Royal Botanic Gardens Edinburgh Wedding – Rachel & Ryan!
We had the most amazing day with lovely Rachel and Ryan on their wedding day at the Royal Botanic Gardens in Edinburgh. They braved the heaviest of downpours for photographs and made the most of the dry spells. Nothing could dampen this lovely day, even in the rain, the Botanic Gardens is such a pretty venue!
On the morning of the wedding I met beautiful bride Rachel at her family home in Dunfermline. The light in the house was just perfect to photograph Rachel’s pretty details and gorgeous flowers by florist Lou Lou Flowers. Meanwhile, Rachel and her sister were getting ready with talented make up artist Rebekah McVitie.
We met Ryan and the boys at St Margaret’s Church in Dunfermline for some relaxed portraits before greeting guests for their ceremony. The first spots of rain threatened just as Rachel and her Dad arrived in their vintage Ford Cortina! After a beautiful ceremony and Rachel and Ryan exited as Mr and Mrs to a downpour, so we decided to make the most of the warm, dry church and cover family groups at the church alter before heading back to Edinburgh.
Arriving at the Botanic Gardens the rain was on and off, so armed with umbrellas Rachel and Ryan embraced the weather and luckily the rain stayed away for us to capture some pretty photographs in and around the stunning gardens. Friends and family enjoyed the reception in the Caledonian Suite followed by speeches and cutting of the cake before being piped over to the John Hope Gateway Building for a beautiful wedding breakfast but not before we captured the newlyweds by that amazing car!
Sometimes we worry about the weather but with a bit of flexibility and just going with the flow, you can still capture beautiful photographs regardless? Rachel and Ryan’s gorgeous wedding prove you can still have beautiful wedding pictures even it does rain on your wedding day.
Lots of fun and laughter with close family and friends, we loved being a part of your special day. Congratulations!
