A Simple Adventure: An Intimate Glencoe Elopement

Seema is a geologist, so when it came to planning her and Luke’s wedding they couldn’t think of any better place to be wed than in the wild outdoors, surrounded by nature and rocks! 

They wanted a simple, intimate experience for their wedding day so chose to elope to Glencoe in Scotland while they were on holiday in Europe. Sandwiched between adventuring around Ireland and Iceland in May 2019, they kept everything focused on using the beauty of their surroundings to capture some really unique photo opportunities!

Not Another Wedding: A No Fucks Given Las Vegas Vow Renewal

You probably know Sophia Hilton already – bad ass business babe behind the iconic Not Another Salon on Brick Lane. She even has her own series on BBC Three (I’ve definitely not cried watching those makeovers… Oh no ma’am). Married to Jorel for five years, the pair decided it was time to celebrate so zipped over to Sin City for a vow renewal to end all vow renewals.

Look up ‘Rock n Roll wedding’ in the dictionary and there will be a photo of these two right there.

“We met in the back of a taxi, drunk, at 6am”, Sophia told us. “Shortly after, we moved to Madagascar together to volunteer for six months. We then moved to England, got married, opened a hair salon and had a baby. We are now planning to adopt. We decided to renew our vows to have the wild version we couldn’t have with the family the first time. Going OTT together was so fun. Having our reception at Sapphire Strippers was super funny, I mean Jesus, we did everything not be parents for one night and really lived a fantasy life!”

A Sunrise Ceremony for their Second Marriage (to Each Other!) on Assateague Island

Blair met and married her husband Rick when they were both very young, and by their own admission “made a of a mess of it”. They divorced, he married someone else and had two kids, but they managed to find their way back to each other and got re-married in June this year.

“We met in a pool hall when I was home on a break from college”, began Blair. “We dated for seven years and got married. Long story short, we made a mess of it and were divorced soon after. Rick moved on and had two children with his second wife but the relationship didn’t work out. Six years after our divorce, Rick and I decided to have dinner to catch up. I had no idea I still had feelings for him, but once we saw each other, we realised the feelings were definitely still there. We dated for about three years and finally decided to get married again! It seemed we had found our person the first time, the timing was just not right.”

Spontaneous San Francisco Elopement Inspired by the Number 13

The inspiration for Meg and Chad’s San Francisco elopement is unlucky for some – the number 13! “It’s both our favourite numbers,” said Meg, “and we originally had a wedding planned for January 13th, 2019 and were going to San Francisco for the holidays. We were planning our trip out for sight-seeing and things to do, and we look at each other and half joked about how cool it would be to get married in San Francisco! We had said though that we would only do it if we could still have 13 in our anniversary. I logged into the City Hall website, and the only date available for when we were in San Fran was October 30th – 10/30 = 13!”

And so their spontaneous San Francisco elopement was booked! “It’s lucky I had to look up the available dates,” said Meg, “as I had no idea you had to book a City Hall appointment to register separately from the wedding nor that you had to do so far in advance – we’d originally just planned to rock up!”

Soft yet Edgy Vegas Elopement with a Pale Pink Dress

Leanne and Jason just wanted something easy for their wedding day – something that focused on just the two of them, with no pressure other than getting some rock star photos on the way! 

As massive fans of The Hangover, the knew that there was nowhere else in the world that they would rather elope to than Vegas! “We wanted an epic holiday out of it and just to go with the flow,” said Leanne, “so made very little plans and winged 90% of the day. We didn’t really set a budget, knowing that whatever we did it would cost us less than a traditional wedding in the UK and we’d have an epic time to remember!”

Wild at Heart: An Elopement on Safari in the Masai Mara

I can’t breathe. This may just be one of my favourite weddings we’ve EVER FEATURED. Yes, in all my 13 years of writing about weddings I’m not sure a wedding has stolen my heart quite like this one.

Aaliyah and Gabriel had exactly the wedding they wanted – on safari in the Masai Mara over the course of a four day trip. Aaliyah is from Burundi, Gabriel is Tunisian and they both grew up in France but met, fell in love and now live in London together. They wanted to have a wedding that focused on them and the incredible world around them, no fuss, guests or details. So, they decided to elope.
