How to elope in Scotland

You got questions? We got answers!

Wee Wild Weddings package includes:

  • Up to Three (3) hours of photography from Joy Story. 150+ downloadable images in an online gallery.
  • Sixteen (16) hours of admin planning assistance from Fin Flükra (liaising with all suppliers, assisting with location options, accommodation,  extra suppliers etc).
  • Florals from Briar Rose Design (Can include bouquet, buttonhole, loose wired hair flowers or comb, ceremony arrangement etc.). Couples choose colour / florist choice materials. 
  • Humanist celebrant from the Humanist Society of Scotland to conduct your ceremony (separate joining fee applicable direct with HSS).
  • A fully styled & catered on-location luxury picnic of romantic sharing platters for two (2) from Scottish Wild Picnics

Our standard (as per “what’s all included” above) package price is £4295.00

Wee Wild Weddings are ideal for those looking to run away and just get married already! Spontaneous, romantic couples – this is for you!

So with that in mind we take bookings up to 9 months in advance.

Wee Wild Weddings are tailored to micro weddings of up to 10 & elopements for 2.

The standard package is for just you two but you can add on up to 8 guests. A fee for the picnic will apply if your guests would like to stay for food (£50pp adults / £25pp 2-12 y/o) – and they’ll be hella jealous if you don’t invite them to stay for the amazing picnic feast!

Yes. In Scotland your wedding has to be witnessed by two people (cannot include the person conducting the ceremony). But if you’re eloping just the two of you, don’t stress – we got you! Good news is, you’ll always have at least 1 witness in your photographer! If you add on video, there’s your second. Or a piper/musician – they can witness too! We can also supply an additional witness for a small fee to cover their time. So you are all set!

Alright, you caught us – There are some things we, unfortunately, can’t do for you – but worry not, help is on hand.

• You’ll need to choose your ceremony location, we will help with that – we have SO many fab location ideas to choose from!! The wilds of West Scotland, a great glen, a serene loch, somewhere ancient? We have a super-secret map full of ideas. 

• You will need to arrange your marriage schedule. Once you’ve decided on a location, you’ll need to apply to the council your ceremony location falls in for your marriage schedule. Most councils charge £70 for the marriage schedule and you need to give 29 days notice unless you have exceptional circumstances and then the 29 days wait may be waived.

• You will need to become a member of the Humanist Society Scotland – their celebrants cannot marry you unless you are one. It’s really easy to sign up though – once we’ve secured your celebrant we’ll let you know how to pay the membership fee. Humanist ceremonies are the BEST ceremonies and trust us – We’ve been to a lot of ceremonies!

What else is there to do you ask?? Just the fun stuff!! Picking your wedding outfits and perhaps getting some rings if you fancy them! Cat, our planner, is on hand to help research any required accommodation for you as well. Easy peasy.

We offer the additions of hair, makeup, videography and live streaming as optional extras to the Wee Wild Weddings package. We have a fab team that work with us regularly.

With planning support included we can source any other supplier you’d like though. A piper, a cake, a mariachi band – you got it!

The suppliers that are included in the basic package (planner, florist, photographer, humanist celebrant and picnic) cannot be swapped out.

We’re a dream team and we stick together – like the Power Rangers.

Travel costs for all suppliers for up to 90 minutes from Glasgow (3 hour round trip) are included in the package price with the exception of our planner Fin Flükra – whose attendance on the day is an optional extra.

We can travel further afield but in the interests of keeping us eco friendly we’d rather stay within 90 minutes of Glasgow as that is where we are all based.

We have so many amazing options that you really don’t need to travel far to have an epic wee wedding. Skye and Glencoe are overrated anyway 😉 We’ll take you to the unique hidden gems instead ♥

This extra special content is reserved for couples who have already booked their wedding or elopement with us.

So what are you waiting for? Get in touch now.

The clue is in the name, we’re Wee WILD Weddings 😉 no matter the weather we’ll be getting you married OUTDOORS! Yup! In Scotland! You’d be surprised how often the weather changes here – about every 5 minutes 🙂 So there’s always a break in it – we’re not had anyone wed in a storm… yet. (Update: 3 years in – we’ve had 2 couples wed in a storm – was still fun though!)
