ELOPE IN SCOTLAND

Let’s capture your best life and the way you love

chic city elopements or adventurous highland love stories

Scotland is the home of Outlander (did you know I am in season 2!), Harry Potter, whiskey, kilts, and bagpipes. Not to mention the most EPIC landscapes and romantic places in the world!

You don’t want to fall into the traditional trap of how weddings ‘ should be’

Do you not want the fuss and hoo ha of a big wedding?

Does HOW and WHY you get married matter to you?

Do you want to create a wedding that reflects you both as a couple and your beliefs?

Do you have the romantic idea of running away, just the two of you and some epic scenery and adventure?

If so I’m here to help you on your way to the most EPIC micro wedding or elopement. Let’s do things differently and focus on connection.

SCOTLAND ELOPEMENT PHOTOGRAPHER

WHY CHOOSE A MICRO WEDDING OR ELOPEMENT?

Small weddings and elopements allow you to focus on your connection as couple. They are authentic, free from stress, and allow you to plan an experience for you both to remember.

Elopements are so intimate and emotional… there’s nothing more special than just being with the two of you totally lost in the moment, surrounded by beauty in every direction. One great aspect of eloping is the flexibility you have to do what you want, as opposed to the average wedding day which is stuck to a timeline of the day. You can just have fun. Your day will still fly by, be sure to soak up every moment and treasure the photos from your incredible day.

Wee weddings and elopements are right for you if you have a sense of free spirit and adventure. Couples in the 18th Century began to come from Scotland to Gretna Green due to Scotlands relaxed marriage laws.A couple could be handfasted and declare themselves married.

Still to this day you have more freedoms in Scotland. You can marry anywhere..all you need is a registered marriage celebrant, two witnesses and to give at least 29 days notice of your intent to marry. There are no legally defined vows allowing you to express your relationship and definition of marriage in a personal and modern way.

Get married in your back garden, up a hill or by a loch. The choice is yours.

PLANNING TO ELOPE OUTSIDE OF SCOTLAND?

I also photograph across the UK, Europe & worldwide.

HELLO I’M LORAINE

(SHE/HER)

I take romantic, timeless photos with joy and feeling

I have been photographing weddings since 2009 having captured over 300 weddings.

I started photography as a teenager photographing bands on 35mm film. I love the mix analogue photography alongside digital with the nostalgic, authentic feel for slower paced moments with digital for the fast paced moments and party photos.

My joy is capturing love, and emotion and sharing that all in my photography. I pour my heart and soul into every wedding. I am honored to be able to capture the essence of your love story and create timeless images that you and your loved ones will cherish for a lifetime.

Elopement photography allows me to get to know each couple to tell your story authentically. Scotland has been my home for my whole life and I can trace my family back here for over 500 years. I come from a family who loved to climb munros (large hills for you non Scots!) and my heart is very much in the hills! My dad works as a surveyor on heritage buildings so much of my childhood was spent exploring incredible buildings across Scotland.

Alongside photography, I was a semi-professional dancer for 14 years and also do some acting. Did you know I’m in season 2 of Outlander?

All love is welcome here, LGBTQ friendly & inclusive photography.

I live in Edinburgh, Scotland but photograph across Scotland and beyond. I have traveled all over the UK and Europe to photograph including Norway, Italy, Spain & Portugal.

THE EXPERIENCE

Your wedding photography is not just for capturing beautiful, timeless photos, but also about working with a professional who makes you feel confident and gives you an enjoyable process from the beginning to the end.

I’m so excited to be part of your wedding day!! In order to enquire, the first step is to fill out the contact form. The next step is to arrange a chat with me via zoom or in person. I like to get to know my couples before booking, to be sure, we make a great fit. I only take on limited weddings per year so I can put everything into each wedding.

We have chatted on Zoom or in person and we are a good fit. This is when you tell me it’s a go and set up your client portal, woo hooo!! You will then sign the contract, make your payment via BACS, PayPal or Stripe, and we are set!!

We will be in contact LOADS during your wedding planning. We can keep in touch via email, text or social media and be besties. I send out lots of guides to help you plan your wedding day! 6 weeks from your wedding I will send out a final details form and we will catch up on zoom or in person before your wedding day. This is the exciting stage where everything becomes so fun and real!!

All the organisation we have done ahead of the wedding will make your day go super smoothly! Enjoy the day and I’ll document every moment for you.

Within a week of the session or wedding, I send out a sneak peek gallery. Then your final images are complete within your online gallery, within 8 to 12 weeks of your shoot date for weddings and 2 to 4 weeks, for any other session. Any albums and prints can be ordered after your images have been delivered.

Some BTS from Megan and Art’s wedding I photographed last month at @wedderliehouse last month. They perfectly blended their American and Russian traditions with their home in Scotland ✨ 

I’ve been loving using the osmo pocket 3 to shoot some little clips at weddings and need to post more on my reels!
