An Edinburgh destination wedding

Scotland’s capital city Edinburgh is one of the most iconic in Europe and an Edinburgh Destination Wedding is the ultimate way to incorporate this wonderful city into your wedding day. Spectacular architecture coupled with the unique weatherscapes often captured in photo shoots in Edinburgh make it highly desirable as a destination wedding city among the locals as well as wedding parties flying in from abroad.

Religious, humanist and civil marriage ceremonies are all possible in Edinburgh and your wedding planner will be able to advise you on all of the legal requirements for obtaining a marriage license in Scotland. It is also possible to enlist the services of a planner in one of the many local hotels, castles and even golf courses that provide an Edinburgh destination wedding if you’d prefer more control over the event.

One of the most popular places for civil services is Edinburgh’s Lothian Chambers Registry Office located just off High Street “The Royal Mile” and close to Waverley Station. It combines spectacular architecture with a beautiful, unrushed ceremony allowing you and your guests to enjoy the solemnity, the intimacy and the sheer joy of the moment.

Another great Edinburgh Destination Wedding location is the renovated Glasshouse Hotel on Greenside Row in the heart of the city. The hotel is hidden behind the facade of what was the Lady of Glenorchy’s Free Church, opened in 1846. As the name implies, the hotel has a number of glass rooms where public and private events can be held, offering wonderful views of the surrounding city while your fantastic wedding day unfolds before you.

This note wouldn’t be complete without a word on wedding photography. There seems almost no point in having a destination wedding if you haven’t planned to include a local Master photographer who knows the location and can faithfully record every detail in the style you request. The city of Edinburgh provides unrivaled architectural and landscape situations that can be used as backgrounds for traditional wedding shots or foregrounds and counters to the wedding couple when viewed in the epic style. Continually changing natural light and cloud patterns mean no two shots are ever the same at the same location. You will never regret hiring a great local photographer who’s on top of his game and we like to think our own Tomasz Adameczek is among the best in Scotland. Get in touch today and we’ll be delighted to help you plan the perfect Edinburgh Destination Wedding and make sure the photography is just as perfect.
