Cheryl and Michael’s Edinburgh George Hotel wedding took place at the end of May last year and it was a beautiful bright sunny day. I started off at the stunning Waldorf Astoria Edinburgh which was formerly known as the Caledonian Hotel. Cheryl was getting ready there with her bridesmaids. They made sure they were ready early so that we could make use of the dramatic grand staircase before moving to the George Hotel for their ceremony. Meanwhile my assistant Jim Davies Photography was at the George taking photos of the boys. Normally I photograph weddings on my own but Cheryl and Michael were keen for more coverage of the boys. Jim did a great job and his photos blended seamlessly with mine.

Cheryl arrived at the George Hotel looking stunning in a vintage car with it’s roof down. Quite a crowd of passers by gathered around to see her. The ceremony was lovely and personal with lots of laughs, both Cheryl and Michael looked very much in love. As it was such a nice day we were able to go with the immediate bridal party to Queen Street Gardens for the group and romantic couple photos. The great thing about Queen Street Gardens is that it’s private and you need a key to get in so it’s always quiet and well kept. There are lots of lovely places for photos there and the couple were happy to follow our lead and stop off at the various locations on the way back to their car. Then it was back to the George Hotel to capture some of the stylish reception, emotional moments during the speeches and first dance. I absolutely love the focal point of the impressive chandelier in the room, it really has the wow factor. After the first dance the party really got started and the dance floor was bustling with guests showing off their best moves!
