Autumnal Canyon Elopement with Their Dogs

To get the best photos, you need the best photographer! And that’s just who Riley and Dylan found in Yazi Davis for their elopement in Providence Canyon, Georgia.

“We had the best photographer who was willing to do whatever to get the perfect shot”, they said. “We jumped fences, made a picnic with a charcuterie board, carried dogs and outfit changes, hiked trails, and even got yelled at for drones that weren’t ours. You name it, we did it.”

With spectacular surroundings, the couple hiked to a viewpoint and enjoyed a charcuterie board together, taking in the stunning scenery and enjoying their first moments as a married couple. Importantly, they were able to take their beloved dogs, which they said was their favourite part of the wedding.

Enchanted Forest Wolf Themed Wedding

Ookami and Tyler had a big budget, $100,000, and they went ALL OUT on their enchanted forest theme, even so far as constructing their own enchanted forest inside their venue with the help of the incredible GreenSinner team. The bride grew up working with exotic animals and in conservation, one of which were wolves. Her first name means wolf and is an animal trainer with focus in wolf/wolf-dog/dog and general canine education… So the wolf inspired addition to their theme was just perfect for them.

The bride helped custom designed her own outfit with Arlette’s Custom Bridal for the dress, and Amy Bakenkoya for her one-of-a-kind mask. “Everything about our wedding was custom designed, unique and brought to life by all parties involved”, Ookami told us. “It really brought you into a different world.”

Spontaneous + Rugged Glencoe Covid Elopement

With how much grief and sadness the COVID pandemic caused, it’s lovely to hear the light points shining out from it – Kristin and Dewan actually met because of international borders shutting down. had been working as a university professor in Kabul, Afghanistan, and she was meant to be traveling to a conference in the US via London on 12 March 2020. Instead, international borders started shutting down and she stayed in London. Two days later, she was told that she couldn’t return to Afghanistan as her university compound was going into quarantine. She stayed in England and met Dewan, who is a Londoner, a couple of weeks later. They had both been in successful rock bands in their early twenties, so they bonded over their similar life experiences.

“The reality of planning our wedding was that most of what we did was determined by the practicalities of the pandemic,” Kristin told us. “Being an American working in Belgium during a time when most borders and registry offies and consular services were shut made for tricky international marriage planning. We had to find a place where we could get married, legally, to start with. It was impossible in England due to COVID, but possible in Scotland.” Due to their families being overseas, they figured if it was just the two of them they may as well elope to somewhere spectacularly beautiful, and settled on the Scottish highlands. And then they could think about what they actually wanted the wedding to be like.

Soft & Girly Self-Shot Elopement with a Rock n Roll Edge

With a budget of £2000, a guest list of four (including their two Dachshunds!) and the bride’s own talents as a wedding photographer, Samantha and Antoni set to planning their January elopement. Samantha took many of the photos herself, but The Wedding Bee (the groom’s sister!) snapped the stuff that she couldn’t. Samantha actually loved that she got to edit her own wedding photos too!

The bride’s dress came from ASOS, her jacket was customised by Niamh Designs and Kathryn’s Flower Barn did the flowers. They wanted their day to have a rock ‘n’ roll twist but to still feel girly and vintage inspired.

Intimate, Dog-Lovers Backyard BBQ Wedding

We were the cliché of not looking for love, but we found it…on Tinder!” Kandace and Cade told us. “We knew we wanted a non traditional wedding, but initially were planning a larger affair. However when Covid-19 hit, it was ALMOST a relief that we could have a small wedding without offending friends and family. It had gotten to the point where we almost felt like we were inviting people as an obligation to anyone that met us. As it was, we ended up with a guest list of 40 that have really impacted our lives and will still be in our lives down the road.”

A ‘backyard BBQ but make it fancy’, was the couples’ inspiration for their day. They didn’t care much about things like cake or stationery– but they did care about infusing their personalities into the wedding and throwing a freakin’ awesome party for their loved ones!

“We wanted it completely unique to us,” Kandace continued. “Our flower girl and ring bearer wore unicorn and bear onesies respectively, complete with light up shoes. We had temporary tattoos with our surname on, custom aprons made for everyone so they could get stuck into the BBQ fun without worrying about ruining their attire, even our rings were different; Cade’s is made with dinosaur bone and mine has a London Blue Topaz as the centre stone.”

Patrón, Puppies and a Dip Dyed Dress

Sian and Neil’s wedding featured all the things they love: Tequila, their dogs and the importance they put on their relationship. With a groom that always said he never wanted to get married, when he finally surprised his bride and asked her to be his wife, they knew the only way they were going to do it was entirely on their own terms. That meant ignoring tradition wherever possible.

They were hitched in June at Bysshe Court Barn in Surrey, and because they had their legal register office ceremony a few days before, they had complete freedom when it came to the day. “At the legal wedding we just had my little brother and Neil’s sister as our two witnesses”, Sian explained. “It was very low key and we went for coffee afterwards. We didn’t recognise this as our wedding day, we did it so that it gave us the freedom to do our actual wedding day exactly how we wanted it. We didn’t have to follow any rules or tradition. Therefor we found a celebrant to perform our ceremony in front of all our friends and family on our big day.”
