What a day! Before moving to Dunbar last summer we lived in Edinburgh for just over 12 years and yet in all that time I never took the trip out to see Rosslyn Chapel (despite reading the Da Vinci Code years ago and always saying we should go!) and I should have – what a place. Aside from it being completely fascinating and steeped in history, it was also the most beautiful setting for Amber and Ollie’s wedding a couple of Saturdays ago, before they headed off to their reception at Ollie’s parents’ house in Lasswade nearby.

Thanks to Amber’s dad’s company Glasshouse Events, the day was, literally, lit up and decked out with amazing individual features and unique elements – like the old Citroen van as a wine bar, colourful lights everywhere and festoon bulbs adding amazing ambience to the day. Add that to all the fun, laughter and love and you have one awesome wedding! He had a great team with him including Finesee Marquees, Core Productions, Stretch Tent Scotland, Event A Loo and Cairns & Scott.

Here are a few from the day. Huge thanks to Fiona Higgins Photography for second shooting with me.

Harvest Moon Weddings is one of those venues that photographers talk about. And I mean TALK about. It’s stunning scenery, relaxed setting, beach ceremonies, glamping/treehouse accommodation and a team that help at every turn – it’s somewhere I have always wanted to shoot. I was so excited when Lou and Andy got in touch about their day and to now have Harvest Moon on my doorstep since we moved down here last summer is just the best bonus!

These two married on the beach, as they dreamed of doing, surrounded by their lovely family and friend, their two boys and the view. It’s impossible to write about the day, I’m not sure I can do it justice really… They had a festival vibe to the whole day, from the street food stalls for their meal (cooked up by the amazing Jo’s Kitchen, decorated by Verity), garden games, the awesome Big Blu Pizza van and glitter face paints for the evening. Just brilliant.

Lou and Andy – two of the kindest, warmest people you could ever meet. Family is everything. It was a complete joy to hang out with them all day; their two gorgeous boys running around with their cousins and friends. The most amazing of weddings.

Oh Colstoun. Wow. I knew I’d love it here! Sus and Chris had the most incredible day for their wedding a couple of weeks ago. Aside from being two of the most fun, happy, in love, loveliest people ever, they know how to throw a wedding. Colstoun, near Haddington, isn’t that far from me, so it was lovely to potter up from Dunbar in the morning and arrive to discover this gem of a venue already full of laughter. Loved it.

Here’s a quick few from their day.
