Wedding Photographer Venue Wish list!

I’ve been so lucky in almost a decade of shooting weddings to visit some amazing venues including so many castles in Scotland I didn’t even know existed!  There are a few I still haven’t visited yet (or have only been once) that I would love to booked for so I’ve made a wish list and to hopefully couples getting married at these venues.  So if you are getting married at any of these and you like my work, please get in touch!

That is my local wishlist but I’d also love to shoot a wedding in Gozo or Malta where I go on holiday every year so if you are marrying there, get in touch and make my dreams come true!
