Ghillie Dhu is a unique, atmospheric and full of character venue. Located in the heart of Edinburgh, close to the secluded end of the street gardens and the picturesque and vibrant Princes Gardens, it makes just a perfect wedding venue.
Steph and Robbie started to look for an Edinburgh wedding photographer about a year before their big date. When the couple told me they had chosen Ghillie Dhu, I couldn’t congratulate them more. Weddings at this unique venue are amazingly well organised, run smoothly with the most professional Kirsty Bernard (one of the Wedding Planners at Ghillie Dhu), looking after the couple, guests and everything else.
The wedding day started with the usual bridal preps at the bride’s house. When I arrived, the bridesmaids were getting ready, chatting excitedly about what’s about to happen. The bride was nearly ready and we started to take some photos of her finishing touches, getting the dress on, fixing her jewellery. As a natural and candid wedding photographer, I obviously took lots of candid photos of what was happening, flowers, dress and all other important wedding details.
