Not sure whether Ryan Bradley was the best man (he might have been groomsman), but he was certainly part of the Groom's party.

I would have linked to this photo sooner, except that I didn't know who the guy in the middle was. I think he's a family friend.
What I find interesting is that all of them are wearing different Tartans.
I saw a photo of John and his Dad at a wedding here in Ireland a few years ago, and they were wearing the same kilts as they were on Saturday. So, I went investigating...
Alastair is wearing the Clan Kerr tartan.
There are a LOT of tartans using the combination of colours in John's kilt, but I think it is the Royal Stewart tartan.
The Stewart family ruled Scotland from 1371 until 1707. They also ruled England, Wales and Ireland from 1567 to 1707. As a result, their tartan has become a symbol of Scotland. So John may be wearing it as a reference to his nationality rather than his ancestry.
Neil is wearing the Clan Bruce tartan. The Bruce family ruled Scotland before the Stewarts, from 1306 to 1371. Their first King, Robert the Bruce, is considered a national hero.
Ryan is wearing the Great Scot tartan. I don't know anything about it's history, sorry. But, it doesn't seem to be associated with any particular family.
Although the Bradley family doesn't have it's own tartan, they are normally associated with the Roxburgh tartan. So, I am surprised Ryan didn't wear this to the wedding.
Hope you find this interesting.

^ Thank you, Caroliza_fan for the gorgeous pic links and the (tartan) info., etc.
Congratulations to the couple!
CaroLiza_fan, thank you for the info about tartans. Interesting
the choice of tartan though one would hope it is story based sometimes it is about looks or ..yep, what is available.

And they totally don't wear anything underneath (not that that is why it's sexy - I think it's the legs). At least when I had my graduation ceremony from Edinburgh University, the official instructions stated that women should wear a white button-down and dark pants or skirt and men shold wear a dark suit or kilt "with appropriate hose"
