ELOPEMENTS, INTIMATE WEDDINGS AND ANNIVERSARIES ON THE ISLE OF SKYE

At On the Croft we offer uniquely highland Isle of Skye elopement. ‘Elope’- verb (used without object), e·loped, e·lop·ing. – ‘to run off secretly to be married’

Scotland has traditionally been the place to run away together to get married, to escape the stricter rules of other countries …… or parents and family!  This custom was particularly popular in the Scottish Borders with the most famous location being Gretna Green where couples would seek out a fisherman, or a blacksmith who would marry the couple for a couple of guineas or a “dram” (of whisky). Recently, more couples have been coming to Skye to make their marriage vows, either eloping or just for an intimate ceremony by themselves or with a few close friends and family. What could be more romantic and magical than getting married “On the croft” in Edinbane on Skye?

Early in 2017 we hosted out first Isle of Skye Elopement on the croft and at Tigh Dubh and wrote a blog about the experience. The response persuaded us that there are quite a few people out there who would like to come and exchange their vows “on the croft” in Edinbane. So if you would like to Elope get in touch with us and we can help you organise your day ….. in secret of course. We can act as witnesses, we can put you in touch with the local registry service at Highland Council, make links with local churches, local Interfaith ministers or Humanist Celebrants – it’s your choice

“What a lovely cosy place to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary!” - Deborah & Anver

We can also advise on local places to visit, to eat and activities, just ask!

You are welcome to bring your own photographer or here are a couple of local recommendations Lynn Kennedy, Karen Thorburn and Love Skye Photography.

Most photographers have packages + can accompany you to scenic/famous Skye locations if you require …… if the croft is not enough (we won’t be offended ……much!) If you are looking for a celebrant or multi faith Minister try Davina McCluskie or Sonia Eckl- Reil.

If the time of year is right we may be able to gather some wild flowers, for more formal arrangements or simple buttonholes contact Caroles Skye or contact Meadowsweet Croft on Facebook or Instagram for wild flower ideas.

Musicians are notoriously difficult to tie down and organise –we can see who we can rustle up for you. We have good contacts with fiddlers, flautists, and clarsach players.

Contact us today to discuss organising a ceremony with us.
