Blánaid & Rory


Living and running a photography studio in the busy city that is Edinburgh, I sometimes forget that it’s a city that changes peoples lives.

People arrive as individuals and leave as husband and wife and as wedding photographers, we’re honoured to to be a small part of this journey.

Edinburgh means lots to Blánaid and Rory – it’s not only where they were engaged but also married…

The memories that will long stay with me from your wedding: the music that filled the day (from singing Whitney in your suite at the Balmoral to the oh so chic music by Spectrum); your wonderful parents with nearly 90 years of marriage between them (that deserves respect!) and the warmth of you all.

Blánaid and Rory thank you for allowing me to be part of your story.

Here’s to your city of Edinburgh; to you as you begin this new journey together and to many more return visits as husband and wife back in the years ahead.

Big Blue Sky love,

Niels (and Alie) x

Real Life Wedding: The Balmoral Hotel, Edinburgh

Could you plan a secret wedding in Edinburgh just a few days before Christmas? Would you be able to keep it from your friends and family? Not sure I’d be able to stop from spilling the beans…quite how Kate and Ian managed at to keep their secret Christmas wedding at The Balmoral Hotel up their sleeve I have no idea. Massive kudos to you.

Real Life Wedding: Mansfield Traquair


01 December 2023

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. 

Real Life Wedding: Barnbougle Castle


24 November 2023

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.
