Tyler & Stephen’s Wedding in Greyfriars Kirk

October 2, 2017

After a short immediate family shoot, Tyler and Steven followed me for some photos around the city centre, until they went to get marriet at Augustine United Church, continued by their reception in Greyfriars Kirk, just a stonethrow away.

We started out with a family session behind St Gile’s Cathedral, which is one of my favourite spots for groups in a city centre wedding. It’s reasonably quiet, and reflects some of the great stonework and architechture Edinburgh has to offer.

What I loved most about this day, was the immense support and love Steven and Tyler’s family had for them! So many people came all the way from USA to celebrate with them (Tyler is from Colorado), I’m talking over 50 friends and family, both old and young. A couple who unfortunately couldn’t show up, Tyler’s grandparents, were watching the whole day through FaceTime (yay, 2017) – see if you can spot them in the photo series below! Also, as I was only in it for a half day (4 hours) this day, I still made it through speeches; it was so worth it, as Tyler’s granfather had recorded a speech that left no dry eye in the entire congregation!

I’m so grateful I could share in Tyler and Steven’s big day. So full of love and happy faces – one of the best things a photographer with a love for candid photos can experience.

Vendors responsible for making this day extra special, were Tyler’s tailor Stewart Highland, making his kilt in a tartan from his family clan. They got married in Augustine United Church, reception in Greyfriars Kirk, and music provided by Sporrandipity. Lovely buttonholes from Flower Bank.
