SCROLL TO BEGIN

We are The Sassenachs - Edinburgh Elopement Photographers

Elopement Photographers in Edinburgh

We are The Sassenachs... and maybe you are too?

We are Edinburgh Elopement Photographers and we capture natural, timeless images for couples who want a simple yet beautiful celebration.

With over a decade of experience photographing everything from large, lively weddings to the most intimate elopements, we now specialise in only capturing teeny, tiny elopements. And, without wanting to sound like we are bragging (we are), it really is the best job ever.

We always aim to capture your day as it unfolds keeping your elopement as far away from being a photoshoot as possible. Whether it’s exchanging vows at the top of Arthur’s Seat with the city sprawled below, or in Edinburgh City Chambers on the historic Royal Mile, you’re here to celebrate your way.

That’s the magic of elopements in Edinburgh—they’re truly enchanting.

For many couples, eloping to Edinburgh means a romantic ceremony for two, for others it will include a few family and friends. Whichever you go for, we've got your back.

And the best thing about eloping? There are no rules. Wear a white dress. Or Red. Or Black. Or don't wear a dress at all (probably best you wear something though).

ELOPEMENT PHOTOGRAPHERS, EDINBURGH
YEARS FROM NOW, YOU’LL HOLD YOUR EDINBURGH ELOPEMENT IMAGES IN YOUR HANDS AND FEEL LIKE YOU’RE OPENING A BOOK

Your images are your story, your history telling your adventure in Edinburgh.

And this book will draw you back to not just the events of the day, but the emotions. The true colour of the sky and clouds and the way you laughed when your partner grabbed you tight. The wind playing with the hem of your dress and the moment you looked at your new spouse and were overwhelmed with the everythingness of the moment.

All of it, there in your hands and in your memories because of your photos.

“We couldn't be happier with Clover. It was truly an elegant experience from start to finish. We were treated like royalty.”

“Our pictures from Clover are breathtaking. I still can't believe that's actually us. What an incredible, once-in-a-lifetime experience”

“Cannot thank Matt and Jodie enough for their kindness and being a part of our very special day in lovely Edinburgh! Not only are they charming and hilarious, but they are masterful professionals and go the extra mile. They will put you at ease, even in ice cold, pouring rain.

We are from America and had never even been to Scotland prior, luckily our trust was not misplaced. From videos calls prior to when you get your pictures they handle everything with the utmost care. Again, thank you, Matt and Jodie! We hope to remain in contact for many years to come.”
