Winter wedding: Beth + Jenn

2016 February 6

It was truly magical day last Saturday on a Beth and Jenn’s wedding. The snow has fallen, than sunshine came out, and  the love and joy has been spread in every corner at the Carberry Tower. 

Beth and Jenn are fun, funny, vibrant, joyous people with a remarkable circle of friends and family in their lives.  Thank you all for sharing this impeccable day with me, and allowing me to document it for you!

Summerhall wedding: Anne + Dave

2016 January 12

Anne and Dave wanted something quirky, yet elegant. If you’re looking for a lovely, industrial and quirky wedding, look no further than Summerhall in Edinburgh. I have shoot there for the first time and I absolutely love it! There is so many rooms to be used if the weather isn’t good and the space is spectacular for a big wedding. Anne and Dave were getting ready at the 15 Apartment Rutland Hotel and then they head for the ceremony and reception to the Summerhall. When I arrive in the morning I found out that Anne did not sleep all night from excitement and nerves. I was a bit worry for her if she can survive the whole day on the feet but I needed not to worry! Once she saw Dave at the end of the aisle her inner power of love and strength bust the highest level and continued to be for the rest of the day! I loved the fact that Dave was singing happily along to “My Girl” – The Temptations song when Anne was walking down the aisle  with her dad. I think lyrics perfectly fitted the day and their relationship –

” I’ve got sunshine on a cloudy day.
When it’s cold outside I’ve got the month of May.

I guess you’d say
What can make me feel this way?
My girl (my girl, my girl)
Talkin’ ’bout my girl “

Here are a few photos from their day!

Save The Date: Anne + David, Heriot-Watt University

2016 January 5
They met at university back in 2007 at Heriot-Watt University. Her curly hair was the first thing which attract Dave and since then he wanted to get to know Anne more… It wasn’t until a couple of years later until they met properly and started chatting to each other and there was an instant spark between them and much laughter.
Their first date was at the pub in Edinburgh, both quite nervous, but chatted the night away and ended getting a take out pizza and sat on the street to eat it, whilst they were arranging date number two. Fun and laugh it’s what their life is about. Having the same life values it’s the way to start life together. After 7 years of being together Dave proposed during Easter weekend using a surprise Easter Egg hunt in their flat, with the final clue, reading “will you marry me?” – which came as a total surprise to Anne. They were so happy and excited! 
So the hunting get to end as they will tie the knot this Saturday! 
For their engagement session, they returned to the place they met: Heriot – Watt University . They walked hand-in-hand through the campus  and later we catch some wonderful sunset …

Wedding: Elaine + Ross, Macdonald Houstoun House

2016 January 4

What can I say the 2016 started with big style and on the 2nd of January I had a privilege to document Elaine and Ross’s wedding at the Macdonald Houstoun House. It was quite chilly outside as you can imagine at that time of the year, but the atmosphere, love and emotions were keeping everyone warm. Elaine was glowing on the day – she was sure stunning bride! Boys was keeping company for Ross as he was getting a bit nervous before the ceremony. But once he saw beautiful Elaine walking down the aisle with dad he gave her huge smile and all the nerves went away.It’s always great to see two people starting their lives together as husband and wife and when two families become one. It was a huge honor to capture this day for you Elaine and Ross. I know nothing but great things are is store for you! 


I was bit under pressure on the day as it’s not easy to photograph someone who is photographer itself. Yes Ross is a photographer too. I want to say special thank you for the trust! Please take look at his website
