Real Life Wedding: The Balmoral Hotel

When you’ve already fallen in love with The Balmoral Hotel, why would you get married anywhere else?

It’s the perfect Edinburgh city centre venue: castle views, nestled between the train station and the old town; and of course Victorian architecture to die for.

For Diane & Chris it was the obvious choice. I mean these two even have their own seats by the bar! Classical and romantic with more than a good ladleful of fun, their wedding was a blast from beginning to end.

Thank you Mr and Mrs Wright for choosing us. Something tells us we’re going to keep in touch!

The Balmoral Hotel

Did you know the Balmoral Hotel was the very first place in Edinburgh that Blue Sky Photography photographed a wedding? True fact. All the way back in the giddy heights of 2003. And we love the hotel as much now as we did then. Truth is we probably love it even more. Because since then we have discovered so many hidden nooks and crannies. Since then we have photographed so many incredible events, from weddings for two, to parties for hundreds. And for each and ever one the Balmoral Hotel (and the fabulous team) delivers on style, substance and something special that you feel from the minute you push those gold revolving doors.

Real Life Wedding: Dundas Castle

14 October 2023

Thinking back to our first meeting with Katie and David (which was also at Dundas Castle) one of the things we loved most about this pair was how much they laughed and smiled together. And it was exactly the same on their wedding day… from walking through their avalanche of confetti to holding tight to each other on the top of a very windy roof of Dundas, these two are for each other. Every step of the way.
