Restoration Yard Dalkeith Park
Engagement session in the green heart of Edinburgh
It was a beautiful September morning, a bit less than one year before their wedding. Zoe and Euan chose Holyrood Park with the dramatic views of Arthur’s Seat at one side and the old town of Edinburgh at the other. The warm, early autumn sun was pleasant, just ideal for our walk, chat and shoot. They weren’t camera shy, perfectly happy with themselves, confident and very much in love! We started at the pond and walk up toward St Anthony’s Chapel. It was still quiet, we managed to get there just before everyone else.
We had a great chat about Zoe and Euan’s wedding day at the Restoration Yard Dalkeith Park. Making plans of where to take them for our ‘formal photographs’ during the drinks reception, getting to know each other, listening to ‘their story’ and just making some nice memories filled our engagement session time quickly.
Post-Covid wedding at the Restoration Yard Dalkeith Park
It’s been one year since Zoe and Euan’s wedding at the end of May 2021. One of my first post-lockdown weddings. Nobody knew what was happening, but everyone enjoyed the moment after a year in isolation. It was a beautiful day, but also a day filled with those weird feelings: are we ok to come close to other people, are we ok to congratulate them, shake hands, give them a hug, kiss… Zoe, Euan and their guests took the most of this unforgettable day. And it all happened at the most beautiful scenery: the unique 18th century renovated stables – Restoration Yard in Dalkeith Country Park, just outside of Edinburgh.
Where history meets nature
After so many years of being together, travelling the world together, surviving two lockdowns together, finally buying their first house together and moving in just two days before the wedding, they finally got married! Surrounded by the most tranquil scenery, under the perfectly beautiful blue skies, listening to the slow river nearby and in the presence of just a very intimate group of their loved ones those two best friends became husband and wife. It was an honour and immense pleasure to be there for them.
A few weeks after the wedding at the Restoration Yard, Zoe and Euan received their online gallery. They were invited to choose their favourites for their album and came back to me with the kindest words and a beautiful ‘Thank you’ card:
“Aah thank you so much for these we absolutely love them! Adore your style and so many happy/smiley pictures with lots of laughs – so thank you again for capturing our special day so beautifully! (…)They are beautiful beyond expression
…thank you very much!
Zoe & Euan
