This wedding makes me smile every time I think about it.
From our very first meeting, Charlotte and Allan have spoken about their wedding day with contagious excitement and we had been looking forward to the big day almost as much as they had.
And how could we not be excited? Two stunning venues in the centre of Edinburgh, a friendly, laid-back couple and some incredibly talented wedding suppliers all made this day really special.
A special mention to Mette from Freja Designer Dressmaking
, who not only made the beautiful wedding dress, but also did the stunning outfits for the bridesmaids and the mother-of-the-bride.
Charlotte started her day in the Balmoral Hotel on Princes Street. Charlotte’s lovely natural make-up was done by LG Makeup
The wedding service took place in the chapel at Fettes College, one of Edinburgh’s most iconic buildings.
Charlotte is a musician and music teacher, so a lot of thought had gone into the music and hymn choices for the ceremony. The 14-person-strong choir were the best choir I have ever heard at a wedding.
The wedding reception was held at the magnificent Signet Library, where Heritage Portfolio and Flowers by Maxwell had worked their magic.
The Upper Library in the photo below was described by King George IV as “the finest drawing room in Europe” – easy to see why!

Charlotte and Allan, thank you for sharing your wedding with us – it has been fantastic getting to know you and your families.
We wish you a lifetime of love and happiness (and music!) together as husband and wife.
We hope you have enjoyed this little preview and look forward to showing you the rest of the photos when they are done.
Ditte & Chris
