A number of Highland businesses have made it to the finals of the Scottish Wedding Awards 2024.

The awards aim to celebrate the elite wedding specialists and businesses that continuously create magical moments that turn into lasting memories.

They aim to recognise and reward those within the wedding industry that work towards making the big day as perfect as possible, including the caterers that provide delicious reception meals, decorators that take care of the wedding venues and add the glam in the room or florists that know how to make any wedding flourish.

Nairn-based QS Digital Video is one of the finalists in the Wedding Videography category.

The sole proprietor of QS Digital Video, Quentin Soldan will find out if he will be crowned winner and take the trophy home at an elegant ceremony that will take place on March 6 at the Doubletree by Hilton in Glasgow.

He said: “I’ve been shortlisted for the final for five years and 2024 will be the sixth. I’ve picked up the award in 2018, 2020 and 2023 and am no less excited about the event in March in Glasgow.

"I pride myself on working on the project from start to finish; for answering a couple’s initial questions, having a pre-wedding meeting to talk through the plan of the day, shooting the day then spending three to four days ‘in post’ to produce the final movie.”
