Susan & Peter had a lovely wedding despite the constant rain and the darkness of the day making it a tricky one to photograph. Susan was getting ready at The Balmoral Hotel where I joined her for a short spell before heading to St Andrew’s Roman Catholic Church on Belford Road. The church was beautiful, built in wood and I was told it had been imported from Austria…very impressive. Wedding Photographer Kim Gates had agreed to spend an hour with Craig and his friends getting ready at the house.
The ceremony at the church proved awkward to photograph in on such a dark day but with the very accommodating priest I was still able to capture some lovely pictures of the ceremony, even if the planned celebrations outside the church were cut short because of the downpour (which didn’t seem to effect the couple at all!).
Arriving at The Edinburgh College Of Physicians on Queen Street we had decided to drop straight into some portraits and group shots while we waited for the other guests to arrive by coach. The ERCP has some amazing rooms and atmospheric backdrops for photographs so the planned venture into Queen Street Gardens for photographs wasn’t missed.
As a short days shooting, all that was left was a brief interlude photographing the wedding drinks reception before guests were called to dinner in the spectacular dinning hall and our Bride & Groom made their entrance ready for a well deserved wedding breakfast. Hopefully the evening entertainment went just as well after I had left and Peter & Susan will have a long and happy married life together!
