Today I am thrilled to share this beautiful intimate Skye Wedding captured by the lovely Rosie Woodhouse of Little People Portraits Skye.
Rosie specialises in creating beautiful photographs which capture the clients spirit and the beauty of the Scottish landscape, particularly Skye.
As an experienced landscape and portrait photographer, she spends many happy hours travelling around Skye searching for the best locations for great images and the best places to duck into for a coffee should the weather do its worst!
Skye is a wonderful destination for weddings, anniversary and vow renewal celebrations and love,and Rosie loves to capture special days.
She is specialised in portraiture, and is also one half of Landscapes365, the personalised landscape photography people and the home of Love Letters.
Another string to their bow is commerical photography for holiday accomodation owners, retailers, crafters and manufacturers.
Rosie recollects Fiona and Angus’s special day,
“Fiona and Angus married in the old ruins at Armadale Castle, Isle of Skye on 17 September 2011 under a sky splitting sunshiney Autumn Skye day.”
“The day had begun with rain lashing against the windows of the the tiny boutique hairdresser’s in Sleat, Isle of Skye…”
“The flowing bubbly lightened the mood of the bride, maid of honour and bridesmaids and by lunch time, we were able to eat outside at the bride’s gorgeous apartment/honeymoon suite at Armadale Castle.”
“Fiona was born and raised in Tarskavaig, Sleat and when she and Angus decided to marry (at last!) there was only one choice of venue.”
“The beautiful castle and gardens of Clan Donald are one of the most perfect settings for a wedding imaginable….the ceremony taking place in the ruins of the ancient castle looking out over the Sound of Sleat.”
“An intimate family service with 25 guests was presided over by registrar and former school friend of Fiona’s Meg Gilles and photographed by myself, another friend from school and dorm room mate.”
“Myself and Meg both wondered before how they would keep their happy emotions in check during the service.. ..but professionalism prevailed.”
“After the ceremony a champagne reception on the beautiful lawns outside the castle gave the children an opportunity to run wildly and for both formal and informal photographs before I stole Fiona and Angus away for some quiet photos under the dappled light of a the glorious oak trees near by.”
“The couple were serenaded by piper Angus who had renovated Fiona’s grandfather’s bagpipes for the occasion and then they had a beautiful meal!”
“In the evening a ceilidh for 120 reeled the night away to the Sheepshank Redemption in true Skye ceilidh style.”
“Fiona’s favourite memory of the day was her sense of building emotion as she approached the wedding venue, seeing her Father waiting to give her to Angus and then the words of the marriage service.”
Thank you so much to Rosie for sharing a beautiful look into an intimate celebration against such stunning surroundings.
