Paula lives in the beautiful Highland village of Arisaig on the northwest coast near Mallaig and qualified in 2018 as a Marriage Officer with Fuze Ceremonies.
After conducting a number of wilderness elopements, Paula was so hooked on delivering intimate ceremonies for two in the wilds of the western Highlands that she and Trevor Wilson from Silver Photography decided to start Bog Cotton Scottish Elopements, a company specialising in bespoke adventure elopements throughout the Highlands and Islands.
Paula graduated with first class honours in English Literature and Journalism and she loves the creative element of writing and delivering wedding scripts. She firmly believes that no matter what your journey as a couple, it is a one of a kind love story and she is eager to tell the tale.
Paula is happy to travel locally and welcomes the opportunity to meet couples looking to embrace all that the western Highlands has to offer as a location, both indoor and outdoors, for personality-packed weddings with a twist!
Paula is based in Arisaig and covers Arisaig, Salen, Fort William & Glencoe. She'd be delighted to chat about your ceremony, so just get in touch.

"Paula Wilkinson was a fantastic celebrant and we cannot imagine a nicer person to have conducted our wedding ceremony. Witty, kind, compassionate. She just ‘got us’ as a couple and was able to convey this with ease. Recommend Paula 100 % for your ceremony." -Claire
"Paula was the celebrant for our wedding last weekend at Camusdarach Beach in Arisaig. She was so lovely and helpful on the lead up to the wedding, answering all of our questions and making great suggestions for the ceremony. On the day, the weather turned terrible and but Paula helped us set up the location so we could stay out of the rain. The ceremony was amazing, so beautiful and we were blown away by Paulas care and attention to detail. We felt very relaxed as she kept us calm and organised. Thank you Paula for giving us such a perfect day which we will cherish forever". -Ayden & Pete
"Paula did an excellent and so very personal humanist ceremony for us in such a beautiful spot. Prior to the wedding Paula helped us with vow suggestions, music and the ceremony itself. She did an excellent job organizing the guests in such a wild spot. It was clear Paula was enjoying events as much as we were and her steady hand through the ceremony kept our nerves in check! We have no hesitation recommending Paula and Fuze". -Gordon & Magda
