Run away together and marry under the shadow of the Cuillins.  Lose your heart all over again to the magic of the Fairy Glen.  

Whether you're seeking the tranquility of Loch Coruisk, enchanted by the sweeping Quiraing or jumping into the Fairy Pools, Skye's wild beauty makes a perfect backdrop as you and the one you love make your vows.

There's something about the scenery, so dramatic and majestic, that reminds you that this is the biggest adventure of your life - and you get to share it with your best friend.

Because many of our eloping couples come to Skye from abroad, we have put together a list of wedding venues, wedding professionals and legal information we hope will be useful for you!  You can find details about:

We'd love to hear all about your wedding or elopement plans!

For a legal marriage, it is important to contact the registry office nearest your ceremony location.  Click on the links for the Portree and Raasay Service Point, Broadford Service Point and Kyle Service Point.

Contact the service point no later than 29 days before your wedding date in order to apply for your marriage schedule via M10 form and fill out details of your two witnesses.  As there are two of us, we would also be delighted to act as your witnesses for the wedding ceremony if you are planning on a truly intimate elopement. 

The marriage schedule must be collected in person within three days before the wedding and brought with you on the day of the wedding.  Legal information on getting married or eloping to the Isle of Skye can be found here.  


We are currently running a special elopement offer for the first ten 2019 Isle of Skye elopements that we book!  

We are so excited about your elopement!  The adventure of a lifetime is waiting for you and we'd love to hear all your plans!

Secret Skye Locations:

Skye is enjoying increasing popularity and we expect crowds at the most popular beauty spots.  For couples who want a truly intimate elopement, we have put together a new blog series called Secret Skye.  While we cannot guarantee these places will be absolutely deserted, we can definitely confirm they are far quieter than the majority of Skye's popular outdoor wedding locations.  

Secret Skye - The Stacks.

Secret Skye - Secret Fairy Pools.

Isle of Skye Wedding Photographer 

Quiraing - an extraordinary landscape for an extraordinary occasion!  

You can find the Quiraing after around a 35-minute drive from the town of Portree.  At the top of a winding road, there is a car park, enabling you to walk just a few feet off the road and have the Quiraing as your background.  If you wanted to have your ceremony up the Quiraing itself, the walk takes around two hours but is definitely worth the trek.

Loch Coruisk Wedding Photographer Photo 

Loch Coruisk - there's something romantic about a location that is only practically accessible by boat.  Surrounded by Skye's jagged mountain range, The Cuillins, the loch is often wreathed with atmospheric mist.  There is a strong possibility that you will see seals and, occasionally, dolphins on the journey – making this wedding location a favourite for couples with children. 

Boat trips leave from Elgol, which is located approximately a 30-minute drive from the town of Broadford.  Once there, the terrain is fairly easy to walk, but sturdy boots are recommended as the path can be muddy.  To give you an idea of what the walk is like, we have put together a Loch Coruisk Virtual Walkthrough Blog

To book your boat trip, you can contact Misty Isle Boat Trips or Bella Jane Boat Trips.

The Old Man Of Storr - an intriguing rock, formed by part of the Trotternish landslip.  

Having your wedding at the foot of the Old Man of Storr would take around a 45-minute long walk up hill, on fairly easy terrain.  It can get muddy and boggy in places, so sensible footwear is advised.  Alternatively, the Old Man could provide a backdrop to your wedding photographs.  Jonathan and Cheree opted to have their elopement ceremony at the Bride's Veil waterfall, so the Old Man was visible but without the long hike!

Elgol - with jaw-dropping views of the Cuillins and a sheltered cliff, this is an excellent Plan B in case the boat can't sail to Loch Coruisk.

Where?  Once in Broadford, take the road signposted to Elgol and follow the road until you come to the harbour.  The Honeycomb Rock provides shelter in case of wet weather, as it overhangs with more than enough space to conduct a wedding ceremony.

Isle of Skye Wedding Photographer Photo

Fairy Pools - magical, intensely-coloured pools with a backdrop of jagged Cuillins add drama to your wedding day.  The name itself suggests something special – but the location exceeds your wildest dreams.  

Located close to the Talisker Distillery, the Fairy Pools are around a 35-minute drive from the town of Portree and can be found in Glenbrittle.  Getting to the Fairy Pools will require a 20-minute walk both ways, so you might want to wear boots and carry your wedding shoes for this one!  The terrain is easy as there is a path to walk on, but there are large stepping stones and mud to navigate.  There are a number of different pools where you could have your ceremony, including by several waterfalls.  For more information, read our Fairy Pools Virtual Walkthrough blog!  

A new development has seen ownership of the car park transfer to the community.  A new £5 parking charge has been planned - so this might be something to bear in mind.

Neist Point Lighthouse Wedding Photo

Neist Point Lighthouse - iconic, delightful and surrounded by beautiful views, this is an unusual and dramatic wedding venue.  

The Lighthouse can be found near Glendale.  The walk takes around 45 minutes down a concrete path.  However, if you opt to park in the car park and walk along the coastline, with the Lighthouse as a backdrop, this would save time and still result in impressive views.

Isle of Skye Wedding Photographer Photo

Fairy Glen - wind-sculpted green hills, still pools and abundant beauty makes this one of Euphoria's top elopement spots.  

It is located very close to Uig, where the ferry goes to the Outer Hebrides.  In winter, the terrain is slippery with ice.  During summer, however, it's a fairly easy walk to the top.    

Isle of Skye Wedding Photographer

Sligachan - stunning scenery and the option to have your wedding ceremony on the ancient bridge, makes Sligachan a terrific wedding location.  It is located in the middle of Skye, an easy distance from Portree.   

Isle of Skye Wedding Photographer

Talisker Bay - a gorgeous Skye beach with shining sands.  

Talisker Bay is close to Glenbrittle and the Fairy Pools, in the north of Skye.  The walk will take you along easy terrain on a road that fades into a dirt track.  It should take around 20 minutes each way.  

Coral Beach Wedding Photographer Isle of Skye Elopement Photography Photo

Coral Beach - dazzling white and beautifully windswept, this "beach" is one of Skye's top beauty spots.  

The Coral Beach car park located at Claigan, around a 10 minute drive from Dunvegan Castle.  The walk is along easy terrain and takes around 25 minutes each way.  Check out our Coral Beach Virtual Walkthrough for more information.    

Staffin Bay Wedding Photo 

Staffin Bay - crashing waves and magical scenery combine to create a stretch of beautiful coastline.  

Staffin Bay is located near to the Quiraing, Duntulm Castle and the Old Man of Storr and is around 17 miles north of Portree.  

Dunscaith Castle Wedding Photographer Photo

Dunscaith Castle - a crumbling ruined castle atop a majestic Skye cliff.

Heading from Broadford, take the turning for Armadale.  Follow the road until you see a sign post for Ord on your right.  Take the winding single-track road until it curves down, past a beach and up a hill.  Dunscaith Castle is to your right and requires an easy walk across a rough path,
