When you choose to elope, you’re choosing to do something wild, something adventurous, something unique. And nothing says wild, adventurous and unique like Greenland. I’m in love with this rugged Arctic island for many reasons. Its scenery is breathtaking, the hiking is amazing, and icebergs are a part of everyday life. But the best thing about Greenland is its remoteness. In comparison to the crowds in Iceland, you can go for weeks in Greenland without seeing another soul. If you’re looking to create a beautiful and meaningful adventure with just the two of you, Greenland could be the ideal place to do it. Here is my guide for adventurous couples planning their dream elopement in Greenland.

So you and your partner can have an adventure-filled date night from the comfort of your own home.

A complete guide for anyone wanting to plan an elopement wedding in Norway. Learn how to get there, when to go, how to get married in Norway and find out about some of the most stunning locations to say your wedding vows.
I usually hate likening things to Disney movies, because the whole Disney princess thing isn’t really my scene (shocking, I know!). It sounds so cliche, but everything about this winter wedding day was just magical. It felt like a modern-day Disney fairytale, where two incredibly amazing women stood in front of one another and promised to love each other unconditionally from that day forward, walking hand-in-hand through all of life’s adventures together, wherever they might lead them.
If you are picturing yourselves going to a big adventure to somewhere wild and beautiful, the Dolomites in Italy might just be the dream destination you’ve been searching for. The Dolomites have it all; spectacular views, adventure and alone time that you have been craving for. If you’re looking to fill your lungs with fresh mountain air and your spirit with adventure on your wedding day, then the Dolomites have so much to offer. They are home to some of the most breathtaking alpine scenery in Europe, maybe even the world (although I am pretty biased)! Living in the Tyrol region (which borders the Dolomites) for almost 10 years, I’ve discovered some of the most beautiful locations that would be perfect for your elopement. Whilst some of these locations are known worldwide for their stunning beauty, many of these locations are off-the-beaten-path, and more of a local secret. Some are easy to reach and others require a bit of effort, but the views you’ll see when you get there will make it well worthwhile. This Dolomites elopement guide is here to help you plan the most incredible day of your lives.
Anna & Jon’s winter elopement in Hallstatt was one of the most intimate and romantic celebrations of love and their adventurous spirits. Nothing was going to stop them from saying their vows to each other outside in the snow. Not even a snowstorm!
In winter above the arctic circle, there’s a phenomenon known as polar night, where the sun doesn’t rise above the horizon, bringing almost 24-hours of night. Christina & Dustin chose to brave the arctic weather and elope in the Lofoten Islands in northern Norway during the polar night. Even with only a couple of hours of twilight, these two had the adventure of a lifetime exploring this enchanting place.
Jeremy emailed me a few months before a trip to Europe with his girlfriend Katrina. The main part of their trip was a rail trip through Switzerland. But since discovering Lago di Braies on Instagram, Katrina really wanted to make a detour at the start of their trip to visit this iconic lake in the Dolomites. They looked at their options and decided that they could make it happen. They would start their trip with 2 nights in the Dolomites, and then head to Switzerland for their main adventure. Or at least, that’s what Katrina thought was the plan. What she didn’t know is that Jeremy had something very special planned for their short trip to the Dolomites. He wanted to pull off the most romantic surprise marriage proposal at the lake.
Is the idea of spending your hard-earned dollars on a wedding killing you, when you’d much rather be spending it on an awesome ski trip? I feel you! After my first snowboarding trip to the French Alps, I was so addicted to the mountain life that I came back to England and quit my job, and jumped on a plane to the Austrian Alps to spend a winter season in a ski resort. When your highlight of the year is your annual pilgrimage to the ski slopes, it’s hard to imagine spending your savings on anything else, especially a wedding. BUT it doesn’t need to be a choice between one thing or the other. What if you could plan a winter wedding in your favourite ski resort in Europe? Well, guess what – YOU ABSOLUTELY CAN! And I’m going to show you how.
How do you ask out that girl you’ve fancied for a while? You offer her free wakeboard lessons, give her concussion and somewhere along the line, you end up dating. At least that’s how Anna & John’s love story started. Since the very beginning, their lives together have always been focused on adventure and spending time in nature. When it came to planning their wedding, they always knew that they wanted to elope. Their first thoughts went to jetting off to Las Vegas, but after some more thought, they decided they wanted to return to their favourite winter sports resort in the Dolomites in the Fall for an intimate elopement with their closest family.
Maggie & Cass are sheep herders in the beautiful state of Wyoming in the USA. But when it came to planning their wedding, neither of them wanted a big, traditional celebration. They decided instead to plan a trip to Europe and elope during their trip. After settling on Innsbruck as the location for their elopement, they only had one request for their wedding day. They wanted to spend the day exploring the local scenery and see as many animals as they could – especially sheep!

The local cows crashed this Rössl Alm wedding in Gerlos in the Austrian Alps and almost stole the show on Emma & Adam’s wedding day.
The Faroe Islands are being called “The Next Iceland” and for good reason. This little archipelago in the Atlantic Ocean is a nature lovers paradise. The breathtaking scenery is still unspoiled and even in “high season” you can hike without seeing too many other people on the trails. Last month I was in the Faroe Islands for an elopement with a wonderful couple from Ireland and Singapore, and also an adventure session with a gorgeous couple from Russia. So I thought it might be fun to put together a short post with some inspiration for a Faroe Islands Elopement
The Faroe Islands absolutely stole my heart the first time I visited in 2017 and are still right at the top of my list of the most beautiful places on the planet, alongside the Dolomites and Patagonia. In July I was fortunate enough to photograph an elopement in the Faroe Islands, and since I’ve had a few people asking me, I thought I’d put together a short post on “how to elope in the Faroe Islands” with some of the things I’ve learned on my visits.
