The Sassenachs is a wedding photography business based in Edinburgh, Lothian & Borders.

We're Jodie and Matt - Scotland Elopement & Wedding Photographers. As 'Sassenachs' ourselves, we fell hopelessly in love with the wild beauty of Scotland and packed up our lives for a move to The Highlands. For more than 10 years now, we've been capturing unique love stories all over Scotland in photograph and film.

Please note that we do not offer "packages". We tailor every single quotation we get. After all, you and your wedding are unique, so your package should be, too, right? So we always speak to every client before giving a quote.

A little bit about why we love hopping on a call with you two right off the bat - we want to make sure your elopement or wedding day is going to be SO MUCH FUN and that we all feel like old friends by the time we鈥檙e actually meeting up on the big day! Developing a friendship with our couples is incredibly important to us and a big part of how we all create beautiful photos and videos together. We鈥檇 love to hear about you two, your story, how you met, and what you love to do together, share a bit about us, and of course, answer any questions you have and talk about all your plans!

So why "The Sassenachs"

Sassenach n sas-uh-nak
A centuries-old word from the Highlands of Scotland to refer to non-Gaelic speakers from
England and the Lowlands, a Sassenach was a non-native or Outlander who spoke English.

We approach all of our elopements and weddings in the same way and try to be a relaxing, calming presence on the day. Our approach to weddings is always appreciated by our clients. The only drama allowed comes from the towering mountains, majestic lochs, enchanting forests, breathtaking seascapes or ancient city skylines. Your day, your way.

We provide couples from all over the world with amazing imagery but also the experience of a lifetime when they choose to get married in Scotland. We believe that it is this that sets us apart - we want you to not only come away with amazing imagery but to have had the best time imaginable on a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Your elopement can be what you want it to be - from a relaxed day on the beach to a pony-trekking adventure through the mountains and anything in between.

Your elopement photos and film are a time machine that will take you back to relive your day. They are also the only part of your elopement day that will increase in value as you grow older. They will take on new meaning with every passing year and will be a window into the past for future generations.

Have a day that is free from stress and hassle where the only drama allowed comes from towering mountains, majestic lochs, enchanting forests, breathtaking seascapes or ancient city skylines. Your day, your way.
