A Moody & Intimate Elopement In Scotland

An Intimate Glencoe Elopement

A wedding story by Bernadeta Kupiec

“A sunset Glencoe elopement in May? Yes, why not? Lucy and Ian love the great outdoors, hiking, and running. Therefore, they chose an elopement over a traditional wedding. As a result, they were surrounded only by the immediate family that might have come that day.

Glencoe – A place to fall in love with

They fell in love with Glencoe on one of their trips. They had two dreams, not counting the element outside. In the background, there had to be Buachaille Etive Mòr (the place had to be easily accessible and flat enough) and the couple photoshoot at sunset.
On Monday after Easter, we met a month before their elopement in Glencoe to scout some locations. The original plan was for a different spot for the ceremony. However, e had to change this plan several days before elopement.”

Ceremony & Champagne

“We checked the weather several times for Lucy and Iain’s Glencoe elopement. But as it took place in Scotland, you must be prepared for all weather conditions. So we took umbrellas just in case. They came in handy—a lot.

After the ceremony, Lucy and Ian had champagne in their room. In the original plan, the champagne was supposed to be drunk outside right after the ceremony. But, unfortunately, the rain changed their plans a bit. So, they went to the Kingshouse Hotel restaurant for a meal with their families.”

Sunset Couple Photoshoot

“Lucy and Iain dreamed about a sunset photoshoot. We took a walk along the path between Glencoe Valley. They both wore running shoes. Did I mention that they both love to run? The running shoes were part of their little sunset adventure.”
