It was really lovely to have my image from Heloise and George’s wedding on the Isle of Coll featured on the Lonely Planet blog today! The article was based around ” Wild Weddings” – a guide to where to get married outdoors in the UK.
Their recommendations include places such as Pembrokeshire, Devon, Norfolk and Cornwall, but featuring the Isle of Coll high up on their list of recommended wedding locations. Outdoor weddings in Scotland are legal and you can ge married anywhere in Scotland, but in England and Wales there are still limitations. Ie ; you still have to get married under a permanent structure. Which makes Scotland one of the easiest places for an outdoor wedding amidst fabulous scenery. You can choose from lochs, beaches and dramatic hills and you can essentially name the spot for your ceremony!
The Isle of Coll was highlighted in this article – a dark sky island, no street lights and about 200 residents. I photographed Heloise and Georges wedding on the Isle of Coll on an incredibly beautiful sunny day as they exchanged their vows with the white sandy beach and turquoise waters just behind them, looked on by some local seals. An Cridhe held their reception and dance later on and you couldn’t have asked for a better wedding venue!
