Photography and Gowns

To make your day a little more special, we’re setting up photography studios on each campus, so you’ll have the opportunity to hire a gown and have your photograph taken, either on your own or with your family.

Gowns can be returned immediately after your photographs, or alternatively, you can take them home and return them by post the following week - this means you can wear it to visit friends and family, take your own photographs and enjoy your own celebrations. Return postage will be free.

 

CLOSING DATE

The closing date for booking is Friday 1 October. Once booked, further instructions on how to join the celebration events and details about your gown collection and photographs will be sent to you by email week commencing 4 October.


CELEBRATIONS WITH FAMILY AND FRIENDS

To help you to make the most of your day/evening we have agreed special deals and discounts with some local restaurants for graduates and their families.

We hope you enjoy your celebration lunch or dinner with your family and friends, please share some photos on social media using the hashtag #AyrshireGrads
