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

Photographs from a Styled Shoot, “Sligachan Weddings”
28 July 2014

Last night, after an uncertain day weather-wise, the sky cleared and a beautiful light appeared on the Isle of Skye - just perfect for our styled shoot at Sligachan.

The aim was to create dramatic photographs and poses within the famous, rugged landscape around Sligachan and on its well-know, Old Bridge. This was a real fun shoot to undertake. There were reflections to be made in the little pond near the bridge and the bridge itself - all with the Cuillin Mountains towering, sometimes darkly, almost glowering, which heightened the dramatic effect. One of the poses, on the wall of the Old Bridge, is directly inspired by Rolls Royce’s Spirit of Ecstasy.

Euphoria is always ready to use props and a surprising one came our way during the shoot. A couple had taken their dog and cat (yes, really!) for a walk along the river at Sligachan and, of course, I immediately asked if they would mind lending the cat to be included in the shoot. They very kindly agreed and he posed beautifully for us, turning his head to the light and getting gorgeous catch lights in his eyes! We think he added immensely to the shoot!

Finishing off, as the light was dropping, we changed tempo and theme by photographing at the button-tow in the nearby play park at Sligachan Hotel. Again, people were extremely helpful and the children playing were happy to let our beautiful model have a shot!

Hopefully, this venture will enable us to showcase wedding photography within the landscape of Skye and inspire couples to choose Sligachan (and Skye) as a location for their marriage.
