Today I am thrilled to share this gorgeous autumnal handfasting elopement shoot in Scotland.
The shoot was captured in the forest around Rest and be Thankful in Scotland’s beautiful countryside!
Images were captured by The Gibsons Photography.
To say we are thankful for having these surroundings at my doorstep is an understatement.
I still have to pinch myself when I venture out of Glasgow and see the beauty of our amazing country.
The shoot was brought together to showcase our amazing scenery and rugged landscapes complimented with some pretty wedding styling.
For those who are not familiar with handfasting, a brief description…
“In the past, a binding of the hands has been associated with couples making a commitment to one another for a year and a day.
Some couples like to use this idea and make their future wedding anniversaries an opportunity to review their relationship and the past year and renew their vows and commitments.
Other couples prefer the ritual as an outer representation of the joining taking place within which can’t be actually seen – the joining of hearts, souls and intentions.”
The brides exquisite beauty look was created by Laura Gray Hair & Make Up.
Bringing all these elements together with styling and design was Lemonbox Studios.
We had an amazing day combating the monsoon rain and gale force winds to create some magic!
