How Can I Have A First Dance At My Elopement?
17 January 2017

The First Dance of a couple's married life is traditionally danced in front of all their guests.  It can be carefully choreographed or a spontaneous and loving waltz.  

But if you are eloping with just you and your husband or wife, how can you still have a first dance that represents your personalities?  Will getting married out of doors, away from a power source, mean you can't dance to music?

Choose the best of both worlds.  You could get married at a hotel or outside in the grounds, and then have your First Dance inside using their sound system.  The sound quality will be enjoyable and you will have a proper space to have your first dance as a married couple.  This is your wedding day - so even if you are the only people present at your wedding, you should still be able to rock the dancefloor!

Bring your own music.  After proposing to his girlfriend on the bridge at Eilean Donan Castle, Jason played their special song on his mobile phone and they had a beautiful and romantic dance on the bridge.  Technology means you can have your First Dance in the mountains, on a loch, at the edge of a cliff or in the ruins of a castle!  If you or your new spouse are good singers, you might be able to serenade each other.

Have a musician or singer accompany you.  So you want to get married out of doors, surrounded by Skye's amazing scenery.  We have worked with pipers, clarsach and harp players and very talented singers - all of whom could add a flavour of Skye to your day as well as giving you a lovely accompaniment for your First Dance.  

Forget about everyone else.  Maybe you feel a little uncomfortable dancing just the two of you - but please don't.  This is your big adventure in a wonderful location and you should have every single one of your dreams come true.  Your photographer or videographer will do their best to be as unobtrusive as possible during this precious moment, but, chances are, you won't even notice them anyway.  Let yourself be swept away in a moment that is all about you and your new spouse.
