Mountains and adventure – a Torridon elopement

Couple elope to the Scottish Highlands in a vintage red MG

Seth and Pearl met on a flight to Canada 10 years ago, and have been pretty much inseparable ever since! Their love of mountains, lakes and adventure led them to one of our favourite parts of Scotland, Torridon in Wester Ross, where they were married by the shore of Loch Maree before taking a scenic drive around the Highlands in a MGB convertible roadster. Their photos and film took our breath away!

How did you two meet?

We were on the same flight from London to Vancouver back in 2009, heading to Whistler for a ski season. A few dates and we’ve been pretty inseparable since then. We got engaged on the 1st December (Christmas tree purchase date!) and married five months later.

What brought you to Scotland?

Because you can get married anywhere and the scenery is insane! Our ceremony was on the shore of Loch Maree, and was officiated by Maureen Barbie from Gairloch Services.

Our flowers were a simple buttonhole and bouquet, picked up the day before – easy!

Your photos and film are incredible!

We wanted photos to catch the scenery as much as ourselves, to share with the rest of our family. Speaking with Sean of WeAreElopers, he was an obviously great fit and then mentioned about a mini video alongside photographs. Justyna shot the photos and Sean the video – with a similar eye, the works complemented each other and gave such a well rounded story of our day. It’s been such a great way to show others and remember the day!

What an  incredible part of Scotland to elope to! Thank you for sharing your wedding story with us Seth & Pearl. x
