Sarah & Mark @ Edinburgh Castle

12th May 2012
It was Edinburgh Castle yesterday - for Sarah & Mark's wedding.
Not the most sunny of days... it rained right up until about 8pm... but that didn't dampen the spirits of anyone attending the wedding, least of all Sarah or Mark.

The ceremony took place in St Margaret's Chapel in Edinburgh Castle, one of the (if not THE) oldest buildings in Edinburgh - built by David I around 1130. It's a very small chapel, but still hugely popular for weddings. You just need to keep the tourists out while there's a wedding on - but the staff at the castle do that well.
It's obviously a very popular visitor attraction, so getting any pictures without lots (and lots) of inquisitive tourists in the photo was a challenge and a few had to be asked politely (but strongly) to heave ho out the way :)
Sometimes it was fun to include them and you can see that in the picture below taken in the Great Hall where we executed plan B for the family group shots.
(Plans C & D were used at times throughout the day as the wedding's uniqueness and weather sent curved balls every now and again to test me out.)

The ceremony was performed by Bill Nisbet, a friend of Sarah's family, and it was loving & fun. Everyone that was in the wedding party performed their part well it must be said. Mark and his best man Gary are both in the Army, and their speeches were handled with typical military precision and efficiency :)
The reception & evening's entertainment were held at The Glen Golf Club in North Berwick, and again the staff there looked after everyone well.
There's some gorgeous views and (if the weather permits) a great beach for some photography. Alas - that didn't work out for us this weekend, but the band for the night "Bleeker" were excellent - a 2 piece combo playing a great range of toons.

So all in all - a great day, and a great start to wedded life for the new Mr & Mrs Purves.

All the best to Sarah & Mark x.
