A Casual Island Adventure Elopement with a Black Dress

Ben and Paige knew they wanted to go somewhere tropical for their March wedding, but aren’t really beach-wedding types. “We do enjoy hiking though, “ the bride told us, “so we settled on a trip to St John in the Virgin Islands as we knew we’d get what we wanted from there. We reached out to Island Mike and asked if he knew any cool trails that would take us somewhere beautiful and remote, and he delivered!”

Bohemian, Magical and Fairy-esque Wedding on Lokrum Island

Lucy and Nick’s summer island wedding in Dubrovnik pulled inspiration from magic and folklore, added it to musical, artistic and popular culture references, and basically showed us all how you do a destination wedding of dreams. They even had photos taken on the Iron Throne! Wedding goals and then some.

They were destined to be together, with their creativity at the heart of it all, “We met in our university art gallery, while Nick was doing a masters in music and I was doing a degree in contemporary art”, said Lucy. “Nick asked me if I’d like to work with him on a project. I agreed, and together we created a contemporary opera The Life and Times of Virgil Edicere. The music was composed by Nick and the visuals created by me. It was during that creative process that we began to adore each other. I went travelling around California for the summer, and whilst I was there I had my fortune told; the cards said that love, sweet love, was coming my way. As soon as I stepped off the plane, Nick came to visit me, and we did indeed fall in love, sweet love.”

And this magic is very much present in their wedding day style.

Black Sand Beach Ceremony in Azores with Everyone in Masks

When it came to their wedding day, Twyla and Gary knew they wanted to do it somewhere beautiful to celebrate their nine years of being together. They also want want the day to be about timelines and details. They had no cake, no bridesmaids and only used wild flowers collected from the local area. They just wanted to enjoy the day together and be present in the moment, so thatʼs exactly what they focused on.

“As a photographer myself I have attended enough traditional weddings to know that I didnʼt want this day to be traditional,” began Twyla. “The details didn’t matter to us and we didn’t want to have to follow a timeline on the day. We just wanted to enjoy our day and be in the moment. Being together was the most important part and Azores in Portugal provided more than any flowers and mason jars ever could. Our wedding was about adventure, happiness and love.”
