In 2013, we had the pleasure of hosting a charming couple from Germany, Karin and Paul, who, it would seem, fell in love with the Isle of Skye. We were delighted when we received a reservation request from them at the beginning of this year detailing their desire to get married on the island.
After a few emails planning the event, we were reacquainted with Karin and Paul during the first week of May. Even the unusually poor May weather couldn’t dampen the couple’s spirits as they were latterly joined by their good friends and ‘witnesses’, Sonja and Karsten. The wedding itself took place in an enchanting location under some trees in Fairy Glen. The ceremony, conducted by the Rev. Sonja Ganga Eckl-Riel, an Interfaith Minister and Celebrant based in Skye, was a beautiful and emotional occasion and the memories of this day will live with everyone who attended. We wish Karin and Paul all the happiness in the world and hope we will meet again in the near future.
PS Paul, who decided to wear the traditional Scottish wedding attire (Isle of Skye tartan) for the ceremony, later confessed how much he enjoyed wearing the kilt 😉
