Edinburgh Wedding

It was a pleasure photographing Francesca and Fraser’s wedding at the historic Royal Mile in the centre of Edinburgh. Francesca’s family flew in for the ceremony all the way from the Philippines and I have no doubt the Edinburgh wedding for the happy couple was well worth the flight alone.

It was a small ceremony but very emotional and nobody could have taken away that big smile away from the brides face.

With us being in the centre of Edinburgh, it gave us the perfect opportunity to take photos at Edinburgh Royal Mile before moving to Princess Street Gardens directly beneath the historic Edinburgh Castle. It was great photographing Francesca and Fraser, they were more than happy to get dragged around Edinburgh to get the best photos possible for them to always remember this day. With is being summertime in the capital there were several tourists and locals around and the newly weds felt a bit like celebrities with strangers taking photos and congratulating them.

It was amazing to be part of your special day, you, your friends and families were very friendly. I hope you enjoy the photos, I really enjoyed taking them, see below small selection from the day.

Cartland Bridge Hotel Wedding

As a regular Cartland Bridge Hotel wedding photographer, I love the way you can create such beautiful couple pictures amongst the 19 acres of woodland. The Cartland Bridge Hotel is situated in Lanarkshire and with under an hour from both Glasgow and Edinburgh makes it is an ideal venue.

It was a fun wedding, I got to hang out with the groom and his ushers and capture the moments of them getting ready with a lot of laughter and drinking to settle the nerves.

The ceremony itself was delayed as there was a parade happening in the town and the bride struggled to get to the venue, so this just added to the tension within the room, but she eventually got there much to the relief of the groom. It was a beautiful ceremony which was watched by over 100 friends and family, there were tears and smiles all round. After the ceremony was finished the ushers surprised the bride and groom by performing a number of songs.

We then had the opportunity to take the bride and groom around the 19 acres of woodland for some alone time and capture some couple photos of their day, even though they were a bit reluctant at the start they thanked us afterwards.

After the meals became the speeches and the best man produced the best speech I have witnessed by a best man, he surprised the bride and groom by getting his guitar and performing a hilarious song. After the evening guest arrived the bride and groom cut the wedding cake with a sword, and instead of the traditional style wedding cake this one was a unique cheese and pork pie wedding cake. The happy couple along with the guest danced the night away to a variety of music ranging from traditional Scottish Ceilidh to up to date chart music.
