Personal. Intimate. Organic. These are just a few words that embody the incredible beauty of Jess and Jacob’s elopement at Scott’s View. The couple looked as natural as can be in their wedding day attire as they said “I do” in the golden light overlooking the Scottish Borders. The hand-fasting ceremony performed by officiant Jane Norman was the perfect display of unity as Jess and Jacob enter their next chapter of life together.
Jess and Jacob
Scott’s View, Scottish Borders, Scotland
Natural. Big, elaborate weddings are incredible feats. And we can really the admire all the intricate inner workings behind them. But for us, we really just wanted an adventure – for just us two. So we decided elope. We’d been around Europe in our separate travels, but Scotland was still on both our lists as a “must see”. And we just went with it. Once we had things settled with a local registrar just outside of Glasgow (in a small town called Melrose), we started searching for a photographer. I saw Caro’s work and knew she’d be a perfect fit. Myrtle and Bracken was given full range with the flowers. We liked the idea of bunch of artistic expressions coming together (which also allowed us to just kick back and enjoy ourselves). The dress was designed by Free People and Jacob‘s outfit was literally something he pulled together out of his own wardrobe. I kept to my naturally curly hair, as with my own makeup. Everything just felt like… us.
Overlooking Scott’s View, hands bound, and just being right there in that moment with one another. It was pure magic.
