Fiona and Amy at the Botanic Gardens, Edinburgh
The Botanic Gardens are a mini-paradise for photographers - but not only that. There is something special in the air there - and it is no coincidence that it tends to appeal to lovers of nature. Fiona and Amy are both vets who met in South Africa. There are some people who positively glow with energy and zest, and when we met Fiona and Amy we couldn't help but be caught up in their charm and enthusiasm, and the Botanics were the perfect forum for their wedding. When we met up a week or two before the wedding, Fiona was just heading off on a mountain biking trip, and we were all crossing our fingers and our toes that she wouldn't break any bones in the last few days before the wedding. Happily she survived intact, and the wedding day itself went perfectly, with ideal roasting weather to match, and an touching and humorous speech from Fiona's sister. And there was so much fun being had on the dance floor that it was all that we could do to hold ourselves back from stopping taking pictures and joining in.
