Sophie & Ross’ wedding, Mansfield Traquair, Edinburgh – We Fell In Love blog

We were so excited this morning to see Sophie & Ross’ wedding feature on We Fell In Love blog. Not only are we practically neighbours with Mansfield Traquair, but we also happen to think it’s one of the most incredible places to get married in Edinburgh (and Scotland, come to think of it).
Sophie & Ross’ wedding was one of those days where we smile so much, we can’t really call it work at all. They had an amazing team of suppliers and it was such a beautiful, fun day. Check out the dancefloor shots to see what we mean!
The wonderful events team are holding a Wedding Open Weekend today and tomorrow, so be sure to pop along if you are free and looking for a city venue with added wow factor.

Nicola & Ed – St Andrews Engagement Shoot

When you think of January, a photoshoot on the Scottish coast might not be the first thing that springs to mind. And okay, so it was a bit nippy out (to put it mildly), but after the stormy waves (which were keeping the local surfers very happy) came beautiful sunshine. Nicola & Ed are getting married at the stunning Mansfield Traquair in Edinburgh, and we have a feeling it’s going to be an all-round amazing day.

2014 Wedding Photography Highlights

Eight years on since we launched Elemental, and selecting our highlights of the year’s wedding photography doesn’t get any easier – it’s one of our favourite, yet trickiest, end of year tasks!

2014 was a year full of beautiful moments and we met some incredible people along the way – new friends who feel like old friends, wonderful grandparents and even Sir Tom Jones (I must confess that my heart still races a little when I think about this – Christina)!

As well as being back at some of our most favourite wedding venues (who we’d like to say a huge thank you to for recommending us as their trusted suppliers), we got to see lots of incredible new places along the way too. And we were thrilled to finally get to visit the famous Gretna Green, when we photographed a beautiful wedding there this summer.

From Destination Scotland weddings – where the couples travelled thousands of miles to be married on our shores – to stunning Persian wedding ceremonies, it’s been a year packed full of joy, laughter, love, and so, so much pretty!

And to top it all off, we picked up some very lovely new bling along the way too at the Scottish Master Photographer of the Year Awards.

But more on that later, we know you’re really just waiting for Sir Tom…

And the best thing is, we get to do it all over again this year… C&J x

Scottish winter landscape photography

We are often asked what we love to photograph, outside of weddings and portraits. One of the things that I’ve always gone back to throughout my years of clicking away at the world, is landscape photography. Not just because of the “look at all of the pretty” side of it (which is admittedly a big part), but because it almost always includes some sort of mini adventure. Whether that be waking up in the middle of the night and driving through the dark to see the sun fall across the sea, or hiking out with camera, camping and cooking gear to get the warmth of first or last light in a glen or mountain top. Landscapes have always fulfilled my addiction for the outdoors.

Now here’s some of that “look at all of the pretty”  I mentioned, from  this winter’s mini adventures…

If you want to keep up to date on my outdoor pursuits, you can follow me on Instagram, where I share both smartphone and ‘big camera’ photography.

Christina & Lee – Edinburgh City Chambers

Even after 8 years of photographing weddings here in Edinburgh, we’re still discovering new (to us!) venues. We’d been really looking forward to Christina & Lee’s winter wedding at Edinburgh City Chambers – an elegant building that we regularly walk by but hadn’t seen inside before. And we knew that we were in for a very fun day with these two and their wonderful family and friends.  And we weren’t wrong! We wish Christina & Lee all the very best in their new adventure as husband and wife!
