June & Craig and their intimate elopement in the Scottish Highlands. These guys take the long distance relationship on the next level – across the wildest time zone difference – from Singapore to Newcastle upon Tyne, they were kept apart because of the Covid rules for 9 months! Deciding they don’t want to wait any longer they finally made things official in a beautiful intimate wedding ceremony on the shores of the loch at the wonderful autumnal Schieldaig Lodge.
A couple weeks before their day we finally managed to meet up. After having planned everything from behind our screens over video calls – we agreed to do a fun little engagment photoshoot in Glasgow. It was a great way to get to know each other a bit and have a little practice of having camera around. See the blog post from the shoot – they were natural!
Shieldaig Lodge Wedding
When planning the elopement in Scotland, they were pretty set on a hotel venue from the beginning and Shieldaig Lodge is perfect for that with the most stunning scenery and scenic drive across Highlands. Here you can watch seals from your bedroom window – or even better from the nice warm bath.
As for the guest numbers they planned a really intimate event and were joined by Craig’s closest family and June’s brother, as unfortunately June’s family wasn’t able to travel. Of course a bigger wedding honouring June’s Burmese heritage is about to follow in Singapore once the restrictions allow. It will be the perfect opposite of the romantic cold and rugged landscapes here in Scotland with the explosion of colour and warmth.
After the ceremony they enjoyed some drinks on the lawn and then joined by the video magician from Greece we ventured further to experience the stunning landscapes of Torridon while being chased by the rain, wind and rainbows and enjoying some hot tea and packed sandwiches the venue kindly provided for us.
