When Addison and Jeff got in touch with me about their plans to elope in Isle of Skye in early May, I was almost fully booked for the year.
Thankfully, they were flexible around my availability – and thanks to that we managed to find an elopement day for them that was suitable for all of us!
Addison mentioned she had been following me on Instagram for quite some time. And absolutely loved my work which is why she decided to contact me when looking for Scotland elopement photographer.
Of course I was over the moon to hear that! It was Addison’s dream to work together on an elopement in the Isle of Skye. Both Addison and Jeff loved the Fairy Glen photos published on my website and they inspired them to choose Fairy Glen as their elopement location in Isle of Skye.

Since they had completed their legal marriage paperwork in Canada before coming to Scotland, they were already legally married. And what they wanted to do is to have someone officiate a spiritual ceremony with then in Fairy Glen.
They chose Davina McCluskie to officiate their spiritual elopement ceremony. And they later mentioned that they couldn’t have chosen a better officiant to do this! Davina conducted a beautiful, emotional and intimate ceremony for Addison and Jeff. It included a ritual of hand-fasting and a quaich.
Davina is truly an expert when it comes to crafting personal, meaningful moments for couples eloping in Isle of Skye.
Following the beautiful outdoor elopement ceremony in Fairy Glen, we proceeded to take wedding photos in this incredibly unique place. It’s truly astonishing how many gorgeous backdrops Fairy Glen has to offer.

When getting married in Isle of Skye, outdoor ceremony is the best option!
The most important part of planning your elopement in Isle of Skye is surely deciding on the best time to do it and listen to your elopement photographer’s advice and recommendations.
My top piece of advice would be to embrace the weather, whatever it might be. Secondly, to avoid summer months – as they tend to be insanely busy with tourists, midges are unavoidable and the prices soar. It might be quite difficult to find suitable wedding suppliers and accommodation in Isle of Skye in the months of July and August in particular.
Lastly, ask your elopement photographer for advice regarding the schedule of the day. And the timings. It would be a shame to get married in harsh midday light instead of choosing the time that guarantees fantastic light and moody atmosphere.
Finally, Fairy Glen is a breathtaking place to elope and exchange your vows. There’s no other place in the world like that!
