I try to update my blog every 5-7 days but as always I’ve been desperately busy over the last couple of months with photography jobs so sadly my blog has had to take a back step while I try to crack on with work. I’m still plugging through work but one wedding which I’ve just finished editing is this National Museum of Scotland Wedding located on Chambers Street in Edinburgh.
The National Museum of Scotland is one of my favourite venues in Edinburgh to visit. Not only is it an absolutely stunning looking building inside but it’s got great facilities and access for children and whenever I’m shooting a wedding in town or in need of taking our daughter out then we will very often take her here.
So at the beginning of July Emily and Elliot booked me to photograph their wedding at the museum. I’ve been really keen on taking some professional photos inside the museum and got the perfect opportunity as the museum was closed off to regular visitors while we got to use the main hall for photos.
It was also the first time I had visited the tower restaurant. As you’ll know if you closely follow this blog my wife works at the Witchery by the Castle which is part of the same group as the Tower Restaurant and also Prestonfield House Hotel. While I didn’t get a chance to try any of the savoury food at the restaurant I did try some wedding cake which was thoroughly delicious.
Emily and Elliot were absolutely great to work with on the day. The whole wedding had a really comfortable relaxed feel and the wedding party were really friendly and nice to deal with. I must also say the organisation at the museum was absolutely superb. The staff at the museum kept everything running smoothly. Even though I was only booked for four hours the whole event was an absolute pleasure and I really can’t wait to photograph another event at the National Museum of Scotland.
So what else is going on now? Work, work and work. I’ve still got several weddings this month, 8 weddings in December, a tonne of editing to plug through. I’m still doing regular commercial work as well but I’m nearly on top of everything. Next I’ll be sharing a wedding that I captured recently at Dalhousie Castle, another truly stunning venue with an equally lovely couple.
