Romantic Weddings in the Scottish Highlands

Rustic, natural and quintessentially Scottish – this editorial showcases the stunning landscapes, natural colours and wildflowers found in Scotland and Arran.

Home to the The Boathouse at Dougarie and a talented team of suppliers, this editorial celebrates the dramatic and atmospheric landscape. The island based props hire and event styling company Dekor&co provided a wide range of wild and locally grown flowers to complement the surroundings.

The Boathouse is an exclusive use destination wedding venue on the Isle of Arran. You can celebrate your wedding day surrounded by spectacular landscapes and your own beach, in a beautiful historic building built originally for the Duke of Hamilton to entertain their guests.

This is understated, affordable luxury, and provides the perfect relaxed, rustic atmosphere for your wedding. The location is remote and secluded enough to feel worlds away from the hustle and bustle of real life, but easily accessible for your guests given its proximity to Glasgow and all its associated transport links.

Dougarie Estate also offers a stunning setting for romantic elopements in the Scottish Highlands. Couples have the option to have their ceremony up in the hills at Loch Iorsa, the secluded location is on the estate and close to The Dougarie Boathouse.

All in all, we’re totally smitten with this shoot and it makes me want to elope (even though I’m already married!), frolic in the hills, feel the wind in my hair, all whilst wrapped in a warm blanket and my love’s arms.
