A very special Inchcolm Island Wedding

When I was asked if I would photograph Rachel & Dominic’s wedding on Inchcolm Island I was beyond excited.   And what a lovely couple too.  A win win situation!

Rachel & Dominic got ready at Orocco Pier in South Queensferry and then headed along to Hawes Pier to catch the ”Maid of the Forth” to Inchcolm Island.

It was a grey rainy day –  but that did not matter a hoot.  The excitement of the day and the trip overcame any adversities.  I think the pictures say it all.


Rachel looking so happy and beautiful –  all ready to get married

It was a rather a wet day  –  but that certainly did not dampen spirits

Fun and photos in the rain!

A quick paddle before the boat left.  Well why wouldn’t you – even in a wedding gown.

Fun on the return boat trip

The joy with these two was infectious

Walking along South Queensferry high street.    The coolest bride ever –  not worried about her dress at all!!
