Richard & Katarina - Fairy Glen, Isle Of Skye Elopement
05 December 2016

Richard and Katarina eloped to the Isle of Skye on a frosty November morning.  The day was filled with an air of excitement and the promise of an unforgettable adventure.

We met Richard and Katarina at Portree Hotel, where we lost no time in taking photographs of the couple at the final stages of their wedding preparation, as well as loving all the details the couple had.  Katarina's sparkly cowgirl boots and her many necklaces bought over multiple holidays with Richard made for some beautiful story-telling photographs.

Richard looked very smart in his traditional outfit.  I knew I wanted the photograph to reflect his Scottish heritage, so I asked him to sit by the fire and the photograph below was the result.  To me, he looks like a clansman sitting in his ancestral home, reflecting on life.

Richard and Katarina's wedding ceremony was held in the conservatory at Skeabost Country House Hotel.  Their ceremony was taken by the wonderfully-talented Meg Gillies.

Richard and Katarina's wedding marked the first time we have photographed there since the new renovations!  Skeabost Hotel is now part of the Sonas Hotel Group, making it the sister hotel of Duisdale Country House Hotel and Toravaig House Hotel, both gorgeous wedding venues that we love to work at.

After the ceremony at Skeabost, Richard and Katarina visited the amazing Fairy Glen.  Bizarre landscapes blended with an air of tranquility made for a magical setting for their fairytale wedding!

I loved Katarina's style.  Her funky cowboy hat made me want to play, so I asked Richard to walk around in the background while Katarina doffed her hat, making for a fun wedding photograph.

Fairy Glen itself was in the shade, but once we emerged we found a beautiful quality of light in a field of russet bracken.  We quickly stopped the car and this was the result.

Ever since Portree Hotel refurbished and strung these gorgeous fairy lights in the window, I knew I wanted to photograph a bride and groom outside them.  (Seriously.  Every time I walked past the hotel, I wanted to do this.)
