The Caves is a truly unique venue that makes up the sub-structure of the 18th Century South Bridge. There is no venue more Edinburgh than the Caves, or more Scottish, if you consider there was once so much Whisky stored here that it became known as "Whisky Row".
Elaine and Duncan's ceremony and reception both took place at The Caves, a favourite venue of Elaine and Duncan's. What made the day extra special was Duncan's dad was marrying them, as he is a Minister with the Church of Scotland. A nice personal touch to the day that for both Duncan and George must have been very nerve wracking for the pair of them.
Below are some of my favourite intimate shots of Elaine and Duncan, most came from the speeches and first dance. with Duncan being a keen DJ, he got a good say in the music later on in the night. Much to the dislike of some older relatives, and maybe even his wife!
Although one of the more difficult wedding venues to photograph in, The Caves really is a good choice for those wanting something a little different from their wedding day. Us photographers will always have to cope the best we can with the tricky lighting conditions there, but this is definitely not a complaint from me. It's a great location for weddings and photographs alike.
