Clare and John's Wedding at the Rowantree, Edinburgh
Clare and John got married on the 31st August in the Rowantree in Edinburgh. The Rowantree is an intimate venue built into the arches of Edinburgh's famous South Bridge. It is a unique place, the type that could only exist in Edinburgh - full of charm and romance, and perfect for a wedding.
Matt and I really enjoy a photography challenge, and this venue certainly put us through our paces, with the ceremony taking place in one of the central cloisters - completely underground with no windows! However, the lighting throughout the Rowantree is really vivid and dramatic, and the stone walls and candles are an excellent backdrop to the celebrations.
For their portrait photographs, we took Clare and John to Victoria Terrace, above the Grassmarket. Victoria Terrace is an iconic location, unique to Edinburgh, and perfect for their portraits. The weather surprised us all with stunning sunshine - a rare occurrence in Scotland at any time, never mind Festival season in Edinburgh!
We returned to the Rowantree where everybody enjoyed a beautiful meal and ceilidh. During the evening buffet break, Clare and John surprised one of their guests, whose birthday was on the same day. Instead of having a wedding cake, they arranged an amazing rainbow birthday cake (complete with candles!) for him. Check out the album to see the cake - it looks delicious!
Congratulations, Clare and John!
