Photographing Leanne & Steve’s wedding was a huge joy for us. We’ve known Leanne for a few years now as we photographed the weddings of her two sisters, Valerie (at Hopetoun House) and Fiona (at Mansfield Traquair) where she was bridesmaid to both. This time the roles were reversed.

Jackie was with the girls whilst they prepared. Capturing the fun, anticipation, the emotions and the little details makes this one of Jackie’s favourite parts of a wedding day.

Alan joined Steve, his best men Ben & Jerry (who were very cool!) and ushers for their preparations and a sip of champagne. Ben demonstrated a unique method of opening the champagne…..Wedding Photographers Scotland

St. Mary’s Star of the Sea in Leith is a hidden gem. A beautiful, bright church with a very warm welcome.




And yes, the sun did shine on Leith…..

The Signet Library’s Upper and Lower Libraries looked spectacular. Event Design and catering were by the team at Heritage Portfolio. Floral loveliness was supplied by Planet Flowers. Planet blogged more details of Leanne & Steve’s day here.






Whilst Leanne & Steve and their guests enjoyed coffee & cake in the Lower Library, the Upper Library was transformed for their evening celebrations.

The final words go to Leanne herself:

“We couldn’t believe how smoothly our Wedding Day went!  Every detail came together so perfectly and this was in no doubt thanks to the help of Jackie and Alan. Not only did they capture some wonderful moments throughout the day, Jackie also kept the bridal party relaxed and calm as we were getting ready in the morning.  We were so grateful for the help, advice and most of all the personal support they gave us in the lead up to the big day.” Leanne
