A Very St Andrean Wedding

Okay, I admit it, I absolutely love weddings!

Last month, I was lucky enough to travel to Edinburgh for the wedding of my friend Rozz. I went to university with these two love birds; Rozz was one of my Art Historian colleagues, and also the president of the Art History Society. So, I suppose you could say that she was my friend and my boss.

The couple are a laid back pair, but both with aesthetic eyes & the taste for something different. I was so happy to be part of their day, and true to form, I snapped a few dozen pictures along the way. The bride really doesn't enjoy having her picture taken, so I've only included a few snaps of her. They also hired a documentary photographer so I'm very much looking forward to seeing those prints. I imagine my camera will be in my hand in all the ones of me.

This lovely itinerary/table favour combo was the only hint of a "theme" or a colour palette. And the box was full of chocolate: amazing!

Rozz's best woman was my dear friend Colleen, who travelled all the way from the U.S. of A to Edinburgh for the celebration. She made all the little place settings by hand, which I'm sure you'll agree are pretty lovely. & the easel was such a lovely art historical head-nod.

I had a spare day between the ceremony and the hen party, so I moseyed on over to the lovely St Andrews which was bathed in glorious sunlight.

I always enjoy taking pictures of the cathedral. It has so much character and is so representative of the town itself.

We spent Friday night eating fish & chips at the top of a huge hill in Edinburgh.

My lovely cousin Sarah & her boyfriend Andrew were our wonderful & long-suffering hosts. 

Onto the actual day!
The gorgeous Olivia had flown in from Madrid for the wedding.

& the gorgeous Georgia had flown in from Rome.

Colleen's mum had given her lots of tiny tubes of bubbles, which ended up being a pretty & whimsical alternative to confetti!

After the ceremony, we headed over to the Scotch Whisky Experience.

& then to the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art for dinner.

The blushing bride.

The dashing groom.

& that's me!

I love taking photographs of people I care about, especially during significant moments of their lives. I have my own little pieces of their day, and hopefully they enjoyed getting to see their celebrations through someone else's eyes.
