We’ve taken the ‘best bits’ of Alanna and Brianna’s feature-length Isle of Skye wedding video and created this shorter ‘highlights edit’. Our newlyweds specially chose the music.

Elopement to Scotland
Our lovely couple embarked on a remarkable journey from Wisconsin, USA, to the enchanting Inner Hebrides for their intimate elopement, inviting us to be their wedding videographer to film their wedding video. The day unfolded beautifully, a testament to their powerful commitment, transcending mere air miles. Willowbank Cottage in Broadford served as the tranquil setting for the preparations. Amidst the calm and relaxed atmosphere, Mimosa cocktails flowed as Jonathon and I worked as videographers and photographers, capturing the magic on camera.
The emotional peak came during the “first look” in Willowbank Cottage’s garden, where Brianna beheld Alanna in her breathtaking dress. With hugs and kisses exchanged, everyone set off for the ceremony at the awe-inspiring Quiraing, a location carefully chosen by the couple during an earlier exploration.
Unlike conventional choices such as the Fairy Glen, the Quiraing offered a unique, less-trodden path with sublime views and ample parking. Our couple embraced the opportunity for something distinct, eschewing popular ceremony spots, making for a total unique Isle of Skye wedding video.
Away from the usual tourist haunts, the girls embraced the Quiraing’s extraordinary landscapes. The backdrop was nothing short of imposing and inspiring. In a heartfelt humanist ceremony, our newlyweds celebrated their love amidst the jaw-dropping scenery of Trotternish.
The Quiraing, a breathtaking landslip on Skye’s eastern face, offered a space to exist simply, surrounded by nature’s beauty. The ancient Celtic handfasting tradition symbolized their union in a spot on a rugged hilltop that felt magical. As we filmed the Isle of Skye wedding videography, the girls, best friends and soulmates, became one — a truly wonderful sight.
Our newlyweds’ modern love story, blossoming over three years from an online meeting, culminated in this celebration. The Quaich, a vessel symbolizing love and trust, held a sweet whisky liquor that the newlyweds sipped as their first drink together.
Amidst hugs, kisses, and congratulations, the newlyweds posed for group photos before heading to the Uig Hotel for refreshments. Taking advantage of the glorious scenery for this Isle of Skye wedding videography, Jonathon and I shot some drone footage of the newlyweds. This day filming as videographers, filled with emotion, laughter, and breathtaking landscapes, was a testament to this unique love story — a pleasure to capture as their destination videographer. Congratulations to the lovely girls on this extraordinary chapter in their lives.
