Real Life Wedding: The Intercontinental George Hotel

You know you’ve arrived in Edinburgh when you step foot through the Edinburgh Intercontinental Hotel (otherwise known as the George) For Sarah and James this was the perfect venue for their wedding. We were warned that their guests knew how to party and they absolutely did. Just look at that packed dance floor.

There were so many highlights: from their ceremony with a quaich filled with Mojitos (who says you have to have whisky?), a magical and extensive confetti line, exploring the gardens on Queen street and of course the dancing.

Special mention also has to go to the weather (yes it is always that warm in Scotland in September ????).

The three words that come to mind when Sarah and James think of their wedding day are euphoric, real and bubbly. To be honest we think those words could apply to this pair themselves… spend any time with them and you’ll see what we mean.

Sarah and James we loved all the love and planning you put into your wedding day. You two are a fantastic team and we love your enthusiastic, down-to-earth approach to life. Something tells us your journey is going to be a fun one.

Here’s a taster. Looking forward to catching-up soon.

George Hotel Weddings

We challenge you to get more Edinburgh City Centre than the Intercontinental George Hotel (or simply the George as those in the know call it). Your guests will love the vibe. From the minute you walk through reception (think classic pillars and bespoke panelling) you’ll feel as though you’ve arrived. It’s the sort of hotel that is timelessness with a capital ‘T’, allowing history, luxury, and modernity to coexist in perfect harmony.

Ww love the ballroom, known as the Kings Hall, with its incredible cloud light in the centre – perfect for dancing underneath. And if you get the chance you need to check out the wrap around views from the roof terrace. You will not be disappointed.

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?

Real Life Wedding: Signet Library

23 March 2024

As Joe and Elias greeted us (with bear hugs rather than hand shakes) we knew they were our kind of people. The kind of people who make life about the people around them rather than the stuff they have; the kind of people who appreciate the little things; the kind of people who value love. Yup we’d hang out with these two any day of the week.
