The enchanting Fairy Glen
For Rachel and Dinesh from Rhode Island, USA, a Fairy Glen elopement on the Isle of Skye was the perfect choice for their wedding. The couple met online dating and after 18 months together, romantic Dinesh arranged a holiday to Mexico to coincide with their 29th birthdays, which happen to be two days apart. Rachel had no idea where they were going until they got to the airport and was totally surprised when her boyfriend got down on one knee on a romantic beach to ask her to marry him. They wanted to have their wedding somewhere neither of them had been before and as they both love whisky, the Isle of Skye seemed the perfect place! Beautiful scenery and fine malts!
The couple were piped down their outdoor aisle by local piper Lea MacLeod and the music echoing around the glen was hauntingly beautiful. The whole ceremony was emotional; I love the shot of Dinesh wiping away Rachel’s tears.
After we finished our photography session, which also included some time around the Quiraing area, Rachel and Dinesh went for dinner at The Old Inn at Carbost. The owners and customers gave them a fantastic welcome – cheering them when they walked in – and their wedding meal was haggis and fish and chips. Sounds delicious!
