Edinburgh Wedding Photographers – Dalhousie Castle Wedding
Emotions are high on each wedding. The atmosphere is full of love and happiness. As professionals we always try not to get carried away with all the tears and laughter, but I suppose when we allow ourselves to get more involved, the images we produce have a lot more meaning to them.
They tell a more delicate story. A story about not just two people in love, but all the feelings that family and friends have for them, those who shape their journey of life and make it the adventure that it becomes. Together. We cry and laugh at all of our weddings and we hope the way we feel comes across our images every time.
This Dalhousie Castle wedding in Edinburgh was a very special one to our hearts. Photographing family members’ or friends’ weddings are a little more challenging, as we get more absorbed in everything that goes on during the day. Jonny’s cousin, Emma and her fiancee Adam are one of those couples who were comfortable for almost 10 years of being engaged. Emma might have over used the word fiancee, I’m not sure. Something snapped in them and they announced the wedding date last year.
They chose Dalhousie Castle wedding venue as the place that mostly represented both their traditional values and love for Scotland. It felt like time has stopped in the 13th century and I was transported to this truly magnificent fortress by the River Esk. I was stunned. Jonny was a shaking mess. After getting himself together to step into the Bridal Suite little tears came flooding. I knew then, that by the end of the day we will be drained, both physically and emotionally. He stayed with her capturing all the silliness of the three Hogwarts geeks and the nervous chatter and beauty of his cousin, Emma.
I met Adam at the staircase, but lost him immediately, as he was trying to figure out what else needs doing. I then spent some time in what felt like a maze, behind hidden doors and tiny stairwells with labyrinth like corridors, before finally finding him. His nerves needed a calming hug. He was one of the most nervous grooms I’ve ever come across. You would think, after that long time of being engaged, there’s not many surprises that can happen to you. The overwhelming weight of love, hope and faith can affect all of us. After all it’s these three that keep us going forwards.
