to star Martin Freeman as lead Bilbo Baggins.
It will also see the return of Cate Blanchett's Lord Of The Rings character Galadriel.
Speaking about working with Blanchett, Jackson said recently: 'Cate is one of my favorite actors to work with and I couldn't be more thrilled to have her reprise the role she so beautifully brought to life in the earlier films.'
It is also claimed Orlando Bloom is in talks to reprise his role as elf warrior Legolas, while Sir Ian McKellen has so far kept quiet on rumours he may make a return as Gandalf the Grey.
I think I'll change my newspaper job location and get myself hired by the Daily Mail. lol
