Gordon Nicolson Kiltmakers, Kudos Bridal Boutique and other Edinburgh indie wedding suppliers got together at Riddle’s Court in the Old Town to bring a contemporary ‘cool Caledonia’ wedding story to life
When some of the leading lights of the Edinburgh wedding scene knock heads together, good things happen. Even though it’s been a tough 12 months for the sector, this photo shoot created some positivity, as Emma Wilkinson from Highlandwear outfitter and groomswear specialist Gordon Nicolson Kiltmakers explains: “After a challenging year for the industry, we felt it was high time to work together and celebrate some of Edinburgh’s best in the bridal business.”
“Our collaborative editorial marries timeless elegance and contemporary style with the polish and eye for detail that Gordon Nicolson Kiltmakers has become known for. The romantic nature of our Highland Mist tartan was brought to life with thoughtful styling –even the bouquet was inspired by the colours of the menswear,” continues Emma.
The couple playing ‘bride and groom’ are, in fact, real-life couple Rose and Julien, who also happen to be photographers. Add Edinburgh-based photographer, Nathan Ross, into the mix and you have a very talented trio of photographers-cum-models!
