Shooting wedding videography in Scotland is something I have loved doing over the past 17 years of specialising in wedding videography, from filming elopements in Skye to grand events in one of Scotland’s many incredible castles.
Choosing a wedding videographer to film your day in Scotland can be a tricky one with so many different options out there. Some people prefer videographers to employ means to collect ‘production value’ using lots of drone shots, heavy equipment, sliders or even dolly tracks and cranes to shoot the day. In my opinion I prefer you to enjoy the day without any intrusion what-so-ever and that is exactly how I go about filming all of my weddings in Scotland.

One of my favourite Scottish venues to shoot wedding videography has got to be Borthwick Castle, as apart from the amazing wedding venue it is, the incredible location and setting, they also have some of the most friendly staff in Scotland which makes the day run so smoothly.

Documentary and Storytelling wedding videography
Shooting perfect candid, documentary footage can be the most difficult to get right at a wedding, but it is by far the most rewarding and I aim to do this at every single wedding I shoot. Being able to be in the exact positions at the right times comes with skill but also experience, after filming over 800 wedding videos each one helps to not only be in the right places but also to collect them with the best possible compositions.
From my 17 years of experience in shooting high-end weddings across Scotland this for me is absolutely the best way to get the most incredible footage of your day. I need to be mobile all the time to gather these special moments through the day, so while someone may be capturing a wide sliding shot of the wedding venue, I’ll be capturing that moment the bride is revealed in her dress for the first time, but composed and shot in the best way possible within the wedding film.
Scotland wedding videography
To create fantastic, unique and memorable films from your wedding in Scotland means showing what it is that makes you distinctive as a couple, I do this by not only picking out incredible shots fo your day but by capturing the unique story of each couple. For the wedding videographer this can be a difficult thing to get right as you have to balance between creating something really emotive without going into it being too contrived or cheesy!
My first memory of shooting a wedding video in Scotland came at Balbirnie House, Fife, and since then I have had the chance to film many couples across the regions and been lucky enough to be recommended by venues up and down the country.

One of my most recent memories in Scotland comes from Aberdeenshire in the amazing location of Drumtochty Castle. A lot of the time some unique story at the beginning of the day presents itself which then makes the wedding video a lot more distinctive. This wedding shoot provided just that, with the grooms party having a ridiculously fun time clay pigeon shooting in the morning!
Choosing a wedding videographer and photographer
Choosing a videographer and photographer to shoot in harmony at your wedding in Scotland is a lot more important than most people realise. Luckily as I shoot in a documentary style with nothing manufactured, I get along swimmingly with every photographer I shoot with. This is because I stay in the background at the wedding and capture shots of the day very discreetly, with guests hardly noticing I am there at all.
I have had the pleasure to work alongside some of the most talented photographers in Europe and across Scotland, so if you want any recommendations for a Scottish wedding photographer then let me know and I will be happy to help you out.
From shooting wedding videos through Scotland over the years I have been so lucky to be involved in many different cultural ceremonies and traditions from Humanist, Indian and Jewish weddings to elopments from Chinese, American and Canadian couples. Each wedding film I complete in Scotland year on year gives me more experience of how to pick out the very best shots from each day. The fun thing about it is that you never stop learning as every single shoot is different, which is what makes my job so exciting!
