Edinburgh City Chambers Wedding

For Fiona and Peter knew fairly early that they wanted to have their wedding at Edinburgh City Chambers. Fiona and Peter live in London with their daughter Agnes. Peter works for the London School of Economics and Fiona is a professional dancer. Fiona grew up in Scotland, and with her family still here, the choice of a venue for their wedding was easy.

When I first spoke to Fiona and Peter, they were very clear that they didn’t want to turn their wedding into a big affair. They wanted the day to be a celebration of their commitment to each other and as a family unit. Their little daughter was going to be their flower girl. They also wanted to make sure that their wedding was going to be a celebration with their close friends and family.

This was my first wedding at Edinburgh City Chambers since they had moved their weddings across the road to the other side of the Royal Mile. What a great venue it is! From the European Room where the ceremony took place to the actual reception room with its fabulous views across the New Town!

Fiona and Peter had also put a lot of thought into the table decorations. With their understated elegance the details really complemented the elegant setting of the City Chambers with its oak panelled walls.
