Rain in June... Whats the chances eh? In Scotland anything can happen and often does. More on that later. For Victoria & Arfon's wedding I headed straight to The Royal College Of Surgeons to meet up with Arfon and the rest of the groomsmen. The guys had great banter as we grabbed a few fun shots before the rest of the guests arrived. It wasn't long before Victoria's wedding car pulled up and she stepped out. She looked beautiful as the passers by in Nicolson Street stopped to watch as she approched Surgeons Hall with her father. Aside from a last minute hiccup with the paperwork (Someone had it all along but forgot they had it), the ceremony was lovely. Candles lit, vows exchanged, rings put on fingers and a kiss. The main hall with all the historic paintings added some serious gravitas too.
We did all the family photos inside in the round marble hall as it was absolutly lashing it down outside. The kind of rain that seems to bounce off the pavement. Didn't matter though as the light there is perfect for photographs anyway so nothing lost there. I then headed outside with Victoria and Arfon but we stayed under the big imposing stone arch as literally a few feet from us there was a river running by it was raining so hard. If you pick the right venue however, it doesn't matter. Surgeons Hall is such a spectacular building both inside and out, it doesn't matter if it pours down.
After the speeches and meal the guests danced the night away to end a beautiful wedding with two lovely people.
