chasing the light, the fun & the feels wherever your love takes us
On the morning of the elopement, I arrived in the dark to meet Ben and his parents. We made our way down to the beach with Haley and picked the spot for the ceremony before I raced back to meet Elle and some more friends and family.
When I received a phone call from Jess’ Mum a couple of days before their Clifftop Elopement was set to happen, I was certainly a little surprised but so excited to potentially be a part of it! Jess and Michael planned to tie the knot on a mountaintop overlooking Patonga.
If you’ve never felt connected to a grand-scale event, eloping might be the right choice for you. Modern elopements are about intimacy, connection, exploring new places and putting what matters most front and centre.
Mature enough to understand that their family would fully understand and embrace their decision to not have them there for the actual ceremony, they were able to throw them a party the following day to celebrate their commitment together.
When Dani and Germán emailed me to say they were planning on Eloping on a cliff edge in the Bouddi National Park on the Central Coast my heart soared. I knew this location was going to be Epic!
Your wedding day is one of the biggest days in your life, and making the conscious decision to do it your way is a liberating one, one that will provide you joy and one that gives you the opportunity to make it completely unique, from the moment you wake to the moment you fall asleep.
