David and Isabel’s intimate wedding at The Edinburgh City Chambers

With only seven guest invited, this wedding was very special. I felt so lucky to witness and photograph such a small and intimate wedding between two people who are so madly in love.

Marriage is about the celebration of love, the love you have for your partner and also the love your family and friends combine together for you as a couple. This wedding was a beautiful celebration of love.

Edinburgh City Chambers intimate wedding

I love shooting weddings at The Edinburgh City Chambers. The venue is right in the heart of Edinburgh, placed half way up the famous Royal Mile, linking Edinburgh Castle and The Queens Palace.

Rowan and Alice got married here on the 17th August, 2018 close family and friends gathered bringing even more excitement to the bustling Royal Mile.

Their ceremony was relaxed and full of fun and laughter. It was a total pleasure to photograph.

Katie and Patoung – Edinburgh City Chambers Wedding

The City Chambers sits right on The Royal Mile, in-between the magnificent Edinburgh Castle and Holyrood Palace, one of the Queens Residences. What a special place for Katie and Patoung to get married and celebrate their love.

Katie and Patoung met in Loas. Patoung is Lao, and Katie is Scottish. Their wedding created a beautiful sense of two families coming together to celebrate.

Most people find planning one wedding hard work. Katie and Patoung had three wedding celebrations. Yes that’s right, three weddings! They officially got married here in Edinburgh where I had the privilege of photographing them. They also had ceremonies both in Asia and France, to celebrate with family that couldn’t travel to Scotland.

Engagement Shoot on Arthurs Seat

Arthurs seat is such a special place, a dormant volcano dating back to 335 million years ago. It is a magnificent sight within the beautiful city of Edinburgh. What better place for a very romantic, sunrise engagement shoot. Even if the sun didn’t come out behind the clouds, we were still able to use the gorgeous morning light.
From the moment Sheila agreed to a sunrise shoot I knew it was going to be great fun. We arranged to meet at 06:15 on a very dark winters morning near the pond and headed up Arthurs Seat.
Sheila and Seth engagement -2
Sheila and Seth, both Canadians, were so much fun. Sheila is living and studying in Edinburgh, whilst Seth was visiting for two weeks. They grabbed their chance to get some special engagement photos ahead of their wedding back in Canada this summer. Sheila loves studying in Edinburgh so it was extra special for her to have photographs to remember her time here.
Arthurs seat is such a great location for photography, really stunning, with great views and very accessible. A short 10 minute walk and we had views right down the beautiful East Coast of Scotland.
Up and over on the other side of the hill you get the most magnificent views of Edinburgh city and The Peatland Hills to the south.
I like to make each shoot unique, I found out through email chats that Sheilas favorite song just happen to be Sunrise by Norah Jones. I brought my portable speaker along just in case an opportunity organically came up to play the song for a bit of fun. Seth surprised Sheila with her hand made engagement ring that she hadn’t seen yet and proceeded to get down on one knee, I pressed play and the faint sounds of Norah Jones started to play, it was a very special moment.
We took a stroll around the hills, taking in the beautiful views and chatting about Seth’s trip to Edinburgh. It was such a relaxed, chilled shoot which I think really shows in the photos.
Sheila and Seth engagement -23
Engagement shoots are such a brilliant way of capturing a very special time in people’s lives. The wedding day is of course the big one, a huge celebration of love and commitment. I often feel that an engagement shoot is more intimate, no pressure of having guests, just two people in love having some pictures taken.
It was such a pleasure to take these photos for Sheila and Seth at this poignant time in their lives. They are living 3,317 miles away from each other due to work and study commitments yet are as madly in love as ever and they can’t wait to get married.
