Documentary Scottish Wedding Photographer

Specialising in weddings in authentic and historic places around the world.

Hi, I’m Bernadeta.

An intimate wedding photographer in Scotland with a passion for natural wedding photography

I’ve been a documentary wedding photographer in Scotland and worldwide since 2020 and was named one of Rangefinder’s 30 Rising Stars of Wedding Photography in 2021. 

Playing with light, composition, and your special connection, I strive to capture your day in a whimsical yet elegant way. I’ve shot epic weddings in castles, chateaux, and villas across Europe and the rest of the world — all incredible locations with beautiful architecture, brought to life with fine art photography.

I’m a romantic soul and an eternal optimist, looking for the beauty in everything around me. I love exploring castles and imagining the stories hidden in their walls. I like to listen to songs with my eyes closed and take them apart in my head. 

If you’re a less traditional couple looking for incredibly luxurious, artistic wedding photos, or to be there with you for your adventure elopement, let’s work together to capture your unique love in all its intimate, natural beauty.

What inspired me to become a destination wedding photographer in Scotland?

As a non-traditional, laid-back wedding photographer, I’ve always adored venturing out into the unknown. Adventure makes my heart glow. Dramatic landscapes, long walks through the woods and over mountains, turning my collar up to the rain and the wind, exploring the world in all its weird and wonderful variety. And it’s made even sweeter when I’m hand-in-hand with the love of my life, Pawel. 

And so it was that I found my dream career in wedding photography — spending my days in awe of the amazing wedding destinations around the world and meeting love-drunk couples whose company I adore. 

So let’s adventure together into the exquisite unknown. Let’s capture your unique love for each other in all its glowing beauty.

What will it be like to have me as your laid-back Scotland wedding photographer?

Your wedding or elopement is an opportunity to tell your unique story. A story you can share with your loved ones and pass down to your children. Your photographs will transport you back to how you felt at the very moment they were taken. 

Your wedding will not be a photoshoot and there will be no posed portraits. Instead, I love to find those authentic, emotional angles that perfectly capture your love for each other. And that’s why I won’t try to engineer moments or ask you to pose. You can just be yourselves, immersed in the intimacy of the moment. We’ll let your love lead the way.

I see beauty everywhere I look, and I think you’re beautiful just as you are. That’s why my signature editing style is romantic and natural (and sometimes just a little moody)! It’s designed to highlight your natural beauty, capture every perfectly imperfect detail, utilise the natural light and compliment the beautiful settings we found ourselves in. 

I like to incorporate black-and-white photography into my portfolio because they show the emotions of the scene in a different light without disturbing by the colour.

We are so glad we chose Bernadeta to be our wedding photographer! It was a first-class service right from when we met her to scout locations to see all our wonderful photos of our magical wedding day in Glencoe.

Bernadeta captured our day perfectly and has a natural talent for photography. Anyone who was not there could watch the fantastic selection of highlights on a slideshow and feel like they were there on the day. She was not phased by the typical Scottish weather and had thought of everything from umbrellas, hand warmers and bottles of water for our hike up a hill. Plus sparklers too!

We had warned her we were both a bit camera shy and Bernadeta took this into account and gave us great guidance in order to get amazing shots. We felt so at ease with her and Pawel and that really comes across in the photos. During the ceremony, I was not even conscious of her taking photos but she had taken so many from every possible angle!

We received our photos much quicker than expected. Such a great range of photos expressing everyone’s emotions and the stunning scenery. We just love how the whole day was captured so well! Bernadeta really went above and beyond and we can’t recommend her enough.
