Greta and Zulfi were our very first elopement to Roulotte Retreat and such a lovely story… they decided to escape London and enjoy their Special Day exactly as they wished, so they jumped on the train from Kings Cross, London with their beautiful dog Zeppelin and headed north to us in the Scottish Borders. They had planned it carefully beforehand with Lindsey, our Wedding Planner and ourselves but kept it secret and only announced the news on the internet with a cryptic image showing two carbon fibre rings in the shape of a bicycle, showing their joining of lives together and the launch of their new business Vel-Oh.
They were married in front of our very ancient lady, Ruby Bowtop who is almost 100 years old, by Jane the local Registrar, with Alan and I as witnesses.
We loved their utterly romantic elopement SO much that we decided to promote Roulotte Retreat as a destination for Elopements and Weddings.
Greta and Zulfi were such a lovely couple, so in love, so stylish and so magically romantic and will always have a special place in our hearts.
"Every time we think of Roulotte Retreat we cannot stop smiling. It was by far the most beautiful couple of days of our lives! Overwhelmed by the stunning surroundings, the kindness of everyone involved and Ruby Bowtop! There isn't a prettier caravan on planet earth, and Greta is getting it tattooed! Roulotte Retreat is the perfect place to elope, it touches the history of the Scottish Borders, it's SO romantic and Avril and Alan make it even more special with their enthusiasm and kindness. There was a moment when we thought they may have been more excited about us eloping then we were - if that's even possible! Honestly an unforgettable experience, there wasn't a single thing we would have changed.... And it's so hard to write about something so magical - you have to go and experience it.”
