Ghillie Dhu Wedding Photography
Ignazio and Mary chose Ghillie Dhu Wedding and I was honoured to be their wedding photographer. Going back to this atmospheric and unique venue to photograph my couple’s special day is always a pleasure. It wasn’t any different this time.
It was a sunny Sunday afternoon. Surrounded by their friends and family from the UK and Italy, they said ‘Yes’ to each other in the heart of Edinburgh. Mary came all the way from the breath-taking Orkney and Ignazio’s roots are in the sunny Italy. They met, fell in love and tied the knot in the beautiful capital of Scotland.
The ceremony, with two beautiful readings from the couple’s guests, was very emotional. Afterwards, instead of confetti, the guests were tossing rice at the newlyweds (which Ignazio ate a half of) as a sign of prosperity and good fortune. The day was glorious and we decided onto taking a walk to Princes Street Gardens in the evening. How lucky we were to get there on the day of the magnificent Ross Fountain being officially re-opened. It is now, beautifully renovated, shinning proudly at the feet of Edinburgh Castle.
They didn’t stop laughing and making jokes throughout the day. One of my Instagram followers @ginasabatellaphoto commented: “Now, that’s a couple who will have laughter throughout their marriage, beautiful”. I can’t agree more! The gorgeous Mary and Ignazio!
