Celebrating the ethereal landscape and tones of the Scottish wilderness in Autumn – this shoot by Eva of Craig and Eva Sanders Photography is magical and inspiring … all deep berry shades and wintery sun-drenched golden glow.
Those stunning, wild moors of Glencoe are the perfect location for a Scottish elopement .. and those almost bohemian, slightly gothic bridal looks.. and wild, ghostly flowers… JUST SAYING.

Featuring fellow #teamTWC suppliers :  Asteria / Pyrus / and Ribbons and Lace ..

“The sun shone high those few summer days
Left us in a soft, wide-eyed haze
It shone like gold…”

That’s what this styled inspiration shoot has me singing … Stay Gold… It is VERY dreamy.

We’re so happy to be sharing these beautiful images from a top #TeamTWC collaboration ..

Let’s hear from the lady behind the concept & the camera ..

Inspired by my favourite photographers Paolo Roversi and Sarah Moon, I decided to arrange an inspiration shoot and invited some amazing vendors to get involved. Myrtle & Bracken, Asteria Bridal, Opus Atelier, Ellie Keating (Miss Scotland 2014) and I got together at my studio in Ayrshire to try something a bit edgier than my usual style of wedding photography, and this is the result. I used darker backgrounds and a smoke machine and tried new things at the editing stage to end up with some of my favourite photographs that I’ve ever taken!

Flower crowns have been extremely popular lately so I asked Di at Myrtle & Bracken if she could come up with something a little different, the next flower crown, and she didn’t disappoint! Asteria Bridal provided some fantastic hair and make up as always, Sharon at Opus Atelier gave us a couple of the most stunning dresses to use, and I couldn’t have asked for a better model!

And below from the lovely lady suppliers involved – bravo to you all! Beautiful.


We are being asked more and more to provide alternatives to the traditional bridal bouquet, and wearable flowers are the perfect accessory. A floral collar or cuff, can change your look from daytime to evening and we were thrilled to create the floral mask! We toned in the flowers with Asteria’s beautiful make up in gold and copper hues for a rich, decadent look with some seasonal rusty pinks to compliment Ellie’s skin.

As soon as I knew Ellie  was going to be our model for the shoot, I had a rough idea of the make up style I wanted to create. With any bridal shoot I think it’s important to create a beautiful, wearable make up, and I’m not overly keen on high drama make up – especially when there are so many other elements to consider (hair, dresses, styling etc.) – I’m a firm believer that less is more. Ellie has the most amazing blue eyes and blonde hair, so my intention was to create a make up that would enhance without overshadowing her natural beauty. I took some inspiration from an image that I found online where gold leaf was used, although I wanted something less obvious, so when I discovered copper leaf I was thrilled. The orange undertones of the copper contrasted so nicely with Ellie’s blue eyes, while providing a warm tone, which is the most flattering for blondes. I started with a really wearable make up look – flawless skin with a soft contour and peach-toned blush, a bronze-toned eye,contoured to give depth but highlighted with a pressed loose golden peach coloured pigment on the mobile lid, lots of individual lashes and a peach-toned nude lip. This initial make up provided a perfect starting point, and it was a 5 minute job to change the whole look with the addition of the copper foil. I deliberately positioned the foil to follow the higher points of Ellie’s face – this is flattering and also allowed for maximum impact as it’s where the light would hit & reflect. Pamela and I couldn’t have been happier with the resulting images, we absolutely loved working with Eva, Ellie & Di.

I was so happy to be able to style Ellie’s gorgeous long locks again.  I have been dying to showcase a really big exaggerated rope braid and her hair colour works perfectly with this.  Lots of brides have shown me similar styles – I felt this bridal shoot was the perfect opportunity to create this style and to highlight how perfectly Asteria hair and make up work together.  We had a bit of a brainstorm at the beginning of the shoot and I wanted to make sure one hair style complimented the beautiful oversized floral collar that Diane had made.  I created a faux bob which worked brilliantly with the flowers.  The next style was a simple horizontal roll which I used the fabulous copper leaf on – to pull the hair and make up into one cohesive look.  Lastly I let Ellie’s hair down and loose, adding some texture for a relaxed soft focused shot.

Neist-Point-Elopement scotland

Doozie time!

The uber talented Lauren McGlynn… one of the GWCs super photographer ladies… sent us this MOST LOVELY elopement, which took place on the beautiful Isle of Skye.

As one of the only 2 guests (the other being the floral talent that is GWC member Sophie, of I Heart Flowers!) Lauren couldn’t rave about this couple enough…

“It was truly a magical and emotional ceremony to witness, and these two were lovely to photograph. Such a stunning location!”

Haley & Noah are from Chicago, and in true romantic style, decided that instead of having a big wedding, they would take a big wedding TRIP to the UK & Ireland, and get married smack bang in the middle of it all, on the Isle of Skye….

Celebrant: Sonja Eckl-Riel
Photography: Lauren McGlynn
Flowers: I Heart Flowers
Hair: Karen Stevenson
Makeup: Mary McLeod

To find out more about Lauren’s photography, and I Heart Flowers floral creations..  Head on over to The GWC Directory.
