It’s great to be back in Edinburgh city centre shooting Clare and Craig’s Edinburgh George Hotel wedding photos.
Clare and Craig chose to marry in a wonderfully romantic ceremony at the impressive Edinburgh George Hotel in Edinburgh’s New Town at George Street.

Pre-wedding photos at Inverleith Park
I had previously met Clare and Craig on a couple of occasions.
The first meeting was at our initial consultation and again at Clare and Craig’s pre-wedding photoshoot at Inverleith Park, Edinburgh.
From our time together I discovered that Clare and Craig are a lovely couple, warm, friendly and relaxed in front of a camera.
My photography coverage of the day began with the bridal party preparations in The George Hotel’s spacious Forthview Suite.
The champagne flowed, and the girls were excited, laughing and having fun.
Craig and the boys were downstairs meeting and greeting family and friends as they entered the beautiful King’s Hall.
This spacious room is one of my favourite places for a wedding ceremony, a very grand and ornate space that never fails to impress.
The wedding ceremony was a joy to photograph. I loved hearing the story behind how Clare and Craig met and fell in love.
There was a lot of emotion on display, with smiles, laughter, and even a few tears. Clare and Craig looked so happy as they were announced as the new Mr. and Mrs!
Newlywed photos at Queen Street Gardens
When you marry at the George Hotel, you can access Queen Street Gardens.
This spacious private park is just a few minutes walk away and is the perfect setting for taking photos of the newlyweds.
Clare and Craig looked so happy together and I loved the photos we took at Queen Street Gardens.
Speeches in the King’s Hall
The celebration continued at the hotel as the newlyweds were piped into the King’s Hall to rapturous applause from family and friends.
Heartfelt speeches had everyone clapping, laughing and cheering; as with the ceremony, there were even a few tears.
An evening reception in the King’s Hall
My coverage of this wonderful celebration ended with the cutting of the delicious wedding cake and photographing the first few dances.
By the time I left, the dancefloor was packed with dancers all partying hard into the night.
Congratulations to Clare and Craig You were a pleasure to photograph!
These wedding photos are going to be made into a stunning wedding album, a fitting tribute to such a great day.
