Winter Wedding in Arisaig
This website is for my travel photography. I love traveling and equally love recording my trips with my camera. To pay for my explorations I am a also full time wedding photographer, and have been for nearly 20 years, so I have been lucky enough to visit some amazing parts of my own country, Scotland, as part of my job. Anyway, I wanted to include this recent wedding from December. I know it is a wedding, so you possibly might not think it should be on a travel photography website, but I think it is also a beautiful record of the rugged west coast of the Highlands. What is travel photography if not a means to inspire people to visit and learn some more about a place they’ve never been to?
On the day of Chloe and Jonathan’s wedding the weather was absolutely superb. Extremely cold but amazingly beautiful and there are very few places in the world that I would have rather have been that day than driving north from Glasgow up into the frosty Highlands. I drove up there at about 7am and the whole route was completely deserted. It was just me and my Scandi Folk playlist on the radio. The wedding itself was in a tiny hamlet called Morar, near a slightly larger village called Arisaig about 45 minutes west of Fort William. It was freezing but the views looking out over the sea towards the island of Eigg were superb. I could have stayed taking photographs for days.
