Musa & Michelle: A Wintry Wedding, Orocco Pier, South Queensferry
I don’t know how best to describe these two people. I first met Musa and Michelle when we met for their engagement shoot one cloudy October Day at Calton Hill, Edinburgh. Musa is kind and unassuming, and Michelle is just so relaxed and fun! Definitely my kind of couple!
Their wedding day at Orocco Pier was actually a perfect reflection of that. This was my first wedding of 2018, captured on a freezing Scottish, Saturday afternoon in January. The day started with bridal preparations at Michelle’s home, with the girls enjoying a few glasses (*cough* bottles) of prosecco and then it was off to the lovely Orocco Pier in South Queensferry for the big event! Michelle showed no signs of nerves, whilst Musa waited patiently for his beautiful bride to arrive.
The fabulous Lesley Anderson conducted the Humanist Ceremony, which was a lovely, emotional affair enjoyed by their closest friends and family. With some warm winter light, I then captured their first moments as husband and wife as we braved the ice and enjoyed a walk along the pier, before the fun continued with the evening reception.
This is how their day went.
