Intimate Loch Coruisk Wedding

Stella and Ben arrived on the Isle of Skye in May, fresh from their official wedding in Oxford which was a more traditional affair, attended by family and friends. The couple had originally really wanted to have an intimate wedding somewhere on Skye but because some family were not able to make it to the island, they decided to come themselves and arranged a beautiful, intimate Loch Coruisk wedding, conducted by my lovely celebrant friend, Sonja Eckl. The only other person present was musician Lea MacLeod who played his pipes beautifully for the entrance of the bride and groom. A little later, during the ceremony, Lea played a tune on his whistle - I watched Stella and Ben, totally wrapped up in each other, and looked around.....there was not a soul to be seen. It was as if we four were the only people in the vast, beautiful landscape and the music was hauntingly beautiful. It was a really special moment. After the ceremony I spent the day with Stella and Ben travelling around Skye, making lovely portraits of them in some of the gorgeous locations on the island. It was a pleasure to spend time with this lovely, young couple. I truly do have the best job ever. Here are a few of my favourite images from Stella and Ben's day.

David and Yvonne swapped one set of mountains for another last summer when they travelled from their home in Chamonix in the French Alps to the magnificent Skye Cuillin mountains for their Loch Coruisk elopement.

The couple were staying at the gorgeous Coruisk House in the village of Elgol and after getting ready there they gathered their things together and we set sail with Misty Isle Boat Trips over to the secluded loch along with celebrant Sonja and fiddle player Donald MacKenzie who played as Yvonne walked down her grassy aisle to David.

After the ceremony, Yvonne and David cut their incredible Tuxedo cake, baked by local cake-maker Fiona MacKinnon. The cake is a sponge filled with vanilla cream and chocolate mousse with chocolate icing on the top and drizzled down the side and I can confirm it tasted even better than it looked!

Here are some photographs from their gorgeous Loch Coruisk elopement. If you are planning to elope here or to somewhere else on Skye or the north-west Highlands, get in touch – I’d love to hear about your plans.
