Secret Proposal Isle of Skye Andrew & Georgia

This one was a long time in the making with numerous emails between myself and Andrew. They came all the way over from Australia for a visit to Dunvegan Castle for the gathering of the McLeod’s. Georgia is a family member and has travelled to Skye before to attend the event although this time she was in for a big surprise! Andrew had chosen Neist Point as the special place he wanted to get down on bended knee and propose. I was hidden behind a rock as they passed by and through photos we had exchanged before the date were able to recognise one another. As you will see on the slideshow he knew who I was and I followed at a discreet distance until he chose the spot and the emotional part began.  She said ‘Yes’ straight away. What a great afternoon we had together and the weather was kind enough to allow us to take some more images along the pathway..

I had a good year in 2023 on the Isle of Skye photographing Secret Proposals and Elopements. Couples have travelled from all over the world to Skye with the express purpose of the future Groom proposing to the future Bride. In all cases I have to hide myself behind whatever bush I can find and record the event from a long telephoto lens until the moment she says ‘I will’. So far there hasn’t been one that has said ‘No’ thankfully. Then after a lot of hugging and kissing and maybe some tears of joy my presence is revealed and we then continue capturing momentous images.   As you can imagine all this takes a lot of planning and many secret emails or messages between myself and the Groom. I cover the Scottish Highlands and Islands for Wedding Elopement Engagement and Secret Proposal photography and videography. My aim in every session I undertake is to make everyone feel relaxed, have fun, and capture the real person and to present images that delight.

 

 

Secret Proposal for Andrew and Sheridan Isle of Skye

Andrew was in touch with me some time before their planned visit coming over to the Isle of Skye for their Secret Proposal. Of course Sheridan had no idea what Sheridan was proposing to do, forgive the pun! We had a good chat about where to go so that I could hide reasonably well to take those so important photographs when Sheridan would say ‘I will’. So we decided on the waterfalls of Lealt and then a little bit further up the road to Staffin Beach. View full post »

Mathew & Gemma Secret Proposal Isle of Skye

When Mathew contacted me to say he wanted to arrange a secret proposal to his girlfriend Gemma I was really excited. He then told me he wanted to do it at Neist Point in November. Now I don’t know if you have ever been to Nest Point but it is a very exposed site. From March to October it is full of tourists which make it difficult to isolate a couple for their pictures. In the winter it can be extreme and if you are close to the edge of the cliff more than a little dangerous. We talked it through and Matthew really wanted that location so we decided to go for it.
