Our highland elopement

Scottish Elopement Wedding

A week ago today, Pete and I tied the knot! We travelled up north with our two witnesses (our dear friends Ashley and Liam) and stayed in the stunning Driftwood House on Camusdarach Beach in Arisaig. Our elopement was a closely guarded secret, and we only confided in a handful of family and close friends about the plans for our big day. Despite the wild Scottish weather taking a turn for the worse the morning of the ceremony, we still had a magical time and ended up exchanging our vows in the main room of the house, overlooking the beach. What's that lyric about rain on your wedding day?! It might have been ironic but it was still bloody beautiful. I'll let these photographs do the rest of the talking ♥

Our wedding was conducted by a humanist celebrant, the lovely Paula Wilkinson from Fuze Ceremonies. My friend Ashley also happens to be a dab hand with a camera (understatement of the century!) and she captured all the photographs for us, while Liam filmed parts on my camera so we can make a wee video for our reception party in May. I can honestly say that this was the best day of my life (well, on par with the day that Reuben came into the world) and it was over far too quickly. I'd do it all over again in a heartbeat, and I can't wait to party with our family and friends in a couple months time... and get to wear my dress again! (duh!)

I wanted to share the pictures here, on my blog, before anywhere else. As this is such a special little corner of the internet for me. Those of you who have read this blog for the 8+ years I've been writing it have grown up with me. You've seen my heartaches, milestones and life achievements. I've shared the good, the bad, and the ugly. So it only felt right to share on here first, the next big step in my life as I start a new chapter as Mrs Duthie. Thank you, as always, for your endless support and for coming along with me on this adventure ♥
