An intimate Edinburgh Elopement with a touch of Russian flair

Today I am thrilled to share the intimate Edinburgh Elopement of Maria & Roman, a couple who travelled across the world to celebrate their wonderful wedding day in Scotland with just a touch of Russian flair.

Images were captured by Olesja of In the Name of Love Photography.

Olesja tells us about the couple and their beautiful Edinburgh Elopement…

 

Before the lockdown hit the whole world I had a privilege to capture few weddings in January & February including this wonderful couple of Maria & Roman.

Maria & Roman came over from Russia, Saint Petersburg to celebrate their love in the bonny Scotland.

They choose Dalhousie Castle near Edinburgh for their intimate celebration.

We had a wonderful time exploring the gorgeous landmarks of the city, visiting a stunning Prestonfield House for a few couple photos & wandering around Dean Village too.

 

I hand over to stunning Bride Maria…

 

How did you meet?

We first met in August, ten years ago in the most romantic city – Saint Petersburg where we live at the present time.

Tell us about the Proposal…

Nine years later, in November 2019 we went to Paris and Roman bend his knee in the beautiful restaurant near the Luxembourg Gardens with words: ”Will you marry me?”. And my answer was: ”Of course, yes!”.

At that moment I was the happiest girl in the whole world!

It was emotional moment for both of us.

Tell us about your Wedding planning journey…

We always wanted to elope to Scotland and in one day our dreams all came through.

Scotland is the best place on the earth, and it was an incredible adventure

History, architecture, culture – everything connected here in the perfect proportion. Leaden sky, ancient castles, mountains, lambs, whiskey, bagpipes & that magical fairy tale atmosphere that combined to make our wedding day even more special.
