Michael and Jenna, from England, have known each other since they were three! They decided to go to Italy to elope on the pebble beach below the cliffs of Punta Aderci in September. They stayed in Abruzzo for four days with three of their friends.
Having a destination ceremony meant they hired the wedding planners at
Creamano to pull everything together for them. “Our wedding was intimate and so sweet”, they told us. “The pandemic made everything more complicated but we were determined to do what we wanted and to be ourselves. We really appreciate everything our wedding planner and photographer did for us.”
During the ceremony they exchanged a sweet promises to each other by reading a nursery rhyme which Jenna had written while they were at school. Afterwards, they did some photos on the beach, a dip in the ocean and then met up with their friends for dinner at a local restaurant.

Button Moon, Moomins, Rainbow Petticoats and a Wedding in a Cave: Caroline & Johnny
June 12, 2012
When wedding photographer Sassy of Assassynation told me she'd booked a wedding through a feature on my site last year I was super thrilled. However my excitement was pretty much quadrupled when she them told me the bride was wearing a short dress... with a rainbow petticoat... with glittery turquoise leopard print wedges and ankle socks... oh yes and that they were getting married in a cave. I think died and went to wedding heaven right about then.
Caroline & Johnny were married on a Monday, on the 14th May this year. The ceremony was small - just the two of them, the celebrant and Sassy and her husband Ian, who not only photographed the event but acted as witnesses. The ceremony was at Carnglaze Caverns in Cornwall. "One fabulously weather proof venue!" the bride laughed. "Subterranean lake, 500 candles and really dangerous steps for the clumsiest bride. What could possibly go wrong?"
Intimate Maui Elopement: Monica & Jason
March 16, 2013
With just $6500 to spend, Monica & Jason knew they wanted a small wedding. So instead of the going down the traditional route, they flew themselves and their daughter to Maui for an intimate beach wedding. "We didn't have an actual budget in mind", Monica began. "My parents gifted us $5000 to put towards our wedding and we spent a bit ourselves too. In total the wedding was around $6500, which doesn't include our rings. What it did include was everything needed for the wedding plus return airfare from Vancouver BC for three of us, lodging in Maui and car rental. Our thoughts behind what we were going to spend was this: we wanted to have what made us happy within reason."

No matter how many weddings I feature, or how many cool, quirky and original décor and details I see, it is always the simple and emotional, small weddings, that really slay me. Elopements, intimate ceremonies, the great outdoors. Anna and Jarrah did exactly this, travelling from their home in Australia to a beach in France, with just their parents and very best friends in attendance.
Remote Coastal Elopement: Simon & Leanne
September 12, 2013
Planning a wedding is bloody hard work and sometimes it can all get a bit too much. I'm sure you've stressed a little over flower arrangements, worried if your bridesmaids will like their dresses or navigated your way through more family issues than you even knew you had. Big weddings are wonderful occasions but I'm yet to meet a couple who haven't wondered at some point if that crazy idea to elope was really so crazy after all.
Addams Family Inspired Elopement in Italy

Diana and Jason had already booked a month long holiday to Europe together, when a friend suggested the idea of eloping. Straight away they knew it was perfect for them! Neither of them wanted a huge middle-eastern wedding (which is the tradition in Diana's family) so their month long holiday turned into a pre and post wedding honeymoon!

The key words for this wedding are light, magic, and style. With their guests dressed in black, and the couple both in designer label white, plus having Mount Etna and the sea as their view, Giuliana and Buccio pulled off a frankly stunning looking day.

If the idea of a small elopement, with just a few special guests there with you sounds like wedding heaven to you, then you're going to adore today's real wedding. The couple are super private, hence wanting to marry in this way. They only invited very close friends and family members.
