On Friday 12 September, Neill and Susan were married at the beautiful venue Orocco Pier in South Queensferry, Edinburgh. It was a day filled with fun unique ideas. During our first meeting with them they told us about the completely unintentional butterfly theme which had occured, they both have butterfly tattoos and most of their purchases for the wedding turned into butterfly related items. We loved the sound of their small intimate wedding of 36 guests, and the chilled out laid back manner they wanted the day to have. We got on great and the date was booked. Just as we were wrapping up the meeting Neill pipes up with "Oh, there will be fireworks at night, we'd love photos, can you do that?". Fireworks are notoriously difficult to photograph and there is a certain skill involved. I turn to Bryan and say "That's one for you", he replies "Give them their deposit back!" (He wasn't joking). However, we all laughed it off and agreed to keep in touch to discuss everything and anything wedding. We met up again 3 weeks before the wedding to confirm the smaller details and got to know Susan and Neill a bit more and some definite plans were put in place for the photographs.
A very special touch was that the weekend of their wedding was also the 50th Anniversary of the Forth Road Bridge. Neill had managed to contact the authorities and arrange transport up onto the footpath for them to place a love lock on the bridge. It turns out they were the very first bride and groom to ever do this, and it was an honour to photograph it for them.
As usual, we are thankful that you took some time out of your day to read our blog. We hope you enjoyed looking at the photographs and a bit of Susan and Neill's story. Come back soon!
