Our work as wedding, fashion, proposal, engagement and elopement photographers has taken us to Eilean Donan Castle.  There's something incredibly romantic about this venue - the moody walls, the dramatic views and the magic of a Scottish Castle just can't be beaten.

When is the best time to go to the Castle?

For Jason and Sophie's proposal, we went at dawn.  During peak season, weddings and elopements take place in the evening, after the Castle is closed to the public.  However, when the Castle is closed for the season, weddings can take place at any time, so please do contact the Castle staff for more details.  

The Castle looks beautiful at sunset, when the golden light rims it, but, really, there is no wrong time to visit Eilean Donan Castle!

I'd like to have my wedding at the Castle, but take some photographs in other locations.  Is that possible?

It's your wedding - anything you want is possible!  The Castle and the grounds are full of gorgeous locations to explore, but the Isle of Skye is nearby as well.  Your wedding day should be all about what you want - so if there is a special place you want to go, let us know!
