There is nothing I love more as Edinburgh wedding photographer than photographing city elopements!
They are always super relaxed and low-key and they let the newlyweds to fully focus on each other. Which is incredibly important when getting married!
Small weddings relieve the stress and pressure of the wedding day to be absolutely perfect in every detail. And there is certainly no better or more romantic place for a city elopement than Edinburgh in Scotland!
Rachel and Ewan are originally from Dundee and chose to elope in Edinburgh.
They decided the Scottish capital would be the most perfect place to say ‘I do’. And they made the decision to get married at Edinburgh City Chambers on Royal Mile accompanied by two witnesses only.
Edinburgh City Chambers are located in the heart of Edinburgh’s historic Old Town and provide the most perfect backdrop for Edinburgh wedding photos.
The moment you step out of the Edinburgh City Chambers you will find yourself in the enchanting, beautiful surroundings of medieval architecture.
After Rachael and Ewan’s Edinburgh city elopement, we decided to wander around Old Town and take photos in the most beautiful spots around the Scottish capital. So we wandered around Royal Mile, the Writer’s Museum, the Grassmarket and the Vennel. Thereafter, we called and Uber and headed off to Dean Village.
Dean Village elopement photos
Dean Village is a truly enchanting place. It looks like a village from the previous century and provides the most magical backdrop for elopement photos in Edinburgh. I have taken engagement and wedding photos in Dean Village tens of times and I could truly never get tired of it.
So myself and the newlyweds spent an hour wandering around Dean Village itself and St. Bernard’s Well, admiring the beautiful landscapes of the area.
All the clients I took to Dean Village for either couple, engagement or wedding photos absolutely loved it!
