Blue Sky Photography, wedding, family, baby and commercial photography in Edinburgh | Joanne & Jim’s Wedding at Hopetoun House, South Queensferry


Welcome to the Blog

Inspired by our clients and our love of of photography, this is our world of pictures. Pop back as often as you want, or spend a while catching-up with what we’ve been creating. Come and meet Blue Sky…



We love being part of the most amazing day of two people’s lives – what a privilege. From the first time we met these two we knew their wedding was going to be something special… especially after we heard their amazing engagement story.


Jo and Jim’s wedding at Hopetoun House was a fairytale wedding and every detail was planned beautifully. We loved all Jo’s little touches – from gift bags in the hotel to surprises for her guests (and her new husband!) And they both looked pretty stunning too.


Jo and Jim we think you two are a fantastic couple and just brilliant together. Your speeches were all so genuine and there was so much emotion and very few dry eyes in the room – ours included. You clearly love each other and your friends and family to bits. We had lots of fun with you on your wedding day and we have so many favourite moments, from hanging out with the girls in the morning through to beating the retreat at night…


As ever it was great to work with Steve and Stuart from Design Scotland Video. Thanks for being so fab to work with!


Here are some of our highlights for now. Hope you’re having a blast on honeymoon and completely chilling.


Sorry Jim – what was the time again?


Speak soon,


N&A x


P.S. Did the ducks go in the suitcase Jo?





































The ballroom at Hopetoun looked beautiful. Planet Flowers and Heritage Portfolio created magic with the flowers and the food and we loved all Jo’s little details, including the photographs on the mantlepiece of their parents’ weddings.















And towards the end of the night there was a few surprises for guests… and for Jim… what a stunning ending to a fantastic day…

    It’s going on nearly two years now since our wedding but when I look at your gorgeous photograph’s….. It brings everything flooding back and it makes it feel like almost yesterday. You are both wonderful people, who do a wonderful job. You have a canny way of being able to capture the most special moments and important times in people’s life’s…. Without which these times would be lost in the moment.
    I simply cannot thank you enough for giving me a gift that I will treasure forever.
    Love to you both.
    Joanne x
