emily and george edinburgh elopement photographer the vennel edinburgh castle

Emily and George reached out in 2023 for photography services for their Edinburgh elopement. From the south of England, they were headed up to Scotland to tie the knot without anyone knowing. 

Because they weren’t bringing any friends or family along, they needed witnesses and my husband and I were happy to oblige! 

I met the couple and their bagpiper at Edinburgh City Chambers, which has just recently begun allowing bagpipers to play in the courtyard, a welcome surprise! 

We headed into the Wee Nook for the ceremony before heading over to St. Giles for a quiach ceremony in the courtyard to celebrate the newly married couple. 

We spent the rest of our time heading around the city, visiting iconic locations like Victoria Street, the Vennel, and Dean Village for photos. Major respect to Emily for her lack of coat and her heels, all on a breezy January day!
