Alex & Jamie | Winter Isle of Skye Wedding, Scotland

Alex & Jamie decided to finish the rollercoaster year of 2020 in the best way they could imagine, by eloping in Skye. They stayed at the Skye Red Fox Retreat, which is run by two of the loveliest people and is perfectly located for those visiting the Quiraing and Storr nearby. It also has an outdoor bathtub with incredible views of the Trotternish ridge!

Alex & Jamie held their ceremony on the Quiraing, where the snow started to fall gently around them during their ceremony on the clifftops. The ceremony was led by the incredible Rona the Humanist, and included their personalised vows, a traditional handfasting and drinking from the Quaich.

Alex & Jamie wanted to get married for a long time but struggled to find a way to have the ‘normal wedding’ that best represented them. Then 2020 happened, and their perspective changed. I love these words that they shared with me on why an elopement was right for them.

“An elopement just works for us, we love the outdoors, we love hiking and beautiful, striking landscapes. We can tell each other how much we love each other and ugly cry without feeling embarrassed. It will feel like a normal adventure – a hike, a flask of tea and a picnic – only this time we will be husband and wife at the end of it!”
