A Drizzly Yet Demure Wedding at Hotel Du Vin
Last week saw me donning my smartest waterproof and venturing across the glistening cobbles of St Andrews to join Emily and Jamie at their gorgeous wedding at the lovely Hotel Du Vin – one of St Andrews’ quaintest spots. Cold? It was FREEZING. Like, couldn’t-feel-my-fingers-cold, but then, that’s Scotland in November for you! But the bride wrapped herself in navy tartan and bravely suggested we do some photos by the harbour, a chilly request that yielded some cracking results. Take a browse through their wedding slideshow and enjoy Emily & Jamie’s special day.

Relaxed St Andrews Wedding Photography
November in Scotland is not usually the time couples choose to marry but this day suited Emily and Jamie. They wanted a very intimate wedding and were very keen to have wedding photographs down at the harbour. They had met and fallen in love while they were both students at St Andrews University. It was so fitting for them to return with their close family and friends for their wedding. People had come from all over the world, mainly America, to see this lovely young couple be married. The ceremony took place in St James Church in St Andrews. It’s a beautiful little chapel and perfect for an intimate wedding.
After a very lovely and moving ceremony the guests headed to the nearby Hotel Du Vin and Emily, Jamie and myself went down to the harbour for some couple photos. It was pretty cold but Emily and Jamie were wrapped up in each others arms and smiled throughout out little photo session. One benefit of a winter wedding is that the harbour was very quiet and quite different from photographing when it’s full of tourists. Emily had brought a beautiful tartan shawl to keep her warm and to add a bit of Scottish tradition to her wedding look.
