Autumn is is our favourite time to capture Glencoe elopement photography, wee weddings or vow renewals like this one! We love the changing colours, the misty, moody landscapes. So it was an absolute joy to be a part of this adventure back in October. Candace + John were married on the Isle of Skye back in 2014… Five years later, they returned to renew their vows in the country that holds a little piece of their hearts.
We joined Candace + John in their suite at the always-wonderful Glencoe House as they prepared for their ceremony and quickly realised that they were possibly two of the nicest people we’d ever met. The Glencoe elopement photography jobs feel like you’re spending the day with old pals. This was one of those days. With the super-stylish couple ready, a bottle of champagne and ice bucket packed, we headed for the hills.
A location for Candace + John’s intimate vow ceremony hadn’t been decided in advance. Instead we asked them to choose a spot that felt right on the day. Of course, we didn’t realise until it was too late… The ‘spot that felt right’ was the EXACT spot Daniel Craig and Dame Judi Dench made famous in 2012’s Skyfall. Thankfully the two 007 fans who stopped to recreate that scene on the road during the ceremony didn’t disturb things. Candace + John were too in the moment to notice anyway. Otherwise Martyna’s recently-revoked License To Kill might’ve come back into play.
The ceremony itself was deeply personal and emotional. Candace + John shared a moment in prayer before reading their vows, reaffirming their promises, love and amazing connection. After a quick nip of whisky, we hit the road again to capture some more sweet moments with our RENEWlyweds. I took a risk there.
We wandered through woodland, lush greens and quiet streams, before Candace + John cracked open a bottle of champagne. We chased the fading light and raced ominous rain clouds around the winding roads of Glencoe and Glen Etive. We’ll always cherish the day we spent together. It was magic.
