Stunning moment dolphin photobombs newly-engaged couple off Skye

STUNNING pictures capture the moment a leaping dolphin photobombed a newly-engaged couple.

Spencer Troop secretly planned his romantic Scottish proposal to Jenna Pattison for for months.

But the Canadian could never have imagined that a dolphin would steal the limelight moments after Jenna said “yes”.

Spencer, 29, and Jenna flew over from Toronto for a luxury boat trip from Skye.

What Jenna, 25, didn’t realise was that one of their passengers was in fact professional photographer, Rosie Woodhouse, from Love Skye Photography, who was there to capture the special moment.

As the happy couple posed for an engagement picture, a dolphin leapt from the water behind them – perfecting the moment.

Around 30 other dolphins then turned up around them to make their special moment even more magical.

Rosie posted the fantastic picture on her Portraits Skye Facebook page with the caption: “This lovely chap proposed to his lady this evening aboard the Seaflower Skye – and then they were photobombed by a dolphin.

“Surely it doesn’t get any better!”

On social media, Lynne Kennedy said: “You are the dolphin whisperer!”

Jo Blackwell said: “Fantastic shots! And congratulations to the happy couple.”

Mairi Rochead commented: “So romantic perfect entrance by dolphin, well captured by photographer.”

Speaking today, 29-year-old Spencer described the moment as “magical”.

He said: “We were just going sightseeing along the coastline, I was very excited to do it as a surprise.

“It was phenomenal, the dolphins were the icing on the cake.”

The real-estate agent explained how he had a great-great grandmother from Scotland and wanted to retrace his routes.

He explained how he’s fallen in love with the place and will be considering it as a venue for the big day.

He added: “The photographer was so happy I could experience this as there’s so much spirituality on the island.

“It’s just beautiful how the whole community were so nice.

“The guys were phenomenal in making my dream come true, they were my A-Team.”

Ewen Grant who owns Seaflower Skye said he almost had to call the whole thing off.

He said: “Because the weather was so wet and windy I was going to cancel but Spencer said he wanted to go for it.”
