1970s Inspired Glencoe Elopement in a Recording Studio

After having a huge festival style barn wedding planned last year, Jenny and Ryan decided after a few failed attempts to just elope to Glencoe with just the bride’s mum and sister present.

Their day was held at St Mary’s, a former chapel now turned recording studio and wedding space that oozes eclectic, bohemian style. Set overlooking a dreamy river and unreal mountains. “We feel like we planned so many forms  of a wedding that this seemed so easy and relaxed in comparison,” the bride told us. “We wanted to make all the choices we did not have the opportunity to had we had a big wedding, and make it about all the things we loved. I guess you could say the inspiration was us.”

Wild & Romantic Scottish Highlands Elopement Inspo

If there’s one place in the UK the springs to mind when it comes to when you think of running away to elope, the Scottish Highlands is it! Photographer Charlotte Kinsella was inspired by the beautiful Glencoe area while putting together this elopement shoot with gorgeous real-life couple Danielle and Jeremy.

“I also wanted small business and sustainability to be at the heart of it,” Charlotte told us. “I also wanted to create something super wild and romantic all while tapping into my obsession with high fashion and an editorial style. When I came across Coop Couture in my search for a dress, I completely fell in love! Her silk dresses are knitted by hand (by the woman herself, Gracie Cooper) and if the bride so wishes, can be entirely unravelled and reconstructed into a new design. She offers to redesign brides dresses into other pieces after their wedding day, which I thought was amazing.”

Colourful Pride Themed Scottish Wedding

Fiona and Allana wanted their summer 2019 wedding to reflect their personalities and their love story. They met at primary school (although were in different years so they didn’t really know each other) and reconnected when they both started working at the same place. Although neither of them were out at the time, they instantly clicked, knowing what they were feeling for each other was more than just friendship.

Married at The Three Kings in Falkirk, Scotland, their day was all about sharing their personalities with their closest friends and family. “We tried to incorporate little bits of our personalities all throughout the day”, Fiona told us. “Our table plan was made up of our favourite bands, some of which we had went to see live together. My favourite colour is blue, there are sapphires in both my engagement and wedding rings and that’s also Allana’s birthstone. Royal blue was our primary school colour too! Everything just fit. The day after, all our family and friends just kept saying what a great, happy, colourful day it was. I know all weddings are supposed to be, but everything just felt so right, you know?”

Fairytales in DIY: A Purple Themed October Loch Wedding

They chose Venachar Lochside as the location for their stunning October wedding and Mazz and Alex made all their decisions for the day based on what did or did not spark joy. The bride wore a full purple/ dusky rose ensemble – from her Rosie Red Corsetry dress, painted shoes (which she did herself!) and even her freshly dyed hair. The flowers were a mix of purple and red, to compliment Alex’ tartan, and they had pumpkins all over the place to reflect the season.

“My dress was a nice dusky rose colour with a pale blue top corset to combine the colours in our two family tartans”, she explained. “I also LOVE fairies and fairytales, and my favourite story in the whole world is Peter Pan, so I painted an amended Peter Pan quote on my shoes, and asked Rosie to sew a crescent moon with some stars, and the second star to the right to be bigger than the rest as a reference. We also decorated the wishing well with pages from a fairy story book we found in a charity shop when we went to give notice, and used the same book to make our confetti cones.”

Colourful Village Hall Wedding with A Brass Band & a £7000 Budget

They chose a local village hall for their September wedding. This not only meant Bronia and Joe had a lovely blank canvas to decorate however they liked, but it was a really affordable option (£500 to have it from Friday morning to Sunday!) The groom wanted a really big wedding, but the bride wanted to elope, in the end they met in the middle (ahhh, the secret to a happy marriage right?!) and had something medium sized but relaxed and informal.

“We went for something small and relaxed” Bronia said. “When I was younger my parents would have BBQ’s during the summer that would be super relaxed and go into the night with everyone just eating, drinking and have a good time.”

Autumnal Art Deco Disco Wedding

Julz and Andy almost cancelled their wedding… until they discovered Rock n Roll Bride (!!) Planned in just six months, the couple wanted a day that played homage to the art deco styling of their venue and the season in which they said their ‘I dos’. The bride told us, “The magazine pretty much saved me while I was wedding planning. I almost cancelled the wedding so I could grow my hair and lose weight. I couldn’t find any brides at all that looked like me… until your mag came into my life so thank you!”

They were married in October at Leith Theatre in Edinburgh, an old art deco theatre. Although it was undergoing a massive renovation and development, it was very easy to dress because it was already is stunning. “I come from a creative background so found it really easy to dream up a ‘vision’ of how I wanted the place to look”, explained Julz. “I wanted flowers, food, disco and autumn rolled into one.”
