I’ve seen some fantastic cake toppings and Liz and Ben’s cycling one was truly fabulous. Their cake-maker had a keen eye for detail as even the hair colour and lengths were right, and Ben’s glasses were in place too.

Why not get your cake topping figurines custom made to suit your personalities, or hobbies, or dreams! Go on, create something stunning!

Something a bit different

Something a bit different

Something a bit different, but I had such a fantastic day trip to Inchcolm Island with my daughter Lily and her NZ Grandad, that I wanted to share about it here!

We had the sun and dead calm seas, so it was easy for landlubbers to enjoy. I’ve been wanting to do this trip for years, not only to explore the Firth of Forth more, but especially to see the bridges in their full glory.

We’ll be back to weddings shortly, as it is deep in the heart of wedding season right now, but I couldn’t wait to share these lovely photos of Edinburgh too. Anyone fancy getting married on the Forth Belle?

Sarah and Louis’ wedding at Edinburgh Castle in April. It was a glorious, but very windy day and as you can see from Sarah’s veil we had fun with the photos!
It was an honour to be the wedding photographer for their wedding, especially in such a prestigious location. I just did my best to make sure that the photographs reflected not only the grandeur of the castle, but the personalities of Sarah and Louis.

Blogs on the rise!

What are your opinions on wedding blogs? They seem to be getting ever more popular and ever more in our faces!

It’s no surprise that in the age of the internet and the ubiquitous smartphone that blogs have risen to such prominence, but exactly how much importance do brides (and let’s be honest, it is mainly brides) put in them?

The link below goes through to a BBC site which delves into the phenomenon a little.

I’ve been luck as a wedding photographer in Edinburgh to be featured on the Braw Brides blog recently and is in the previous post.

One of my weddings on Braw Brides Blog

A recent wedding I photographed, with Sarah and Louis at Edinburgh Castle has been picked up by Braw Brides blog. They’ve done a great job of showing a select few of the images from Edinburgh’s most famous location, with a bit of a write-up too.

It was my first time photographing a wedding at Edinburgh Castle and I really enjoyed the locations, views and sense of history that could be put into the photos.

Sarah and Louis were wonderful to work with on the day and they were delighted with their wedding photos.
