Highland Heart

Wedding and Engagement Photography for Small Weddings and Couples who choose to Elope to Scotland.
From the Heart of the Scottish Highlands.

Are you looking to Elope to Scotland? I’d love to be your guide!

I have loved the Scottish Highlands for a long time – my mother is from the Western Isles, and my father is from the far north of Scotland. While I spent much of my youth growing up in the Central Belt of Scotland, my childhood memories are of holidays spent exploring the highlands.

Two years ago I, along with my wife Fiona and our young family moved north – now based in Inverness, the capital of the Scottish Highlands. It is a beautiful part of the world to live in, and a privilege to show it the many couples who choose Scotland as an ideal destination to come and explore.

As a photographer it is a special privilege to share some of my favourite locations with couples, whether for an engagement shoot, or for a special elopement wedding – with every trip I take, and with each couple, I find myself discovering new locations!

I’d love to hear from you, or see how I can help you discover more of Scotland, while recording some great memories along the way.

Eloping to Scotland – Some Frequently Asked Questions

Is Highland Heart different to your other wedding photography?

My Highland Heart sessions are designed for couples who are planning a small wedding, pre wedding or engagement session.

Each session includes a variety of coverage throughout the day, whether you have a wedding planned or if you just want to get dressed up and go and explore the beautiful Scottish landscape!

Highland Heart sessions are great for those planning smaller weddings (less than 25 guests) or for couples who are either newly engaged, or who want to elope to Scotland.

If you’re ready to go an explore and make some memories throughout the Highlands and Islands, Highland Heart is for you!
