Eoin & Kirsty’s Winter Mansfield Traquair Wedding was a whole lotta fun!
It’s always extra special when you know the wedding couple personally and Eoin and Kirsty certainly qualify. Long ago when I was searching for a nursery for my daughter I met Kirsty and she became my kid’s favourite nursery nurse. Then my son went to Kirsty as well and eventually I helped Eoin at the very start of his own photography journey with some lessons. Being at their wedding was like being with family, it was warm, emotional, and super duper fun.
The amazing venue Mansfield Traquair is found in the heart of Edinburgh city center and if you’re looking for a wow wedding venue like it’s straight out of a Disney movie this is it. Twinkly lights everywhere and paintings that make you feel like pasta should be the wedding meal and everyone should be speaking Italian. It is known as Edinburgh’s Sistine Chapel for a reason!
The day was as we call it in Scotland “baltic” and I’m not sure they have forgiven me yet for making them all head outside for the confetti! Stopping traffic is just one of my super powers! After the confetti, we went off for a wander around the area for the couple’s shots. Knoxland Films, my videographer pals for the day, came along and I love working together with the video peeps to get Kirsty and Eoin everything they wanted on the day.
We had to include some shots of Ted and Gracie the couple’s dogs who they adoreeeeee and also little Lucy who sadly passed before the wedding day and was due to be guest of honor, she had her own little memorial set up with cute doggy biscuits.
The evening came around and the bride had a massive surprise for her new husband, out came a very sparkly dude with a saxophone, and the crowd went wild! I swear it was like we were photographing a gig, the energy was insane and it was an epic way to round out the day. Congrats Eoin and Kirsty!
