WEDDING guests have drawn a blank on why one of their number is wearing a kilt.
Male attendees at the event are all in trousers apart from 38-year-old Wayne Hayes, who may be making some obscure statement about his distant Scottish ancestry.
Father of the bride Norman Steele said: “I’ve known Wayne for years, and I’m fairly sure his family are from Birmingham.
“He certainly doesn’t seem Scottish in his speech or demeanour. Maybe there’s a connection but it must be pretty obscure.
“I think he just wants everyone to see his calves.”
Guest Mary Fisher said: “Most probably he just really likes Highlander or Braveheart or another popular ‘kilt action’ movie. Or it’s just a plaid skirt and he’s a subtle cross-dresser.
“Although I think there’s an obscure law that for a wedding to be legally binding there must be a man present who is wearing a kilt for no apparent reason.”
