Lothian Chambers and Prestonfield House Hotel Wedding. We’ve had an absolutely miserable winter here in Edinburgh. It’s one of the worst I can remember and as I’m writing this blog post it’s nearly April and just yesterday (28th March) it was snowing. It’s been really challenging as in previous winters I’ve either worked full time or at least part time in office jobs but now I’m doing photography full time I’m out in all kinds of weather conditions several times (at least) per week.
So it was an absolute joy when I photographed Sue and Julian’s wedding at the beginning of March in some of the nicest weather we’ve had this year so far. Sure it was a little cold but the sun was warm and for this time of the year you couldn’t ask for better weather.
Sue and Julian booked me in the autumn and live near Gloucester, an area I know extremely well. I lived in Herefordshire/Gloucestershire from the age of around 8 until I was 19 so I know both counties very well and in many ways still miss living down there.
Back to the wedding, it was a small affair with just Sue and Julian with myself and Liv acting as witnesses at Lothian Chambers Registrars Office. Liv only stayed until just after the ceremony but following the ceremony I took Sue and Julian to a few different locations around Edinburgh’s Old Town and then we headed down to Prestonfield House to take some photos inside and main.
Both Sue and Julian were a real delight to work with. Julian was a little nervous in front of the camera but after a few shots he relaxed and this really shone through with the photos. Sue looked really beautiful and I really couldn’t have asked for a nicer couple to work with.
