It feels like an enormous privilege to be part of one of the happiest and most significant days in a couple’s lifetime. I love meeting couples at such a happy place in their lives and then being part of planning and documenting their big day. Once the day has been and gone, I love helping them create the album that will become the memories and heirlooms they will carry with them through their life together. 

I loved meeting Jenn and Grant and hearing their story. With a move to the other side of the world on the horizon, the wedding felt like it was a marker in their lives – the end of one chapter, the start of something new and exciting. 
They had chosen to have an intimate wedding with only their closest family and friends present. Prestonfield House Hotel felt like the perfect setting for this – beautiful and grand, yet intimate and cozy. 
I loved the sun spilling into the rooms creating pockets of light and darkness, followed by our outdoor photos, where we narrowly missed a huge shower, but exited into glorious sunshine, bouncing off the wet ground. 

All this was followed by speeches, dinner and more doughnuts than any sane person could eat.
What could possibly be a better, happier way to mark a Life Chapter?

We absolutely love capturing a spring wedding, and when they involve beautiful blossom, sunshine and stunning sunsets what could be more perfect? Samantha and Michael’s wedding day had all of these elements in abundance.  

The couple were married in the magnificent surroundings of Glasgow University Chapel, followed by a reception at Lochgreen House Hotel, in Troon. 

Samantha’s day started at her parents’ house, with hair, make-up, nerves, champagne and lots of laughs. (I love capturing mornings like that!)

Samantha’s pretty hand tied bouquet, and the posies carried by her four bridesmaids, were made up of blush roses, pale pink peonies and cream gerberas.

Meanwhile, Michael and his groomsmen enjoyed a drink at Cottiers before heading to the chapel.

I love this moment of Samantha and her father making their way up the steps to Glasgow University Chapel, a beautiful, traditional landmark in the west end of Glasgow. The venue held a special place for the couple, being in the area where they first met and now live. The chapel has many grand and breathtaking elements to it from the beautiful stained glass windows to the original stone and woodwork pieces. The inward facing pews of the chapel allow all the wedding guests a good view of the ceremony.

Another joy of a spring wedding is blossom! The timing of the wedding perfectly coincided with the blossom trees being in full bloom, providing the most beautiful backdrop for portraits of Samantha.

The second venue of the day was Lochgreen House Hotel,  which is 45 minutes from Glasgow on the west coast. Lochgreen House is a traditional country house which sits in the countryside in the west coast of Scotland. The couple loved the homely but elegant ambience this hotel offers as well as the stunning food and canapés.

From first meeting Mary and Jason over cups of tea and lots of giggles in The Elephant House in Edinburgh, we knew this wedding was going to be A LOT of fun. Set in the stunning Royal College of Physicians, their wedding was absolutely perfect from beginning to end.

In 1997 I got my first “real” job in photography as holiday cover on the picture desk of Scotland on Sunday newspaper. Here I took my first steps into editing in Photoshop and learned about the aesthetic, editorial and graphic decisions behind choosing images to tell a story. These are lessons that have stuck with me and I still use every day in my job. 
The following pictures were taken in the building that is now The Scotsman Hotel, which used to house all  the Scotsman newspapers and magazines. Back then, we never got to use this staircase though (staffers used the back door) so I had to take full advantage of them for Mary’s pre-wedding photographs…

Mary and Jason are both doctors, and the library in Royal College of Physicians holds a special place in their hearts. Being able to get married there felt perfect.

Winter wedding at Lochgreen House Hotel | Victoria & Duncan

We really love a winter wedding, especially if it’s all set within a cosy warm venue, with lots of hints of Christmas, lights, candles and hygge. Plus, it gives us lots of opportunities to play with our Profoto studio lights and speedlights to create lovely portraits. Most of the year we use the 

Victoria and Duncan were such a wonderful couple to photograph, really warm, relaxed and open to our ideas – we had a brilliant time capturing their pre-Christmas wedding. The whole day took place in Lochgreen House Hotel, so guests were able to park their cars, book into their rooms and then just party the day and night away. No snowy or frosty roads to manoeuvre or bus trips from church to hotel, just a full day of wintry wedding fun.

One small challenge was making sure that the bride and groom didn’t see each other on the morning of the wedding, so Victoria camped out in two lovely rooms with her maids, parents and hair/ make-up team. Meanwhile Duncan had the run of the rest of the hotel.

Wedding elopement, Prestonfield House Hotel, Edinburgh

Edinburgh Wedding Elopement

Wedding Elopement, Prestonfield House, Blue Wedding Dress, Edinburgh Wedding Photographer, Copyright:First Light Photography, Scotland

What if the idea of a big, over-the-top wedding day, full of people and planning just isn’t your thing? What if you’d much rather just say your vows in front of the one you love and your best friend? Wedding elopements are becoming increasingly popular, with some couples feeling overwhelmed by all the options, opinions, planning and decisions involved in organising a wedding. 

Freddie and Glenn strongly felt that they only wanted to have four close friends be part of their weddings, so they arranged a civil ceremony in Lothian Chambers in Edinburgh, followed by afternoon tea at Prestonfield House Hotel. 

A year later, they had a lavish wedding blessing party at Dundas Castle (but you’ll have to wait a little before we blog that…)

Gilmerton House Wedding, North Berwick

We absolutely adore photographing weddings at Gilmerton House, and Catriona and Jonathan’s special day there will show you a lot of the reason why. The beautiful building, the stunning interior design, lush garden and friendly staff mean we are always a little giddy when heading to Gilmerton.  
Situated in the heart of East Lothian and close to the beach in North Berwick,  Gilmerton House has quickly become one of our all-time favourite wedding venues. It offers couples exclusive use of the mansion house and extensive landscaped gardens, with a warm and welcoming atmosphere.

Catriona and Jonathan’s day was filled with sunshine,  smiles and the most beautiful, delicate colours throughout.

Winter wedding at Edinburgh Castle

Edinburgh Castle Winter Wedding 

Edinburgh CastleBalmoral HotelWedding PhotographerEdinburgh Wedding PhotographerEdinburgh

For memorable Scottish wedding venues, I struggle to see how you could top Edinburgh Castle!

Yvonne and Jason’s wedding was every kind of wonderful. A completely laid-back couple who never stopped smiling, their happiness and excitement rubbed off on everyone else too. 

The couple started their day at the Balmoral Hotel, at No.1 Princes Street, a landmark in the centre of Edinburgh. Fun fact: their grand clock has been set three minutes fast since 1902 to ensure the people of Edinburgh wouldn’t miss their trains?

After relaxing and getting ready at the hotel with family and friends, the couple headed to Edinburgh Castle for the wedding. One of the  most famous landmarks in Scotland, Edinburgh Castle is quite possibly one of the most magnificent settings you can have for a wedding. There has been a royal castle on the rock since at least the 12th century, and the site was used as a royal residence until 1633.  Today the castle provides a stunning backdrop for weddings, both intimate and grand ceremonies.

Vive the Auld Alliance! Scottish/ French wedding at Lothian Chambers and L’Escargot Blanc, Edinburgh

Léonor & Cameron’s Scottish/ French wedding, Lothian Chambers and L’Escargot Blanc, Edinburgh

Lothian ChambersRoyal MileL'Escargot BleuWedding PhotographerEdinburgh Wedding PhotographerEdinburgh

As a Dane married to a Scot, I love capturing weddings of couples who have met, fallen in love and decided to spend their lives together in spite of (or because of?) their different nationalities. This French/ Scottish wedding has a very special place in my heart – I challenge you to find a lovelier, sweeter or nicer example of the ever-existing Auld Alliance between Scotland and France…

Léonor and Cameron first met and fell in love when they both studied at St Andrews University in Scotland. When they graduated they moved to London to live and work. It was an easy decision for them to return to Cameron’s beautiful hometown of Edinburgh for their wedding at Lothian Chambers on the Royal Mile, in  Edinburgh’s historic Old Town. Their wedding was followed by dinner with their guests at French restaurant L’Escargot Blanc.

The couple decided to have an intimate wedding with only their closest friends and family present – and I was honoured to be there with them to capture this incredibly happy day.

I was delighted to receive this lovely handwritten note from Léonor and Cameron after the wedding:

Dear Ditte, Léonor and I have just passed our 1st Anniversary and we wanted to write and tellyou that your beautiful pictures are still giving us so much joy! We found ourselves watching a slideshow of them the other day and were reminded of just how perfectly they captured the day and how wonderfully professional and friendly you were. Thank you again for being part of our day and for capturing it so perfectly!

Enjoying revisiting the autumn wedding of Jayne and John, which took place at the Royal College of Physicians in Edinburgh. From the Art Deco inspired stationery, to the stunning geometric cake and etched centrepieces, Jayne and John’s wedding was one seriously stylish day. 

The Royal College of Physicians, on Edinburgh’s Queen Street, whilst unassuming from outside appearances, is truly spectacular inside. The space is large enough to provide a real sense of grandeur, yet also offers a nice level of intimacy. The venue can also be used exclusively by the wedding party and guests are able to wander and admire the beautiful spaces within the building.

Jayne began the day getting ready at her parent’s home, with her bridesmaids and a watchful, fluffy cat!

Jayne’s beautiful lace wedding dress was created by Mette at Freja Designer Dressmaking, and the bridesmaids elegant outfits were by Coast.

Jayne’s hand tied bouquet of cream flowers with sprigs of sea holly thistles and eucalyptus, was created for her by Edinburgh based Planet Flowers.

Groom John wore his kilt, a trend which was followed by all of the bridal party. John’s tartan was Ancient Macbeth, a lovely hue of light blues and greys. These colours  were picked up in the men’s button holes which included beautiful sea holly sprigs.

Jayne and John worked closely with their various wedding suppliers to achieve the geometric, Art Deco theme of the day. Details included etching on the vases and a bespoke cake stand to perfectly compliment the gold and cream, Art Deco inspired cake.

Hotel du Vin Glasgow wedding: Antonia & Andrew

Beautiful autumnal Hotel du Vin Glasgow wedding.

Looking back at this stunning wedding we captured at Hotel du Vin, I’ve been yet again blown away by the colourful styling and happy feeling this day had.

Situated in the heart of Glasgow’s West End, but on its own quiet street, Hotel du Vin in Glasgow (formerly known as One Devonshire Gardens) makes the perfect venue for a city centre wedding, yet with a private, leafy setting.

Antonia and Andrew and most of their family and friends had travelled from abroad to celebrate in Andrew’s native Scotland. So to help them style and plan the day, they had hired in the wedding experts from 88 Events.

The fireplace was decorated in lush autumn colours and made a stunning backdrop for the ceremony

While Andrew welcomed guests at the front of the hotel, Antonia and her maids and family were getting ready in the rooms upstairs.

Despite its situation a stone’s throw from Glasgow’s Byres Road, Hotel du Vin sits on its own quiet, leafy side street, so we were able to get some lovely photos of the emerging autumn colours all around.

After dinner, we headed outside for a few images of the twilight skies.

Andrew had a arranged for two incredibly talented Scottish folk musicians to play in the interval between dinner and dancing.

After the wedding, we received this lovely email from Antonia and Andrew:

Hi Ditte,
Just a wee note to say…our wedding album has arrived! And we couldn’t be
happier or more impressed.
We are quite overwhelmed, really – it’s such a beautiful, unique object.
Thank you for being so careful and exacting in putting it together; it
really shows.
We’d like to say again that it’s been an absolute pleasure working with
you, from start to finish. You’ve given us a wonderful collection of images
and memories, and we’ll treasure them. Thank you!

 

Antonia and Andrew, thank you so much for trusting us to cover your day for you the way you wanted, we had so much fun and have loved creating your images and your album for you. Wishing you both a lifetime of happiness and hope our paths will cross again some day.
