Documentary Inspired Las Vegas Elopement

There’s something about a Las Vegas wedding that I just can’t get enough of, and Tamara and Chris’ November wedding is no different. With a budget of £7500 they flew to Sin City from he UK and had the Rock n Roll elopement of their dreams.

They had their ceremony in the chapel at The Wynn. “Our wedding was an elopement done our way”, began the bride. “We wanted to make it all about us, travelling and seeing new places together and making amazing memories. The inspiration for our wedding was our photographer’s documentary style photography.”

The bride tried on lots of dresses, but it was only after she asked for Chris’ advice that she was finally able to find the dress of her dreams. “One of the most unique things about our wedding was that Chris chose my dress! I went to six different wedding dress shops on my own and with friends and did not go get that ‘wow’ from any of them other than the one I put a reserve on. The day before I was due to go back and pay for the rest of the dress and collect it, Chris was in the bath and I sat next to him on the floor and showed him all the photos of myself in all the different dresses I had tried on. The ones I thought he would like, he hated, and the ones I thought he would hate he loved! He said he really disliked the dress I had actually reserved so I decided to cancel it.”

Spiritual Seductive Tulum Elopement Inspired by Mother Nature

Are. You. Ready?

Jacqueline and Dougal’s elopement in Tulum was next level. I don’t often use the word ‘sexy’ because it usually makes me want to vom, but this wedding was undeniably sexy in a brilliant and powerful way, harnessing the earth’s natural energy for their traditional Mayan ceremony.

“Our theme was Mother Nature and essentially being tied to the earth and the universe.” Jacqueline explains. “It was held at the beautiful Cenote Azul by Playa Del Carmen, which was so dreamy and special. As soon as we arrived at the cenote, we were instantly calm and overwhelmed with joy and happiness. It’s such a spiritual place and there was so much good energy.”

Turquoise & A LED Light-up Bouquet: A Winter Elopement in Cornwall

There’s a special place in Lora and James’s hearts for December 21st as it’s the date James officially asked Lora out, and four years later on that same day he proposed. So of course it had to be their wedding day, too! They eloped on their fifth anniversary and married in Cornwall. The whole day was about them just being together and really feeling the love. Also there was a cat at their wedding, which we know you will just love!

There wasn’t a particular theme, said Lora, “But I do love turquoise, so I made sure we were both wearing some! We both absolutely love Cornwall, so when we decided to elope we knew exactly where we’d be heading. As soon as we found Lower Barns, we knew it was the venue for us! We’ve been to Glastonbury Festival for the last five years, and from the photos we saw of Lower Barns we knew it would have a similar magical, colourful, relaxed atmosphere that we love, but in the most high-end, five star way imaginable (with no mud in sight). It certainly didn’t feel like the end of December being surrounded by venue owners Janie’s beautiful styling and Mike’s awesome prop constructions!”

Intimate Bohemian Beach Side Vow Renewal in Gran Canaria

Fittingly for last week’s heatwave, we have Kenzi and Joel’s romantic beach elopement on the blog today, and it is HOT. They took to Gran Canaria to renew their vows in an intimate ceremony, the photos of which are an absolute bohemian dream.

Gran Canaria Wedding Photographer SuperWeddings accompanied them to the beach to capture the passion between the couple. Having first met them at a workshop, Sebastian says “Everyone was so excited at how cool they looked. Kenzi was just stunning, and Joel had the coolest beard and tattoos on the island for sure.”

Private Cornish Barn Elopement with Netflix Before Bed!

Looby and Ryan’s big day was not at all traditional but incredibly personal, and that’s why we love it so much. The couple eloped to beautiful Cornwall, with a ceremony in a refurbished rustic barn with just the registrar and officiants as their witnesses, followed by their ‘reception’: A night in in a beautiful cottage at the venue. We love their whole attitude towards wedding planning and how true to themselves they stayed – Looby and Ryan, we salute you!

The whole day was held at The Green Cornwall. For the ceremony, the refurbished barn was made to look intimate with a drawn curtain and fairy lights hanging from the beams. Looby and Ryan walked from their cottage to the venue together and then down the aisle together to Old Pine by Ben Howard (oh, the tears!) Afterwards they walked out to Year 3000 by Busted. Mark from Evolve Photography took their portraits with their two pugs and the bump, and then followed on with their intimate reception where they played battleships back at their cottage whilst a professional chef cooked them a three course meal. They then had a bath and watched Netflix. Is that the dream or is that the dream?!

Motorcycle Elopement with the Bride & Groom in Double Denim!

When it comes to bridal fashion, I think it’s safe to say that in a lot of instances, there’s a lot of the ‘same old same old’ about. So when I see a bride rocking an outfit that is truly unique, and a proper representation of her everyday style I get very excited indeed. Enter: Jamie and Frank and their  incredible elopement! Both motorbike obsessives who wear denim day in day out, it was the obvious choice for their wedding day too! Both of them wore double denim, the bride in all-white and the groom in all-black!

Deciding to elope meant they didn’t need to worry about the budget as they didn’t pay to feed anyone or decorate anything! In fact the only thing they really splashed out on was the photographs. “Our photos were the one thing we splurged on, and we were glad”, said Jamie. “Everyone always says not to skimp on finding and hiring a talented photographer and I totally agreed with that mindset. Also, since we eloped, it was really important to my mum to have good quality photos of the event. She wanted to feel like she was there when she looked at the photos.”
