Scotland Wedding videography
Beautiful. Wild. Magical.
Scotland is a country full of history and legend. The people are warm, welcoming to tourists who want an authentic experience like no other in Scotland - not too mention all the beautiful nature that makes this country so unique! Couples planning a their wedding have plenty opportunities for breathtaking scenes here with its rich heritage from north to south across peppered landscapes where castles sit high atop craggy mountains or ancient Caledonian forests stretch out before you into infinity. Furthermore on either side peat bogs richly coloured green through fields made vibrant reds oranges whites lavender blues.
Scotland weddings are magical events - one that you'll never forget thats for sure. From the breathtaking views to delicious food and beverages, there's so much going on at these special occasions! I’ve compiled some ideas for where in Scotland to tie The knot:
You are looking for a place to have your wedding in Scotland, but you don't know where. You want it to be beautiful and memorable with all the people who mean so much importance on this special occasion. Check out my suggestions below:
The Isle Of Lewis - A dream destination fulled with incredible beaches with a wedding venue called Talla Na Mara (see my film I made there below) that has incredible views over the turquoise blue waters and locations include medieval towns & villages such as Gearrannan Blackhouse Village. Below is a teaser I made when I traveled to the stunning island.
The magical isle of Mull, with its dramatic sea cliffs and timeless traditions. A fairy-tale destination for a wedding that you will never forget! Moreover not far from its shores lies another small island called Iona which you can hope onto a 10 minute ferry ride from Fionnphort. I recently made a film here and will include the teaser for it here.
If you're looking for a place to get married, the city of Inverness should be at the top of your list. The people are warm and inviting; there's plenty going on in all areas - from shopping trips or historical tours (or both!) There is also an abundance of natural beauty which can make any wedding picturesque! Below are a few films I have made in around inverness area to give you an idea of what the city and its surrounding areas have to offer including places like Coul House Hotel, Achnagairn Estate, Strathpeffer Pavilion and the Black Isle.
Planning your Scotland Wedding
wedding planning advice
So, after searching around the web a bit to find a Scotland wedding videographer, 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 a wedding videographer in Scotland 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 a Scotland Wedding Videographer.
Scotland is a country for all seasons. Spring blooms, summer hazy light and autumn colours can be used to create beautiful images that are romantic or timelessly moody; it doesn't matter what time of year you get married! This means your wedding will never be spoilt by bad weather because I have stunning images alongside those little moments captured in between storms.
The landscape here in Scotland 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 Scotland Wedding Videographers capture the little moments that you will treasure forever.
Why I'm a Scotland Wedding Videographer
"I am inspired by people and events happening all around me"
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 smile during the first look. To feel the warmth of a newlywed hand during your ceremony. 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 elopement in the rural landscapes of Skye, 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.

Budgeting for a wedding videographer is an important 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 in Scotland is one of the most important aspects to capturing your big day. (Yes I am slightly biased here!) I offer 3 all-day packages for competitive prices that will suit even those on a tighter budget. Prices start from £1500.
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 am able to capture everything! Please refer to my Wedding Videography Packages page for more information.

Why couples book me for their wedding videography
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!
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. 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 an heirloom from one committed couple celebrating their love with friends & family by their side.
Regardless of the scenery of your wedding day, it is 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 lifestyle and cinematic shots 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.
I have had the pleasure of filming weddings throughout Scotland and the UK 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 with loads of examples of weddings I have shot and wedding planning advice, along with my wedding videography packages and pricing so you can learn what you will receive when you make an investment with me to capture your day!

Wedding Photographer in Scotland
here I'd like to recommend a few wedding photographers in Scotland 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.
I had the pleasure of working with Sam on a couple of weddings now and each time has been unique and a good laugh. Our styles sync up nicely ensuring we both capture what we need to deliver. Working with Ezra Studios in the Outer Hebrides and in the city of Glasgow the possibilities for us to capture your day seamlessly is endless!

I had the pleasure of working alongside Lena and Patrick whilst filming Claire and Ali's wedding at the breathtaking venue at Trump Turnberry in Ayrshire. With her warm tones in her photos and her creative ideas we both made sure we made use of every second we had with the couple to create compelling images. Her work ethic and creative ideas ensure we work together very well.
Derek is one of the nicest photographers I've ever had the pleasure to shoot along side with. When I discovered we both shoot on Sony cameras I just knew we'd get along nicely. Derek's work is simply phenomenal. His attention to detail and just knowing all the right spots at the venue to get the best dramatic image is just so comforting. You wont go wrong with Derek!
Kev and I go back to the beginning of my career. We instantly clicked when working together and our styles matched so well it felt like we had been working together for ages. Kevin's ability to make the couple laugh and create emotive scenes in so easy and professional.
