Euphoria Photography - Isle of Skye Wedding Photography, in the Highlands and Islands and throughout Scotland
Surprise Proposal at Fairy Glen, Isle of Skye
18 September 2021

Spencer was travelling to the Isle of Skye from the U.S.A. with his girlfriend, Erin, and her parents.  His future mother-in-law, Anne, got in touch with us regarding Spencer's secret plans to propose.  Together we all brainstormed locations and finally, after swithering between Brothers' Point and the Fairy Glen, Spencer chose the latter.  On his selected date, however, the weather forecast predicted rain and fortunately we were able to reschedule to the following day, which turned out to be absolutely gorgeous in every way possible.  It just so happened that this was the same day for a scheduled Royal Visit to the Isle of Skye by Prince Charles and Camilla, known in Scotland as the Duke and Duchess of Rothesay.  (Euphoria's Roz was off photographing this highlight.)

Spencer chose a quieter area of the Fairy Glen, with Castle Ewen in the background.  He had a very special ring for Erin.  Her Grandmother's gigantic diamond - now over 60 years old - had been reset in a modern setting and glistened and gleamed with a dazzling sparkle!

Everything went so well for this shoot.  Erin's Mum and Erin are gymnasts and Anne had brought her ribbons from which they hand and perform.  We decided for safety to use these huge, purple silks as a prop with Erin atop Spencer's shoulders, while the wind billowed and lifted the silk into an amazing, artistic shapes.  Yet another lift for Euphoria and, we hope, for everyone present to relive a fantastic landmark-day in photographs.
