Destination Wedding Videographer in Scotland

Destination Wedding Videographer in Scotland

Scotland has a rich history, dating back to Roman times. It has a unique culture, including its own language, customs, and traditions. Scotland is also known for its beautiful landscapes and nature, from the rugged Highlands to the rolling hills of the Lowlands.

Edinburgh, the capital city of Scotland, is known for its stunning architecture and historic landmarks, such as Edinburgh Castle, which sits atop an extinct volcano and has been a royal residence for centuries.

Another notable landmark is the Palace of Holyroodhouse, Scotland’s monarch’s official residence. The Old Town of Edinburgh is a UNESCO World Heritage site (and you know how much we love sites like these because of their history and natural beauty), known for its medieval and Georgian architecture, as well as the famous Royal Mile, a street that runs from Edinburgh Castle to the Palace of Holyroodhouse.

Edinburgh also has a vibrant cultural scene, hosting many festivals throughout the year, and it holds the largest arts festival in the world – The Edinburgh Festival Fringe. The city also has a diverse food scene, from traditional Scottish cuisine to international options, which is always a must to have and try while you’re traveling.

The city has a unique and lively vibe, with a mix of modern and traditional elements. The residents are friendly and welcoming, and the city offers a great balance between urban and natural experiences. You can explore the city’s history and culture by day, and if you’re still feeling the energy and rush running through, you can enjoy the city’s nightlife and vibrant atmosphere by night. Unfortunately, the last time I visited the city I was still under age so I had to skip this part ahah!

I would say that, besides the obvious Edinburgh Castle, Scotland is the best place to go if you love medieval stuff or if you’ve always wanted to get married in a castle. There are so many to see and visit, so make sure to take some time off for a good trip. You can even get married in some of these castles.

What if I want to get married or even elope outside of Edinburgh?

That would be the easy part, because Scotland is home to a diverse range of habitats, including heather moors, ancient woodlands, and pristine lochs. Its coast, home to unique flora and fauna and the most incredible landscapes, is also dotted with picturesque and one-of-a-kind islands, including the Shetland, Orkney, and Hebrides. Honestly, one of the reasons I love so much being a destination wedding videographer in Scotland is because of its incredible landscapes. Considering getting married on the outdoors may be challenging but it will for sure be a one of a kind experience.

Isle of Skye wedding

Hebrides archipelago holds the Isle of Skye, one of the most breathtaking places on Earth. If you’re a couple that loves nature and the outdoors, you probably already heard about this magical place. The Isle of Skye is a great place for an elopement or a small intimate wedding for a variety of reasons.

Firstly, it offers a wide range of stunning natural landscapes, from rugged mountains to picturesque coastal views, sweeping moorlands, and pristine lochs. Visitors to the Isle of Skye will be struck by the island’s wild and unspoiled beauty, as well as its abundance of wildlife, including golden eagles, red deer, and otters.

One of the most iconic features of the Isle of Skye is the Old Man of Storr, a towering pinnacle of rock that stands out against the island’s rolling hills. The island is also known for its picturesque villages and historic sites, such as the medieval castle of Dunvegan, which has been the seat of the Chief of the Clan MacLeod for 800 years.

The island also has an interesting geology, with many rock formations that have been sculpted by the elements over the centuries, such as The Quiraing and the Old Man of Hoy.

Secondly, the Isle of Skye is relatively secluded and remote, making this the perfect location for a private and intimate ceremony or an elopement. Additionally, the island has a variety of traditional croft houses, cozy bed and breakfasts, and charming inns, where you or your guests can stay for the duration of the wedding.

Another destination that we have to mention is Glencoe. Trust me, having an elopement in the highlands Glencoe will be unique, adventurous and we will be able to create truly a masterpiece with your wedding. This epic spot is known for the views, wildlife and the typical Scottish ambiance that you can find there.

Scotland is a great place to get married for adventurous couples who love to travel and love the outdoors and nature for a variety of reasons. Scottish culture is also very unique, with a long history of traditional Celtic music and Gaelic language, which can be incorporated into a wedding ceremony for an authentic Scottish experience. You can have the most luxurious and romantic experience getting married in a gorgeous castle or a Victorian house and its gardens, or a wedding setting in the wilderness, surrounded by natural elements and enjoying the true beauty of this country.

And if you are looking for a destination wedding videographer in Scotland who is as adventurous as you are or who is able to just enjoy a fun and relaxed wedding at a gorgeous castle, feel free to reach out to me and chat a bit more.

By this time you must be asking how much does a videographer cost?

The cost of a videographer can vary greatly depending on factors such as location, experience, and the services they (we) offer. Take into account that I can be with you for a day if you’re having a more tradicional wedding in a castle for example, or I can stay with you for 3 or 4 days while you’re experiencing Scotland and it’s landscapes. On average, you can expect starting prices around £2,000 for a videographer.

Is it better to have a photographer or videographer for your wedding?

Ok, many may say this is personal choice, but for me, these are the 2 main things or vendors you should be investing on your wedding or elopement. Flowers dry off, your wedding dress will end up in a closet, but the memories that both your photographer and videographer can get you are priceless. And at the same time, our final products are so different from each other, so please consider having both at your wedding. Feel free to reach out to me for my travel plans for 2023 and my wedding video packages for Scotland. We can also recommend you some of the best photographers in the world.

How much are wedding venues in Scotland?

Wedding venues in Scotland can also vary greatly in cost. It depends on factors such as location, size, and the services offered by the venue. On average, you can expect to pay around £2,000-£5,000 for a wedding venue in Scotland.

If you’re considering an elopement, forget all of this and we can focus on some other stuff. I’ll be glad to help you during the process if you want me too.

Is Isle of Skye worth the trip?

Absolutely! Isle of Skye is a beautiful location that is definitely worth the trip. The island is known for its stunning landscapes, including the Quiraing, the Old Man of Storr and the Fairy Pools. It is also home to many historic castles, including Dunvegan Castle, which is the oldest continuously inhabited castle in Scotland.
