The Rustling of the Leaves – A Playful Edinburgh Engagement Shoot – Images by Stuart Craig Photography

Today I am thrilled to share a gorgeous autumnal Edinburgh Engagement Shoot captured by Stuart Craig Photography at Princes Street Gardens.

Our playful couple are Roisin and Lewis.

Roisin actually hails from London and Lewis is a local boy from Leith.

They first met in Italy after being introduced by a mutual friend and love blossomed.

Roisin and Lewis are getting married in June next year, and have chosen the magnificent Balbirnie House in Fife to host both their ceremony and reception.

 

Balbirnie House is a delightful 18th century Georgian mansion nestled amidst  400 acres of rolling parkland in the heart of Fife.

A small luxury award-winning country house hotel which combines fine food, lovely surroundings and above all a real sense of friendly Scottish hospitality, creating a quite unique setting for a Wedding

With 31 bedrooms, a 3 bedroom Triplex apartment, 2 restaurants (The Orangery with speciality grill section and Balbirnie Bistro), 8 different private rooms seating from 4 to 250 and beautifully landscaped gardens, Balbirnie offers a wonderful experience.

 

Stuart Craig who will cover next years celebrations met the happy couple for a chat, and brought the camera along to get to know the couple and capture some memories in the leafy surroundings of Princes Street Gardens.

Princes Street Gardens is a public park in the centre of Edinburgh, Scotland, in the shadow of Edinburgh Castle.

The Gardens were created in two phases in the 1770s and 1820s following the long draining of the Nor Loch and building of the New Town, beginning in the 1760s.

The loch, situated on the north side of the town, was originally an artificial creation forming part of its medieval defences and made expansion northwards difficult.

The gardens run along the south side of Princes Street and are divided by The Mound. East Princes Street Gardens run from The Mound to Waverley Bridge, and cover 8.5 acres.

The larger West Princes Street Gardens cover 29 acres and extend to the adjacent churches of St. John’s and St. Cuthbert’s, near Lothian Road in the west.

The Gardens are the best known park in Edinburgh, having the highest awareness and visitor figures for both residents and visitors to the city.

Various concerts and other events are held at the Ross Bandstand including the Festival Fireworks Concert and during the city’s Hogmanay celebrations.

This makes it also a very popular spot for Engagement shoots, especially with the spectacular Edinburgh Castle in the background.

Thanks to Stuart for once again sharing these incredible images from this fun, playful Edinburgh Engagement Shoot.

I really love the colours of autumn, and getting wrapped up in cosy clothes and going for those brisk walks in the park that make your cheeks rosy.

Roisin and Lewis look like they had a lot of laughs on their afternoon with Stuart which is really what it all about…contentness and enjoying each others company.
