Prestonfield House Hotel Wedding. I thought I’d start off my wedding blogging for the year with a recent wedding I photographed at Prestonfield House Hotel. Wedding photography is a funny business, I’ll suddenly get booked up for multiple jobs at the same venue and the next year I won’t see it at all.
Prestonfield is a good example of this. In 2011 I did a few jobs at Prestonfield, which incidentally is still one of my very favourite venues in the Edinburgh area, but 2012 I think I maybe visited their once or twice (max). So just before Christmas I was contacted by Shona and Neil at fairly short notice to photograph their wedding at Prestonfield.
This was absolutely great as nothing against Lothian Chambers, but for the last couple of years at least I’ve started my wedding photography for the year at Lothian Chambers.
So this wedding at Prestonfield House was quite a short booking, just four hours but it absolutely flew by and both Shona and Neil were really easy to work with. I arrived a short time before the ceremony, photographed the ceremony in the Garden Room then we headed outside to take some group photos. With the wedding being in January it was absolutely freezing outside so we limited the group shots and then took some photos in the gardens. Following this my job was to really capture ambient photos which I really enjoyed. I stayed up until everyone sat down for the meal and I have to say the Garden Room looked absolutely stunning for both the wedding and the reception.
All in all it was a really great wedding. Shona and Neil as mentioned were really easy to work with and Shona looked beautiful in her dress. Just can’t wait to photograph my next wedding at Prestonfield!
