Emily & Andrew’s Wedding, Dundas Castle, South Queensferry

Sometimes you just know a wedding is going to be special… even though you’ve never actually met the couple. We’d spoken to Andrew over email and on the phone and he sounded so genuine and we loved that photography was so important to him… he told us how fantastic his bride to be Emily was…And then we met her and knew exactly what Andrew meant.


These two are such a lovely couple and Dundas Castle was the perfect place for their Scottish-American union. It looked so beautiful and Planet Flowers‘ creations looked truly incredible.


Emily and Andrew thank you so much for letting us be a part of your wedding. We had a ball (as we knew we would) with you and with your friends and family. We have so many favourite moments and we both just smile as we think of your wedding. Here’s some of our highlights…

















You blog stalkers will know that Niels has a real thing for ring shots… we love this one, especially as it was taken on the hood of a vintage camera (which we thought Andrew would appreciate)…







Your ceremony was filled with so much genuine emotion and we really loved your Edward Monkton reading (so much so we had to capture it):


“The fierce Dinosaur was trapped inside his cage of ice. Although it was cold he was happy in there. It was, after all, his cage.
Then along came the Lovely Other Dinosaur.? The Lovely Other Dinosaur melted the Dinosaur’s cage with kind words and loving thoughts.
I like this Dinosaur thought the Lovely Other Dinosaur.? Although he is fierce he is also tender and he is funny.? He is also quite clever though I will not tell him this for now.
I like this Lovely Other Dinosaur, thought the Dinosaur. She is beautiful and she is different and she smells so nice.? She is also a free spirit which is a quality I much admire in a dinosaur.
But he can be so distant and so peculiar at times, thought the Lovely Other Dinosaur. ?He is also overly fond of things.? Are all Dinosaurs so overly fond of things?
But her mind skips from here to there so quickly thought the Dinosaur. She is also uncommonly keen on shopping.? Are all Lovely Other Dinosaurs so uncommonly keen on shopping?
I will forgive his peculiarity and his concern for things, thought the Lovely Other Dinosaur. For they are part of what makes him a richly charactered individual.
I will forgive her skipping mind and her fondness for shopping, thought the Dinosaur. For she fills our life with beautiful thoughts and wonderful surprises. Besides, I am not unkeen on shopping either.
Now the Dinosaur and the Lovely Other Dinosaur are old.? Look at them.? Together they stand on the hill telling each other stories and feeling the warmth of the sun on their backs.
And that, my friends, is how it is with love. ?Let us all be Dinosaurs and Lovely Other Dinosaurs together.? For the sun is warm.? And the world is a beautiful place.”
