An intimate Isle of Harris wedding that took my breath away. <3
Jenny & Hamish used their planned holiday to the remote Hebridean island as an opportunity to get married. With beautiful beaches that rival the Caribbean, it’s no wonder they decided it was the perfect location for their intimate wedding. Their ceremony took place on the golden sands of Scarista beach, overlooking the wild mountains of Harris, with their faithful dog as ring bearer.
With just their closest ones present everyone had a role to play in the makings of the day, including helping bind the couples’ hands together for their traditional Scottish handfasting. After portraits along the coastline, the newlyweds toasted with champagne and homemade cream cake with their families before walking through the sand dunes for a delicious meal at the nearby Scarista House.
My husband joined me at this wedding and we both felt very grateful being so welcomed into such a close knit group and family. Thank you Jenny & Hamish and your families for everything, you were all such a delight to meet and chat to. It’s wonderful to know we’ll be seeing many of you again as Hamish’s sister Philippa and partner Drew announced their upcoming wedding, which I’m honoured to be photographing this spring. :)
The Isle of Harris is a stunning destination for an intimate wedding, and I feel so lucky to call the Outer Hebrides home. We camped over the night of the wedding in our van by the beach to watch the magical pink sunsets and stargaze. Even though I’m from the islands, and no stranger to their charm, I was still left breathless by the magic of Harris and can’t wait for my next wedding there in March.
