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…

#BigBlueSkyLove,

Alie & Niels xx

Cassie and Tom’s Christmas wedding at Mansfield Traquair was a festive celebration of love, laughter and one or two surprises 😉 We knew this was going to be the most epic of weddings, but still we were both blown away by the energy of these two. This is a couple who live and love 100mph and everyone around them adores them.

Barnbougle Castle in autumn literally glows from the inside out. So it was the perfect location for Babette and Lawrie’s wonderful thanksgiving inspired wedding.  This pair met 59 months ago, yet fit together so well you can’t imagine them not being a couple.
