10/11/12 – An unforgettable date. It was the beautiful winter wedding of Kirsty and Grant at the magnificent Signet Library, in the heart of Edinburgh’s old town. It was a privilege to be invited to photograph their wedding, as Kirsty is the daughter of the famous Pipe Major Iain Grant. We have photographed Iain piping on many occasions – today he would be playing a different role as the proud Father of the Bride.
After the ceremony the guests travelled to the reception on the Royal Mile by vintage red bus. Kirsty & Grant had added many personal details to their reception, such as the collection of family wedding photographs and a framed picture from their pre-wedding photo shoot for all the guests to sign. Their wedding invitations also incorporated pictures from their pre-wedding shoot.
Kirsty and Grant chose a dramatic long table setting in the Upper Library. And a unique feature we’ve never seen before was a silhouette artist, who cut out guest’s portraits.
After seeing their album Kirsty said:
“Alan and Jackie are just fantastic, it’s as simple as that! From the moment we picked up the phone to enquire about them doing our photography, to them delivering our wedding album after our honeymoon, they went above and beyond to help make our day special. Their advice was second to none, while they also worked with us to ensure they captured the pictures we really wanted. Not only did we find ourselves two fantastic photographers, but now also have two new friends! Their personal approach to sharing our special date ensured we felt relaxed and the proof is in the pudding; we’ll cherish the moments they captured forever.” Kirsty xx
