Alanna & Neil's wedding in Edinburgh's Balmoral Hotel

20th April 2018
Who wouldn't like to have or go to a wedding at Edinburgh's rather fabby Balmoral Hotel. To my knowledge I'd never set foot in the place before (although I'm sure my mum will tell me I was there for tea in 1970 or something.

But yeah , what a great place, and Alanna had bagged the JK Rowling suite. After working out my logistics for the day, I arrived super early to scout around and plan my day... catching up with Alanna, mum and maid-of-honour Emily as I went about checking all the nooks and crannies.

As every wedding day goes... after a slow and easy first few hours, as soon as 1pm came I was darting up and down stairs and lifts catching up with Neil & his guys, and back up to the girls.
The ceremony was soon upon us and it was all just lovely. What an amazing surrounding to be in... and the love within Alanna & Neil just made it even more special.

Pretty soon, we had commandeered a nice spot to run through the family photos before getting access to the roof for some shots... unfortunately it just started to rain at that point so I had to be quick.
But with exquisite staircases, we weren't stuck for photo opps.

My favourite part of the day (the bride & groom photos) always goes to quick as I have to hand the newly weds over to the hotel staff and they sat down for their speeches then wedding breakfast.
But not before we had to walk through the busy restaurant full of chattering woman having high teas... but as soon as Alanna walked in... you could hear a pin drop as they all looked on frozen :)
I was around to capture the first dances too, and once again the surroundings were just brilliant for that, with very nice lighting inside, just enough to let some of Edinburgh's city lights shine though the windows.

A super fab day.

Here's the slideshow of the day's highlights, and below that a link that will take you to the full Gallery where you can see all the photos, and even order print copies direct.
