When you picture your wedding do you imagine a big old party with everyone you love dancing the night away or a small intimate ceremony just you, your love and the people you truly can’t live without? Whatever you’ve dreamed of, the current situation of restrictions placed on the number of wedding guests means that even though an elopement might have never been on the cards you’re now giving it some serious consideration.
I’m a big, big fan of an elopement or micro wedding. The focus is well and truly on the couple getting married. If you’re not having to do the rounds speaking to distant relatives you just have so much more time to spend with your new husband or wife.
An elopement can be as simple or ornate as you want it to be. It can still be rich with personal touches and memorable details. Perhaps you will choose to have napkins hand dyed the exact shade of the ocean of the place you took your first holiday together. Or you might have your vows beautifully handwritten onto piece of fabric that you will keep forever. The world is your oyster!
The backdrop for the ceremony was a simple wall of trees adorned with delicate white flowers & moss.
The dress was a beautiful Pronovias number in a timeless, romantic style. The high neck contrasted with the scoop back and was complimented by soft, feminine lace and a flowing skirt.
The makeup was barely-there pink lips and rosy cheeks with soft, loose curls and a simple plait pulling the hair away from the face.
A truly personal touch was added by the vows that had been handwritten onto a piece of fabric. How beautiful would these look in a bespoke frame, hung on your wall ready to remind you of the promises and commitments made.
