Real Life Wedding: The Balmoral Hotel

The Balmoral Hotel is the perfect spot for an Edinburgh city centre wedding. With views like that (and dreamy sunsets) you literally feel you’re on top of  the world. Being high above the iconic skyline as Edinburgh twinkled below felt like a real privilege.

Danielle and James’ wedding was a day of pure celebration and the love between family and friends was so evident throughout. From their walk down the aisle (which felt to them like floating on a cloud – isn’t that the best way to aisle-walk?) to their epic confetti line, these two enjoyed every single minute of their wedding.

Perfect day is really the only description for this magical autumn wedding that fits. It felt like all of the guests were really present in the moment and determined to have a good time. Exactly as it should be.

Danielle and James it was a real treat for us to be your wedding photographers. Thank you for letting us tell your story and for being such geniunely lovely humans.

We’re so excited to share all of your photographs with you…


Alie & Niels xx

25 May 2024

Hopetoun House is magical pretty much most days. But the day of Nic and Oli’s wedding it seemed to have an extra layer of something. Perhaps it was the weather (impeccably behaved for once), or the sweet sound of laughter on the breeze, or just the general vibe of all things extraordinarily perfect…

Real Life Wedding: Dunglass Estate

06 April 2024

Alex and Molly are the kind of people who embrace life and all it throws at them. Including what we can only be described as the windiest wedding I think we’ve ever been at (think winds of 50 mph – enough to take out huge stone planters) And the result was a wedding day that was even more magical that anyone could have imagined.

Real Life Wedding: Drumtochty Castle

03 April 2024

Their spring wedding was beautiful in spite of the rain (think one of the wettest days ever). Actually it was a little more beautiful because of the rain. As family and friends dashed for cover under mutlicloured brollies there were smile, giggles and lot of togetherness. And what could be better than cosying up in Drumtochty Castle as the wood burners crackle?
