Jude & Tommy

In a wedding venue fit for a princes, Jude & Tommy tied the knot at Canongate Kirk followed by photographs at Holyrood Palace.

Jude looked stunning and made quite an entrance by walking up the Royal Mile in her wedding gown accompanied by her beauiful bridal party. With Tommy being a military man at was only right to be greeted by a guard of honour as they left the kirk as well as a gathering of delighted tourists!

Note the pillars outside of Canongate Kirk which were decorated by Garlands Florists.

With special permission we headed down to Holyrood Place for some photographs, the Palace itself and Holyrood Abbey made the perfect backdrop.

A special ‘wow’ goes to Tommy’s mum who turned to her creative hand into making the seating plan, name place tags, order of service, decorations for the balcony and the cake!

Congratulations again to the new Mr & Mrs Blair!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A Little Summer Edinburgh Wedding

Shannon & Stuart tied the knot at Edinburgh’s Lothian Chambers. Shannon is from the States and with her family unable to attend they opted for a small ceremony with just a few members of Stuart’s family present. After having viewed my recent wedding of Maureen & Keith at the Lothian Chambers Shannon & Stuart knew they wanted a similar set of images. It was a joy to photograph this lovely couple as we explored Edinburgh’s most scenic areas, the Royal Mile, Princes Street gardens and Arthurs Seat. The weather was on our side and it was a lovely day with Princes Street Gardens in full bloom.

 

Balbirnie House

Mhairi & Yaasir had the most perfect day at Balbirnie House, the sun shone and allowed for the ceremony to be held outside. It was a while since I’d met Mhairi & Yaasir, the last time being their pre-wedding shoot on Carlton Hill so it was great to catch up again. I’ve shot many weddings at Balbirnie House and it still remains to be one of my favourite venues to work at, its beautiful gardens provide a lovely backdrop for photographs, large light reception rooms, as well this the team at Balbirnie ensures each wedding day runs like clockwork meaning you can relax in knowledge that your day will run smoothly.

 

There’s a few of the suppliers which Mhairi & Yaasir used to create their day…

Flowers – Floral Haven

DJ – Kyle Steele

Hairdresser – Alison Stewart

Grooms wear – Hector Russell & Marchbrae

 

 

A Blackford Hill pre-wedding shoot

I’m delighted to share with you a few images from Gemma & David’s pre-wedding shoot. A few months back we ventured up Blackford Hill which is one of Gemma & David’s favourite parts of Edinburgh.

Doing a pre-wedding shoot is a great opportunity to get a feel for what it will be like on your wedding day. It allows you relax in front of camera and see what is expected of you, helping to take the pressure off on your big day. It lasts around an hour and takes place in a location of your choice, this can be somewhere special to you perhaps where you got engaged, somewhere you like to visit at the weekends or I’m happy to recommend some of the many scenic areas I know. Its also a good chance for us get to know each other, your wedding photographer is with you all day on one of the most important days of your lives so its nice to know we get on and you feel comfortable with me. It’s a good time for me to hear more about your plans and ideas for your big day which in turn allows me to personalise the photography to suit you. As well as this you receive a lovely set of portraits of yourselves which you can then use as you wish, perhaps for your wedding guest book, invites or table plans…

 

Pre-wedding shoot on a windy day

It’s been over a year since I photographed Judith’s brother’s wedding so it was great to catch up again and hear more about their special day. Jude and Tommy love the views over the forth so it was a great location choice for their pre-wedding session.

It was rather cold and windy but the sun made an appearance for us to capture these lovely set of images.

Jude and Tommy are to be married this summer at the Cannongate Kirk followed by the MacDonald Holyrood Hotel.
