YOU CAN'T STOP LOVE - In recent days, some of our Europe photographer vendors have expressed their desire to accommodate couples who don’t want to wait to be married and are rushing the ceremony.
Many brides and grooms around the globe are planning to elope and deciding to reschedule their original ideas for a big event because of current wedding size restrictions, social distancing, and mask requirements. They are getting wed on a whim, but dispensing with or postponing all else.
The WPJA has an abundance of top-ranked, documentary-style elopement photographers who are available right now who understand that some weddings can’t wait. Find yours today!
Elopement Photographers for Small United Kingdom Weddings
Shooting an elopement or small Scotland wedding event is a wedding photojournalist’s dream: a fairly open schedule with lots of breathing space for creativity – it’s just the photographer, the couple, the officiant, and perhaps a few select companions.
Members are ready to document any DIY - do it yourself, mini, fast, or elopement wedding, even if it is a Monday-Thursday ceremony. Search for the “Can Shoot Weddings on Short Notice!” message on the listings below.
We are anxious to create a picture story chronicling your romantic, casual, outdoor, small wedding from beginning to end. In this sense, it is no different from any other event that we have covered.

I specialise in elopements and tiny weddings and most of my clients come from overseas to have their destination wedding on the Isle of Skye or the nearby iconic Eilean Donan Castle. I've been photographing weddings for 12 years and I love it. What can be better than photographing couples in love, in the incredible Scottish landscape! I want to show the emotional connection between the couple, as well as their connection with the dramatic landscape and I am good at putting people at ease so they relax in front of the camera. I live with my husband in a tiny village next to the Isle of Skye. We also have chickens, pigs, and sheep and live beside the sea. [Scotland Wedding Photographer]
Welcome to Catching the Moments Photography. My name is Lukas. I describe my style in three words I would say natural, relaxed and unobtrusive. Candid moments, real emotions and reactions, tiny details you've planned for months, atmosphere, love, laughter and tears. I aim to record your wedding day as it happens, without posing or arranging anything, and most importantly without getting in your way. I believe every wedding is unique and should be treated that way. The thing is, the photos are about the day, not the other way around. Your wedding day, without directing or influencing the events. I won’t boss you around lining up for endless group shots. Instead, I will let you enjoy your wedding day with your friends and family. I won’t get in the way or tell you what to do. Instead, I will discreetly accompany you throughout the day. If that sounds like something you’re after, then you’ve come to the right place. COVERING WEDDINGS THROUGHOUT THE UK AND ABROAD Each year I shoot weddings all over Scotland and the rest of the UK, including Edinburgh, Glasgow, Perth, St Andrews, Aberdeen, the North of England and London, to name just a few. I'm also available for destination weddings. [Edinburgh Wedding Photographer]
I'm now in my 10th year shooting weddings which makes it about 400 weddings in total...phew! So I guess I must be classed as fairly experienced at what I do...I hope so, at least, LOL. I'm originally from London but have lived here in Scotland for 18 years now, so please bear with my Scottish banter in a Cockney twang! I would also very much like to shoot your wedding day! [Stirlingshire Wedding Photographer]
I am a documentary wedding photographer covering Central Scotland and further afield. Home is in the gorgeous village of Gartmore in the Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park where I live with my wife and two kids. I have worked as a photojournalist all my working life. From Journalism college in Sheffield through local news in the Midlands to working for the Times in London and then Scotland. My camera has taken me to a lot of places and pointed at a lot of faces! From James Brown to Gordon Brown … and all points in between. I now split my time between photographing weddings and working for a variety of Corporate and Commercial clients. [Stirlingshire Wedding Photographer]
Hi, I'm Loïc Bourniquel from the south of France. I've been a wedding photographer for 5 years. I did communication studies then I started to travel the world: England, Slovakia, Poland, and Canada. I used to have different jobs in each country in order to make friends and understand the way of life in each place. For most, I discovered photography during my travels so I started exploring this side of my creativity. Then I moved back to the south of France and became a manager in an Irish pub for 8 years. It was a great experience as well, organize concerts, and different kinds of events, meet people, create a good atmosphere with the staff and our clients ... After that I wanted to make my passion a job, so I became a pro photographer. In the beginning, I wasn't really interested in the wedding because of the traditional images I had in my mind, but I tried and I found a totally different experience than I expected. A much better one. Photographing emotions, funny moment,s or strong ones. Photographing humanity with total freedom and make great and original pictures was a total privilege. Now I m a wedding photographer but I do a bit of portraits and street photography for myself. I would say that my style is photojournalist/storyteller. But I still do a few nice portraits for couples. I m not only a photographer I'm also a wedding helper. I always do my best for the couples to make sure they have a great and memorable wedding. I capture relationships, small and big moments, emotions, love, and everything I find interesting. I have a lot of wittiness I love funny moment or scene. Hope I'll meet you soon Regards Loïc [Albi Wedding Photographer]
I've been a full-time photographer for over 6 years now. Photographing people being people is the best thing ever and I know I'll still be doing it long after I've photographed my last wedding. I'm married to my best friend, Róisín. Somehow she gets me and I'm lucky I have her. We live in Belfast with our two kids, Dáithí and Isla, in an old townhouse that's got bags of charm (and NO space). The kids are everything to us. On weekends off, we fuel-up with coffee and take them out adventuring. [Belfast Wedding Photographer]
Hi, I am Janina… the one behind the camera… you might want to know me a little bit before you invite me to photograph your big day! I am a proud Mummy of two amazing children Michael and Grace. Those two keep me very fit! I have been married to my best friend John since 2010. Family means everything to me and we love spending time together hiking, travelling and camping. I am a morning person and often I will get up at 5 am just to enjoy good coffee and early morning is the perfect time to do that. I love an outdoor lifestyle! Long walks and campfires are right up my street! I love animals, Freeman-our dog is a huge part of our family! I’ve grown up in a home where all forms of art were greatly appreciated. My Grandma still owns an art gallery. Photography has always been my hobby and passion! I speak Italian and Polish thanks to my family's bloodlines! I like pizza, cheese, gin, pizza, cheese, pizza (did I mention that I like pizza?) I also like holidays, driving, reading and obviously I love PHOTOGRAPHY! A good night out with friends is a must now and again! I love travelling and meeting new people. I also always find time to go to the theatre to see a good show. My music choices are all over place….from Nirvana, The Beatles and ACDC(thanks to my dad) to Little Mix Olly Murs and Rita Ora. Funny I know! Something weird about me – I don’t like chocolate! [Lancashire Wedding Photographer]

The story it is happening before his camera and he is there, ready to take immortal memories from different perspectives and angles capturing the most precious moments. He memorizes the wedding in journalistic style with a touch of creativity. [Ljubljana Wedding Photographer]
I have been taking photographs for most of my life. I have a passion for capturing what is happening around me, with no intervention or interruption, and I love a good wedding. I've been a full-time wedding photographer since 2006 and have been fortunate to attend many hundreds of weddings in every corner, and almost every county, of the UK. My work has been recognised repeatedly by the WPJA and other organisations, and I have one of the largest running totals of award-winning images in the UK. I like to immerse myself in your wedding, there from the preparations until the party is in full swing, and all I ask is that you and your guests forget about the photography and enjoy the day to the fullest. Your reward will be a thorough record of the events and emotions of the whole day. The REAL story of your wedding. Based in Derbyshire with my wife and two kids, I shoot weddings all over the UK and worldwide. [Derbyshire Wedding Photographer]
I'm a Devon based multi-award-winning photographer shooting wherever needed for the right couple. If what I do suits you I can be there if you want me. My approach is people-centric - the wedding is all about the people, and the celebration for me. At the end of the day, my intention is to create a record for you, a description of what the day felt like from the inside. The pictures should be a reflection of who you are so that when you (or your kids in years to come) look at them you see yourself at your wedding, not some cutout couple at a generic wedding that looks like something straight out of a bridal blog. [Devon Wedding Photographer]
I believe in providing a visual family legacy. On your wedding day, I become part of your family, one of your friends. Therefore, your story is truly told through the eyes of a friend, not a stranger. Photography at your wedding isn’t about hours of posing for photos, it’s about enjoying one of the most important days of your life with the people that matter most to you. Family. Friends. By welcoming me into your world, I am able to capture all the emotions of the day – the serious, the silly and the poetic. It is my passion as a photographer to have your wedding photos depict the relationship between you and the people you love. We become who we are through our family and friends. Your photos will communicate who they are and the bond you have with each of them. As an artist, how I see and feel during your wedding is a reflection of my own family legacy. My father, Jack, was a powerful man, in mind, body, and spirit. He taught me to listen, to be loyal, to be respectful, to always be prepared, to be charitable, and to always work hard. My mother, Sylvia, was vibrant, funny, outgoing, and generous. She gave me the confidence to be myself. In the past few years I have lost both of my parents. I miss them very much. A friend recently told me, “Tracey, on a wedding day, you are the best of both your parents. You work your tail off and you’re the couple’s best friend.” In Interlaken, Switzerland, on June 9, 2008, I married the love of my life, my rock, Pete. The way I feel when Pete looks at me is what I aspire to capture for my couples. He is thoughtful, funny, understanding, and truly my best friend. Pete is the only man, other than my father, who has loved me unconditionally. He is simply amazing. We have two rescue dogs, Roxy and Cassidy and our shelter kitty Reece. I love our little family and we couldn’t be happier! I want to get to you know you, your fiancé and your families. I want to know what matters to you most. I want to be your photographer — and on your wedding day, a member of your family. [Saratoga Springs Wedding Photographer]
I haven't known much else in life except photographing weddings for a living, I have had a camera glued to my hand since I was a kid and shot my first wedding when I was only 14 years old, fast forward the clock 16 years and over 700 weddings later and I am more passionate than ever about capturing epic moments from your wedding day as I continue my journey to being the best photographer, husband, and dad I can possibly be. Wedding photography has been my full-time profession and it’s incredibly rewarding delivering images to my clients that they will cherish forever. I love to work in the most creative way I can capture moments that display the beauty and evoke emotion. For me, wedding photography is such a personal thing and I love having the opportunity to build that rapport with my couples for them to feel relaxed on their wedding day. Which is why I like to meet my couples when possible and build up a relationship long before the big day. [County Antrim Wedding Photographer]
I love photographing people's stories; the real and the honest. Capturing life in all its glory is what photography is all about for me. We all have our own unique lives and being able to catch a glimpse of that - especially on a day as important as your wedding day - is one of the many wonderful things about what I do. I studied Media at university with a view to working in film. Movies are all about stories and that appealed to me. I never did break into the industry though; something far more magical caught my eye. Many of the skills and techniques I learned in film have been transferred into my wedding reportage work, and I like to think that my imagery has a certain cinematic feel to it. One of my friends got married straight out of university, and they asked me to shoot their wedding because they loved my movie work so much. I was familiar with stills photography as my father had always been a keen amateur, so I gave it a go and I fell in love. That was back in 2004, and since then I have fallen in love with wedding photography again and again. I love to travel and I'm happy to travel anywhere in the world to shoot a wedding.

Hi Erika. Now that the dust has settled, I wanted to take the time to write to you and thank you for the enormous role you played on our wedding day. Words don’t seem to quite cover how we feel, but I will give it a go! We weren’t sure what to expect when booking a photographer- we both hated the idea of having a camera shoved in our face all day, posing and saying cheese. As you know, this is why we chose you and felt confident with your refreshing view to photography after we met for the first time. On the day, you were totally true to your word. You managed to capture it all, with great professionalism but unobtrusively. But for me personally, I want to say that I am so grateful for the support you showed me throughout. You kept me calm and helped me get the most from the day. I know, from the few images you showed us on the day, that I will (for once in my life!) like pictures of myself because you have captured our personality more than just how we look. Erika- quite honestly, you were a guest at our wedding first and photographer second. You were a fantastic asset to us and everything you did to look after us both during the day was so greatly appreciated. Thank you so very much. Our family and friends commented on you lots also and they totally echo our sentiments. So yeah....I think it’s important to say all these things to you, because yes- we have paid for a service. But what we got in return was an amazing extra wedding guest, a great friend and a fantastic support. Thank you
