Today we are looking back at Candida and Dimitri’s wedding Edinburgh’s historic Signet Library .  I promise you, this is one of the most elegant weddings you’ve ever seen! The attention to detail in this literary themed wedding, from literary inspired stationery and table decorations, was astonishing and such a delight to capture.

The couple met whilst students, and years later Dimitri proposed  to Candida in the Great Hall of Edinburgh Castle, whilst enjoying a weekend break in Edinburgh.

Candida’s elegant updo was styled by Ladylux Salon, with a floral headpiece made of gypsophila adding the final touch.

During the drinks reception, we took a quick trip up Arthur’s Seat for some wedding photos.

You can’t tell by looking at this picture, but the reason Candida isn’t wearing her veil is that we were standing in a wind tunnel and her veil was blown off!

The evening music was provided by DJ Phetta and as Dimitri is of Greek heritage, a few Greek traditional dances were danced as well, including a  ‘Kalamatianos’ for the ladies and a ‘Sousta’ for the men.
