Real Life Scottish wedding: The Balmoral Hotel, Edinburgh


Vivian & Hugh

Recipe for Happily Ever After


It’s always super special when couples travel from the other side of the world to get married in Edinburgh. Let’s be honest Edinburgh is the perfect city for a destination wedding. For Vivian and Hugh it was even more special as they had double celebrations (for Hugh’s birthday) and they brought their friends and family along for the adventure.

The Balmoral Hotel was the dream place for this celebration, which was more than a little glam and elegant… and just take a peak at those golden rooftop views – swoon!

Vivian and Hugh thank you for letting us share in this wedding party. We had a ball with you and your besties.
