Just a couple months ago I wouldn’t have thought that I would get to be an Isle of Harris elopement photographer in such a strange and uncertain time of a global pandemic. Till the very last few days before the date of Tina and Graeme’s elopement we weren’t sure if it was actually going to happen or if it would have to be postponed like many other weddings this year.
Thankfully it turned out that we have a green light. Everything was ready to go. After a year of preparations I finally got a chance to meet and join Tina and Graeme on the Isle of Harris as their elopement photographer. The fact that they decided not to tell anyone about their elopement made the whole adventure even more exciting and romantic.
They both were getting ready at The Sheep Station which is a very cozy cottage with amazing Atlantic views. Then we headed straight to the most picturesque beach on the Island where the ceremony took place. Without a doubt, Luskentyre Beach with miles of white sand and green-blue water has its own unique character. It is just perfect for a stunning backdrop for elopement.
This gave us a great opportunity to lay back even more after the ceremony and go for a relaxed walk along the beach to take some more pictures. Luckily, we didn’t even get a drop of rain which was not obvious at all considering the weather forecast for that day. Afterwards, we decided to leave Luskentyre Beach and head straight to another one for more pictures. We then got back to the cottage where Tina and Graeme video called their family to announce great news. How’s that for a surprise!
At the end of the day when the sun started to set we quickly jumped into a car and drove to the beach for the last few pictures.
It was an amazing elopement at an amazing place. I’m even more happy knowing that Tina and Graeme did elope the way they always wanted to: abroad, on the island and on the beach. I’m sure they couldn’t choose a better place for that than Isle of Harris.
