Is it Practical to have an Isle of Skye Winter Wedding?
20 December 2021

Getting married in Winter on the Isle of Skye - what is that like?  The temperatures drop, snow-laden trees create a fairy-tale effect, abstract patterns of ice form on the still waters.  The iconic beauty spots are quiet, even silent.  Winter, on the Isle of Skye, has its own unique atmosphere.

Yes, it is perfectly possible to elope in the wintertime and enjoy all the wintry features.  Driving can, at times, raise some challenges.  So, if you are planning a winter wedding, it is a good plan to have some flexibility.  If the weather or road conditions make it more sensible to marry on a different day, you have that option.  The Euphoria team will always try to adjust, where possible.

The winter light and landscape is obviously different from the bold, punchy Summer colours and foliage but the eerie quality of winter light together with the frosted grasses and trees create a beautiful, fantasy-effect for your photography.  On a sunny winter's day, the light is sharp and clear, highlighting the shape and contours of the landscape and backdrops.

Will you be too cold to wear a gown?  Most brides prepare well for possible chilliness.  However, we find brides seem to be impervious to the weather!  

If you would like to get the feel of some winter weddings we have enjoyed photographing here is a Portree Weddingan Eilean Donan Castle Elopement and a Fairy Glen Elopement.

Don't forget that in Winter, the hotels warmly welcome eloping couples.  There you can snuggle by warm, glowing fires, enjoy the island hospitality and have some cosy indoor photographs too.

If the idea of a Winter Isle of Skye wedding appeals to you, please share your vision so that we can work together to create a truly magical photographic story.
