Not all Edinburgh wedding venues are created equal.
Not all wedding venues offer jaw dropping rooms, a fascinating history, a super-central setting and skilful, knowledgeable staff.

The Signet Library is situated in the very heart of Edinburgh’s historic Old Town, and with next door neighbour St Giles Cathedral, provides some truly fantastic locations for taking wedding photographs. St Giles Cathedral, lit to dramatic effect at night, can be particularly stunning location for us to capture our couples.

One of my favourite things about photographing weddings in the Signet Library is being able to capture couples on the incredible grand staircase, which takes you to the Upper Library. The Upper Library can accommodate 50 to 220 guests for any type of reception, from a wedding breakfast to evening reception, and it has the most incredible vaulted ceilings. There is also an in-house PA system and wooden dance floor, making this part of the Library perfect for those wedding speeches and, of course, dancing the night away with your family and friends!
