Inchcolm Island wedding with a boat trip on the Maid of the Forth

When Laura and Keith told me they were planning an Inchcolm Island wedding I was obviously quite intrigued. Although I was aware you could take the Inchcolm Island ferry, also known as the Maid of the Forth, for a day trip I didn’t know you could get married there too! For those who don’t know, Inchcolm Island is situated in the Firth of Forth downstream from North and South Queensferry. Travelling to Inchcolm Island involves a brisk 30 minute boat trip. For weddings the ferry is booked out exclusively meaning you and your guests can enjoy some fantastic sea views while passing under the famous Forth Bridge. All in all, it certainly makes for a unique wedding venue!

Laura and Keith’s Inchcolm Island wedding went to plan perfectly. They enjoyed late summer sunshine and calm seas for the crossing. Keeping with wedding tradition, the bride and groom are kept separate for the outgoing journey so as not to sneak a peak of each other. In addition, there is also a bar on board which certainly went down well with the male contingent of the wedding party. Their young son also enjoyed a wee shot of steering the boat courtesy of the captain! After a touching ceremony it was, however, time to return to the mainland. Laura and Keith then held an evening reception in nearby Dunfermline at the Carnegie Conference Centre. The band certainly kept everyone entertained with a eclectic mix of music including some impromptu beat bopping from the lead singer.

Below are some of my favourite images from the day and I cannot wait to return for another Inchcolm Island wedding in the near future.
