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

Scottish Castle Weddings
02 February 2016

Castle weddings and ancient buildings on the Isle of Skye and the Isle of Lewis provide wonderful venues and a fairytale-style romantic wedding.  Even if a castle is not your chosen venue, you can still include a castle backdrop for some of your photography.

The Isle of Skye and environs boasts a number of functioning castles such as Eilean Donan Castle (on the mainland) and Dunvegan Castle and other almost Gothic-styled castle shells such as Armadale Castle, Duntulm and Castle Moil.  Dunvegan Castle can provide an entire wedding package including a dedicated room for your ceremony, for your signing and for dining.  The castle gardens, located near a loch, include a waterfall and bridges, ancient archway and leafy walks.  Eilean Donan Castle has featured in many films and television series and is one of the best known castles in Scotland.  It has no garden but is accessed by a multi-arched bridge and stands on a promontory so that the castle is almost entirely surrounded by water with rugged peaks in the background in almost every direction.  Lews Castle, in the Isle of Lewis, has been recently renovated and the results are spectacular.  Armadale Castle is ideal as a location for photography.  Although a shell, the castle has a beautiful arch encrusted with colourful creeper, exotic gardens to explore and views across the sea to the mainland.  

Castle Moil is located to the south of Kyleakin and is a small, jagged ruin easily accessed by a short walk.  The Skye bridge is nearby and the castle looks out towards Kyle of Lochalsh on the mainland.  Duntulm Castle is a larger ruin located in the north of Skye looking out across the sea to the Scottish mainland.

Other interesting locations include the tower on The Lump in Portree, Skye and a number of ancient Brochs (thought to be protective against Viking attacks) in different locations.

A castle wedding is a totally unforgettable experience and with the Euphoria team on hand to photograph your wedding with drama and style, you will have unique photographic memories to treasure for always.
