Whether you’re having a destination wedding or elopement, planning an adventure abroad is really exciting. But sometimes there are some less glamorous, more serious things that you’ll need to think about when you’re making check lists and planning the adventure of a lifetime. Sometimes it’s too easy to get carried away with awesome inspiration from Pinterest or Instagram to forget about the legalities of planning a destination wedding. Whether you’re newly engaged and have just started planning, or you’ve been thinking about things for a few months already, here are some of the less glamorous things that you should think about when planning your destination wedding or elopement.
I love reading stories about couples who chose to do things differently for their wedding day. Gone are the days when eloping meant running away to get married in secret.

That’s the beauty about eloping. It can be anything you want it to be. I’ve put together this epic elopement inspiration for adventurous couples who love the outdoors, so you can start dreaming about your perfect wedding day.

Alice & Dom’s wedding at Berggasthaus Grander Schupf was one of my favourite weddings of 2018.

I think these two definitely win the award for the happiest couple of 2018!

This summer one of my goals was to start shooting more “adventure sessions.” A big part of my passion for photography is celebrating authenticity and encouraging couples to look past the idea of a overly styled couple shoot and celebrate the things that they really love.
