The Perfect Elopement Wedding at Glen Etive - A James Bond Filming Location

Towards the end of the season, I had the pleasure of photographing Harriet and Matthew at the stunning Glen Etive. Located in the Scottish Highlands, this spot is known for its breathtaking views, waterfalls, and even the chance to spot some deer. It gained popularity as a filming location for the James Bond movie, Skyfall. If you're seeking a picturesque location for your elopement wedding, Glen Etive can't be beat.

Magical Pictures in the Glencoe Valley

Another magical location on my list of top wedding venues in Scotland is the Glencoe Valley. Recognizable to many, the Glencoe Valley, and specifically the observation deck for the Three Sisters, offers stunning views. It was here that I had the pleasure of photographing a couple who traveled all the way from North Carolina for their Glencoe Valley photo shoot. The valley is also home to a white house that has been featured on many Scottish postcards. Click here to see more.
