Michaela & Iain’s wedding on the Isle of Skye
Michaela and Iain had a wedding day to remember on the Isle of Skye in August this year. As a photographer herself, Michaela’s photographs meant a lot to her and she wanted to have wedding photos taken in various locations on the beautiful Isle of Skye. I have to say she looked incredible in an amazing wedding gown that flowed in colours of blue and grey.
The weather was unpredictable and occasionally we could watch the sky grow dark and the incoming shower head over towards us. There were a few dashes back to the car along the way but some incredible images in the landscape which is what I love most. Michaela was well prepared with a pair of boots for walking in and was really happy to trek across the muddy ground – she never seemed to get muddy though and managed to still look amazing after the whole day outdoors.
We met with the guests before boarding the Misty Isles boat over to Loch Coruisk with Penelope Hamilton for their actual ceremony. We left and travelled over in the sunshine and walked over to a spot at the loch for the ceremony. Minutes later what I can only describe as a rain / hailstone storm opened up and with nowhere to shelter the couple embraced the wild weather and continued.
The rain subsided after a short and intense five minutes and a wind started that was so strong that I was almost blown off my feet. After that, everything went calm just in time for the rings and whisky to warm the couple up. I have never seen a group endure such bad weather before but in a way it made the day so memorable and unique and very truly Scottish. We travelled back to Elgol in the sunshine …
