Chris Oman and Rebecca MacDonald were tying the knot in Scotland—with photographer Michael Carver taking pictures.
Michael was packing up when his partner texted him to say that the Northern Lights could be seen over the venue at Bogbain Farm.
Moving at breakneck speed, he asked a guest to fetch the bride and groom in the middle of their wedding afterparty while he set up for what he knew could have been the chance of a lifetime.
“I know how quickly this can come and go so I shouted at some poor guy who was smoking outside to quickly run in and grab the bride and groom whilst I set up my camera,” Michael said.
“I could see the skies flaring up and was even able to see the bright colors with my eyes. We had found Chris but Rebecca was no place to be found. Eventually someone dragged her from the dance floor and I had a few seconds to try and grab a shot while the Northern lights pulsed brightly.”
The newlyweds raced outside and got into position before the lights faded into twilight just seconds after Michael had taken a set of photos.
Newly married couple Chris and Rebecca were thrilled with their photos, which added to the already-magical night.

“There had been rumors during the evening that there may be Northern Lights but no sign before Michael was leaving,” said Rebecca. “We’d said our goodbyes when I heard people shouting for me and saying the Lights were out. Michael got Chris and I in the perfect position and the photos have come out amazing.”
“It was just an unexpected but amazing way to celebrate our wedding! We both feel so lucky to have seen such a spectacle and have Michael capture it so beautifully.”
