You say ‘elope to Scotland’, they say ‘Gretna Green’, right? 


The tiny town has welcomed loved-up eloping couples for hundreds of years but it isn’t the only destination for a romantic Scottish wedding by any means. Scotland has it all, from ancient castles and historic ruins to mountain tops in the wilderness. Then there are the private islands with sands so white you might just mistake them for the Caribbean. 

I love seeking new spots for my couples to tie the knot surrounded by Scotland’s beauty. Whatever you’re looking for in an elopement, you’ll find it here. And the best part of all? In Scotland, you can be legally married anywhere, so the sky really is the limit! 

Why Elopements?

I decided to specialise in elopements and intimate weddings because, quite simply, I love them the most. Having had an intimate wedding myself, I know how truly special they are. Truth be told, I’m a bit of an all-rounder when it comes to planning weddings like this. My wedding and events experience, coupled with my creativity, stealth organizational skills and my love for beautiful Scotland, comes together to create once-in-a-lifetime, emotional, unique and personalised, adventure-filled affairs that are everything you had in mind for your special day. And more. 


I love getting to know my couples, finding out a bit about their personalities so that I can not only turn their love story into a gorgeous wedding day, but also arrange visits to all the best sights and attractions so that they can experience Scotland at its best – as newlyweds! 


My insider knowhow extends to secret scenic spots, cosy country pubs, indulgent hotels and everything inbetween. In big cities, highland islands and little chocolate box villages, I’ll share everything Scotland has to offer couples headed here for their big day. 


I can help you plan everything from short, sweet and simple ceremonies in stunning Scottish surroundings, to weekends full to the brim with excited pre-wedding breakfasts, leisurely walks, charming ceremonies with your favourite faces in the background and afternoon activities that range from chilled pub lunches to all-out adventures in the great Scottish outdoors. Basically, your wedding wish is my command.

We only work with the best suppliers and we also offer a luxury wedding planning and styling service, for when only the finest of things will do.

Planning a wedding from afar can be hard work but I’m here to make it totally effortless and enjoyable. I can help you find the perfect place for your Scottish elopement, help arrange the legal side of things, source suppliers who can make your Pinterest dreams a reality and share my secret tips to everything Scotland has to offer newlyweds. It’s the complete elopement package, a carefully curated wedding day that is big on fun and full of love. A bit like married life!
