Congratulations to Sarah and Ken, who got married at The Principal Edinburgh George Street Hotel ( old George Hotel) on 2nd April. They couldn’t have better weather at the beginning of April in Scotland. It was a beautiful , spring wedding in heart of romantic Edinburgh.
We really like working at George Hotel, as this place have a real charm and it is simply great for photos. This time as we were lucky to have fantastic weather after ceremony we went to Qeen Street Gardens and organized some family photos , at this time of the year it was a great place for romantic/artistic photos with Sarah and Ken, with flowering trees and beautiful natural lighting. When we came back to hotel we organized few more photos with bride and groom at few our favourite places . What we really love at George hotel is large, ceremony room with beautiful chandelier and mirrored walls ( with candles or christmas lighting gives great effects for photos), bridal suite with great panoramic view on Edinburgh and large windows and terrace, beautiful staircase inside the hotel, amazing entrance which we just love photographing after dark. Many couples ask us where they should have their photos orgaized,as they are afraid because George hotel is located in city center and close to street there is no place for big group photo and for artistic photos with bride and groom. Many times they asked us if we should go travel somewhere after ceremony for photos. We always say that in our opinion this vebue is great for city chic weddings and it has a charm , it is better to show this charm on photos, and do street style,city character photos than pretend that it is a countryside wedding and spend lots of time for travel, we don’t have to travel we have everything on place. For large group photo of around 100 guests there are to options we can arrange it just after ceremony at the ceremony room ( we did it on October on michelle and andy’s wedding you can find their blog post here) , if the weather is bad , or we can do it outside there is a space on right side of the building ( we did it on Sarah and Ken’s wedding as you can see it below). We love George hotel after dark, the entrance has a great lighting and when we go outside street lights gives extra effects for photos . Street style photos after dark just outside George hotel it is an idea we love photographing always when we work at this venue. Apart of beautiful architecture, and fantastic photo opportunities it gives us we can’t miss to mension that the staff working at this venue is also very helpful and friendly, always when we worked at George hotel we were impressed how everything was organized perfectly. The Principal Edinburgh George Street Hotel is definitely one of our favourite wedding venues in Edinburgh. We are looking forward to photographing next wedding here on July this year.
