Stephanie and Rafal went the non traditional DIY Wedding route. After recently moving to Dubai the guys actually decided to get married earlier in the year, but still really wanted to throw a party with all their friends. It might have been an Edinburgh Wedding but the party itself was completely international. I met up with Rafal and Stephanie earlier in the day while the wedding prep was going on. Probably the most laid back and chilled out I have ever seen a couple on their big day… mmm I dunno maybe because they were already married ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
They booked the super hip Thomas Morton Hall in the middle of even hipper Leith. Thomas Morton Hall is a brilliant period building with a really distinctive art deco/vintage feel that added to the homemade aesthetic of the day. It also gave it a little of old fashioned throwback style.
From getting ready we hopped in the taxi over to Thomas Morton hall where Stephanie and Rafal both met their guests on arrival, which felt like such a different but completely great way of doing things. A close friend then proceeded over the vows, joined by a personal reading of a poem read by Rafal’s father.
It was then time for a large group shot of all the guests school picture style. Before everyone hurtled into taxis to be taken to the granary by the Leith shore for lunch.
After that it was back over to Thomas Morton Hall to enjoy some dancing and a Ceilidh which had a special significance since this is how the Rafal and Stephanie met up in the first place, many moons ago just outside of Edinburgh. Nothing like a good Scottish Ceilidh and a little alcohol to spark some romance;-)
