Family Shoot with Natalie, Sandy & Alfie

I met up with The Pettigrew's last Sunday for a nice early Spring family shoot but the rain came belting down after only about twenty minutes. It was a great laugh though and Natalie, Sandy and Alfie were definitely up for it as you can see from the rain soaked final shot. Defintely going to do another shoot, maybe in April when the weather is a little less wild.

Wedding Photography At The Hub - Abby & Colin

Abby & Colin's wedding at The Hub was definitely one of those, "I don't feel like I'm actually working today" deals. It's a gorgeous building inside and out with Edinburgh's old town right outside the front door. Factor in a beautiful bride a handsome groom, fantastic family and friends and you really can't go wrong. Epic, is how I'd describe it. I met Abby and the girls down at Ju-Pa hairdressing in Leith for all the bridal prep shots before heading along to Colin's parents for a few shots of Colin getting ready for the big day. Then Luke (The videographer) and I headed back to meet Abby and the girls for shots of the shoes, dresses etc.

I love to photograph the guests as they arrive at the venue. All those smiles, laughs and tears really make the story of the day come alive. Abby looked stunning as she emerged from the white taxi at the door of The Hub. We grabbed a few shots before going inside for the wedding ceremony.

Abby and Colin were terrific all day and I can't thank them enough for asking me to be part of their big day. They smiled, laughed and enjoyed every minute of the day which made my job so easy. The ceremony was lovely but there was some laughter too and it all added up to the perfect wedding. We grabbed a few shots of Abby & Colin after the main family shots but it's important that the bride and groom mingle and enjoy the company of their family and friends on their wedding day. I always say, it's your wedding day, not a photoshoot. Summer or Autumn weddings are great in that respect as you can take some more shots after the meal if needed to break things up a little and that's exactly what we did.

The light was fading fast however so I called in a friend of mine who drives a black cab in the city. He was waiting at the door for us so we could get down the Princess Street Gardens and back up to the Royal Mile to get all the shots we wanted before we lost the light. We made it in the nick of time but it was so worth it.

Thank you again Abby and Colin, it was a privilege to be there.

Lesley & Elliot's Wedding in Carrickknowe and The Assembly Rooms in Edinburgh.

A Christmas Wedding!! A perfect day to celebrate the wedding of Lesley & Elliot at Carrickknowe Parish Church and The Assembly Rooms in Edinburgh. I met Lesley at her parents house for a few photographs before meeting Elliot at the church round the corner. I have shot a wedding there before, Fiona the Minister is brilliant and allowed me to sit near the front to get some great shots. Always a pleasure Fiona, thank you again for being so great.

As it gets dark very quickly in December we sped off into the city shortly after the ceremony to take photographs on Edinburgh's historic Royal Mile. It doesn't get much better than this for a backdrop (Ok I'm biased, I love Edinburgh).

The wedding reception was held at the stunning Assembly Rooms in George Street. The Grand Hall is incredible! Boasting huge chandeliers that tower over the guests as they sat for dinner. Really is beautiful. Finally it was time for the dances where evening guests had joined both Lesley & Elliot to celebrate this special day.

George Hotel Wedding Photography - Lindsay & Andrew

I had never been in the grounds of Loretto School in Musselburgh before, so had no idea what to expect when I headed down early to take a little look around. The church reminds me a little bit of the Sydney Opera House inside with all it's beautifully finished curved wooden architecture. After the ceremony we headed in the wedding car (with me onboard) to The George Hotel for the reception. The George Hotel really do know how to put a wedding on and they were at their best again for Lindsay and Andrew. After the wedding breakfast we headed down to Princes Street and the National Galleries for some typical spectacular Edinburgh backdrops. Finally we headed up to the Panoramic Suite on the roof of the hotel for some nice shots at sunset.
