Applecross Wedding in the Winter

Applecross has just become home for JP & Kirsten so it only seemed fitting that they would have their wedding in the village where they would be starting their new life together. Their Applecross wedding was a bringing together of not just two lovely people but two opposite ends of the world. JP is from South Africa where they met while Kirsten was travelling there a few years ago and so there were many guests who made the incredible journey from there all the way to this tiny little fishing village on the edge of the world. With so many guests travelling from afar they decided that they would hire out Eagle Rock, a stunning home overlooking the water toward the Isles of Skye and Rassay.

Amazingly the wild weather which had been whipping across the west highlands all month took a breather on this morning and they dawn broke a golden glow and crisp blue skies hailed a good start for this couple. Kirsten started her day off at Eagle Rock having hair and makeup done by Lynn Reilly  while JP ran back and forth between their new home and the Applecross Village Hall where he was putting the final touches to their theatrical inspired wedding. The venue was completely transformed by Limelight Events, they draped the whole hall in a pale fabric with fairy lights sparkling through it and created a sheltered entranceway to protect everyone from the weather outside.

JP was stunned as Kirsten walked into the room wearing her grandmothers wedding dress, a stunning silky vintage piece with her hair done in an early Hollywood style. They had a beautiful ceremony with music, poetry, handfasting and signing of the register. After the ceremony we took the whole wedding party backup to Eagle Rock for the more formal shots while the guest enjoyed lovely canapés from Good Highland Food. The newlyweds then returned to enjoy a fabulous 3 course meal with all of their guests followed by speeches and a special birthday surprise for one of the guests. Their cake, which was lovingly made by a friend, had a well known Protea flower of South Africa as the crowing piece on top as did the flower arrangements and the bridal bouquet by Amanda Call.

After the cutting of the cake and the first dance the night went on with everyone giving their best on the dance floor to The Shandoneers, a Glaswegian celeidh band and DJ Paddy Gordon. It was a joyous evening and an exciting start for this couple who are coming to the highlands to bring their youthful excitement to this magical place.

Isle of Skye Wedding

Craig and Emma had a beautiful wedding this August in the peaceful little village of Dornie which overlooks Elien Donnan Castle. Father William McLean held the ceremony at the Dornie Catholic Church where friends and family from as far as South Africa and Singapore came to celebrate in their joyous marriage. The sun was shining on them as they came out to greet the guests before heading off to have a private photo session with us at two locations. They really enjoyed this moment away from the crowd before the rest of the celebrations commenced.

The wedding reception was held at the Duisdale House Hotel on the Isle of Skye where everyone enjoyed fabulous food and drink with the most stunning views of Loch Hourn stretching out toward the hills. The speeches were held in the main reception room followed by highland dancing that kept the crowd enjoying themselves till late.

Bagpipes and a Plockton Wedding

Dol and Mal tied the knot on July 2nd 2016 with a beautiful loch side ceremony in a gorgeous garden in the little village of Plockton. In typical highland style the weather was ever changing that day but the skies cleared just in time for the ceremony and held out as the couple lead the procession of guests through the village while the groom’s brother played the bagpipes. It created a real sense of atmosphere and brought well wishers into the street.

The procession culminated at the village hall where the celebrations began. Just as the crowd began tasting the selection of fabulous canapes and cocktails in the safety of the village hall the rains returned, the timing couldn’t have been more perfect. As the skies cleared again we grabbed the moment and got the shots of the newlyweds and family members in front of one of the most iconic views in Plockton with the famous crags in the background.

The speeches were fantastic, there were many laughs and some tears too and many of the guests left wonderful video messages for the new couple to watch along with footage of the whole day from the ceremony to the procession, the speeches and the ceilede where the Scottish guests tried to teach the American guests how to strip the willow! The night finished off with some great tunes and some great moves on the dancefloor with new friendships formed the night played on into the wee hours.
