Glencoe elopement photographer.
Back in November 2018, Scotland was being battered by Storm… Dennis? Derek? Darren? Anyway, Scotland was being battered by a storm. We like to think we’re in control on a wedding day. But sometimes the weather takes things out of our hands. Steph + Andrew’s wedding on the banks of Loch Lomond was one we had looked forward to for a long time. However, stuck indoors with the rain hammering down and the dark clouds refusing to lift, it became clear that we weren’t going to be able to deliver the coverage we had hoped for. So we decided to keep the wedding vibes going a bit longer by inviting them for an adventure at Glencoe.
It was an icy-cold day in early March when we headed for the Highlands. The mountains were covered in snow and the sun pierced through a white haze of cloud. The conditions were perfect. As we ventured along the Etive road we were surrounded by a herd of deer. We simply had to jump out and say hello to these amazing and very inquisitive creatures.
As a Glencoe elopement photographer, we love how the changing seasons create new landscapes and colour palettes throughout the year. So we spent our day together exploring some of our favourite spots and found some new ones along the way. The winter conditions opened up so many opportunities in this photographer’s playground. Seeing the massive smiles on Steph + Andrew’s faces as they clambered the hills of Glen Etive was just the best.
As the fiery winter sun dropped behind the mountains and with the temperature dropping below zero, we hit the road. Rewarding ourselves with fish and chips at The Real Food Cafe (perhaps the best in Scotland!) for a job well done. We were so grateful to Steph + Andrew for getting back into their wedding attire and agreeing to our crazy idea. It was so worth it.
Glencoe, March 2019.
