SCROLL TO BEGIN
Say goodbye to long guest lists and hello to the Highlands! Have an adventure and elope in Scotland.
Few, if any, places in the UK evoke such strong feelings upon hearing the name than “The Highlands” Since the 19th century – when the first tourists began to arrive, the Scottish Highlands have been famed for their wild nature and awe inspiring scenery. Today the region’s biggest draw remains its magnificent landscape. At almost every turn is a vista that will stop you in your tracks, from the bluebell woods, gentle hills and warm autumn colours of Loch Lomond and the Trossachs to the primeval grandeur of Coigach and Assynt, where pillared peaks rear above desolate expanses of gnarled and ancient gneiss. It is for this reason that we are so honoured and blessed to be working as Highlands Elopement Photographers.
Legend and tradition run deep in the Highlands.
Crumbling forts and monastic cells were once home to Gaelic chieftains and Irish saints; lonely beaches and mountain passes once echoed to the clash of clan battles; and empty glens are still haunted by the ghosts of the Clearances. History is everywhere: in the tumbled stones of abandoned crofts preserved on a hillside like a fossil fragment; in the proud profile of broch and castle silhouetted against a Highland sunset; and in the Gaelic lilt of Hebridean speech and the Nordic twang of Shetland dialect.
It is for these reasons that we chose to make our home here and more importantly our wonderful couples choose to spend the most special day of their lives here.
We talk of Edinburgh as our second home, and we photograph elopements in Edinburgh on a monthly basis. But The Highlands are our first home. We have lived and worked as a wedding photographer in The Highlands for a number of years and every single day we look up at our mountains and marvel at their beauty, their ferociousness, the wildness & and the history that they have witnessed. Whilst we live on the West Coast, we love the East just as much – from the amazing coastline to the Cairngorms.
So why not choose to make a little bit more history, personal history, amongst the same mountains and glens?

we help with
"We hired Matt and Jodie as our elopement photographers, and we couldn’t have chosen any better! They made our day truly special.
We did not have any experience with photoshoots and were quite nervous about it. However, they somehow managed to make us feel comfortable and at ease during the shoot and we had a lot of fun.
The pictures and the video are simply amazing!
If you have the chance, do not hesitate to book with them. You won’t regret it! And try to climb a mountain with them. It's great, even (or should I say especially?) in a wedding dress!"

All the legal stuff you’ll need to know
As photographers who have a lot of experience helping couples elope, we can always point you in the right direction, but we always recommend asking experts when it comes to filling out the legal paperwork. Your celebrant is a great source of information,
or you can also find more at the Scotland Government Marriage Page.
A bit about cars and driving on the “correct” side of the road
That was for all you Outlanders who tell us we’re driving on the wrong side of the road. If you feel comfortable, we recommend renting a car and driving yourself around. We promise you
get used to being on the other side of the road. Just be aware—we drive on the left and the roads around here can get very narrow.
Think of it like part of the adventure!
We’ll happily drive you around on your elopement day to make everything easier!
