It was a pleasure to film Deborah and Scott’s recent Canongate Kirk wedding day at this beautiful Royal wedding venue. The weather was lovely, the ceremony was just perfect.
You may have noticed the news reports about the forthcoming Royal wedding. Today Edinburgh’s historic Royal Mile will be closed to almost everyone. Except guests at the ‘other Royal wedding’ of Zara Phillips and Mike Tindall. Almost no-one getting else gets so much as a peep inside the church due to the high security around the venue. Well fear not, for a couple of months ago I had the honour of being the official videographer for the wedding of Deborah and Scott. They were married at this historic venue, and held their wedding reception at The Edinburgh Academy in Stockbridge. If you fancy a look inside this wonderful old church then you’ve come to the right place!
I’ve filmed a couple of other weddings at Canongate Kirk and love the venue for its gorgeous light. Especially when compared to many other old churches, this church is extremely well lit, with lots of natural light. The layout of the interior of the church is perfect for filming unobtrusively. Filming a wedding here really is a pleasure. Every time I’ve filmed a Canongate Kirk wedding there have been crowds of tourists armed with their cameras. All waiting to capture a photo of the happy couple! All part of the fun of a city centre wedding.
The Minister for the Royal’s Canongate Kirk wedding will be the Reverend Neil Gardner. He’s a very pleasant man, very distinguished looking wearing a set of red robes. You can catch a glimpse of Neil in the opening sequence of this wedding video.
The music heard in this wedding video was specially chosen by newly-weds Deborah and Scott.
