Tim & Emily | Outdoor countryside wedding

Tim & Emily, Outdoor English country marquee wedding

Tim and Emily's wedding took place in the tiny village of Stretton, just outside Peterborough. With everything in walking distance, we had the perfect day of sunshine to make the most of the beauty of the countryside surroundings. I arrived on Friday night to find the bridal party busy decorating the marquee which was in the middle of the field behind Emily's house. A Pinterest dream, the place was decorated with greenery, classy white table settings and a hay bale lined outdoor seating area where guests could relax by fire pits in the evening. 

Whilst the boys put the finishing touches to the marquee on the morning of the wedding, the girls relaxed and got ready at Emily's home. A shout out to Emily Millar Make-up who made the journey from Edinburgh to do an amazing job on the girls.

From Emily's home we walked down through the village, greeted by the residents who had worked hard all year planning and planting flowers in all the available spaces to bloom in time for the wedding. After an emotional ceremony in the local parish church we made use of the beautiful gardens in the area, sneaking around to find interesting walls and abundant cherry blossom trees. 

The party was in full swing when we arrived at the marquee (party tent) and we enjoyed nerf gun fights, sharing platters, more emotional speeches and later some incredible shapes being thrown on the dance-floor. 

A huge congratulations to Tim & Emily, you guys are flipping amazing. 

And a special shout out to Oscar who was once again, a great second shooter and all around top guy.

David & Alice | National Museum of Scotland Wedding Photography

When David and Alice said that they were planning to have their reception at The National Museum of Scotland I was so excited. I have been visiting there my whole life and it was like a childhood dream come true getting to walk around it after closing hours. 
Their wedding was so full of personal touches it's hard to know where to begin, but I feel like Alice's dress is a good place to start. Made by her mum, Alice's blue wedding dress was magical. I love it when people don't conform to a norm just for the sake of it. Alice still looked without a doubt like a bride and looked so beautiful without having to wear white. Not to mention the way it moved when she spun around and danced in it! 
They were married in Granton Parish church where David works and I loved that the local community were out to welcome then before and after the ceremony. It was very clear to see how loved they are in the area.
We moved on to The Nation Museum of Scotland's Tower Restaurant for the reception. With flowers by the wonderful Narcissus , our own private, circular roof terrace and a private tour of the museum after closing time. 
Just before dinner David, Alice and I snuck up to the roof terrace again for sunset and it was totally worth the time. The first film that the pair watched together was The Sound of Music so the natural thing to do when put on a round roof is to re-enact their favourite scene from the film.

So here it is, one truly unique and magical wedding...

Tim & Emily Engaged | Arthur Seat Engagement

A stormy evening in a ruined, candle-lit chapel on the edge of a extinct volcano.

Tim and Emily's engagement story is pretty special and I loved revisiting the spot on Arthur seat with them before wandering around some of their favourite parts of the Edinburgh new town. Having now made their home in Edinburgh, they are getting married in at Emily's garden at her family home in Stretton, Rutland in a beautiful marquee and I can't wait to be there!
