Laurel & Dustin didn’t want a traditional wedding. Their plan was to get married at the courthouse in their home state then take an amazing trip to Europe to celebrate. They decided to take their wedding photos during their trip and decided the stunning Lake Braies in the Dolomites would be the perfect spot. Keeping the un-traditional vibes, Laurel opted to wear a stunning gold wedding gown, which added a touch of glamour to their wild and rustic location in the Italian Alps.
I’m in love with Austria. But that’s probably not a surprise because that’s why I moved here from the UK. But I think Austria is a hugely overlooked destination when it comes to planning an elopement in Europe, or even in the Alps. Most people look at the Swiss Alps and the Italian Alps first, as they are perhaps better known worldwide. But there are so many reasons to elope in Austria, and more specifically, the Austrian Alps. I believe that the Austrian Alps are definitely somewhere you need to consider if you are looking for a mountain elopement in Europe.

Erika & Nathan’s legal wedding ceremony took place over Skype (who else had no idea that was actually a thing?!) whilst Nathan was serving overseas in the military. Since these two didn’t get to spend their wedding day on the same continent as one another, they wanted to celebrate their marriage by travelling together to somewhere stunningly beautiful and going on an adventure together. And that somewhere that they chose was Lago di Braies in the Dolomites region of the Italian Alps.
Elizabeth & Matt’s Cliffs of Moher elopement was a day of wild weather, but nothing was going to stop them having the best day of their lives. They embraced the unforgiving weather and had the most heart-warming ceremony on the top of the Cliffs of Moher before warming up with dinner and drinks in the most Irish way – a pint of Guiness in the local pub!
