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.
What I loved most about this wedding was the relaxed vibe. The first time I met Rebecca, the bride, she told me that one of the main reasons they had chosen Pacific Palms as the location for their wedding was because they didn’t have a curfew to finish up the reception. They were able to dance around and party until whatever time they pleased.
Set in the countryside of the NSW Central Coast at Yarramalong Valley Farmstay. Meaghan and Phil’s Rustic setup blew my mind. Think vintage furniture around one long banquet table under fairylights and the stars!
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.
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.
