Are you planning to elope? If so, I hope this gorgeous shoot might inspire you. “I really wanted to showcase a different way to do a wedding”, wrote wedding photographer and driving force behind this session,
Joel Bedford. “I pictured this lovely couple driving out into the middle of nowhere to recite their vows. The idea seemed so romantic to me: a red vintage sports car, a ballerina skirt and a couple in love.”
“My good friend Jasmine owns a bridal boutique and happened to have a Monique Lhuillier skirt that fit perfectly into the theme. I paired it with the bandeau top for a twist of romance. I think it’s such a lovely thought to pair something so high end with something laying around in your closet. Effortless romance! The rest was just chemistry between Alex and Samantha… that’s something you can’t make up.

Imagine what your wedding could be like if you had no-one else but yourselves to please. If you could wear what you wanted, invite who you wanted and spend the day exactly as you liked, no questions asked. This doesn't have to be a fantasy and although these images are from a photo shoot rather than a real ceremony, I think they're going to inspire you to look to yourselves for your wedding concept and ideas, rather than getting lost in a world of Pinterest boards and Facebook groups!
