Balmoral Hotel Wedding Photography & Lothian Chambers - Carys & Craig

The Balmoral Hotel is the most iconic building in Edinburgh and a very popular venue for weddings. Carys and Craig were actually tying the knot at Lothian Chambers over on George IV Bridge before heading back to the Balmoral for the wedding breakfast and the reception. We started at The Balmoral for the bridal prep shots where Freda Howden had just started Carys' make-up. Family were coming and going, the weather was great, not just for December up here but just in general. The sun was shining...I was going to be a perfect day.

Then it was off the Lothian Chambers in the heart of Edinburgh's Old Town for the wedding ceremony. It's a stunning building with ornate marble pillars and beautiful wood features. The guests gathered in anticipation for Cary's arrival as Craig shared a joke with Andy at the top of the room. Carys looked just stunning as her and her father walked down the aisle.

After the ceremony it was outside for the group shots which we had pre-arranged so we could get through them nice and quickly. It was getting a little colder now so I didn't want the guests hanging around too much. Once the family shots were done we wandered the High Street to get some nice portraits of Carys and Craig before heading back to The Balmoral where we were greeted by Toastmaster Bob and The Balmoral's fantastic (Award Winning) wedding planner Elizabeth Lorimer. As always the staff at The Balmoral were wonderful and we were offered the chance to head up to the roof of the building for a few more shots of Carys & Craig. Toastmaster Bob led the way to the roof and kept us entertained in the chilling wind up there. Toastmaster Bob was fantastic and a highly recommended addition to any wedding to add a little bit of gravitas and fun to your special day.

After dinner we had the speeches followed by the dancing in to the night. What a fantastic day and it really doesn't get any better! Loved every minute!

Carberry Tower Wedding Photography - Alison & Neil

Just five minutes up the road for Alison & Neil's Wedding at Carberry Tower. The last time I was there the stunning marquee out out the lawns wasn't there before but what a fantastic addition it is. Carberry Tower pretty much has everything you could wish for on your wedding day. When I arrived, Neil and the boys were enjoying a drink in the snooker room and chatting with friends and family. We did some shots of the guys on the long driveway leading up to the hotel and thankfully, even though we were in the midsts of December, it wasn't actually that cold at all. I then headed up to Alison's room to get some shots of her with Mum, Dad and Sis. She looked stunning and her dress was equally beautiful. A few shots in the room and then it was show time.

The staff at the Hotel were terrific and were chatting at interacting with the guests as they made their way to the ceremony room. It may have been winter but it was a lovely chilled laid back atmosphere. After the ceremony it was time for the family shots which we whizzed through. I always chat about group shots before the big day and just had the guests needed for the shots on hand. That meant with light fading fast we could get some great shots of Alison & Neil, in and around the grounds.

Finally it was off to the new marquee, which looked amazing,for speeches, dinner and a fantastic party! Even some Old Skool thrown in there which kept me entertained as I grabbed some shots of the dancing guests. Finally as Neil is a Physics teacher, I just wanted to ask what he has for his dinner at night. Fission Chips apparently! No? Oh alright then.
