I recently had the pleasure of covering Kim and Charles’ Edinburgh Capital Hotel wedding. Great to see this lovely wedding venue had recently been refurbished. Located in the west of the city, the Edinburgh Capital Hotel is a great wedding venue which I’d not been to before.
A few weeks before their wedding day I met Kim and Charles at the Edinburgh Capital Hotel for a pre-wedding photo shoot. This was a great opportunity to get to know the couple, shoot a few photos of them and find out how they felt being in front of a camera.
Unfortunately, unlike the day of our pre-wedding photo shoot, the weather on Kim and Charles’ wedding day was wet and miserable and not well suited for outdoor wedding photography! So ‘Plan B’ was put into effect and after shooting a few group photos after the wedding ceremony we headed off to the Water Of Leith in Stockbridge to shoot some newly-wed photos. Using the cover of the archway at The Dene meant we could get some cool and contemporary wedding photos even though it was pouring rain!
Back at the Edinburgh Capital Hotel I grabbed a few photos of the newly-weds in and around the foyer area. Using a patterned wall as a backdrop meant we could still shoot photos while still having a pleasing background. Also, having a scout around during our pre-wedding photo shoot meant I was able to note locations which would be suitable and not prone to getting in the way of the guests.
As this was an all day booking I photographed the speeches, cutting of the wedding cake and first few dances. Being Kim and Charles’ wedding photographer for the day was great fun and I really look forward to going back to the Edinburgh Capital Hotel in future.
Congratulations to Kim and Charles.
