Our final wedding story of 2017 was a special one. Just 3 days before Christmas, we spent the day with Jane + Aaron who had travelled all the way from Australia to elope in the Scottish Highlands.
A thick layer of mist covered much of the area when we arrived that morning, clearing just in time to ensure that this sweet couple would have a ceremony with a view. The idyllic setting of Glencoe House, with its stunning views across Loch Leven, helped create a sense of total serenity as Jane + Aaron made their final preparations before becoming husband and wife.
After a short but very sweet ceremony, we took our newlyweds for an adventure in this awe-inspiring part of the country. The returning mist seemed to follow us as we ventured along the winding Glen Etive road, caressing the rolling hills before descending onto the road itself. One of our favourite things about photographing elopements in Glencoe and the Scottish Highlands is the way that places you may have visited countless times can transform so dramatically – one of the few good things about our unpredictable Scottish weather.
As the sun went down, briefly burning its way through the mountains and mist, we captured some final beautiful, intimate moments with Jane + Aaron. By now, these troopers had soaked up everything the elements could throw at them, so we decided to deliver them back to the warmth of Glencoe House and say our goodbyes. We can’t thank these guys enough for allowing us to be part of their special day, and for braving the Scottish Winter with a smile on their faces! It was the perfect way to wrap up an incredible year.
