Tips for Planning Your Scotland Destination Wedding

If you are seeking a wild and thrilling destination for your upcoming wedding, Scotland should be at the top of your list. Dotted with fairy tale castles, diverse landscapes, and old world charm, Scotland is a place that provides a stunning backdrop for your destination wedding or elopement. This gorgeous corner of the world is well known for its lush and vibrant greens, and its diverse terrain allows you to experience varied environments all within a short traveling distance. There is no limit to the wonder you can enjoy with Scotland’s rolling hills of purple heather, snowcapped mountains, lush valleys filled with wildflowers, and craggy outcroppings. I’ve listed a few tips below to help you plan your incredible Scotland wedding.


Plan Your Route

Scotland is home to a broad range of travel options including mountains and hills, beaches, national parks, extensive gardens, historical ruins, unparalleled dining, and unique lodging options. There is so much to see and do here that it could take a lifetime to experience it all. However, having a plan and choosing beforehand what you want to do and see most will help ensure you do not miss anything.


Choose Your Lodging

In Scotland, you have the opportunity to stay in places you may never have dreamed was possible. Scotland is home to friendly guesthouses and bed and breakfasts. You can stay in a lighthouse keeper’s cottage or opt for some time on a working farm. Yurts, safari tents, pods, and other unique lodging allow you to experience extreme comfort while still in the stunning outdoors.


Ask the Locals

The people of Scotland are as unique as the landscape and are your best source for information about the best it has to offer. The Visit Scotland website has a bevy of insider tips from local Scots to use to your advantage.


Scotland: Destination Wedding Photography

My wedding photography is documentary and artistic in nature, capturing the whole of your wedding day in a beautiful way. The way your hair blows in the wind as you hug your loved one - the way your family looks at you as you walk down the aisle - how the sun lights up alleyways outside your venue - all of these small things have meaning when put together in a large story format. Scotland fits me well.

If you value photography and want a beautiful approach to your Scotland wedding photos, this could be the perfect fit.
