Victoria & Neil's wedding at Edinburgh Zoo

03rd December 2015
Victoria & Neil brought their families to Edinburgh for their wedding at the fabulous Zoo. I've not been there in a year or so for a wedding, but I knew it has the amazing mansion house - and if weather allows - spectacular views across the city to the Pentland Hills.

But this is November, we've been lucky with most winter weddings this year, and we were hoping that this one would hold out for us too... our last wedding photography gig of the year.
Alas, it was drizzly all day.
Throughout the course of the day we managed some lovely inside shots of Vic & Neil though, and we still managed to go outside to try a sparkler shot, but we had to do it in the last of the afternoon light, so we couldn't get the usual crackling bright look you get with these shots.
We tried different people running around our happy couple (including Annie) but at 5 seconds (too short) or 10 seconds there was just too much ambient light.
In the end we took a batch of sparklers and with one last effort managed to write "love" behind them.

We did well considering the cold, wet, windy and bright conditions :)

Earlier in the afternoon the wedding party got to go and see the pandas - which was a novelty for a wedding, and we even managed 5 minutes in the monkey house.

The staff at the Mansion House made sure the ceremony room was cleared so we managed to make use of a lot of inside space for some bride & groomies, seeing as a casual trip around outside just wasn't going to happen.
It's all fine having brollies & wellies, but if your having your face chill blasted it aint a smiling occasion :)

While we were waiting to get Vic & Neil into their wedding breakfast, we even managed a few more sneaky pics in the halls of the house. You just can't pass up an opportunity.

All to soon though, we were packing up and heading along the A1 at the end of another fab wedding, and the end of a brilliant year of wedding photography.

Here's a small sample of the photos so far, and the slideshow above ^^ .

The full portfolio is in our Gallery Section now, but you'll need the password from Victoria & Neil to get access.

Here's to the new Mr & Mrs Birkett ! And a fab wedding at Edinburgh Zoo !
