From the moment I met Amanda & Steven, I knew this wedding was going to be a day filled with fun, laughter, and love.
Arriving at the house on the big day I was greeted by the Mother of the Bride in a panicked state due to a “misplaced” bank card (later found not to be “misplaced” but in a “safe place”). Once everyone saw the funny side of the potential disaster normality resumed (as normal as you can get on a wedding day!) and the preparation began.
The sound of prosecco corks popping filled the air, whilst the bridal party had their make-up applied and talk turned to the joyful memories of past family weddings.
This continued until it was time to get dressed and the big reveal of Amanda’s stunning dress to her Dad. The look on his face when his daughter walked in was incredibly special and an emotional moment to be treasured.
It was a beautiful sunny day at Norton House with an autumnal warmth to the air. Whilst Amanda made her way across Edinburgh, Steven was nervously awaiting her arrival.
As the doors opened to the gorgeous ceremony room and the bridal party entered, looks of joy and emotion across their faces the happy couple were reunited at the top of the aisle, ready to bring together their two families.
They had a wonderfully personal ceremony filled with humour, lovely sentiment, and wildlife! A graceful Barn Owl wowed the guests with her silent flight along the aisle, delivering the rings to the Best Man. The ceremony was brought to a close with a traditional hand fasting featuring a special twist! Normally two ties are used to join families but by including Amanda’s lovely son, an additional tie was added to the mix, fully binding their families together. There wasn’t a dry eye in the house when Amanda and Steven sealed their marriage with a kiss.
As the guests enjoyed the sunshine in the grounds, I spent time with the newly-weds and their families to record the special day. Mixing it up with formal shots and a few pictures with a difference – all of which perfectly captured the spirit of the day.
