Heather & Robert's Engagement Shoot - Dalkeith Country Park

I met with Heather and Robert on Wednesday for the engagement shoot at Dalkeith Country Park. It's a great walk around there and we got some lovely photos of Heather & Robert. Like every couple it takes a few minutes to get used to having your picture taken but after a while they were fantastic. Roll On April!

Dalkeith Palace Wedding - Justine & Andy

Dalkeith Palace Wedding In The Springtime.

Justine & Andy's Dalkeith Palace wedding is right up there as one of my favourite weddings and at a stunning location too. The Buccleuch Estate, locally know as Dalkeith Country Park it's a vast area of natural beauty with Dalkeith Palace as a stunning jewel in it's crown.

The ceremony took place at St Mary Scottish Episcopal Church just inside the gate of the estate. It was also great to catch up with Rev Peter Harris again. He always conducts a lovely but fun ceremony for the happy couples and is also the school chaplain at the special needs school my son attends.

I headed to The Scotsman Hotel in the heart of Edinburgh to meet up with Andy and the guys. They were getting ready in one of the suites in this converted newspaper HQ. There was great banter with the guys as they all seemed nice and relaxed as they prepared to head out to Dalkeith.

I then headed to Justine's parent's house just outside Edinburgh for the bridal prep photos. The girls were all very excited about the wedding which made for great fun and relaxed photographs. Justine looked stunning in her dress as the girls fussed around making sure every detail was absolutely perfect. Finally....it was time to head to the church.

After The ceremony, Justine and Andy were met with a London Red Bus and a full pipe band lead by Pipe Major Andrew. They marched the short distance to Dalkeith Palace a little further into the estate where drinks and canopies were served. Even though it was May, it was kind of chilly too. The guests were fantastic though as they waited patiently for their turn at the family photos. We flew through them nice and quickly so that everyone could get back to enjoying the drinks and chatting with family.

After the speeches we nipped back out for a few more photographs then head back for the cake cut and the first dances. I couldn't resist staying on a little longer as some of the dance moves were awesome. The guests really got into the Ceilidh in a big way and there was not a floorboard to be seen on the dance floor. Everyone was up dancing and having a blast at one of this years best weddings!

Sarah & Jamie's E-Session At Dalkeith Counry Park

From the minute I picked Sarah & Jamie up to the minute I dropped them off I don't think any of us stopped laughing. The hour seemed to fly by! We headed into Dalkeith Country Park as it was a little breezy to say the least so the park offered some welcome shelter. Right from the get go, Sarah and Jamie just ran with it and had a blast. I was quite happy not saying to much as they were doing such a great job on their own. Just brilliant!

The big day is in July at Eskmills, it's going to be brilliant!

Laura & Donald's Engagement Shoot At Dalkeith Country Park

Laura won a fantastic make-over and photoshoot I was running with Helen from CityBrides so we planned to arrange the e-session for just after the shoot. We took a wander down to Dalkeith Country Park with Nina by Donald and Laura's side. It was great to have a chat about the wedding plan for the day and to find out Laura & Donald have booked the Awesome wedding band, Bon Accord for the big day. The wedding is in September this year with reception at The Houston House Hotel.
