The Setting, the Gown, the Castle — This Northern Scotland Elopement Shoot Is Really Something Else

Gabriel Conover Photography

If you've seen Disney's Brave, this styled elopement shoot will look familiar. Taken at Dunnottar Castle in Northern Scotland — which inspired Merida and her family's Scottish Highlands home in the animated movie — photographer Gabriel Conover turned this royal landmark into a romantic elopement location, allowing the beautiful bluffs, medieval castle, and bride and groom to take center stage. The bride wore a backless lace dress with a plunging neckline and flower crown (made by photographer Gabriel himself!), while the groom wore a black tux. Taking into account the breathtaking setting and how happy these two look together, this shoot is all the elopement inspiration we need. See the stunning pictures, ahead.
