Harriett and Jacks wedding day kicked off with bridal prep in sunny Portobello. It's an area I'd never really been to before but one look at the beach and I was sold. Natural light plays a massive role in my work so I was happy to see that the house we were photographing in had an abundance as it makes my life that much easier.
The ceremony itself was also in Edinburgh, a large beautiful church called St John's. I've unfortunately had a few issues when photographing in churches in the past but I'm glad to say there wasn't any here and the service itself went well.
Afterwards it was an hours long bus journey down to another new venue, Wedderburn castle and barns. All I can say is wow! Such a stunning venue and the grounds are to die for and even though the light was rather harsh I'd have easily photographed there all afternoon with Harriett and Jack if I had the time. Speeches were funny, especially from the groom himself and then we managed another quick couple shoot in before the dancing started.
Ceilidhs will always be one of my favourite things to photograph. The energy in the room and the participation of most guests makes for some great photographs. As I was staying until the very end I managed to do a sunset shoot too. If time permits, I'd recommend one as they really can be special if the light is good which in this case it was.
After the ceilidh finished it was back to some regular music and the party was in full swing, things started to get a little drunken but fun to capture before I bid my farewells and headed on the bus back home.
Here's some of my favourite photographs from the day, thanks for having me along guys.
