Back in October I photographed a Edinburgh Castle Wedding for Suzy and Kevin. Suzy is from Ireland and Kevin is Scottish but they live in Canada and decided to come back to Edinburgh to get married. You probably read the first line saying they got married in October but such is my life now it’s taken four months to update this blog with the photos from this wedding.
The day started off with a really brief session of preparation shots from which I then headed up to Edinburgh castle. The wedding was held in St Margaret’s Chapel right at the top of the castle and the ceremony was due to take place at 1.30 but as agreed I arrived there really early and for the first time I was able to see the 1 o’clock gun fire.
The ceremony itself was fairly short but really great. The minister was really funny and despite the numerous tourists that hung around the chapel during the ceremony it was a really great wedding. Following the ceremony we took some group shots on the lawn outside and following this Suzy, Kevin and myself headed into Old Town to take some more personal photos in some of my favourite people places. After this we went back to the castle where I took some more group photos and some ambient photos in the Great Hall.
Once everyone had sat down I then disappeared for a few hours and rejoined the wedding party for their evening reception which was held at Howies on Waterloo Place. Both Liv and I have yet to eat at a Howies restaurant but each time we’ve been past the food smells really excellent, so one day we’re determined to give them a go.
So that’s it for this wedding, it was a pretty short day for myself but Suzy and Kevin were really great to work with and I thoroughly enjoyed the whole day. Below is a really small selection of my favourite photos from the day.
