Where to elope?

you can have an elopement almost anywhere

There is an infinite amount of options. Maybe a bit too many. Start thinking of what kind of surroundings you prefer and what climate you want. Maybe you want to combine your wedding day with your honeymoon. I (of course) recommend considering the photography when you choose the place you want to get married in. My suggestions include: Namibia, Norway, Mauritius, Banff, Rockies , Faroe Islands, Svalbard, Morocco, Montenegro, Costa Rica, Mexico, Seychelles, Victoria falls, Scotland, Santorini, Ireland, Iceland, Bali, Hawaii, Caribbean.

Make sure you take care of this beforehand

Paperwork and formalities

After you decide on where you want to elope, check out what requirements that country has. If it seems difficult you can always do the formalities in your home country and do vows and photos in your chosen place.

Consider the surroundings

season, weather and details

An elopement can be done so SO much simpler than a wedding. There’s far less to worry about, and you are free to do things however you want. But – it can be really nice to make more of an effort than the bare minimun. Season matters a lot when it comes to colors and light- not to mention the weather. In addition it can be fun to choose your florals and dress based on the setting you’ve decided on. Even though you two are the focus it can be made so beautiful and memorable. And don’t forget about the photos!
