Claire & Daniel, Isle of Skye elopement
Claire and Daniel chose a romantic and adventurous elopement on the Isle of Skye where Daniel had proposed the previous year. Travelling up from their home in West Yorkshire, they stayed in a characterful cottage near Elgol — a tiny hamlet in the south of the island. After a quiet morning, we all hiked around the Elgol headland to stunning location with views across Loch Scavaig to the Cuillin. Here, accompanied by a piper, Claire and Daniel had their heartfelt humanist wedding ceremony, exchanging their vows to the sounds of the wind and the sea.
Following the ceremony, we headed out into the most rugged part of Skye, armed with hearty picnics and prepared for everything the weather could throw at us…and it did! When the sun did break through the cloud it sliced through the landscape with ribbons of light across the mountain and moors. We left Claire and Daniel to enjoy a celebratory dinner at Kinloch Lodge, before rejoining them at Elgol harbour for sunset, catching the last few rays on a beautiful day. The following day, the pair headed-off for their honeymoon—a road trip along Scotland’s epic North Coast 500. We wish them all the very best with their future adventures.
