Calton Hill Engagement Shoot - Paula & Paul

Calton Hill, one of those places that if you asked people from Edinburgh if they'd been up there, a large percentage would say no. The views are stunning though!

Paula and Paul slipped into the photos really quickly. They said they were a little nervous to start with but it didn't show at all. Both so natural in front of the camera. We had a wander around Calton Hill, climbing the monument first then heading round to get some shot with Arthurs Seat as a backdrop. Finally it was down to street level for a few, less windswept shots.

Edinburgh Engagement Shoot - Leigh & Edward

It was great to finally meet Leigh and Edward on Wednesday morning. They had made the journey up to Edinburgh from Cheshire to finalise a few more wedding plans so it was the ideal opportunity to catch up and photograph the e-session.

Such a fun couple to photograph. Laughing and having fun the whole time which I love as the photos are just so natural! Looking forward to the wedding at Mansfield Traquair in November now!

Rufflets Wedding - Cara & Neale

The perfect Scottish summer wedding at one of the countries premier venues. Cara & Neale's wedding day at Rufflets, near St Andrews was extra special on so many levels.

When I arrived at Rufflets the girls were getting ready upstairs with hair and make-up in full swing. It was a such a relaxed, fun atmosphere and looking out from the balcony, the sun was shining and I knew then, it was going to be a beautiful day.

Neale & the boys arrived in plenty of time so we got a few shots before the got themselves ready to greet all the wedding guests. The celebrant, Iain Whitelaw was actually Cara's father. I've worked with Iain several times before and it really was a privilege to be there capturing his daughter and future son-in-law's wedding day.

The sun was shining so it was Rufflets' first outdoor ceremony of the year and it was simply fantastic! Beautiful chair coverings, flowers and little hears hanging from the trees nearby were just a few of the lovely touches.

After the wedding ceremony it was a drinks reception in the sun where the happy couple had time to mingle and chat with family and friends. Once the group shots and bridals were all done it was speeches and dinner.

Finally it was time for the first dance and there party! The dance floor was full from the 2nd dance and was still packed when I left. What an amazing day!
