Our Own Isle of Skye Scotland Elopement Vow Renewal

If you’ve been here for a moment, you’ll know that my husband, Brian, and I wish we eloped. After being married five years, we decided to have a “re-do”. And we couldn’t think of a more epic place than Scotland for our adventure elopement vow renewal. We experienced the highlands, Isle of Skye, had almost an entire castle to ourselves for a night, experienced some Harry Potter magic, and ended the day in Inverness enjoying some traditional Celtic music. I’d say that’s a pretty epic 3-day experience.

Connection and an amazing experience were crucial to Brian and myself, so we hired a photographer who I’ve personally worked with and learned so much from in helping craft that experience for the couples I work with (Robert J Hill you the man).

We spent a total of 2 days exploring not only the Isle of Skye for our Scotland elopement vow renewal, but driving to a remote castle to stay the night (which we practically had to ourselves). The next day we said our vows in front of the castle as the sky cleared just enough. We followed that up by stopping at a random spot I had seen the day prior that turned out to be the film location I thought it was. Then we ended by experiencing the Jacobite Steam Train and capped off the evening in Inverness listening to traditional music at Hootenanny’s.

In between, there were moments of laughter (SO much laughter it hurt), sharing vulnerabilities with those we surrounded ourselves with, and having the most kickass time with the most amazing human beings. There were audibles called due to weather, and moments where we weren’t sure what was going to happen, but I wouldn’t trade it for the world.

Surround yourself with a good team (like I did with Meaghan from Fleurt Beauty Company as my HMUA guru and RJH), and have an epic elopement adventure.

I can’t wait to show you around where I’ve discovered (on and off the beaten tourist path) for our own Scotland adventure elopement.
