Pink Dream Las Vegas Elopement with a Mirrored Wedding Dress

Mady and Frankie met while Mady was going for a job interview a little over 6 years ago. “I happened to notice a really cute guy making smoothies at the bar of the interview,” she told us. “Later that afternoon I got offered two two almost identical job roles – of course I took the one with the cute guy, and he’s now my husband!”

They initially had a bigger Las Vegas wedding planned pre COVID-19 with a budget of $20,000, but for their elopement they ended up spending around $5,000. This included everything from photographer, outfits, accommodation, right down to fuel for the car.

An Accidentally Autumnal Woodland Ceremony Arranged in 24 Hours!

Dan and Cara’s woodland wedding ceremony was pulled together in just 24 hours! Having their big summer wedding postponed for obvious reasons, they changed their plans to have a smaller wedding in November. However, then a second lockdown was announced just two days before they were due to get married, it meant their previously COVID-secure wedding was now a no-go too! With the help of the wedding planner at Cheshire Woodland Weddings, the registrars and their families, they re-arranged everything in just one day and were able to have their 13-guest ceremony on November 7th.

“Our wedding theme was ‘accidentally autumnal’,” the bride told us. “Our original wedding was due to be in May, so it would have been spring/summer vibes, however the way it all turned out was absolutely perfect to reflect us. We had originally booked a different venue, however when COVID hit and we had to postpone, it was fate that we looked at alternative options and found the woods! Both of us love nature and adventures so Cheshire Woodland Weddings was the most perfect place for us to get married.”

Sunset, Desert, Vegas Elopement with a Statement Black Crown

Emmanuelle and Terence had originally planned to get married at her parents house in Canada. With the global pandemic, it was impossible to have their families reunited and keep all their guests safe, so they decided to push back the family and friends wedding and elope. After three-years long distance, the couple decided that they couldn’t wait any longer to get married and live together. They now reside in Delaware with Emmanuelle’s son, their pet cat and newly adopted puppy. The most important thing for them was being together as a family. 

Inspired by the wonderful red and cream colours, they chose Red Rock Canyon in Las Vegas for their July elopement. Being long distance, the couple employed Cactus Collective Weddings to handle the whole thing, from photography to planning, location scouting to florals.

A Spontaneous & Sparkly Las Vegas Love Affair

Due to the big fat C-word, Jen and Mike’s music festival-themed Lake Tahoe wedding had to be pushed back to 2021. But, like so many other couples in the same boat, they didn’t want to wait to be married so they decided to head to Vegas with a small group of friends and family for some classically Vegas nuptials.

The couple actually met while Mike was on a road trip and so, living 1,700 miles apart, they did the long distance thing for the first three years of their relationship. They would drive the sprawling desert drive that linked them to visit each other so it was rather fitting that they had a desert ceremony in the end.

A Forest Witch Elopement with a Black Wedding Dress

Originally budgeting $5,000 for their June wedding, as they had to change their plans due to the pandemic, Sayer and Philip actually only ended up spending $2,000! They were inspired by nature and the most important part for them was the ceremony. It was held at Big Bear National Forest in California and they hired their friend of seven years, Priestess Shannon Farley-Schonland, to officiate.

“We bonded over witchcraft, the Haunted Mansion and the Night Circus”, Sayer told us. “I decided long ago, well before I ever knew I would meet Philip, that Shannon would be the person to perform my handfasting and marriage ceremony.”

Tattoo Artists’ Causeway Coast Elopement

Tattoo artists Dom and Char flew to Ireland to have their September elopement it Cushendun Cave in Northern Ireland. They didn’t have a theme or anything in terms of props or styling other than their outfits and the bride’s bouquet.

The ceremony was just the two of them, their photographer, videographer and celebrant. “It was amazing, Char said, “the waves were crashing against the rocks whilst we said our vows and we could smell the sea. The whole day was so perfect from beginning to end.”
