Balfreish Barns is an exclusive venue located on the outskirts of the Highland capital, Inverness. Joe and Nicole asked me to cover their Balfreish Barns Wedding Photography. It was my pleasure to do so.

It’s gardens and rustic barns make it a great choice for couples who want a wedding venue that’s secluded. It’s also not too far from Inverness so handy for booking local suppliers.

Joe & Nicole’s Balfreish Barns wedding

Hi, I’m Andy Allan, a Highland wedding and elopement photographer covering Inverness and the Scottish Highlands. This blog is all about Balfreish Barns in Cawdor with photos from Joe & Nicole’s wedding in Summer 2022.

Beautiful backdrops at Balfreish Barns

We’re spoilt for choice when it comes to beautiful scenery and stunning barns here in the Highlands. As a wedding venue, Balfreish Barns has both in abundance.

I love the colours of the beautiful gardens and the natural woodland that surrounds Balfreish Barns.

This offers up multiple locations around the venue for capturing some wedding portraits.

If planning a Winter wedding or the weather isn’t great on your wedding day, there’s also the barns. There are opportunities to capture creative and unique shots here too.

Outdoor ceremonies at Balfreish

Here in the Highlands weather plays a big part in weddings and elopements. If you’re lucky enough to have the sun gods on your side then outdoor ceremonies are a must.

The Rose arches create a beautiful frame for couples whilst the staircase down onto the lawn creates the perfect wedding entrance ahead of the ceremony.

I love shooting at a Highland wedding venue with outdoor features.

Creating your bespoke wedding

Whilst there are no catering options available, this allows you to design your own wedding parties.

With Inverness so near bye, you have access to so many local suppliers. Florists, caterers and decor companies are minutes away meaning your wedding venue is shaped to suit your taste.

Creative wedding photography

A Highland, limited number venue offers intimate seclusion with the barns giving you that old and rustic vibe which reflects in your wedding photography.

The Highland barns lend themselves to creative wedding photography and the barn doors are great for some silhouette shots as well as a good vantage point at the venue for me to capture shots during dances.
