Christina & Chris’ Wedding, Hopetoun House, South Queensferry



Mr and Mrs Chris Porter… just typing that makes us grin from ear-to-ear.

 

Being a part of your wedding celebrations has been a total joy from the first time we met you. We loved how you created your day and how much thought you put into it all… and how much trust you placed in us. Being a wedding photographer is an incredible privilege, but even more so, being involved intimately in two families lives is such a special thing. Thank you for letting us be a part of your day.

 

You had so many personal touches throughout it – from your lush wedding cake made by your friend Liggy’s Cakes through to your pals in the rocking band Kilter – the ballroom was seriously jumping…

 

Most of all thank you for being so ace to be with – it felt as though we were hanging out with friends from beginning to end.

 

We had the added bonus of having the top team of Jennifer at Hopetoun House and the boys from Cherry Tree Films on board.

 

We’ve struggled to create ‘highlights’ only as there were so many, but here’s a taste for now…

 

 

Megan, a friend of Christina’s, created a beautiful illustration of her dress for her. So personal and special. Check out her bridal illustrations website for more of her work.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And then Niels caught up with Chris and the boys at Hopetoun…

 

 

 

 

 

It was so exciting to see how all the details came together. Christina trusted Planet Flowers 110% to ‘do their thing’ and what an awesome job they did.

 

 

Emma you were a star!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The rain of the morning cleared, which gave us the chance for Christina to don her wedding wellies so we could head out towards the fountain at the back of Hopetoun.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

All the details, from the wedding cake by Liggy’s through to the teacups (by friends of this fab pair who clearly are very popular!!!) worked so well alongside Planet Flowers’ styling. The ballroom at Hopetoun looked chic.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Wow – we heart Planet!
The speeches were great and it Christina’s dad had swapped his kilt for the actual suit he’d been married himself in one or two years ago. It looked fab!
The first dance set the tone for an awesome party…
The dance floor at Hopetoun was absolutely rocking as Kilter did a fab cover of Status Quo which had everyone literally jumping.
We even got the chance to do some nighttime shots with Chris and Christina around Hopetoun – sweet!
Christina, Chris – we love hanging out with you guys… Can’t wait to catch up with you super soon…
Lots of love,
A&N x

Rooftop views like these

Balmoral Hotel weddings have their own kind of magic. For starters you get to literally have the red carpet rolled out for you and be treated like royalty… and then (perhaps even more special) you get access to enviable rooftop views.

A little bit of perfect


11 May 2021

What could be more perfect than getting married in your garden in Edinburgh (especially when your garden has a lawn that was almost designed for outdoor parties)?
To say we’d been looking forward to this wedding for quite a while may well be the biggest understatement of the year.

Magic, Sparkle and Love

These two were among the few who set a wedding date for 2020 and stuck to it. Yes the plans changed slightly along the way (think plan A, plan B…) but in the end celebrating their wedding in the spectacular Barnbougle Castle with their closest family and friends was nothing short of perfect and they wouldn’t have changed a thing.
