On this day...  28 August 2013, we shot our very first Duisdale House Hotel wedding.   

Samuel and Ruth almost never met.  Sam used to live in the village Ruth grew up and their families knew each other, yet they weren't even aware of each other's existence! Thankfully, Sam came to work at the same place Ruth was working, and they were able to ignite their romance.

Ruth kept her style simple but elegant, letting her natural beauty shine and keeping frills to a minimum.  But there was nothing minimalist in their obvious love for each other. 

The Isle of Skye was an obvious choice for their wedding, since Ruth's mother lived on a similar Scottish island and Sam had worked at Duisdale House Hotel in south Skye.

The theme of their wedding was blue and they incorporated it into the details, such as Sam's handkerchief, tie and blue polka dot socks!  Ruth's mother also bought a bouquet for Ruth, with blue sea holly sprinkled throughout the white.  The sea holly was also echoed in Sam's boutonnière.

Sam and Ruth's elopement was featured on the blog, Simply Elope.  Sadly, the elopement blog is no longer in existence but it was one of the first weddings we ever got featured!

Ruth's gorgeous bouquet came from Donald at Loch Duich Plants.  This was one of our first time working with his designs and they are just gorgeous to photograph!

A significant detail on the day was the vintage saucepan used to hold Sam and Ruth's bottle of Dom Perignon champagne.  When Ruth's father and step-mother married, the hotel had run out of ice buckets!  All they had left was a distressed saucepan!  Sam and Ruth incorporated that saucepan in their day, thus making it something of a family tradition!

Duisdale House Hotel is one of Skye's most sumptuous and luxurious hotels.  It's gorgeous inside - full of little nooks and crannies that make for perfect photographs!

Sam and Ruth's favourite season is autumn, but the weather was very summery for their wedding.  We spied a tree, the leaves just beginning to show their colours, and were glad to encorporate that into the photographs and then work in the rest of the Hotel's lovely grounds.
