Yuiry & Anastasia - Sligachan Bridge Proposal & Engagement Shoot
25 July 2017

Twilight at Sligachan Bridge - a bunch of velvety roses - a diamond ring...

The perfect ingredients for a romantic surprise proposal.

Yuriy got in touch with me shortly before his trip to Skye and told me of his secret plan to propose to his girlfriend, Anastasia.

The couple met back home in Russia at a Moscow university and, thanks to a twist of fate, both ended up in Scotland together.  Yuriy had already asked Anastasia's parents for their permission, and had secured a beautiful diamond ring.

On the day of the proposal, I set off to Broadford to collect the roses from the lovely Janet, of Simply Flowers, and I lay in wait at the foot of the bridge waiting for Yuiry and Anastasia to arrive.  Incidentally, if anyone doubts my secret agent skills: I managed to pass a bunch of roses to Yuriy without Anastasia noticing!

The look on her face was one of total surprise!  She said "да!"

The pair shared their first kiss as an engaged couple.

The sun was setting and beginning to fade, casting wonderful light on the mountains and the couple themselves.

There are so many great places to shoot at Sligachan.  On the bridge, under the bridge, beside the lochs, on the walls of the bridge...  It's a photographer's paradise.

Below is my favourite shot from Yuriy and Anastasia's engagement session.  I love the blue mountains in the distance, the curve of the bridge framing the scene and the reflection in the tiny pool at the foreground.

Yuriy and Anastasia, it was an honour to be involved in helping plan a secret, romantic and beautiful wedding proposal!  We know you'll be truly happy together.

Many thanks to the lovely teams that helped make the day such a joyful one:
