Keir and Gemma eloped to the Isle of Skye on 17 May 2014.

Back then, we were pretty clueless about blogging and it seems we didn't do a dedicated blog about this gorgeous couple - so what better time to dust off the archives than now?

The forecast for Keir and Gemma's wedding day was much better in the morning than in the afternoon - so the night before the wedding we decided to photograph the couple before their ceremony so they could have some of Skye's gorgeous scenery in the background before the rain properly set in.

This was one of our first ever shoots at the Quiraing and we thoroughly enjoyed it.  Back in 2014, Skye seemed a little less busy than it is now, so it was a lot easier to find a spot for photographs and capture some memories without having to clone strangers out later!

I remember being so proud of the shot below - where I set Gemma's gown up to mimic the curve of the Quiraing!

To escape from the wind and rain, we headed to Cuillin Hills Hotel - once of Portree's most luxurious, gorgeous hotels.  They've very kindly provided us sanctuary from the rain for many, many subsequent wedding shoots - so a huge shout out to them!

You can see from these photographs why it's one of our favourite venues.  There is so much scope for creativity.

We then headed back to Skeabost Country House Hotel, where Keir and Gemma were staying.  

At this point, Gemma revealed her wedding cake: made entirely by her!

The lower layer was a Malteser cake and the upper a sponge cake.  This was also only the second cake Gemma had ever made in her life.  Wasn't it absolutely stunning?

Gemma had some gorgeous, bridal Hunter wellingtons for splashing about in the puddles with!

We can't wait until we can blog about real weddings - until then, hope you enjoyed reliving one of our favourite elopements from the archives!
