Loch Coruisk Weddings & Elopements
09 January 2017

Walking hand-in-hand through mist-enshrouded mountains and pausing on the edge of a tranquil loch to promise eternity to each other - what could be more romantic? 

Loch Coruisk is one of those places where time seems to have stopped.  It's magical, breathtaking and serene.  

Here are some Loch Coruisk FAQ's to help you decide whether this is the location for your wedding ceremony.

How long does it take?

The boat trip from Elgol to Loch Coruisk takes roughly around half an hour.  After arriving, you can choose where to hold your ceremony - atop a cliff, by the shores of the loch or by what could be the shortest river in the UK.

How do we get there?

Boat trips leave from Elgol Harbour.  Run by Misty Isle Boat Trips or Bella Jane Boat Trips, both companies are experienced with transporting couples for their wedding.  

We have had the pleasure of working with Anne, James, Iain and Duncan from Misty Isle Boat Trips on many occasions.

What do we do if it rains?

We spoke to Doreen at Bella Jane Boat Trips and she is thrilled to offer the option to hold your wedding ceremony under a canopy.  One of the wettest weddings we ever photographed was at Loch Coruisk.  Making the most of the moments when the rain stops, as well as bringing umbrellas and raincoats, means we can maximise the amount of time to get photographs without you getting too wet!  

Some of our couples have just embraced the rain, accepting it as part of Skye and part of their day.  Truly, nothing dampens the spirit of a couple in love.

When is the best time of day to elope?

In the autumn, the light is soft and beautiful.  In the peak of summer, we recommend either earlier or later in the day, to avoid harsh midday sun.

We have photographed Loch Coruisk weddings in all kinds of weather and can honestly say it is beautiful no matter what!

Can we bring our dog?

The boat trips do allow dogs aboard, but it is best to check with them beforehand.  We love photographing dogs at the wedding ceremony - they make amazing best men and bridesmaids!

Will we see dolphins or seals?

On our very first Loch Coruisk wedding, we were treated to a marvelous display by a school of gorgeous dolphins!  Seals can also be regularly seen.
