Inchcolm Island Wedding

Inchcolm Island Wedding

I’m excited to share Amy and Ian’s romantic Inchcolm Island wedding, simply breathtaking!

The day before the wedding I met up with Ian, his Ushers and his Dad, who incidentally was his Best Man too, how lovely is that! I met up with them all at Benjamin Barbers in Stockbridge. Not frequenting barber shops that often I was pleasantly surprised. The shop had a very rustic and vintage feel, it made me feel very nostalgic, French bulldog Ozzy was a bonus too! Photographing the boys preparing for Ian’s big day was relaxed and good fun!

Fast forward to the following morning where I met up with Amy and her bridesmaids. The girls were in the throws of bridal prep having their hair and make up done by Monica from The Made Up Team. I photographed Amy’s pretty wedding details including her beautiful wedding dress and flowers by Adelaide’s Secret Garden.

Ian and the boys met up at South Queensferry ready to greet their guests to board the Maid of Forth, not before some light refreshment in the Hawes Inn to set them on their way.  The guests boarded the Maid of Forth ready for their short journey to Inchcolm Island Amy and her bridesmaids stowed away in the Captain’s Cabin for the short journey, while the Ian and the rest of the guests enjoyed the sunny journey, the weather was glorious and we even managed to see some seals on the way!

The ceremony took place in the ruined chapel, which had the most incredible light and romantic atmosphere. Inchcolm Island is just a perfect setting for a wedding! Afterwards the guests sipped champagne on the lawn of the Abbey while we took Ian and Amy off for a short time to capture some photographs amongst the ruins! How stunning was that light!

Norton House Wedding

The party continued on the boat, ferrying the guests back to South Queensferry before heading for a lovely reception at Norton House Hotel. The newlyweds were welcomed to a confetti tunnel before a wonderful wedding breakfast in The Garden Room, followed by dancing!

We had the most wonderful day with Amy and Ian, we loved sharing your adventure with you, such a special day, Inchcolm Island it a truly beautiful setting for a wedding!

Edinburgh Wedding Photographer

I’ve photographed so many beautiful weddings this year, amazing couples, gorgeous venues, all so very special and personal. I’m so lucky to have this job to share your wedding day with you!

It’s been lovely going through all my galleries and rather a labour of love choosing some of my favourite images from last years weddings as there were just too many gorgeous weddings to choose from. It’s been an awesome year and I’ve had some amazing feedback from you all and super excited for 2017!

2017 is filling up quickly, so if you’re thinking of booking me as your Wedding Photographer in Edinburgh please get in touch to avoid disappointment. I love all things beautiful, especially, blue skies, pastel colours and soft light and can even make rain look pretty on your wedding day! My style is relaxed, natural, clean and bright and I enjoy working with couples who share my vision for creative, beautiful and romantic photography.

Principal Hotel Edinburgh Winter Wedding – Catriona & Lewis

Principal Hotel Edinburgh Winter Wedding

A wonderful crisp Winter’s Day for Catriona and Lewis’ wedding at the Principal Hotel in George Street in the heart of Edinburgh. Such a pretty wedding, stylish and festive and that ballroom looked just magnificent! I do love a Winter Wedding, especially in Edinburgh.

I met up with Cat and the girls during bridal prep and captured all her pretty wedding details and gorgeous flowers.  The ballroom looked magnificent and dressed to perfection by Save The Date Collective with holly, christmas trees and sparkles, to give the perfect Christmas vibe. After an intimate and romantic ceremony with close family and friends, we grabbed a taxi to nearby Queen Street Gardens for some quick photographs, the weather so was so mild and perfect light for our late afternoon portrait session before heading back to join their guests for the reception. I love the peace and quiet and the prettiness of Queen Street Gardens for wedding photographs.  Set in the heart of the New Town it really is the perfect setting!

We even managed to get outside in the early evening in the mild winter weather and capture the Christmas lights at The Dome and George Street. All so festive and twinkly, Edinburgh is pretty at Christmas time and George Street is just perfect as a backdrop to show off those pretty lights.  Definitely gets you in the mood for Christmas.

An amazing day with your lovely family and friends, I had a lovely time with you all!

Balbirnie House Wedding – Laurie & Steven

A little preview of Laurie and Steven’s lovely relaxed Balbirnie House wedding!

Laurie had her bridal prep with her bridesmaids at the Dakota Hotel in South Queensferry before embarking on her journey to Balbirnie House for their humanist ceremony with family and friends with her Dad in her classic dream car the Bauford Tourer, nothing like arriving in style!

A romantic humanist ceremony with friends and family and afterwards a relaxed ceremony in the pretty gardens.  Laurie and Steven were a joy to shoot, so chilled and very obviously in love.

It was an amazing day with lots of love and laughter.  It was lovely being a part of your special day! x

Royal Botanic Gardens, Edinburgh Wedding – Rachel & Ryan

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!

 

Harburn House Wedding – Sally and Johnny

Harburn House Wedding – Sally and Johnny

A lovely sunny Summer wedding at Harburn House to celebrate Sally and Johnny’s beautiful wedding day!

It was great to back at Harburn House, it’s one of my favourite venues, it has everything for gorgeous rooms for bridal prep, magnificent staircase and the most stunning grounds for photographs.  You are a little spoiled for choice!

After a busy bridal prep with Sally and the girls capturing all the pretty details and gorgeous bouquets, the boys were waiting at Kirk of Calder for the guests.  A lovely church ceremony with close friends and family before heading back to Harburn House for drinks on the lawn in the sunshine. The guests were entertained by a lovely pianist while they sipped champagne before being piped into dinner by Sally and Johnny’s friends on the bagpipes!

The marquee looked magnificent and was styled to perfection by Sally’s Mum and Johnny’s Mum, talented ladies indeed!  A day full of fun and laughter and glorious sunshine! We had a fabulous day with you, huge congratulations to you both!

A beautiful Dalhousie Castle Wedding! Congratulations to Sammy & Sam (Sam Squared!).  It was lovely to be back at Dalhousie Castle, steeped in Scottish tradition with a pretty chapel in the countryside and just outside Edinburgh!

Their ceremony was full of humour and personality which suited this couple down to the ground even incorporating the resident owl delivering the rings!  We made lots of time for photographs in and round the grounds in the sunshine!

A lovely fun filled, quirky wedding, lots of laughter with friends and family. These guys certainly knew how to party.  We love your confetti shot! We had an amazing time with you all!
