a sunny surprise city elopement in glasgow

Treasa and Rob eloped on 1st June to Glasgow Civic Council Offices and were planning this city wedding for six months. Huge thanks to Chantal and Scott from The Gibsons for sharing their images of the day, you can find those guys on their website, Facebook or Instagram.

“As we had planned to elope we wanted somewhere beautiful, central and my twin sister had gotten married there! We loved keeping the secret.”

“We did most things together and Rob travelled to Glasgow to complete paper work and confirm events a few months before.”

“I got my dress in a sample sale in Frilly Frocks in Ireland. Previously I had gone to choose a bridesmaid dress there. Dara kept the secret but also shared the excitement. The whole process was just lovely. I went with a Rembo Styling dress. It was light, flowing and so comfortable. I loved it.”

“We had a civil ceremony that we tailored to our preferences. My favourite part was walking down the aisle. Rob and I were both so excited but walking in to see him waiting there was just amazing and emotional. There are so many special moments but that particular minute still fills me with joy.”

“My favourite detail was a surprise from my twin. We went for lunch in Two Fat Ladies, she had organised a miniature wedding cake, balloons, confetti, Mr & Mrs signs for our chairs. All the traditional wedding things and it was just lovely.”

“My clearest memory is walking around Glasgow Green on a beautiful sunny afternoon with our photographers shooting memories of the day. We strolled in the sunshine, ate ice cream and smiled… willingly and a lot!”

“Elope! We decided to elope for lots of reasons but keeping the secret and planning without anyone knowing was so much fun. Nothing beats the reactions of telling everyone afterwards though. It was just magical.”

“Chantal and Scott our photographers were just brilliant. They fitted in with our vibe and kept us calm but also really captured a sense of the day. As we had a tiny wedding party the photos are so valuable for sharing with family and friends. They compiled a wedding video of the images which brought lots of happy tears.”

“Cosmos Floral Design were amazing. Sophie and I communicated through email but she got my requests spot on. Better than I could have imagined. Driven in Style were also truly fantastic. Keeping nerves at bay, ensuring the car was cool on a sweltering day. When it’s a small wedding party the other people are part of the day so much more.”
