Intimate Wedding at Loch Coruisk
Every time I visit Isle of Skye I am always left in awe of its beauty. Many may think it’s challenging to feel inspired by a place you visit often, but I never tend to feel that way. Natalie & Josh took me to a part I hadn’t yet ventured to photograph their intimate wedding at Loch Coruisk. A stunning fresh-water loch, lying at the foot of the Black Cuillin Mountains, it is the perfect location to be whisked away to if you are looking to hold an intimate wedding.
Travelling all the way from Australia, Natalie and Josh decided on having a small and intimate wedding at Loch Coruisk with their closest family members. Leading up to their wedding day, the weather took a stormy turn, which resulted in many of the boats that travel over to the loch being forced to stay ashore. All we could do was cross our fingers and hope that the wind and waves would calm down so we could make the magical journey across to the loch.
Everything turned out for the better and we all headed to the harbour to make our way over to the ceremony location. Gliding across the waters, we all took in the surrounding views, we were all on this adventure for the first time together.
The wind had certainly dropped and the Loch was as still as glass. It was truly a stunning sight and provided a dramatically beautiful backdrop for Natalie and Josh’s nuptials to take place.
After there ceremony, we quickly headed a bit further in to the Loch to take some photos, before heading back to the boat. The boat ride was probably the most stand out part of this day. Lots of dancing and laughter followed as we departed from the magical Loch, making our way back to the harbour. We spent some time exploring the surrounding mountains and valleys, where Natalie and Josh enjoyed some quite time and of course a bit of adventure!
Settling in at Kinloch Lodge to rejoin the party with intimate dinner and drinks, emotional speeches started and a farewell to a beautiful and epic day.
