There is something so dang epic about eloping in the rugged outdoors, being able to take in the grandest of views and explore the wilderness side-by-side with your person. If this appeals, a Scottish Highlands elopement may be the perfect thing for you and you should check out my guide to eloping in Scotland!

Often, I hear couples who have eloped say, “it was one of the best decisions we’ve made together.” They never have regrets about it. Eloping does take a lot of courage and commitment to your vision. More-so, to your marriage and the way in which you want start this chapter of your story.

So, Why Elope?

The intimacy of an elopement is completely unparalleled. You’ll say your vows quietly together or with just a select few of your most treasured people. Whether you are considering an elopement for personal reasons, family dynamics, or geographical concerns, I urge you to also consider just how special the intimacy of an elopement is. It allows for you and your partner to truly focus on each other, to connect without worrying about as many details, and you can create an experience for one another out of your wedding rather than a production for everyone else. Additionally, it enables you to choose a crazy cool location that is either meaningful to you or is some place new that you want to keep all to yourselves!

Why Elope in Scotland?

The real question is: Why not?! No seriously, this place is literally an elopement dreamland. If you are urban souls, you can choose to elope amidst the history and beauty of Edinburgh, wandering through the cobblestone streets and perhaps chancing upon an owl or two. You can choose a castle nearby to have a private ceremony, later exploring the beauty of the castle grounds and enjoying a gourmet dinner.

If you are in love with nature, a Scottish Highlands elopement gives you this feel of being remote and lost in the beauty of nature without being too far from towns with great pubs! Some of the scenery in the Highlands is the most beautiful I have ever set eyes on. From the little burns traipsing the rolling hills to the towering mountains, this is just the most magical place.

Spring Elopement in Glen Coe

This day was so beautiful, even with the crazy wind and rain. I love how Tamar laughed as her skirt billowed all around her. She and Matt made the best of the weather by staying close to each other, warming one another with a million hugs and kisses. It could not have been sweeter.

Tamar wore a two piece wedding dress from Sweet Caroline Styles and her flowers were put together by AK Weddings! I just love the bold choice of a colorful wedding dress or skirt in place of the traditional all white (or off-white). It really adds to the entire vibe of the day!

    I do agree with all the ideas you’ve presented in your post. They’re very convincing and will certainly work. Still, the posts are too short for newbies. Could you please extend them a bit from next time? Thanks for the post.
