Julie & Bruce's wedding, Edinburgh

13th November 2011
Destiny Church, Edinburgh was the venue for this wedding... a converted cinema on Gorgie Road. The obvious thing about cinemas is the lack of windows for natural light... so for the first time I had to use some flash lighting. Thankfully Pastor Pete who was running the ceremony was ok with that.

But because of the fast flow of the wedding from front of stage to back cafe area I couldn't afford the time to mount up my speed-lites into the stands on the stage then dismantle them for the other areas, so I had to take along two of our studio heads to light up the main stage area, with my portable speedlites set-up to be slapped onto the camera when we switched areas.

Anyway, enough of my technical gibberish :)

The wedding was lovely, Julie & Bruce are both born again Christians but without overpowering their friends and family with religion, they & Pastor Pete led a very emotional and loving ceremony, which it was obvious to see, meant so much to the couple.

The Church band played rousing versions of Hymns through an excellent in house PA system that any band would love to be plugged into, and between the live music & singing, the ceremony was really uplifting and emotional. Have to admit there were a few times I almost got caught up in it all and joined in... having to remind myself I had a job to do... as I darted from stage left, to stage right, up to the balcony and back again... no wonder my legs are aching this morning :)

Julie & Bruce had a great day, and as a small extra bonus to all three of us we're doing a post wedding shoot... with wedding dress , kilts and all at Dirleton Castle next month. (Julie had seen Louise & Allister's photos and loved the photos from within the Kings Chamber).

So... all the best to Julie & Bruce... Mr & Mrs McEwen... see you both very soon !

(Full portfolio will be up in the gallery for friends & family soon, once J&B have had their viewing)
