Mr & Mrs Page - Sligachan Spectacular, Isle of Skye

clock September 4, 2013 12:30 by author Martyn

I had the pleasure of being asked to shoot a good friends wedding up on the Isle of Skye a few months ago - as you'll probably be able to tell from my blog, I'm a huge fan of the Western Isles, and jumped at the chance to capture their wedding. It was actually the Bride and Groom, Martin and Becs, who introduced me to the wonders of Skye, a number of years ago. Since then, we've visited without fail every year! Sometimes, we've managed two or three trips up there in a single year! It's a truly special place.

Their wedding took place at the Sligachan Hotel - a place where many a Cuilin adventure have both begun and ended. With the wedding outside(!), the Scottish weather was very forgiving and other than a brisk breeze it was a perfect setting at the foot of the Cuilin Mountains. The bridge on which they got married, dates from the 1820's - possibly even earlier, but thankfully is no longer used for anything other than foot traffic - it provided the perfect setting for a truly fantastic wedding day. Here are a few of my favourite shots from the day:















































Exige in Skye

As a last minute arrangement, I got to take the spanking new toy up to the Isle of Skye for our annual jaunt to my most favourite place on Earth...

9 hours in the Exige, following some of the most spectacular roads in the UK (Glencoe!), followed by a week of relaxation (Fon Tobar Cottage, Fishing, walking in the Cuillins...), amazing food (The Three Chimneys!), photography (Canon 5D Mk2!) and thrilling daily drives. If Carlsberg made holidays...!

Here are a couple of my favourites from the week. See more over on my flickr gallery over the next couple of weeks.
