Boat-Access, Micro Wedding with Cliff Diving & a Homemade Red Dress

Emily and Jan’s boat-access, micro wedding was pure magic.  Jan wore a vintage suit while Emily was in a hand-dyed, hand-made red wedding gown. Only their closet family and shaggy dog made the Covid-cut guest list for the day which took place on Slocan Lake in British Columbia. They were wed under a lovingly homemade driftwood arch on a private cliff, which could only be accessed by boat. After the ceremony they ate charcuterie and cliff jumped – perfection!

“Our wedding was supposed to be quite the shindig with live bands, a barn dance a couple of days before, scavenger hunts, farm to table catered dinner and more”, Emily told us. “However, when the pandemic hit, we still wanted to get married but were quite limited in what we could do. We wanted a unique wedding venue that was special to us. I grew up surrounded by the beautiful Kootenays, and have always loved the local lake. Our wedding venue was boat-access only, and I believe we’re the first people to ever get married on ‘Ponderosa Point’.”

Micro Australian Beach Wedding with a Silver Sequin Dress

Jac and Matt’s November wedding was, like so many 2020 couples, smaller than they thought it would be. Although they didn’t get the big party of a wedding which they initially planned, after having to reschedule twice, they decided to pair everything back and just elope on a beach instead.

The couple met when they were teenagers but lost contact, only reconnecting in their mid-twenties. They had a ceremony at Sandringham Beach in Victoria followed by a cake cutting and drinks reception at the nearby park. Matt’s mum put together a platter of nibbles and made a cake, and Jac’s sister made a cocktail for everyone.

A Little Bit Country, a Little Bit Rock n Roll And a Whole Lotta Love

Madeleine and James didn’t always plan to elope, but as the story went for so many 2020 couples, a certain pandemic had other plans. With their big celebration ideas scuppered, they went back to the drawing board and decided to do something quintessentially ‘them’ instead. That meant a motorcycle, the open road and a picnic stop overlooking the ocean where they said their vows.

They got ready in their own home, had a first look in their desert-landscaped front yard and included their pups the whole day. The best thing about getting hitched this way is that they were able to only focus on the little things that they felt were important to them.
