Roberta and Jon - A 'Christmas Themed Extravaganza' Wedding #thecaves #christmas #edinburgh #edinburghweddingphotographer #mattephotography #citychambers #winterwedding #decemberbride
The Bride herself described her wedding as - "A Christmas Themed Extravaganza!" This is one of our favourite December weddings from 2014. And now we've finally got the chance to share it with you! The lovely creative Roberta and Jon tied the knot here in Edinburgh and had us along to witness this super-fun festive themed wedding.
You may remember Roberta and Jon from their VERY FESTIVE ENGAGEMENT shoot we did featuring a few Christmassey delights and of course their beautiful baby Eric the Abyssinian pussycat. Eric sadly could not be there on the big day, but one of the wedding party was dispatched to check on him during the proceedings to make sure he wasn't too put out :-)
Roberta and Jon are a bright creative couple both in their work and nuptials. Jon is a biology Phd student and Roberta is an department head (or chief nag as she puts it :-) ) at Rockstar North. What made this Christmas theme extra special apart from the fact that its a season close to both Bride and Grooms hearts was the fact that so many crafty DIY personal touches were involved in the details. Jon hand made the gorgeous cake; Roberta also handmade the bridesmaids dresses, the bouquets , the buttonholes and even her own dress was adapted from a vintage gown she found online. Apparently last minute sewing was taking place until about 5am on the morning of the wedding! If they were sleep deprived though, no one showed it as all were in super festive spirits throughout. And as you can see it was all worth as the Bride and her Christmas Wrapping Paper Bridesmaids looked fantastic!
After a wonderfully relaxed ceremony at the city chambers we wandered down to their reception venue to ......you guessed it - The Caves for the third time this year. The Caves on the Cowgate is one of Edinburgh's most atmospheric and unusual venues for weddings and receptions in the city centre. With a mixture of old world creature comfort and gothic vaulted ceilings, this old whisky store has some amazing character to add to any wedding.
