Eilean Donan Castle- A Highland Wedding venue
Eilean Donan Castle is perhaps one of the most iconic images of Scotland, instantly recognisable and much photographed. The castle sits on an island where 3 lochs meet surrounded by mountains and beautiful Highland scenery. It is hardly surprising than may couples choose to be married at Eilean Donan Castle.
The castle is a wedding photographers dream, with the inside of the castle being both atmospheric and full of great places where wedding photographs can be taken. Outside the castle every way you turn is another opportunity to capture beautiful photographs amidst truly stunning and very Scottish scenery. The castle provides a unique and very dramatic backdrop for any wedding.
During the summer months, whilst the castle is open to visitors, the ceremony takes place from 6.00 onwards, but during the winter months ceremonies can take place any time during the day by arrangement.The walk over the bridge to the castle is truly wonderful.
The actual ceremony can take place in the banqueting hall or outside in the courtyard which overlooks the water and mountains.
If the weather is less than desirable, drinks can be taken in the Billeting room. However, I do love the fact the the weather cannot affect Eilean donan Castle as a wedding venue. The Scottish weather only ever adds to the drama and Highland feel to this wedding venue.
