Editorial: A Sporran Fit for a Highland Elopement

Honour your elopement story with a handcrafted Mackenzie Sporran. The perfect heirloom to commemorate family beginnings…


In Scotland, the wedding season extends beyond the summer months. Due to the rise in popularity of wild elopements, many folk are choosing to wed outdoors well into the winter months. In accordance with this romantic trend, a styled elopement shoot by photographer Emma Lundberg recently featured a Mackenzie Leather Day Sporran.

Whilst a Dress Sporran may be the obvious and traditional choice for a wedding, our contemporary style Day Sporran is ideal for those wanting something a little more outlandish.

Be inspired by some serious Scottish style romance…



Julien wears a Saddle Hide Day Sporran in Red, with Nickel finish chain and fittings.



Ideal for an atmospheric early morning start in Glencoe; the sporran is paired with a Highland Mist kilt from Gordon Nicolson Kiltmakers. Rose wears a bridal gown from Catriona Garforth, and was kept warm with a matching Highland Mist shawl from LoullyMakes.



Take your timepiece one step further by opting to include your special date, initials or new family name. Hand-embossed by the Mackenzie craftsmen, for a truly personal touch.



And we haven’t forgotten about the Ladies.

A Sporran may be the traditional accessory for the menfolk, but Mackenzie offer something for the women too. Our Ladies Sporran is crafted from the same design, featuring a subtle change in the fit of the strap. Favouring a more everyday wear on or across the shoulder.



His-and-Hers Sporrans? The perfect gift for yourselves, or the budding lovers you know this elopement season.
