Wild and romantic adventure and elopement photography on the Isle of Skye

An Isle of Skye elopement, Kinloch Lodge Hotel and an ancient castle…

Meeting Jacqueline and Dan was one of life’s happy mishaps. Meeting them just 16 hours before I photographed their Isle of Skye elopement was extremely unusual.. Travelling from California to marry on their beloved Skye,the couple had to make unexpected emergency photography plans and fate (and the recommendation of photographer friends) brought us together. Accompanied by Dan’s father and Jacqueline’s close friend the small group made the most of their time on Skye. From walking the Trotternish ridge to enjoying jugs of Mimosa’s on the morning of the wedding this small and relaxed party could not have been more fun to photograph.

Jacqueline, being Brazilian, and living in California was, in particular, hoping for lush greens and some rain on her wedding day. Skye had other ideas and at the end of an unusually dry  spell the colours were summer blue skies and the gentle golds of grasslands. Their day began with an intimate wedding service in the secluded gardens of the Kinloch Lodge Hotel after which we heading out on a portrait photo tour of Sleat..the light has never been more golden for a wedding day nor the scenery more perfect…..

    You continue to amaze and delight with your beautifully crafted wedding shots. The happy couples must be overjoyed when they see the magic you have created. Of all the photography sites I scan on a regular basis, your shots are the most consistent and engaging. Apart from your obvious camera and people skills, I cannot decide if it’s the Tunnocks Tea Cakes or the Irn Bru that give you that extra edge ……..ReplyCancel

    What a beautiful occasion….I can’t imagine having a set of photographs like these to show my children….it all looks magical. What a lucky couple, to have found you at such short notice and to have such wonderful weather!

    PS Just the line at the bottom jarred a bit – they were from California and married at the Kinloch Lodge, didn’t they? ( not from New York city and married at the Cuillin Hills)??ReplyCancel

      Thanks so much Sue. I see the confusion – the text in bold at the bottom of the page points to the previous blog post – about a couple from NYC who married at the Cuillin Hills!ReplyCancel
