One of the most mysterious and atmospheric venues – Ghillie Dhu wedding photography
Ignazio and Mary decided to go for a Ghillie Dhu Wedding 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. Centrally based and proudly overlooking the historic centre of Edinburgh weddings at the Gillie Dhu tick all the boxes. Having Princes Street Gardens on the doorstep and the dramatic backdrop of Edinburgh Castle, getting married here will provide you with more options that you can think of.
An Orkney girl and an Italian boy
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.
Shower mi with rice
The ceremony, with two beautiful readings from the couple’s guests, was very emotional. Straight after the ceremony we went outside for the confetti shot and some group photographs. Well in this case, instead of confetti, the guests tossed rice at the newlyweds (which Ignazio ate a half of). Throwing rice at the bride and groom was to wish them luck, prosperity and good fortune. The day was glorious and we decided to take 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.
One happy day!
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!
