Michael & Ann's Wedding in the Scottish Highlands

Wander across and around the world a few times and one of the biggest things you take away is that there are millions of people on our tiny, spinning planet. It's crazy to think how many of us find the other half of us we choose to spend the rest of our days with, but Michael and Ann's story is even more obscure and incredible. One from the Highlands (Scotland) and one from Bangkok (Thailand) and they met when they separately moved to Sydney (Australia) where they live today. Talk about roaming around the world and having friends everywhere you go. Their wedding was such a beautiful example of this. 

Their Friday in July was bright and beautiful. The wedding itself was nestled in the Highlands of Scotland, Michael's home, surrounded by friends and family from around the world, with friends and family from both Australia and Thailand flying out to support the two of them. Eilean Donan Castle in the Kyle of Lochalsh is known as the most photographed and most romantic castle in all of Scotland, and it's easy to why it was a clear choice for where Michael and Ann wanted to say their vows. They held a backyard wedding reception at a historic Scottish home on a loch a few miles away, with a roast pig and dancing on the lawn. Dreams all around. 

I'm so thankful I was asked to be Michael and Ann's wedding photographer in Scotland. The Highlands + Isle of Skye have been on the top of my travel bucket list for years so I was thrilled to make the trip, but spending a few days with all of their friends and family made everything even sweeter. They were the ones setting up the reception tent, cooking and putting out the food, running all the errands so that everything went smoothly. These people love each other dearly and to me, that's the best part of any wedding I'm ever a part of.
