Grassmarket Community Project Wedding

On the 21st September I photographed a wedding that should have happened exactly a year ago. David and David booked me to photograph their wedding at the Grassmarket Community Project but just a couple weeks before their original date one of them was involved in a really serious road accident.

David (with the cheque suit) was out walking his dog when it got startled and ran into the road. David ran after his dog and was hit by a vehicle at high speed and was left with really awful injuries. I found out through one of the ushers what happened but within a few months the wedding was re-arranged for exactly a year later and it was a really great wedding.

The Grassmarket Community Project is one of those venues you drive and walk past tonnes of times but you’re not really aware of what it is. The Grassmarket Community Project caters for “dis-engaged” people who need help re-engaging with society. Through social integration exercises, which include cooking classes as well as art, music and textiles projects. It’s a really great place and they also have a really pleasant cafe which is always packed out with tourists.

Ironically David who nearly died a year before sprained his ankle just before his wedding (of course I made some jokes with him about this) so moving around was a wee bit difficult but we did a short taxi drive around the city centre after the ceremony where we got some iconic photo spots in.

David and David also hired the Edinburgh Gay Man’s Chorus for the ceremony who were absolutely brilliant.

Forget about any financial implications of their wedding not happening, I was absolutely delighted David and David were finally able to make it to their wedding and they were an absolute delight to work with.
