The Caves Wedding : Katie & John

Unusually, April this year was fairly quiet for me, with just the one wedding to shoot…although I did sneak away for a cheeky week in Cyprus too…hard to shoot weddings when you’re not even in the country I guess LOL.

Katie & John’s big day took place at The Caves in the heart of Edinburgh. Now, for anyone that’s been to The Caves before, you’ll know what it’s like. For those that haven’t well, let’s say it’s pretty unique, set as it is, unsurprisingly, amongst the underground caves that are a plenty in this part of town. And it’s pretty dark too, which does create a fair challenge when shooting – you need at least some flash to light the guys up…but go with too much and you’ll end up with it way too bright and losing the ambience…it’s a balancing act for sure! I was certainly glad I’d had quite a few weddings under my belt before the first time I ever went there.

Of course, apart from the uniqueness of the venue itself, being where it is also gives you the chance to hop up to the Royal Mile for a few shots…always one of my favourite places to shoot with the old world charm of the cobbled streets and also the many (slightly eerie) lanes that run of the main drag…always great for a dramatic shot or two :-).

Katie & John, thank you very much for choosing me to shoot your fabulous day. Here’s a few of my favourite shots which I hope you all like…PS – best viewed on a desktop.

Please all feel free to leave a comment at the bottom of the page, as I love to know what you think :-).


Looking for some “Ninja Style” Wedding Photography?

I love shooting weddings and, for the most part, I adopt a “ninja style” low key approach to the day! Most couples tell me they didn’t even notice me for the majority of the day and that suits me…it is your wedding day after all, not a photo-shoot! But, I will always make time for a small number of family group shots and also, a relaxed bride & groom shoot and here, it’s my aim to provide you with some truly amazing pictures…not just your standard stuff :-). To know more about my wedding day  approach to how I shoot weddings, just click here.

I’m mainly taking bookings now for 2021…but I do have a limited number of 2020 dates still available too.

Full day coverage collections start at £1500…but don’t forget my cheeky wee discount where you can save up to £500 :-).

Mike :-).
