Hillary and Anthony - what a beautiful elopement!!


Hillary & Anthony came all the way from New Jersey, USA to have their magical castle elopement in September this year along with Hillary's wonderful sister and brother-in-law.


They started their elopement by staying in a lovely apartment in Portree, Isle of Skye. They had a relaxing morning slowly getting ready and having their breakfast prepared by their incredible private chef. Hillary even popped out with the chef to the local fish market to pick up their dinner for the evening - this was such a highlight for Hillary!


After they were ready and pampered by their hair and makeup artist, they made their way to the iconic Quiraing to have a pre-ceremony adventure session and picnic. While taking some epic photos, they met the touring piper, Keith who gave them a wonderful impromptu song!


Then they were on their way to Eilean Donan Castle to have their evening ceremony inside the incredible drawing room. As they came out to have pictures in the surrounding castle grounds, they got to witness a beautiful sunset.


To finish their day, they had an incredible meal back at their accommodation with their private chef accompanied by cocktails with their very own bartender. Ending their night on such a high!


Meet the amazing team that helped create this dream elopement!
