Darren & Alison Shiant Isles

Isle of Harris elopement

You will find the Shiant Isles just off the coast of Harris in the outer Hebrides of Scotland. I have wanted to visit the Hebrides for a while and so I was stoked to be able to combine my passion for travelling with my love for capturing weddings. 

Alison and Darren married on a boat called The Enchanted. It was here that they first met when Alison was on a boat trip to the Shiant Isles that was being run by Darren. This truly unique and intimate wedding saw around 30 of Alison and Darren's closest friends gather on three boats out at sea to watch these two say I do. 

After the ceremony Alison and Darren took a boat out to the Shiant Isles and went for a hike to find the only building on the island. When they returned the boat ride back to Harris was full of celebration: bagpipes, an accordion and of course some dancing. 

Back on dry land more friends were waiting, with confetti in hand, ready to celebrate the newly weds. The party continued at the Harris Hotel with dinner, speeches and ceilidh-ing the night away!

Thanks to Darren and Alison for having me along for your wedding day and to Mel for being an awesome second photographer
