“Sarah!!! You are amazing, these photos are unbelievable. You have truly captured the joy and happiness of the night. Thank you so so so much!!! “
– Kath & Graeme

Here we go, the last Fotomaki wedding of 2021. Whoop! There are some amazing weddings coming up in 2022 but for now, feast your eyes on this New Year’s Eve extravaganza.  

Kath and Graeme had got married back at the beginning of December so this New Year’s Eve party was all about the celebration. They were determined to kick off 2022 in style and boy did they pull it off. 

The lovely Jo + Liam had photographed their wedding ceremony but weren’t available for this wedding party so recommended my good self. We have got such a great network of fellow wedding photographers in Scotland. We recommend people, they recommend us. It’s ace. Community over competition! 

Wedding photography at the Biscuit Factory, Edinburgh

The Biscuit Factory in Edinburgh is just the coolest wedding venue. It was an actual Crawford’s Biscuit factory way back in the 1940s and 50s. Which of course led to lots of biscuit chat at the wedding. My favourite is of course a Kit Kat and I’ll fight anyone who says it isn’t the best. If you’ve not heard of Crawford’s don’t worry, I hadn’t either. Turns out though that they’re now part of McVities, AKA biscuit giants of the UK! 

Enough biscuit chat for now. Back to Kath, Graeme and New Year. The Biscuit Factory is a real blank canvas and Kath and Graeme decided to go for a street food, festival style vibe complete with arcade games. It looked awesome. 

About half their guests had to pull out because of self-isolation or covid scares. It was a total bummer but Kath and Graeme were determined not to let it ruin their celebration. They were so chilled about it all and the 70+ guests who were able to be there had the best time with them.

New Year’s Eve wedding celebration

Kath started the night in her wedding dress. Of course! Any excuse to get a wedding dress on again! Then just before midnight, she changed into another beautiful outfit, silk trousers complete with a beaded top. She looked stunning. Graeme was back in his tartan trews and very dapper he looked too.

The night started with a few wee speeches, Kath and Graeme thanked everyone for coming to celebrate with them. Guests were greeted with signature cocktails (Kath and Graeme’s favourites) before enjoying fizz, local ales, a whole host of different cocktails, and burritos. Shout out to the guys on the burrito van. They surprised Kath and Graeme with personalised stickers on each wrap. It’s not every day you get your face stuck to a burrito. And man, those burritos (can I say burrito anymore?!) were DELICIOUS! 

Back inside the nine-piece band was rocking the dancefloor. Their brass section was so cool. Ahead of the countdown to midnight Kath, Graeme, and I went for a wander around to grab some portraits. I had to think outside the box doing pictures in a dark factory but my creativity was fizzing and I loved the challenge. 

Back at the party, a champagne tower had been set up. Forget cutting the cake, I’m all about the champagne towers now! As you’ll expect, from that moment on the night descended into utter, amazing carnage! Party blowers and hats were handed out as the band broke into Loch Lomond for NYE! 

Now for those of you not in the know, Loch Lomond is a bonkers but brilliant Scottish wedding tradition. At midnight, at every Scottish wedding, the band will start playing Loch Lomond by Runrig. All the guests form a circle and link arms with the couple in the midst of the circle. As the chorus starts everyone runs into the middle and rushes the couple. It’s basically a wedding mosh pit and I bloody love it! It’s the best. I’m always right in the middle of the mayhem, oh the life of a wedding photographer! 

What a brilliant wedding celebration, I had an amazing time. Everyone had an amazing time. Kath and Graeme had really made the most of such a good venue and put their stamp all over it.

Plus did I mention there were burritos?!
