It’s was an absolute honour to be Iain and Louise’s Royal Scots Club Edinburgh wedding photographer.
Coverage of this wonderful wedding day began with the arrival of the groom and guests at the impressive St. Cuthbert’s RC Church on Slateford Road in Edinburgh. The interior of this church is beautiful, with lots of natural light, just perfect for photos.
Both Iain and Louise arrived at the church in a lovely old Volkswagen Camper Van. There was no sign of nerves from either Iain or Louise. From our previous meeting at our pre-wedding day photoshoot in Queen Street Gardens, I had a feeling they would be relaxed and a just a wee bit excited.
Church ceremonies can sometimes be a bit formal, however, the Priest conducting today’s ceremony was a real character, bringing warmth and humour to the proceedings.
One highlight of the wedding ceremony was the fantastic choir who sang during the hymns and signing of the marriage schedule.
After the wedding ceremony and a few minutes of congratulations from family and friends, the newlyweds departed for their wedding reception at The Royal Scots Club. This beautiful venue is located in Edinburgh’s historic New Town and is created from the merging of magnificent old town-houses to create a gorgeous and spacious building in which to hold a wedding reception.
A big bonus of booking The Royal Scots Club Edinburgh wedding venue is that you have use of the beautiful Queen Street Gardens directly opposite. This oasis in the heart of the bustling city is a photographers dream. With lots of green space, it’s the perfect location for the group photos and newly-wed photos.
The remainder of the day was spent back at The Royal Scots Club. I loved the speeches, plenty of laughter and heartfelt thanks. I really enjoy photographing people’s emotions and reactions at a wedding.
In the evening, the newlyweds cut their wedding cake before taking to the dance floor for their first dance. A brilliant end to a wonderful wedding day.
