Blánaid & Rory


Living and running a photography studio in the busy city that is Edinburgh, I sometimes forget that it’s a city that changes peoples lives.

People arrive as individuals and leave as husband and wife and as wedding photographers, we’re honoured to to be a small part of this journey.

Edinburgh means lots to Blánaid and Rory – it’s not only where they were engaged but also married…

The memories that will long stay with me from your wedding: the music that filled the day (from singing Whitney in your suite at the Balmoral to the oh so chic music by Spectrum); your wonderful parents with nearly 90 years of marriage between them (that deserves respect!) and the warmth of you all.

Blánaid and Rory thank you for allowing me to be part of your story.

Here’s to your city of Edinburgh; to you as you begin this new journey together and to many more return visits as husband and wife back in the years ahead.

Big Blue Sky love,

Niels (and Alie) 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


19 December 2020

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.
