Sarah & James

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.

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.
