Wedding Planning Services in the Scottish Highlands

Your Romantic Adventure in Scotland Starts Here

Wedding planning in the heart of Scotland

You know that you want to plan a wedding celebration that is unforgettable for you and your loved ones. A warm and personal atmosphere that feels so totally you, a ceremony that doesn’t leave a dry eye in the house, and a party that knocks your socks off. Let’s start making it happen!

The first thing to note here is that Scotland is not bound by the same restrictions as England in terms of where you can legally marry. Welcome to a whole new world of flexibility! You want to say your vows on a boat in the middle of a loch? Done. Want a beautifully personalised handfasting ceremony on a wild and remote mountain peak? We can do it. Dreaming of a blessing and ceremony among centuries’ old pine forest?

It’s yours.

It’s my job to help you navigate the amazing amount of choice that a wedding in the Cairngorms can give you, keeping the excitement from tipping over into overwhelm.

My destination wedding planning services are tailored to couples planning a Highland wedding from a distance – I’ll be your local guide and will make sure everything comes together beautifully, so you can avoid the stress and the faff of shuttling backwards and forwards. I’m in your corner, and your best interests are always top of my list. As such, I don’t ever accept commissions from suppliers and vendors, and any potential discounts are always passed directly to you.

My wedding planning services are as perfect for intimate escapes as they are to grand getaways with all your friends and loved ones, so read on and find out more about how we can work together to bring your wedding to life.

For elopements and micro weddings of five guests or fewer, please contact me for a bespoke quote.
