You said yes to the love of your life, and now you’re engaged! But perhaps you’ve started wedding planning, and you’re realised you don’t want a big expensive wedding, full of people that you feel obliged to invite. Then perhaps a crazy idea pops in to your minds. Why don’t we elope? Eloping is one of the most exciting and intimate ways to get married and start your new lives together as a married couple. One of the best things about having an elopement instead of a traditional wedding is that there are NO RULES! You can do whatever you like, and go wherever you want. And 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 world-wide 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.
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.
If you are considering eloping, or you know someone that already has, you might have heard people voice their opinions on elopements. Maybe it’s got you asking yourself, “is it selfish to elope?” Whilst there will always be some people that might say that it is, I believe eloping can actually be the opposite of selfish. Keep reading to find out why.
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.
