Adele and Grant are lovely people and so perfect for each other. It was a pleasure to photograph their Spring Marriott Dalmahoy wedding near Edinburgh. This is a venue I know very well and it is very close to my heart as my husband and I got married there in 2011! Since then I have worked there a few times and each time feels special.
The couple chose a bright blue and yellow colour theme which tied in really well with the décor of the hotel as well as being perfect for Spring. I’m not sure if matching the venue colour scheme was intentional or just a coincidence but it looked great being so coordinated!
Adele got ready with her bridesmaids at Dalmahoy on the morning of the wedding which was very handy as I was able to nip back and forth between her and Grant. It also meant I was able to capture some portrait photos of her in her beautiful wedding dress just before she went down for the ceremony. Their humanist ceremony was touching and gave their guests a lovely insight into their personalities and relationship. After the ceremony I captured some natural shots before launching into the official group photos. Then the three of us hopped onto a golf buggy and whizzed over to the pond for some romantic couple photos! It was great to get some photos with the venue in the distance too. On our way back we found a blossom tree which was still in bloom which made a lovely backdrop. After dinner the party really started and I left everyone dancing the night away and having a great time.
