Secluded Central Park Elopement

When planning their wedding day, Zach and Robyn knew that they wanted to create an experience with reflected their relationship. They actively elected conventional elements very judiciously, “We chose things not just for ceremony, or convention, but because it was what we wanted or felt reflected our relationship,” Robyn explained.

They decided to have a private ceremony in a secluded part of Central Park, New York, in the north woods. “It rained all day,” said Robyn, “and the sun came out about an hour before we were supposed to arrive. So, not only did we get to enjoy the ceremony as planned, the park was empty. The experience was really special and joyful.”

With a budget of $3,500, they knew they wanted to invest in quality photos and artful photographers in order to have a special memento of the experience. They cut costs dramatically by eschewing a traditional reception with lots of guests to entertain. Robyn made her own flower crown, bouquet and Zach’s boutonniere, and designed sleeves for her Ghost dress to make it more in-keeping with her style and something she felt comfortable in.

Modern & Bohemian Jamaican Beach Elopement

Becca and Mark met on a random night out, and after connecting on Facebook a few days later, there hasn’t been a day since that they haven’t spoken to one another! Even when, shortly after meeting, Mark was stationed in Canada in the army, they still made it work – and Mark proposed on the day he returned to the UK.

Becca had always dreamed of being married on the beach, so despite being completely indecisive by her own admission, this was the one element of their day that was non-negotiable. They spoke to their families about them getting married abroad; unfortunately they were unable to make it, so the couple decided on a whim one day that they should just go ahead and book it anyway, and have a big party for all their friends and family on their return.

A Romantic Pagan Wedding in Glastonbury

Living in Australia, Saskia and Sean met through the emerging alternative music scene in Melbourne in 1982. Sean was in a band, EDEN, and travelled a lot so they lost touch over the years but reconnected in 2016 when he was on tour for his sixth album. They were married in Glastonbury, UK, which they chose for it’s obvious connection to music and Paganism.

“We met again at the end of 2016 when Sean tracked me down”, Saskia explained. “We met a few weeks later, fell madly in love, were engaged the following year and married the year after. Nothing has changed – we were best friends then and remain so. We were destined to be together.”

The inspiration for their wedding was obvious: Their own lifestyle. “In Australia, we live in a small romantic Cornish miner’s cottage built in 1863 in the heart of the Victorian goldfields”, she said. “The cottage backs onto a steep hill with a gold reef running through it. This is what we fondly call our ‘Tor’ and was the setting for Sean’s proposal. Having both visited Glastonbury in the past, the temptation to exchange vows at the Glastonbury Tor seemed logical and destined. Arthurian legend and the history and mysticism surrounding Glastonbury have been a key inspiration for Sean’s music over the years. Our clothes were inspired by the gothic alternative scene we are a part of in Melbourne and the music scene that has been a part of our lives since we met in the eighties.”

Intimate Las Vegas Wedding with a Black Dress & Neon Green Veil!

Christine and Eddie’s elopement is like a lot of the Vegas weddings we feature in so much as they had a quickie quickie chapel ceremony and spent the afternoon waltzing around the city taking fabulous photos. The thing that really made their day stand out to us though was Christine’s INCREDIBLE one-of-a-kind outfit, it’s not every day we see a bride rocking a (home made!) neon green veil!

They were married in August at A Little White Wedding Chapel. “The idea for our wedding was for it to be Vegas, fun and intimate”, said the bride. “We honestly did not use much for inspiration, we wanted to just do our own thing and do it in a way that we would love and remember. We wanted to keep it about us and just have fun with it.”

“I definitely think our outfits were very unique. They are not something that a bride and groom normally wear. I always loved the idea of having a black wedding dress and my green veil was  just green tulle I bought and put in with bobby pins! Eddie’s gold suit went perfect with my black dress and the wedding location. I also had a necklace made that says ‘Edine’, which is the couple name we gave ourselves.”

A Photo Shoot Turned Surprise Wedding!

Brittney and Caleb has a huge wedding planned in downtown Dallas. Almost everything was in place but it was all becoming too much so they decided to cancel and elope instead. Working in the wedding industry as a make up artist, Brittney then had the idea of pulling together a photo shoot with some of her industry contacts where they’d actually get married for real!

Audrey of Something Bloomed, is a florist who Brittney works with often anyway, so she brought her in to help pull together this ‘shoot’. “Audrey and I had already been planning to do a styled elopement shoot together, so after we cancelled our big wedding, we realised that everything we were planning fit in with my vision of a perfect elopement anyway so we decided to just get married FOR REAL and use us instead of models!'”
