I recently had the pleasure of creating Alex and Sandra's George Heriot's wedding photo slideshow. This wonderful wedding took place at the beautiful George Heriot's school, right in the heart of Edinburgh city centre.
I cover many weddings every year, but it's always fantastic to be working in my home town. Edinburgh is a wonderful city to get married in. It's great because of the significant number of prestigious wedding venues and wealth of outdoor locations offering beautiful backdrops for wedding photos.
This was my first wedding at George Heriot's school. This is one of Edinburgh's (and Scotland's) most historic and prestigious schools. Former pupils can request permission to be married in the school's beautiful private chapel. What a great venue for a wedding. The rear of the school offers one of the best views of Edinburgh Castle. The entrance to the chapel was accessed to the rear of the building, making it the perfect location to take some stunning newly-wed photos.
Former George Heriot's pupil Alex was very relaxed. We took a walk around the grounds of the school and shot a few portrait photos. As Alex waited in the chapel his bride-to-be Sandra arrived. She too was lovely and relaxed, so I knew this was going to be a great day and we'd have fun during our photo shoot.
After a beautifully romantic wedding ceremony everyone headed outside where we took advantage of the beautiful sunny weather to shoot a few more photos. The school has a central 'Quadrant' which is basically a large courtyard. This was ideal for photos, with the large door of the chapel making a beautiful background for a number of photos.
I always recommend to clients to choose about 10 group photos. This gives a good and varied selection of photos, while leaving the newly-weds and myself enough time to shoot a few striking taking contemporary wedding photos. The grounds of the school, the dwindling sunlight and the backdrop of Edinburgh Castle all meant beautiful wedding photos were a breeze. I'm very pleased with the results and you can see a selection of these beautiful photographs in this brilliant George Heriot's wedding photo slideshow:
