In April 2021 I had the pleasure of photographing an elopement at Glencoe, complete with a tipi tent for two! This was beautifully styled by Ella Mai Elopements, who also set up a sweetheart picnic table, with food that tasted as good as it looked from Platter and Pop. We had a taste of all the seasons, with rain, wind and sun, but Becca and Grant embraced the elements! These photos go to show that no matter what the weather has in store on your elopement day, it will be truly beautiful!
The ceremony was conducted by Humanist Celebrant Gary Smith. Gary has a brilliant sense of humour and adventure and is someone I've had the pleasure of working alongside many times. He introduced the couple to the traditional symbolic elements of Quaich drinking, hand fasting and oathing stones within their ceremony. The couple also exchanged personal vows.

Outfits are the couple's own
An elopement involves going away to have a small, intimate wedding, centred around the couple and their love, either alone or with under 10 guests. This makes elopements more personal, romantic, and unique than traditional weddings as the day is free from rigid structure, so you can choose to only include the elements that resonate most with you. Elopements are not a big display or performance for the benefit of other people – they are a relaxed, low pressure celebration of two people’s love, in which they legally marry with an officiant in the setting of their choice. If you're planning an elopement in Scotland or beyond, I'd loved to hear more!
