Michael & Leagh - Loch Coruisk, Isle Of Skye Elopement
03 October 2016

Leagh and Michael met through friends at a party.  Michael immediately won Leagh's heart after he made her toast late at night.  When he moved to Edinburgh for work, Leagh followed him - and the time they had to spend apart made them realise how much they wanted to be together.

On September 15 2016, Michael and Leagh came to Loch Coruisk, Isle of Skye for a romantic commitment ceremony.  Lost in the magic of the incredible location, and wrapped up in each other's company, they brought happiness to themselves and everyone who spent the day with them.

Michael spent a long time looking for the right ring for Leagh. He found her a beautiful 1920's sapphire ring from a jewellers who specialise in antiques in Edinburgh and was so excited when he picked it up that he proposed the same day.

Leagh also wore a very special bracelet which her grandmother had crafted from a Newbridge spoon.

Leagh later surprised him with her own proposal with a watch in a secret trip she planned at Traquair House, where they shared some of their happiest moments together.

During their commitment ceremony on September 15 2016, Leagh placed that very same watch on Michael's wrist and he slipped her beautiful ring onto her finger.

Loch Coruisk is an amazing location, full of photographic opportunities.  There's a magic about it that provides a wonderful backdrop for wedding photographs!

Having dual perspectives is an incredible advantage when photographing a wedding.  Not only do we bring different skills to the day, but also a different take on the same angle - resulting in two amazingly varied shots of the same pose!

The cold September day didn't deter Leagh from jumping into the loch and paddling!

After the amazing crew at the Misty Isle Boat Trips took us back to Elgol, we went across to explore the beautiful Honeycomb Rock that juts out from the cliff.  

The curving roof of it gave the photographs a cathedral-like atmosphere.
