Elopement at Roulotte Retreat

24 Feb 2014

Take a fabulous couple, one dog, an intrepid registrar, two great photographers and a cool February day.  Wave a wand of Roulotte Retreat magic and what do you get?  The most lovely, tiny wedding. It was a real privilege to be a part of this  special celebration for Zulfi and Greta who travelled up from London to elope in the beautiful Scottish Borders last weekend.

The ceremony took place outside Ruby the pretty bowtop gypsy caravan.

Jane Norman, one of the Borders lovely Registrars, donned her hiking boots and married Zulfi and Greta at midday on Saturday 22 February 2014.

Zeppelin behaved immaculately – apart from one momentary lapse in concentration caused by an approaching chicken.

Zulfi and Greta’s hands were joined by tying a piece of tartan in the ancient Celtic marriage ritual ‘handfasting’  as a symbolic way of representing their union as a married couple.

…. and Alan and Avril, Roulotte Retreat’s enthusiastic and welcoming owners, were the official witnesses.

After the ceremony, the couple posed for pictures on the little jetty in the meadow.

… and then walked back to the Studio for a glass of fizz before departing for a celebratory lunch in Melrose.
