Monachyle Mhor Winter Elopement | Katie and Steven

Eloping at Monachyle Mhor

If you’re planning a small intimate wedding an Monachyle Mhor elopement is a superb choice. I’ve wrote before about my love for boutique hotel Monachyle Mhor [click here to see Jane and John’s awesome winter elopement].  It’s such a beautiful little spot to get married. All year round from the snow dusted winter months, to the knockout colours of Autumn. Not only does it have stunning scenery, but I love the unique, artistic interior of the hotel and of course incredible food. To me it’s the perfect get-away and couldn’t be better for an intimate family wedding.

Why choose a winter elopement?

Katie and Steven were married in February, a popular month for elopers! The venues are often quieter as it’s considered a bit of an in-between month. The tail end of winter, not quite spring but still plenty to offer. And you can’t go wrong at a place like Monachyle Mhor, where the scenery it’s stunning all year round. The venue itself has a beautiful, uniquely styled interior so you won’t feel cheated if you have to be indoors.

Winter weddings just add that extra feel of intimacy for me. The idea of coming in from the cold to the warmth inside with your friends and family. Or even just the two of you with drinks and food and roaring fires, it’s bliss. Winter weddings of course aren’t without their challenges, the cold being one of them! But my goodness you get rewarded for your efforts, you don’t need to go far here for incredible scenery.

Thank you so much Katie and Steven for asking me to photograph your beautiful winter Monachyle Mhor elopement.  It truly was such a pleasure to get to know you both and spend such a wonderful day with you and your families.
