Wedding Photography at the Ghillie DhuKirsty & Trevar

My last wedding of 2017 took me back to one of my favourite venues, the Ghillie Dhu in Edinburgh, for Kirsty & Trevar’s big day. In somewhat of a strange coincidence, my last two weddings of 2017 at The Vu and the Ghillie Dhu, are also the same venues where I shall be shooting my last two weddings of this year, between Christmas and New Year…go figure!

Was great to see a few familiar faces too, as I’d previously shot Kirsty’s sister, Katie’s wedding to Ross a few years earlier, and if that day was anything to go by, I knew it was going to be a good one…and that’s exactly how it panned out :-). December weddings are what they are – you know it’s going to be pretty chilly and dark…I should know as I got married in December myself. But, in many ways, somewhere like the Ghillie Dhu lends itself perfectly to the feel of a winter wedding…just check out that fabulous room!

Being just off Princes Street, I couldn’t let the day pass without having one or two shots dodging traffic on the central reservation, something that I seem to have become synonymous with over the years. My aim is always to try and get a couple of trams passing by on each side but, you know how it is…you wait, and wait, and wait…and in the end just have to settle for buses instead :-). One of these days maybe…

Kirsty & Trevar, 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 (click on any thumbnail to view L A R G E!).

Getting Married & 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 those important 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 2020 & 2021…but I do have a very limited number of 2019 dates still available.

Full day coverage collections start at £1300…but don’t forget my cheeky wee discount where you can save up to £400 :-).

Mike :-).
