Euphoria Photography - Isle of Skye Wedding Photography, in the Highlands and Islands and throughout Scotland

Fairy-tale Elopement at Portree and the Fairy Glen
17 October 2021

A truly, fairy-tale romance took place on the Isle of Skye, this week.  Janny and Alan had carefully planned the romantic details of their elopement.  Their date was selected to coincide with a significant decade for the bride.  She had chosen the most gorgeous, lace gown and little photos of her and Alan's parents were incorporated into the bouquet and Alan's pin.  The stunning bouquet was yet another artistic creation from our local, floral artist, Carole, who is an inspired visionary! 

Locations to suit the couple are always important and one of the more usual locations chosen was the Lump, in Portree.  With its gothic-style tower and distant Cuillin range, it was the perfect, romantic-novel setting.  We had the damsel, the hero, the tower and with two photographers, one available to add in dramatic lighting to enhance the photographic story.

The Euphoria team were also delighted to be the couple's witnesses.  The ceremony was performed by Kenna, one of our local registrars.  (The registrars on Skye always perform the sweetest ceremonies and treat each one as very special, an honour to preside over.)  Next, we headed up to the Fairy Glen where the eerie pool acted as a mirror - another gothic-romance element!  We finished up at the Lump and this was a photographic heaven.  There was so much inspiration, we just did not want to stop working!

We always aim to have a slide show from the day, on Facebook, as quickly as possible, which allows clients to share their news with professional highlights.  This is what Alan and Janny said, afterwards:  

"We have just seen a sample of the photographs that you took today.  We are absolutely delighted with them…  We thoroughly enjoyed it and the pictures reflect that. Thank you so much for your guidance and patience with us both. Look forward to seeing everything that you have for us. Thank you so much for being our witnesses. We truly appreciate it."  Doesn't that just make our hearts soar!  We thoroughly enjoyed it too!
We would love to create some beautiful, photographic memories for you to treasure for always.  Please do share your fairy-tale dream with us!
