Waterfront at Archerfield Wedding – Sophia and James

Waterfront at Archerfield Wedding – Sophia and James!

If anyone ever asks me ‘what happens if it rains on my wedding day?’  I’ll show them Sophia and James beautiful Waterfront at Archerfield wedding.  Even the ducks came out to celebrate!

Archerfield House Waterfront Pavilion in North Berwick, is set in 28 acres of land looking out on to the Firth of Forth, it is a stunning wedding venue and one of my favourite venues, not only because of the stunning landscapes but is perfect for all weathers with a magnificent marquee atmosphere.

On the morning of the wedding, I met beautiful bride Sophia at the Marine Villa on the grounds of Archerfield. As I arrived, Sophia was right in the throws of bridal prep having her makeup done by super talented Lauren Gollan. I wandered around documenting the prep and all the stylish details, from her beautiful Caroline Castigliano dress, shoes and gorgeous flowers. While Sophia was getting her hair styled, she opened a lovely card from her soon to be husband along with a beautiful earrings and necklace set.

James and the boys were photographed in the Boat House and down at the Waterfront. Luckily, the sky was a brilliant blue and we captured some really lovely portrait shots, a mixture of formal and relaxed.

Back at the villa, Sophia, her four bridesmaids and two beautiful flower girls were putting together the final touches. Once perfected, we took to the sunshine to get some photographs of Sophia with her bridesmaids and her Dad, before heading off to the cathedral in Edinburgh.

The cathedral was the beautiful St Mary’s Cathedral in Palmerston Place located in the Westend of the city. The bridesmaids arrived in style in a Tesla Premium electric car, and Sophia followed with her dad in a Rolls Royce. The rain stayed off and the ceremony was lovely. Sophia and James exited as Mr and Mrs to a rose petal confetti tunnel, and we all headed back to Archerfield for the reception.

Arriving at Archerfield, we planned a shoot by the lake, but the weather had other ideas. Nevertheless, Sophia and James embraced the downpour, surrounded by the ducks, which made for some brilliant photos. Back inside, the marquee had been styled to perfection by Planet Flowers, we just loved all those stylish details and beautiful floral arrangements.

While the guests were enjoying the reception, we waited for breaks in the rain and darted outside for some romantic shots when the sun made an appearance. The Waterfront at Archerfield House makes for a stunning backdrop to the photos despite the on and off weather.

Sophia and James made their entrance for dinner to a wonderful confetti cannon before everyone settled down for the speeches. As a surprise an owl had been organised to deliver the speech for Sophia’s dad, he certainly made an entrance!  The speeches and food were wonderful and afterwards, Sophia and James took to the dance floor for an amazing choreographed first dance under another fantastic confetti cannon when the party started!

I hope that Sophia and James’ photos prove that there’s no need to worry about the weather on your wedding day. A tip from me would be to plan for rain as well as sun, and choose a venue that can cater to both.

Congratulations Sophia and James on your wonderful wedding day!

Archerfield House Wedding – Ruth & Johnnie

It’s always a pleasure photographing a wedding at Archerfield House in North Berwick.  So I was super excited when Ruth and Johnnie booked me for their intimate wedding with close family and friends.

After a lovely ceremony and a relaxed drinks reception Ruth and Johnnie managed to dodge the heavy rain showers for some photographs and even finding time to capture a rainbow!

An amazing afternoon spent with you both, so relaxed and personal.  I’m so pleased you asked me along!

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!

Mansfield Traquair Wedding – Emma & Ross

Emma and Ross’ Mansfield Traquair wedding

After all our gorgeous weather last month it was inevitable we were due some rain, not that it mattered for Emma and Ross’ gorgeous wedding at Mansfield Traquair.

I met up with Emma and the girls in their Edinburgh New Town apartment where they were busy with bridal preparations.  I got to work photographing Emma’s beautiful bouquet and stylish accessories and wedding details.  Meanwhile Ross and the boys were being photographed at Mansfield Traquair and greeting their guests.

Emma arrived in style and unscathed by the wet weather met her groom for a very romantic and touching ceremony.  Mansfield Traquair is truly a magnificent wedding venue.  Planet Flowers had worked their magic inside and a beautiful garden theme received gasps from their guests, it was truly stunning! Planet Flowers are so talented at transforming any space.   Emma and Ross’ stylish details and attention to detail was just beautiful.  Emma looked truly stunning in her Amanda Wakeley dress and even braved the Edinburgh haar (that’s a thick ‘pea soup’ fog) to meet their guests for a confetti throw and for some outside photographs in the lovely gardens around Mansfield!

Such a beautiful wedding, we loved being a part of your special day!  With a beautiful venue like Mansfield Traquair, who cares what the weather is like outside!

Congratulations to you both, hope you enjoy your preview x
