A stunning setting for a romantic Skye wedding
Sometimes you just know when something is right and that’s how it was when Sara and Michael decided to elope to the Isle of Skye, with just a few weeks to plan their day. When Michael first contacted me he was in Europe on a trip he’d been planning for some time, visiting the birthplaces of his varied ancestry which included Irish, Scottish and Polish. Before he left for his trip, he and his beautiful girlfriend decided to make the trip extra special – they would elope and have a romantic Skye wedding, somewhere vast and beautiful.
My services were booked just a couple of weeks in advance of the big day and when I met Michael and Sara the day before, I was just struck by how laid back and calm they were about everything and how crazy they were about each other.
The next day I met with them at Duisdale Hotel where they were staying and witnessed them getting ready together – the tender moment when Michael helped Sara get her headpiece “just right”, and when she returned the favour, securing his button hole (boutonniere). Sara also chose to wear a beautiful silver otter necklace from local jewellery company Love From Skye.
After arriving at the ceremony location where we met the ever lovely Sonja Eckl, independent celebrant, Sara and Michael chose the spot they wanted to say their vows, and then Sara went atop the hill to ready herself to walk towards her future and with her dress billowing in the breeze and her hand securing her beautiful headpiece, she made her way towards an emotional Michael.
The whole ceremony was personal, intimate and beautiful with the most beautiful personal vows to each other. There is nothing better than seeing two people, completely in love, making this committment to each other.
Here are some images from their beautiful wedding.
