Inverness Wedding videographer
Inverness Wedding Videographer, creating films with feeling
Hi there, my name is Michael. I am a creative and award-winning wedding videographer capturing weddings throughout Scotland and the UK. I love everything about weddings, the people, the magical moments, the joy and laughter. Please take a look at my portfolio and get in touch if you would like to have a chat. I’d love to hear your wedding plans and see if we are the right fit for each other.
“There’s no better feeling than delivering the final Wedding film to a couple and them seeing moments they never knew happened!”
As an Inverness Wedding Videographer, I travel around the whole country.
Here’s what I love the most about the Highlands
I always think Inverness-shire is a very historic county. Its Scotland’s largest county but with the smallest population ranging from the Outer Hebrides, think Stornoway and Harris, moving through to the stunning isle of Skye which, makes the perfect place to say your vows and have your lovely bride and groom moments. Couples find amazing sites to pose their romantic clicks and make them magical. Such memories will add a huge impact to your overall wedding experience. The places like Achnagairn Estate, a 17th-century five-star exclusive-use estate with the perfect fairytale setting and ultimate indulgence for dream weddings, corporate retreats, and amazing parties capture the attention of many. The Black Isle, on the other hand, has an impressive environment with vasts amounts of farm land where it is common for weddings to happen in big Marquees and barns transformed into beautiful venues to have your ceremony. The roads of Cromarty Town with their grand old merchant houses and cute wee fishermen’s cottages are a treat to experience.
Strathpeffer Pavilion is a 19th century wonder turned in to a fabulous hotel for visitors and offer many jaw-dropping concerts, performances and other events. The building has its all original Victorian splendour, with the addition of requisite modern facilities. It also has some nice forestry grounds which is perfect for those creative couple shoots!
Loch Ness Country House Hotel is a breezy place with a view of a stunning river and with the luxury of exclusive facilities. It has some amazing gardens which will pair well with family portraits and also the creative couple shoot. Lastly a very cute dog will greet you upon your arrival.
Coul House Hotel is simply incredible with the abundance of facilities, luxury spa, fairy theme wedding court and packages to ensure the quality of your event is best. Coupled with incredible surroundings, making incredible views easily accessible.
Here are some Wedding video Teasers I have produced at a few of the wedding venues mentioned above.

So, after searching around the web a bit to find an Inverness wedding videographer near to you, you’ve typed Inverness wedding videographer then you’ve stumbled upon this page! I hope after reading through this page that I can help you decide to make the right choice for your wedding.
One of many things I love about being an Inverness wedding videographer is just how breathtaking the scenery is and how magical the venues are. I’ve filmed all sorts of weddings all over Scotland. I’ve seen couples get married on beaches, in ancient castles with incredible backdrops, in classy hotels, in barns, in pretty churches and gardens. I feel very fortunate to be an Inverness Wedding Videographer.
For a wedding, any time of year is just right. That’s why you should choose Inverness-shire as the place for your big event! From summertime love stories to winter wonderlands and everything in between; this county has something that will suit every mood – and budget too (believe me when I say there are plenty).
The landscape here in Inverness isn’t just amazing during one certain period-it looks great every day thanks to its rich beauty which lasts throughout each season’s offerings (even winter!). All of this helps us Inverness Wedding Videographers capture the little moments that you will treasure forever.
Why I’m an Inverness Wedding Videographer
I always wanted to make films about people and places and when I heard an emotional bride’s mother say “The most beautiful things in life are not things; they’re people and memories” she inspired me with her words of wisdom and so I wanted my work to have the same emotional impact as her words did to me.
To see your father’s proud emotional smile during the first look. To hold your special partner in the air for the first dance. These moments are priceless, something to be cherished for generations to come. Through film you will never forget your story. When you pledged yourselves to one another before family and friends, seeing your family loved ones in motion and reliving the love shining through every glance and touch is ever priceless.
Whether you’re looking for something classic, modern or somewhere outside of society’s norms – I’ve got it covered! From city hotels to country manors and even in between; whether your event is an intimate wedding in the rural landscapes of Inverness, or a castle wedding of 100 plus guests – Michael Westcott Films is here to help create cinema quality films that capture every moment with precision enabling you to see those tender moments only film can produce.

Why couples book me for their wedding videography
I have had the pleasure of filming weddings throughout Inverness and Scotland for some truly amazing couples and all have loved the personal service, dedication and energy I provide to each and every one of them both before, during and after their wedding day. Check out the links below where you can see more of my style and approach, my wedding blog has a few examples of weddings I have shot. It also has wedding planning advice from previous brides. Please do check out My wedding videography packages so you can learn what you will receive when you make an investment with me to capture your day!
Regardless of the scenery of your wedding day, Inverness has it all for a visually striking display. The tears, laughter and special moments that swell with emotion are all beautifully captured through the lens of my camera. Working closely with he photographer I enjoy the challenge of finding the best light for each scene and I always aim for my style to be a kinematic and story driven approach rather than posed studio portraits. From dramatic seaside weddings or intimate country club ceremonies you can be sure that every detail will come out looking breathtaking.
If you don’t like being the centre of attention then you’re in luck! My filmmaking is done in a quiet and delicate way. Rather than using flashy equipment that would draw attention to myself as “the video guy” I prefer to work quietly with minimal cameras and focus on how each frame tells your own story.
If you seek me out on the day, I will usually be found in perfecting my stealthy videography skills. You may also find me quickly munching on a canapé which is one of my attempts to blend in with your guests… and because I get hungry after a busy morning.
Yet, please don’t worry – sometimes people mistake me for one of their wedding guests with an amazing camera so they won’t notice when I capture them being natural and just simply enjoying themselves. This allows me to capture the real moments you see in my wedding films above. You deserve to remember your wedding day in every detail, so you can hold on to this perfect moment forever. Your film will be a keepsake that you’ll treasure for years and pass down through generations as a heirloom from one committed couple celebrating their love with friends & family by their side.
How much does Wedding Videography in Inverness Cost?
at the end of the day it all comes down to your budget.
Budgeting for a wedding videographer is an essential step in wedding planning. In order to figure out how much you can spend, it’s essential that before making your decision on who will capture your day that what style of videography do you prefer?
I would recommend looking through portfolios from several different wedding videographers until one catches your eye as “the perfect fit.” Then work towards figuring out just exactly where their pricing falls within your own budget.
I know from my experience that wedding videography is one of the most important aspects of capturing your big day. (Yes, I am slightly biased here!) Moreover, I offer three all-day packages for competitive prices that will suit even those on a tighter budget. My prices start from £2000.
Additionally, all my packages include drone footage (where permitted) which you often have to pay extra for. I am also there all day so that I can capture everything! Please refer to my Wedding Videography Packages page for more information.
““From start to finish working with Mikey has been an absolute pleasure. Nothing has ever been too much bother and he went above and beyond to ensure our wedding day was captured the way that we wanted. He really took time to get to know us and was brilliant at staying in contact. The results are incredible, we have both been blown away at how Mikey manages to put the footage together in a way that flows so well – we have seen previous work from Mikey and knew that was the style we wanted but for us it was so special to see that it was still so unique. Mikey makes sure everything is in fitting with the style of your wedding and doesn’t use a one size fits all method. So delighted and we have live footage of our nearest and dearest to treasure for a lifetime, something you can’t put a price on”

“Michael is a creative genius and we are absolutely delighted with the end product from him filming out wedding. Our journey started with Michael when we met him filming my best friends wedding. He was a lovely presence to be around on the wedding day and in no way over powering like other photographers/videographers. He fitted into the day well and even after the day many people were very complementary of him. After loving the footage he captured from that day we asked him to be part of our own day. Michael was actually the very first thing we secured after getting engaged and we knew how popular he was. From day 1 communication was excellent with responses coming in within 24 hours if not sooner. Even when face with covid and we had to change out date Michael was very accommodating. We had to change some suppliers with a change of date but Michael filming out day was the one thing we didn’t want to lose. We could not be more happy with our wedding video. We had a small wedding and questioned whether we should get a videographer…if you are in a similar situation the answer is always yes you should. Please take time to watch some of Michael’s video’s they really are something very special. Thank you again.”

“Michael – where do we even begin. Thank you so much for giving us not only a trailer, a highlights film but a full drive of speeches, ceremony, footage of our special day. These will be rewatched for years to come because we love them so much! Not only are you fab at what you do, your presence on the day was lovely. Such a nice genuine guy who we felt so comfortable with. If you do one thing for your wedding, book Michael! Thanks again.”
AMY + STEVE
“Choosing a videographer/photographer is honestly one of the most important decisions you can make when planning your wedding. These people are around all day so you have to like them and they have to have a positive influence on your day. Once the day is over it’s a complete blur – all you are left with is the video/photos of your day. Choose wisely – choose Michael Westcott Films! Michael is a genuinely lovely guy, who really cares and his attention to detail is second to none. He was also great with our two girls! Our Wedding Highlights video is perfection. It picks up every special moment in our day in such an amazing way. It brings the day back to life. Having this video to share with family and friends today (especially with a small wedding due to covid) and for future generations to look back on – it is more than we could have hoped for. Michael also gave us full videos of the Ceremony and the Speeches that were also creatively put together. We can’t wait to welcome Michael back for a proper highland Ceilidh! Thanks Michael, Mr and Mrs Peterkin”

Here I’d like to recommend a few wedding photographers in Inverness I work really well with below:
I always look forward to a wedding when John Paul from Abrightside is the photographer! We work seamlessly together with our styles matching perfectly. JP’s ability to make people laugh and enjoy having their photos taken makes my job so much easy when capturing all the natural moments that he creates. we are also big star wars fans so you may over hear us discussing the latest episode.

What can I say about Michael, he is just simply amazing! Not only do we get on, have a laugh and our styles match, we bounce off each other creatively allowing us to capture the raw emotions of your day. He’s also very fond of showing you his incredible photography on the back of his camera once he’s taken it which gives you a small preview of excitement! You may also see him encouraging the crowd to get up off their feet and dance.
Andy Taylor Photography
I recently met and worked with Andy on a wedding in Fort William in 2022. I was at my car preparing the drone and he came over and as soon as we spoke we got on immediately. Our work styles match which allowed us to keep the couple at ease and capture some amazing shots. You wont go wrong booking Andy for your wedding day.
