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.

By the Beach

An outdoor wedding ceremony overlooking the bay in the middle of one of the hottest Scottish summers is one of life’s gifts (and perfect planning on the part of Helen and James)

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

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.
