It’s always great to photograph weddings in new locations, and Lynsey and Keith’s Edinburgh Conference Centre wedding was no exception, what a wonderful venue for a wedding.
I’d recently photographed Lynsey and Keith during our evening pre-wedding photo shoot at Harlaw Reservoir. I knew from our initial meeting that they would be really good fun and relaxed when being photographed.
Lynsey and the girls were getting pampered and prepared at Lynsey’s parent’s house in nearby Currie. Everyone was relaxed and enjoying a wee glass of bubbly before departing for Edinburgh Conference Centre.
Located within Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh Conference Centre is a brilliant wedding venue. I’d visited the venue a few days before the wedding to familiarise myself with the layout. What a fantastic job everyone did of transforming a functional conference hall into a beautifully lit and stylish wedding venue. Very impressive!
Groom Keith was relaxed and looking forward to marrying his beautiful bride Lynsey.
Bride Lynsey arrived in a lovely old Morris Minor convertible car, accompanied by her dad.
The wonderfully personal Humanist wedding ceremony was hosted by one of my favourite Humanist celebrants, Brian Hawkins. A perfect wedding ceremony – sincere, heartfelt, entertaining and memorable, from the vows it was clear Lynsey and Keith are perfectly matched.
Afterwards, there was the customary glass of champagne followed by a selection of family and friend group photos.
The October weather was good enough for us to head outside and shoot a selection of newly-wed photos on the lawn and around the grounds of the Conference Centre.
The rest of this wonderful occasion was celebrated in style in the main function room within the Edinburgh Conference Centre.
Heartfelt, sincere and amusing speeches were followed by the arrival of the evening guests and the start of the evening celebrations.
I hope you enjoy this selection of my favourite Edinburgh Conference Centre wedding photos!
