I recently had a really fun day filming Susannah and Nathan’s Edinburgh City Chambers wedding. This lovely couple were married at Edinburgh City Chambers, located on the Royal Mile. Afterwards, the wedding reception was held at The Royal Botanical Gardens, Edinburgh.
It was Armed Forces day in Edinburgh. The city centre was packed with lots of tourist,s and the City Chambers was hosting an event to celebrate the day. As a result, there were lots of military top brass and politicians coming into City Chambers. But before the Armed Forces event, Susannah was due to get married to Nathan.
Susannah arrived on time in spite of the road closures and hordes of tourists. Both she and Nathan were so clearly in love, they couldn’t stop smiling! The ceremony was really lovely and good fun to watch and film. Afterwards, the newly-weds were congratulated by all their guests, then waited to have a few photos taken inside City Chambers. While they were waiting, First Minister Alex Salmond was making his way into the building. So the newly-weds were asked if they would like to meet the First Minister! I was there to capture the meeting on video. Alex Salmond was very gracious, congratulating the newly-weds and posing for a few photos with them.
The video below shows Susannah and Nathan’s meeting with Alex Salmond. The newly-weds were quite amused at the meeting. It was funny to be there in front of all these people and see the First Minister ‘chatting up’ Susannah!
Afterwards, we made our way outside to the Royal Mile for the confetti shower. The place was packed with tourists, and as always they had their cameras out to try and capture a photo of the beautiful bride! A great fun and slightly surreal start to this amazing wedding day!
