Good morning smile
My partner and I are getting married on a Thursday morning in late November. We have recently moved to Edinburgh, all our friends and families are in England and overseas.

We have a photographer who has kindly agreed to provide 1 signature, and I was wondering if anyone would be up for attending - I'm told it will take 20 minutes.

I am a bit lost and not sure I can leave it for last minute to grab someone from the street, in the hope they have ID on them.

We'd be very happy to return the favour if anyone is planning to elope and need witnesses.

I know it's such a long shot, and a huge ask to do something like this for strangers, especially during a pandemic! But someone suggested I tried here, as you ever know smile

wish I lived near enough, but unfortunatley I'm right down the bottom of England. Didn't want to read and run. Good luck op, and huge congratulations!

I’m too far away, but have you looked for any local Facebook pages in the area? Might get more locals there! And try Scotsnet here too!

Congratulations and I hope you find someone soon!

I live in Edinburgh . Not sure of the legalities of being a stranger and a witness but if it is all above board I will do it on me

And congratulations

Unless it's different in Scotland, then it's completely legal.
My sister is a registrar in England and they've had couples bring in complete strangers off the street to be witnesses.
One time it was a couple of burly builders off the site across the road grin
