Today I had the pleasure of filming Fiona and Stuart’s brilliant Edinburgh Napier University Craighouse wedding. Yesterday was pouring rain. Today I was delighted to wake up to a beautiful sunny day. Clear blue skies. Not a cloud in site. Perfect weather for the perfect wedding day!
Fiona and Stuart’s wedding video begins with the bridal preparations. This took place at The Bruntsfield Hotel. Beautiful Fiona and her girls were getting their hair and make-up done. Most importantly, there was plenty of champagne for everyone!
I spent an hour filming the girls. Afterwards, it was time to head over to Edinburgh Napier University Craighouse Campus. This is a beautiful wedding venue. Groom Stuart looked great in his kilt. He was very calm and relaxed. Of course, this had nothing to do with the whisky flowing from the hip flasks!
Fiona and Stuart were married in a romantic civil wedding ceremony. This was followed by newly-wed photos taken around the grounds of Napier Craighouse Campus. What a beautiful location for wedding photography. Gorgeous, warm autumnal colours were everywhere. After their nwly-wed photos were taken, the newly-weds mingled with their guests and enjoyed a glass of champagne. I loved Fiona and Stuart’s 3-D wedding cake. This brilliant creation was covered with lots of white chocolate triangles. It looked really delicious!
It was good fun filming the receiving line, capturing the laughter and fun. Afterwards, the newly-weds were cheered into Turmeau Hall to excited applause. The grand Turmeau Hall at Napier was the setting for the wedding breakfast and speeches.
The evening celebrations continued in Turmeau Hall at Napier. The excellent live band The Strides provided the entertainment. I filmed the first few dances. One camera filmed the band, with the other camera filming the dancing. I used a Steadicam rig which enabled me to walk around the dance floor while filming lovely cinematic shots.
This was the perfect wedding day. It was great to be back at Craighouse. Congratulations to Fiona and Stuart. You were a joy to film!
Here’s a few wedding photos taken straight from the wedding video. Enjoy!
