It was a very windy day. When you plan your wedding, you always worry about the weather. Especially when you’re located in Edinburgh. Susan and Ramsay were lucky. It was a windy, but lovely day. Stunning Eskmills Venue wedding.
I met Susan and Ramsay around a year before their wedding. At that time I was photographing their friends’ wedding. We started to chat and exchanged contact details. They were in touch soon after and quickly booked their day with me too.
The wedding day started at Adniston Manor House. I arrived a few moments before the agreed time to have some time to set up and have a good look around the house. Susan was getting ready. Her make up was being done, but she looked stunning already. Surrounded by her make up and hairdressing crew and two beautiful braidsmaids, she was just glowing.
The dress was there too… Pure, confident, proud… Waiting for its own moment. I love the morning rush, excitement, tears of joy and happiness….
After about 45 minutes of photographing the bridal preps, I had to leave for the main venue to see the groom. When I arrived at Eskmills Venue most of the wedding guests was already. I found the groom and his best man and took them outside for a few pre-ceremony shots.
All was set. The guests were seated, as they should be. The groom was nervous, as he should be. The music man, fiddling with the machine, seemed to be confident with the musical choice. And then She arrived. Out of the sight of the excited wedding guests and the eager to see Her Groom. She looked like a dream. I took a few photos of the arriving bride, her bridesmaids and the bride with her son and run back to the other side of the venue, where the impatient groom was waiting.
As I mentioned, it was a windy but mild day. The couple decided to have their ceremony outside. Ramsay couldn’t hide his emotions.
The bride arrived, the ceremony started. There were laughs, tears, moments of silence and joy. They got married. Everybody cheered and clapped when they finally kissed. The rest history. You can see some of it from the pics below. We wish Susan and Ramsay the brightest possible future. I hope it’s always sunny and mild, like on your wedding day. And if there is a bit windy, I’m sure you’ll be able to walk through it together…
‘I still get butterflies even though I’ve seen you a hundred times’…
