Scottish elopement photographer

When Canadians Kate and Tom contacted me to say they were looking for a Scottish elopement photographer to shoot their wedding on the Isle of Skye I jumped at the chance. Don’t imagine this was a split decision or random destination for this pair. From a little girl Kate dreamt of getting married on a cliff top in Skye. So I was thrilled to be charged with capturing the day when her long held dream became a reality.

I arrived early and met up with Kate, Tom and Sonja, the celebrant from Heart and Soul Weddings, and we drove to Dunscaith Castle.   A ruined castle that sits on an off-shore rock, Dunscaith rises 40 feet above sea level. And it was right there, amongst the ruins and surrounded by the most spectacular panoramic views of the sea that Sonja conducted the humanist ceremony and Kate and Tom were married.

After the ceremony we spent the rest of the afternoon travelling around the many beauty spots in Skye, from Ord and Isleornsay in the South of the Island up to Duntulm in the North.

A lovely couple, a romantic and personal ceremony at a magnificent location. Congratulations to Kate and Tom for getting married.

I love photographing elopement weddings. It always feels such a privilege to be part of my clients’ unique, intimate and personal day.

    Hi Suzanne my name is Tania and I am from New Zealand. I have been given your details by photographer lynne Kennedy after enquiring through the Eilean Donan castle website.

    A little bit about us, we are born and raised in New Zealand but my partners father was born in Glasgow Scotland before moving to NZ as a child. We have two children and first went to Scotland as a family in 2014 as our daughter was a highland dancer at the Edinburgh tattoo that year. My partner has been over a couple more times for his grandmothers birthday and then again for her funeral.

    We have been together for 20 years next February and my partner John is very shy and has never been keen on getting married let alone a big wedding but we have always had the idea floating around that a wedding in Scotland at a castle (ruins we feel is very beautiful) would be amazing.

    Our daughter is keen to dance at the Edinburgh tattoo again next year (although has not applied or been accepted yet so may or may not happen) but we have decided that as my mum has finally said yes to coming to Scotland for the first time ever (it’s always been a dream of hers) that we should just bite the bullet and get married. We have got a very very small budget and we really don’t want a big fuss so although Gretna green is a cheaper option we would ideally like a castle and possibly near the coast.

    We have looked at a few castle wedding websites and they are very costly so when I came across your website and saw the words elopement weddings I got excited.

    Please can you give me a bit more information on what this means and how we go about arranging this As I think this is what would be perfect for us.

    The dates we are looking at would be limited to between the 22-25 July. Reason being that our daughter has been accepted to dance at the Basel Switzerland tattoo and would leave Basel for Scotland to meet us on 21 July and if accepted into the Edinburgh tattoo would need to be in Edinburgh on the 26 July.

    I hope you are able to give us some further information and possibly be our photographer for the perfect intimate elopement wedding.

    Thank you so much and I hope to hear from you soon.

    Kindest regards
    Tania Mokaraka
