To elope is to forget all expectations, opinions, and obligations that come with traditional weddings, and instead focus entirely on what matters most to you two, with nothing holding you back.


But with all of this freedom, it can be a bit overwhelming to start planning your elopement — when there are no longer any rules or formulas for what your wedding day is “supposed” to be, then where do you start?


The Runaways Guide PLUS is for YOU if you want to plan your own elopement in Scotland, but you’re not sure how.

Let's get started!


Who is the course for?

We designed this guide for couples who dream of an intentionally planned and styled elopement, but would rather do it themselves! So if you want to have an amazing day in the style of Ella Mai, our Runaways Guide allows you to confidently plan your elopement on your own time, and on your own budget. Don’t be fooled though - the Runaways Guide is not a substitute for a planner! Putting together a unique, artful, and authentic elopement takes a lot of time and energy - no matter how many resources and instructions you have. That’s why we also offer a special upgrade to couples who purchase this guide. If you start your DIY elopement, and then decide it’s a bit more work than you have time for - and you opt to pass the planning to us, we’ll discount an Elopement Package by the FULL PRICE of your Runways Guide!

What do you get when you buy the guide?

After purchase, you will receive a link via email to download a ZIP file. We recommend backing up this file so you never lose it! Inside, you’ll find all 6 parts to the guide, plus an introduction PDF. You also get TWO planning sessions with the planners behind Ella Mai Elopements. We reccommend one at the beginning of your journey and one at the end! You will receive a link to select a consultation time that suits you. You'll also get a link to our Facebook group for elopers and elopement suppliers in Scotland.

How long is it?

The Runaways Guide is broken down into 6 different documents, each focused on a separate stage of planning. In all, there are over 100 pages. It's all done at your own pace though.

My elopement isn’t until next year - should we still buy the guide?

Absolutely! The sooner, the better. Especially when you want to plan it yourself. There is a lot of information in it, so give yourself plenty of time to get through it all, craft your vision, find location/accommodation/supplier options, and finally to book them all.

I’m having a micro wedding - would this still be worth it?

Yes! We recommend this guide for anyone planning their wedding day with emotion and adventure as the priorities. Even if you are also planning a reception or celebratory meal afterwards, most of the content in the guide will still apply. Keep in mind though, we do not include any information on guest-focused reception planning. We do however include ways to involve your guests in your elopement if you decide to bring them along.

Who are the suppliers involved?

We have over 100 recommended suppliers in our guide. From photographers, videographers, florists, hair and makeup artists, prop hire, and even personal chefs and bartenders - serving all over Scotland. Those contacts are part of the value!

I am a supplier, can I be recommended?

Drop us a message and let’s see if we would be a good fit!
