Katie & James’ intimate Edinburgh Castle wedding

Whether you have weeks or months to plan your day, all that really matters is that you are marrying the one you love.

Katie and James had originally planned to get married in Devon next summer, but brought the date forward after finding out he was going to be deployed overseas. Edinburgh seemed like a good fit on such short notice – it’s where they met and James first told Katie he loved her at the Hogmanay fireworks on the esplanade.

They were married in St Margaret’s Chapel at Edinburgh Castle, in a ceremony conducted by James’ dad. After a trip to Mary’s Milk Bar in the Grassmarket for ice-cream, they headed to Aizle. Having sampled the pudding, Jay can confirm that the tasting menu is indeed delicious.

It was one of those days when the weather forecast looked pretty bleak, but – yet again! – things changed and after an atmospheric (aka soggy) start, the skies brightened and the most incredible sunset brought a breathtaking finish to the day.

Katie & James – We are so happy that we got to be part of your Edinburgh wedding! It’s clear that you are perfect together, and something tells us that married life will always be an adventure for the two of you. Christina & Jay x

 

Becky & Keenan’s wedding at The Caves, Edinburgh

We’re always excited to photograph Canadian weddings! Not only does Jay speak the language and gets to drop all those strange references that only fellow Canucks will understand, but they are always such warm, fun and memorable occasions! Ain’t no party like a Newfie party. 😉

If there was an award for the most fun ever had on the Red Bus, Becky and Keenan won it. Singing, taking in the sights and loads of laughter made for a very fun alternative drinks reception! We’re pretty sure the rest of Edinburgh wished they could join the party on wheels that day.

And as for the after party at The Caves – Oh. What. A. Night!

Becky & Keenan – Just one question, can we do it again?! Hope all your adventures in married life are as fun as this first one! Christina & Jay x

Christine and Andrew’s wedding at Glasgow University Chapel & Oran Mor

We always know we’re in for a treat when our wedding travels take us to Glasgow – it’s a city with a great energy and we love the creative vibe (we’ve been tempted to move there more than once!).

Not only that, but we were also really looking forward to photographing Christine and Andrew again after shooting their engagement photos in Autumn. Having two people in love, who feel comfortable enough to just be themselves in front of our cameras makes for the best photos!

We loved so many things about Christine & Andrew’s wedding, but most of all we loved the way they worked their favourite things into the day. Oran Mor is an incredible setting and it looked even more wonderful with the Harry Potter-inspired floating candles. I’ll confess that chemistry was my worst subject at school, but I now have a healthy appreciation for the periodic table. Their copper touches, chemical elements table plan and test tube favours (full of coffee beans and tea leafs), were just brilliant.

Add in a whole lot of love and laughter, plus some great action on the dancefloor (aren’t 1950s dresses just the best?!), and you can see why we left smiling from ear to ear.

Christine & Andrew – Getting to capture this first day of your new adventure together made us so very happy! We hope you enjoy this preview (and there’s so much more still to come!). Christina & Jay x

Holly & Kevin’s wedding at Fonab Castle, Perthshire

Just want to start this post by saying that we had huge smiles on our faces – not only all through Holly & Kevin’s wedding – but also during the entire time we were editing their photos. There’s something incredibly special about two people falling in love after being born thousands of miles apart. We love seeing the way everything just clicks when they bring their families and friends to an amazing place like this – it’s as though these people were always destined to love, laugh and celebrate together. And it reminds us of our own wedding!

Not only was Fonab Castle in Highland Perthshire the perfect setting for a beautiful day full of touching, heartfelt moments – but as the whisky flowed, so did the banter. And the pants (in the Scottish sense of the word) just kept coming off…

Holly & Kevin – One day with you and your awesome crew was not enough. We hope that these photos make you smile for many years to come! Christina & Jay x P.S. Hope your guestbook got home okay!

Danielle & Kevin’s wedding at Archerfield House and Waterfront, East Lothian

We’re more than a little in love with Archerfield. Not only is the country retreat an amazing place to spend your wedding weekend with your friends and family, but the grounds are beautiful too!

We had the best time there with Danielle & Kevin, who were married in a Humanist ceremony before partying the night away down at the Waterfront. Getting to dash down to the rocks for photos as the sun set was a highlight of the day – and a huge high five goes to Danielle for kicking off her shoes and climbing a rock in her Vera Wang dress to get these shots!

A special mention also has to go to their gorgeous little girl, Honey who, despite feeling very poorly with chicken pox on the day, was a wee trooper – fanning Danielle with a shoe box lid when she got a bit hot as her dress went on and dishing out lots of hugs. Such a little star!

Danielle & Kevin – We hope your photos help beat the post-honeymoon blues! We loved being part of your day and capturing all the love, laughter and action along the way. Christina & Jay x
