As New Year was fast approaching and 2010 drew to a close, I had the honour of being the official Videographer for the wedding of Craig and Stephanie, who were married at the exquisite Mansfield Traquair, right in the heart of Edinburgh, Scotland.
This video is the final chapter from Craig and Stephanie's wedding DVD, and shows the first 3 dances during the evening celebrations. The Newlyweds had booked amazing Edinburgh based band Callanish. I used two full hi-definition video cameras (recording at 1920 x 1080 resolution = beautiful detail) to film this video, with one camera recording the band, the other mounted on a full Steadicam Merlin System, consisting of Steadicam Merlin stabiliser, vest and articulated arm, this means the camera 'floats through the air', resulting in a cinematic recording which is infinitely more pleasing to the eye than typical hand held shots.
According to the Mansfield Traquair website, "the building being called "Edinburgh's Sistine Chapel". From the grand neo-Romanesque architecture, to the truly exquisite murals of Phoebe Anna Traquair that adorn the interior walls, its absolute grandeur and beauty have made Mansfield Traquair Edinburgh's most spectacular, surprisingly versatile and flexible venue.
Having undergone painstaking restoration to preserve and restore Mansfield Traquair to its former glory, it is now recognised as a vital piece of Edinburgh's architectural and artistic heritage. Today, one of this utterly fabulous building's most unique features is its sheer versatility. Events here are spectacular from the very second you arrive. You can't fail to experience a sharp intake of breath when the cavernous spaces make their first impression. You'll wonder at the intrigue and beauty of the murals, the magnitude of the stone, and the sheer majesty and sense of occasion will complete your descent into a state of adulation.
Conveniently located at the eastern edge of Edinburgh's New Town, the Mansfield Traquair Centre, fondly known as Mansfield Traquair, is ideally situated for most guests. However, brushing practicality aside, it is upon entering through the magnificent doors for the very first time that the impact of this venue makes its mark. Your guests will be astounded and intrigued by the wonder and majesty of "Edinburgh's Sistine Chapel", the inspirational Mansfield Traquair".
Not much more you can say about this venue really!
A fantastic wedding day in an awe inspiring venue!
