Jennifer & Alasdair

Last month I was delighted to shoot Jennifer & Alasdair’s wedding at Holyrood Abbey Church. There was a fairly large amount of guests at this wedding but it still felt very intimate and personal to the couple. Both Jennifer & Alasdair are musicians so music was at the fore front of their ceremony. I have to admit, having ever shot in this church before and with rain forecast for the day, I was a little worried about photographic opportunities however I was pleasantly surprised by a large bright interior with floods of natural light. The ceremony was followed by a ‘tea & cake’ reception before the couple set off for a meal with their families.

Melissa & Dan

I recently had the pleasure of capturing Melissa & Dan’s wedding at Edinburgh’s City Chambers. They come over from the States with a few family members and close friends for an intimate ceremony in the city centre. A last minute surprise wedding gift was brought in – Harpist Tasmin Dearnley! En route to the wedding one of the wedding guests spotted Tasmin busking on the Royal Mile and asked if she would come and play during the ceremony!


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.
