If you ever get to know me you’ll know I’m really honest and one thing I must confess is this spring and summer I have been really slow providing wedding contracts to people. I’ve also been slow invoicing people but that’s a whole different story, but thankfully 99% of people I’ve worked with have been cool with this.
One of the most patient people must be Rachel from this wedding at City Chambers Edinburgh followed by a reception at Hotel Du Vin and I really must thank Rachel as both her, her husband and her wedding party were absolutely lovely and a real joy to work with.
Rachel hired me for several hours starting with a few mingling and final preparation shots at Hotel Du Vin (great venue!), a wedding at City Chambers, a few group shots outside City Chambers and a few couples photos in the surrounding venue, then back to Hotel Du Vin for a drinks reception and a meal (which I didn’t stay for as I was booked up until their drinks reception.
I’m really liking City Chambers as a venue now, the staff are always really nice and of course it’s completely different to Leith Registrars Office, South Queensferry Registrars Office (which is almost a different town) and very different to the old Lothian Chambers but I really like it. City Chambers Registrars Office room only caters for around 35 people and I really like photographing small weddings. Big weddings are great but they’re a lot of work for brides and grooms so a smaller, more intimate wedding of especially around 15-20 people is great.
One funny thing about photographing weddings at City Chambers is we don’t seem to go much further than City Chambers and St Giles Cathedral for photos. Back when I was photographing weddings at Lothian Chambers we would go all over the place; Johnston Terrace, Victoria Terrace, Writers Museum, Assembly Hall on the Mound, Ramsay Gardens, all over the place, but any wedding that takes place in this area is really good fun.
I’ve got loads of new weddings coming up soon so keep checking back for more.
