Amy & Nathan’s National Mining Museum Wedding

Amy and Nathan created a wedding full of little touches that shared who they were and showed off what’s most important to them.

From the unique industrial venue at the National Mining Museum Scotland in Newtongrange, Dalkeith that had Nathan beaming at the machines right down to the growler style glass containers filled with old photographs and fairy lights and the delicate floral and decorative touches in the hall by Amy to bring out the romance of the day.


The weather leading up to the day had been anything but good, however mother nature pulled it out of the hat with a fabulous day of sunshine meaning the grounds of the museum became a spill-over party zone.

With every part of the day going off without a hitch – including Amy keeping Nathan waiting like every good bride should – It was lovely to see them including their daughter Alice in their first dance now as the family starts its new chapter.

As the party got into full swing at night, and with Summer almost over, I snuck the Bride and Groom away for 15 minutes to take advantage of the encroaching early darkness to create some beautiful portraits in this truly unusual location before returning to the rest of the guests to dance the night away.
