Lothian Chambers Wedding for Vicky and Paul

Just a few weeks ago I photographed a wedding for Vicky and Paul at Lothian Chambers which I had been super excited about. Firstly Vicky and Paul came over all the way from Australia to get married here in Edinburgh (they’re not Australian btw, Vicky is from Kent and Paul is from Wales) but also because they hired the Red Bus.

As anyone who has been to Edinburgh will testity, the weather is erratic at best. Last year during the summer most days were really nice in the morning but changed for the worse in the afternoon. This year so far has been different, many mornings have been awful with nice afternoons.

I thought the wedding would be like this year and indeed up until the wedding it had been following the normal morning-grim / afternoon-nice pattern but immediately after the ceremony it chucked it down with rain so we unfortunately didn’t go through the normal set list of photos that I go through with couples. Instead after the ceremony we went outside, did some group shots then quickly made our way to the cloisters by the Advocates/Signet Library. We took a few photos there then we jumped on the Red Bus to do a quick tour of Edinburgh.

First of all it was great taking the Red Bus again, really good fun but I also sat in a different spot so it was much easier to take photos while on the move (first time with Alison and Barry was quite difficult). We also took a drive through Holyrood Park and over Salisbury Crags via Queen’s Drive. It’s funny but I live in Meadowbank which is about a 5 minute walk away from the Crags but there’s still so much to explore. The drive over the Crags was great and Dunsapie Loch, where the wedding party stopped to have their reception, was great.

The bus then drove back down Queens Drive and headed up Holyrood Road but it was at this point that I jumped off the bus as I wasn’t to be part of the evening do.

So here are some of my favourite captures from the day. I’m sure you’ll agree the photos on the Red Bus look like great fun.

    Hi Chris,

    I came across your lovely photos of some wedding parties on our bus and wondered if I could put a couple on our page?

    Really super set of photos you both look so happy, glad it was such a good day. I went to uni in Edinburgh so I know the weather well. Always wanted to visit Australia almost made it once, even got the visa but not the visit. Great to hear you’re settled you deserve it , good luck to you both.
