Dunglass Estate Elopement – Phototgraphy Farm Beautiful Photoshoot Day
So, why Dunglass Estate elopement is cool? Beautiful home in East Lothian focusing on wedding venues, a 40 minutes drive south from the capital of Scotland, Edinburgh. The estate, surrounded by forest from the one side, has an old church chapel and secret, walled garden with a glasshouse. And on top of that is located by the North Sea bay. You have to see it to fully appreciate this place. It is a cool spot in Scotland for an intimate forest elopement or wedding ceremony in an old church. It is romantic, a lovely venue for the couple who prefer the luxury of having a roof alternative in the worst-case scenario, instead of rugged, wild elopement in the Scottish Highlands.

Rebecca and Rob – The Scotts Couple
The styled event, organized by Photography Farm, was all about elopement ideas and to show how calm and relaxed an elopement wedding can look. Rebecca and Rob, the real deal couple were just a perfect bride and groom. We started the shoot on a cold, rainy morning in late October. Morning at Dunglass Estate elopement preparation was all about detail photography and experimenting with light and shadow. Experiment, the keyword for me if we are talking about wedding and elopement photography.
Elopement in the forest – ferns and Nick Cave song
Luckily, the day cleared out with breaks of sun. We moved to the forest for a styled wedding ceremony. I love elopements in the woods. It makes you connected with nature, makes you feel grounded and relaxed. Well, the forest makes me well-grounded, at least. I believe we all desire that kind of connection with nature.
To make all of us feel like a real wedding ceremony, someone played the song “Into my arms” by Nick Cave from the phone. It should be a mandatory hymn for the lovers. I adore this song and artist, so I was over the moon hearing it! Styled photoshoots can be emotional and exciting too. The couple was walk-in ferns, very photogenic plants that grow almost everywhere in Scotland’s wilderness.
Elopement celebration ideas – The glasshouse
It may be unusual and not to everyone’s taste. I found it romantic and somewhat sweet, an intimate celebration with your loved one in such a cool, airy place. That’s the beauty of intimate elopements and micro weddings. Almost everything is up to your imagination, including ceremony. Scotland’s law made it easy for couples willing to get married. At the end of the day, we even sneaked a few additional photos in the nearby “secret garden” place as the sun was about to fade and the light was spectacular. The whole day was just magical from the start to the end. The venue, nature, glimpse of the autumn sun added that special feel to the entire event. The perfect day with amazing people around me.
Luxurious Elopement venue
Dunglas Estate is for couples who demand the highest standards of accommodation and catering options. Then again, prices for full wedding day packages start from £8000 in the off-peak season. I consider it reasonable given the hospitality the place offers. The budget should be close to £15k price including wedding photographer. For more information get in touch with the venue vendor.
