Isle of Skye Destination Wedding // Nicole & Gustav
I’ll never forget the last elopement I photographed here and every time I return to photograph an Isle of Skye Destination Wedding I’m discovering something new about this magical part of the world.
This emotional wedding took place late last year on a rainy and overcast day when the ferns turn gold, the landscape transitions into an earthy-coloured canvas and the island begins to slow down before winter arrives.
Nicole and Gustav packed their bags and travelled all the way from Los Angeles to tie the knot in a place where they could leave behind their busy lives in the entertainment industry and spend time with the people that meant so much to them.
I met Nicole and Gustav the day before their wedding and one thing I could immediately see was the passion they had for life, each other and their loved ones. .. such kind and humble people!
After talking to some of their family members and getting to know one another a little I also learned that the past couple of years had been extremely difficult with the sudden passing of a very close family member. I knew their wedding in Scotland was going to be extremely emotional for them and for their family.One moment that I’ll never forget happened during the morning preparations… Nicole’s grandmother who passed away some time ago left behind a necklace that held great sentimental value to Nicole and for many years it went sadly missing. Something incredible happened because just as Nicole’s Mum was packing her bags for Scotland she discovered the missing necklace and brought it with her to Scotland to surprise Nicole on her wedding day.
The moving moment when Nicole’s Mum surprised her with her Grandma’s necklace to wear on her wedding day and she erupted in tears was one that is impossible to forget.
It’s a day that makes me smile when I think about it and I’m really happy that I can finally share this beautiful story with you! Nicole and Gustav’s emotional Isle of Skye Destination wedding at the Fairy Glen.
