Real Life Wedding: Emma + Oli's Winter Castle Wedding
This Edinburgh wedding was all sorts of wintry wonderfulness. Dundas Castle provided the backdrop of dramatic stateliness for London based Emma + Oli who celebrated their marriage amidst falling leaves and frost covered grounds. It was a perfect late November day: there was frost on the ground, crisp, clean air + brilliant blue skies. It was utterly delightful. We were also gifted incredible sunset afternoon light + stole away to the historic Keep to grab some relaxed, candid photographs.
The couple emanated style in the most tasteful of ways. Emma + Oli's attention to detail filtered through the day in a variety of ways. Emma wore a stunning long sleeved laced dress by Pronovias Atilier. Oli wore his own morning suit before changing into a velvet dinner jacket and trousers handed down from his father before the evening reception. They also paid homage to Oli's tartan throughout the day on cake, around the flower posie, on napkins as well as on their dinner tables.
Following on from dinner and speeches, the dance floor was filled from the opening chord following the first dance. 6 piece band Soul Inferno blasted out feet stomping tunes into the small hours of the morning.
