All-Inclusive Elopements in the shetland islands

At 60° North, sits a small scattering of emerald islands; an oasis of land in the gunmetal sea. 

Escape to a place where the rugged meets the pure. 

Where love is lawless, and romance wild. 

Where waves tumble and crash, and sea spray fills the air. 

The first and only All-Inclusive Elopement Package available in Shetland

Over a hundred miles from Scotland - and much the same from Norway - simply getting here is an adventure. And here, in this wild, beautiful location - free from expectation, from pressure, from everything - you can dedicate yourselves to each other away from the world. 

The all-inclusive Shetland elopement package brings together the very best of Shetland’s wedding vendors. From wildly talented local suppliers, to cosy hidden-gem stays…and all under one point of contact - me! 

The untamed beauty of the islands, the intimacy, the unparalleled solitude…here you can focus solely on each other. And with my help, experience an adventure you’ll never forget. 

An elopement in Shetland is an experience unlike any other. 

The advantage of having two photographers on the day, quite simply, is that we can be in two places at once. Different perspectives, angles, lenses; different strengths, personalities and different locations on the same day. It means more photos, more fun, more of an insight into your celebration. The second shooter is an associate of my choosing, based on experience, style, compatibility and availability.  Available as an additional service for all packages.

Second photographer

"Having a second shooter helping Susan on the day and knowing that she wasn't going to leave me and miss any special moments, but that the boys would also be getting some amazing photos of their own, really helped to put my mind at ease."

A pre-wedding session not only helps you relax on your wedding day, but gives you a trial run working with me, not to mention a whole gallery of gorgeous images to look back on. You'll discover how I prompt, not pose. You'll really just have fun and photos to prove it. The pre-wedding session is available to add on to all packages.

Pre-wedding session

"Our pre wedding shoot was amazing! Not only did it give us some AMAZING pictures of the two of us, it was also a great chance to begin to feel comfortable in front of the camera and get to know Susan better before the big day."

Your wedding memories deserve to be held in your hands in a tangible album. Yes, online is wonderful and accessible, but nothing beats a real photo album. With 9 colours of velvet cover to choose from, you also have the option of 10 to 50 double spreads. I will design the album for you and once you approve the online proof, you'll receive your album in the post once it's ready.

Velvet Album

"The velvet album we got from Susan is out of this world. I've never seen pages like it - such high quality and not flimsy at all. I'm comfortable handing it over to guests and children to look through as I know it can handle it. It's soft cover is amazing too. A real joy to relive our wedding day. it somehow makes the photos even better!"

Remove the pressure, and choose to have a day that is unique to you. A day that focuses on your story, where you can commit to each other in a wild, beautiful location. Choosing the All-Inclusive Shetland Elopement gives you the freedom to enjoy every moment of your elopement and gives you the flexibility to choose the elements of your package to make it uniquely your own.

Why choose all-inclusive?

Each of my Shetland elopements is created bespoke for each couple. Tailored uniquely to you; built around the experience you want. 

It all starts with conversation. We’ll chat, we’ll get to know each other, we’ll bounce ideas back and forth. And with all my creativity, local contacts, and knowledge of the islands, we’ll build you an experience you couldn’t get anywhere else. 

And when you arrive, every last detail will be taken care of, just as we planned it.

So you can relax. And - with the occasional hushed “oh wow” - immerse yourselves in each moment, and experience the untamed romance of the islands, just the two of you. 

An elopement experience tailored to you. All you have to do is arrive.

"Our photographs are warm and uplifting and completely capture our wedding a way I thought I could only dream of."

"I'm truly inspired by her wonderful work. What I particularly love is how she captures the light and moments. Susan is very professional but fun and relaxed to work with."

I'm truly inspired by her wonderful work.


“Susan took both formal and natural shots at our wedding with great skill. She has an incredible knack for capturing moments filled with joy and laughter, be those between us as a couple and with our children, or amongst our guests. This is in part due to her friendly and relaxed manner which meant she put everyone at ease, and her intuitive sense of the moments to capture.”

“The work Susan does appears so effortless, but we understand just how much talent, time and effort goes into the whole process, and for that we are so grateful. We could not have picked a better wedding photographer.”

We could not have picked a better wedding photographer.


"I think there’s always a concern before meeting your photographer, because you’re not sure if they’ll really understand how you want your day to go. I can assure you that Susan showed us very early on that she could see our wedding unfolding exactly how we wanted it to."
