Creative elopement in Edinburgh

Join me in the world of weird and wonderful for this wedding at Jupiter Artland, just a stone's throw away from Edinburgh. This hidden gem, once a historic estate, now stands as a contemporary sculpture park, offering the perfect backdrop for an intimate elopement ceremony. Spread across 100 acres of woodland and meadows, Jupiter Artland's history dates back to the 17th century.

Once known as Bonnington House, it was reborn in 2009 under the creative vision of art enthusiasts Nicky and Robert Wilson. Their dream? To create a sanctuary where art and nature were in harmony, inviting visitors to embark on a sensory journey. Today, Jupiter Artland stands proud, showcasing a curated collection of contemporary sculptures and installations by acclaimed artists such as Anish Kapoor, Phyllida Barlow, and Antony Gormley.

Weddings at Jupiter Artland are perfect for playful personalities such as Melissa and JP below; after getting ready at the aptly named Artist House, they exchanged vows overlooking the sculpture "Animitas" by Christian Boltanski's is comprised of more than two hundred small Japanese bells, each of which is attached to a long stem planted on the island within Jupiter Artland's Duck Pond. The bells chime in the wind, letting out what Boltanski described as the 'music of the souls'. This exhibition piece was made for the most magical backdrop before exploring the park at their leisure and returning to the artist's house afterwards for a ribbon room-filled surprise. I had such fun with this creative elopement; take a peek at the playful images below, and if you're looking for someone to capture your unconventional elopment, please get in touch.
