Royal College Of Surgeons Edinburgh Wedding
I recently had the pleasure of photographing Claire and Colin’s brilliant Royal College Of Surgeons Edinburgh wedding day.
Also known as Surgeons Hall, this exquisite Edinburgh city centre venue is a grand location perfect for a winter wedding.
Surgeon’s Hall is a fantastic city centre wedding venue, with plenty of space and natural light. Winter weddings can be trickier to photograph due to the lack of light, but no such worries here. Surgeon’s Hall also has lots of areas which are away from the wedding guests, just perfect for capturing beautiful shots of the newly-weds while the guests enjoy a glass of champagne and a few canapés.
Claire and the girls were provided with a private room for their preparations. Amy from the Made Over Ladies was there to beautify the ladies. This was a nice and relaxed part of the day, totally stress free, bubbly freely flowing and everyone having a good bit of banter. I love to capture detail shots of this part of the day. Aside from the usual shots of the dresses, I just had to take a photo of Claire’s amazing wedding footwear. A regular pair of wedding shoes wasn’t Claire’s style. She bought a pair of white patent leather knee high boots instead. Definitely different to the typical wedding shoes I see every week!
Groom Colin works part-time as a fireman in East Lothian. After the wedding ceremony a few of his colleagues created a ‘guard of honour’ for the newly-weds, using their axes instead of swords!
The wedding breakfast and speeches took place in the impressive Playfair Hall. I loved photographing the speeches, lots of laughter and heartfelt thanks mean I can photograph a wide range of emotions.
In the evening the celebrations continued in the contemporary Wolfson Hall located within the Quincentenary Building. The newly-weds cut their wedding cake to rapturous applause, followed by the party getting under way with the first few dances of the evening.
I had the most amazing day taking photos for Claire and Colin. This was my first time at Surgeon’s Hall, I really look forward to being there again in future. A few wedding photos telling the story of Claire and Colin’s wedding day can be viewed below. Enjoy!
