What is an Elopement? The modern explanation.

Originally an Elopement was for couples who "ran away" to get married, often without the permission of their families. Today, an Elopement isn‘t anymore about "running away", but to get married in a very intimate way.

So here is a modern explanation for an Elopement Wedding:

An Elopement is an intimate and personalized ceremony. You get married without a large, traditional wedding, because your celebration is focused on your love and commitment to each other, and you emphasis simplicity, privacy, and authenticity. So you escape tradition and the ordinary wedding-timetable to spend a day focusing on those things you love, all alone or with the people you truly appreciate. So you embrace the extraordinary!

Location of Choice

One of most the beautiful aspects of eloping is the freedom to choose any location. It could be a breathtaking mountaintop, a secluded beach or a charming forest. You can also cross borders and travel to other countries and islands! There are no limits and I‘m happy to help you to find the perfect location.

Adventure and Excitement

Elopements offer the chance for adventure, since you are not bound to a boring timetable. Whether it's a helicopter ride to a mountain summit, a boat tour on a lake, a romantic hike to a hidden waterfall or a picnic at the beach, the day can be filled with excitement and spontaneity! Include all the things that are important for you two, because this is YOUR special day.

Incorporating Hobbies and Passions

Whether it's playing music, reading poetry, or dancing under the stars, elopements provide the perfect canvas to include elements that truly reflect who you are as a couple. For example: Maybe you start your day with writing letters to each other, which you read at the ceremony, or play music together during your couple photos.

All alone or with guests

For Elopements it‘s very common to spend the full day on your own. However, an Elopement means the freedom to choose and plan. So in case you wish your closest family and friends with you, just let them travel with you! Invite them to the ceremony or later to a small intimate candlelight-dinner.

Let me repeat that: An Elopement means the freedom to plan the day like you two wish for. It can be a private ceremony with just you two on top of a mountain in Sweden and small dinner with friends afterwards. But it can also be a ceremony with ten guest on a beach in Portugal in the morning and a huge picnic with all your friends later on.

Advantages of Elopements compared to traditional Weddings

  1. Intimacy:
    Elopements focus solely on you, creating an intimate and meaningful experience without the distractions of a large crowd.
  2. Flexibility:
    With fewer guests and less formality, elopements offer flexibility in location, timing, and overall structure.
  3. Cost-Effective:

  4. Stress-Free:
    The simplicity of elopements reduces stress, allows you to focus on each other and the significance of the moment. There are simply no guests waiting for you to get things done.

In the end, elopements are a beautiful alternative for couples seeking a personal, intimate, and unforgettable way to celebrate their love.
