Don’t Panic!: A Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy Meets Icelandic Elopement Adventure

Cat and Tom’s elopement was all about the detail – but the right kind of detail! They eloped in Iceland in October.

Cat told us, “We had a loose Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy theme (my favourite book, growing up), with travel and adventure at the heart of the day. The bouquet and buttonholes were all made from a copy of the book, along with Tom’s pocket square being the front cover. We had a small line from the book in our vows, and of course, the mantra of planning an elopement during a pandemic being ‘DON’T PANIC!’”. 

Cat realised that the more traditional details didn’t matter, telling us, “There were so many little things that I’d rushed out and bought to ensure the day was ‘perfect’, and when it came down to it, most of them were forgotten and it had zero effect on the day. I forgot I’d packed pearl hair clips and false eyelashes or that I’d planned to paint my nails, because those were the things I thought ‘brides had to do’. It made no difference to the day, as we were too busy enjoying ourselves, and it definitely won’t be something we’ll look back on and sulk over!)”

The Addams Family Meets a Rockabilly Las Vegas Elopement

Kennedy and Mitch were set on a quick and simple elopement and they chose Las Vegas as the place to do it. Kennedy told us, “No vows, no music, just us, Breena our officiant, Brandi our photographer and all our family and friends on livestream.”

They chose The Neon Museum in for their ceremony, a gorgeous venue with plenty of scope for Brandi to take some incredible shots. Vegas has so many spots for epic photos, and the couple were keen to get to as many as possible.

The couple did their day completely their own way, citing their theme as ‘The Addams Family meets Rockabilly’ with a DIY coffin ring box and fake flowers from the craft store to create a bouquet. Kennedy’s ring was her Great Aunt’s and they celebrated with pizza afterwards.

Self-Solemnised Elopement in The Colorado Mountains

Jordan and Isaiah wanted an intimate wedding. Having met very young and not realised the crushes that they had on each other for many years, they reunited and fell in love over a decade later. Their elopement was an adventure, with no traditional wedding planning.

They chose to self-solemnise their ceremony too, which means they didn’t have an officiant. This is actually legally recognised in in Colorado too making it the perfect extra-intimate choice!

“We wanted to have time together, just us. We’re from and live in Ohio so we wanted an escape and both have love for the mountains. We had our first look and setup a picnic in the woods with pizza and beer. We then self-solemnised (married without an officiant) in the mountains and hiked to a explore a cave and finished off our day dancing in the rain to our wedding song Tennessee Whiskey by Chris Stapleton.”

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.

Laidback Lakeside Wedding in Germany

Another victim of Covid regulations, Lucas and Jessica’s wedding had to take place with only a few family guests, meaning their photographer couldn’t attend. But they made up for it with a fun barefoot photo shoot complete with their wedding decorations, flowers and smoke.

Jessica told us how difficult it was to even get married, “We wanted to get married for our souls, but the fight against German immigration made it so hard for us. There were so many papers, but all the planning really connected us – it bonded us really strongly and was emotional in a good way!”

Boho Cornish Elopement with a Secret Beach

Strip a wedding back to basics; a couple in love and somewhere to wed, and you might find that an elopement suits you perfectly. Hollie and Adam wanted their day to feel like a runaway fairytale, so they escaped to St Just in Penzance on the stunning Cornish coast, with the focus solely on the two of them.

Writing their own vows made their ceremony incredibly special. With just the two of them, their words were for each other only, and they were then able to spend the rest of the day together, exploring Cornwall and taking some epic photos.
