6 Reasons to stay at the House of Juniper When Eloping in Scotland

Scotland is one of the most beautiful places in the world to elope. You cannot go wrong with the lush landscapes that the Island of Skye has to offer. It is also relatively easy to plan since there is no language barrier, no required permits, and locations are fairly secluded so you don’t have to worry about curious on lookers. 

When planning an elopement, couples often overlook the importance of picking out a suitable place to lodge. However it should be prioritized to provide the most ideal place for getting ready photos, convenience to location, and be able to accommodate any guest that will be joining you. When planning your elopement in Scotland, I highly recommend booking your lodging at the House of Juniper. I have shot multiple elopements in Scotland and every couple has raved about their experience staying at the House of Juniper. 

Here are 6 reasons why I recommend staying at the House of Juniper for your elopement in Scotland:

1. It is close to all the most scenic locations to elope in the country

The House of Juniper is less than an hour away from the best locations to elope in Scotland found in the Island of Skye including: The Fairy Pools, Brothers Point, The Quiraing, and Old Man of Storr (just check out the photos below). This allows for less time in the car and more time making memories together. The House of Juniper is also located right off of A-87 which is the main highway running through the Island of Skye. This allows for an easy sunrise getaway or late drive back without the hassle of navigating remote roads. 

2. The House of Juniper offers Unparalleled Photo Opportunities:

The grounds of the House of Juniper are nothing less than picturesque. There are too many options to choose from, but I love taking couples in front of the manse, the surrounding fields, or the Inner Sound which is a 5 minute walk to get a few shots near the water. You will love the diversity it will provide to your photo gallery!

3. Getting Ready photos will blow you away

Many couples overlook the important of getting ready photos on their elopement day. Getting ready photos provides a more complete gallery with a fuller picture of your elopement day. It is important to choose a place to stay that provides good lighting for indoor photos. You can also lounge in between events and the photos will turn out amazing! 

4. There is a outdoor shower for some more intimate photos 

But what if you want those REALLY intimate photos? The House of Juniper has two locations that I love to capture more spicy moments. They have an outdoor shower that is playful and fun in the summer, or a steam room if you are looking for something more steamy. 

5. It can accommodate wedding guests while still providing privacy to every couple 

What if you are eloping, but are still bringing a few special guest? It is most convenient for everyone to lodge at the same location. This ensures that everyone arrives to your ceremony on time. You would be surprised how many guests are late when navigating directions abroad. Staying together also allows for more time to celebrate together. The House of Juniper can house up to 14 people in the Manse and 14 people in their luxury cabins. Don’t worry, the luxury cabins do provide privacy, so that you can enjoy every moment being a newly wed. Your Guest can also enjoy time checking out the health suite spa featuring a steam room, outdoor bar, outdoor shower, and indoor restaurant and bar. Location is also close to 

6. They have a restaurant that is perfect for a rehearsal or reception dinner

When eloping abroad you will want everything to be as close as possible from lodging, food, and ceremony. On the Island of Skye everything can be so wide spread that you will save time if there is plenty of food options where you are lodging. Having a restaurant on the grounds also provides a space for everyone attending your elopement to gather privately. 

The House of Juniper offers everything you need for the ultimate elopement experience in Scotland. From its stunning location to its luxurious accommodations and intimate amenities. This charming retreat offers the perfect backdrop for celebrating your love story.
