Daring newlyweds hiked to the top of a mountain on the Isle of Skye to tie the knot.

Kate, 33, and Shaun Mountain, 36, exchanged their vows on the picturesque island with just a lone piper and a photographer.

The couple, from Aberdeen, held their humanist ceremony in the Quiraing area of the island before making their way up The Old Man of Storr and Sligachan Bridge for some breathtaking pictures with photographer Andrew Rae.

The photographs capture the newlyweds embracing on a gale-lashed mountain, with the bride's muddy white dress flowing in the wind.

None of the couple's friends or family knew about the wedding, on March 28, on the island - which they fell in love with after a holiday there.

Mrs Mountain said: "We wanted a very small personal wedding day where we could focus on our commitment to each other.

"We choose Skye as our location and are so pleased we did, it is a very beautiful and majestic place.

"It was perfect for our day, even the wind was great.

"We wrote our vows together, with the help of our lovely celebrant Penelope Hamilton from the Humanist Society Scotland, and we loved that they were personal to us and also to the island where we chose to exchange our vows."

After the ceremony, the couple popped open a bottle of champagne and drank from mugs which had 'I love you to the mountains and back' printed on them.

The bride added: "Not to be too cheesy but it was the happiest day of our lives and we are very glad we chose Andrew to capture it.

"He is a brilliant photographer and was wonderful at coordinating us on the day also."
