The wedding industry has grown, new wedding trends are appearing, others seem to fade.
One question that will always be the first, couples will ask themselves, will be ‘how big of a wedding are we having?’
Are you planning on having an intimate wedding with just close friends and relatives, a big wedding with a lot of guests or an elopement? Wat, what? Can you tell us more about that one?
Every choice is unique and can tell you for sure, a beautiful one. I have noticed in the last years there is a tendency from couples that live in the US to elope in a romantic destination.
Eloping is taking your better half and getting married wherever you like. Literally, wherever! In my experience, there is a bit of magic into that. I have had the privilege and honor to photograph elopements in the most romantic places in Europe, like Santorini in Greece, Paris in France, Tuscany and Amalfi in Italy. One thing that all of these had in common was how romantic the day was and how the couples really enjoyed every bit of their special day!
Elopements are very relaxed and laid back in their nature. You don’t have to mind about guests, you have all the time you want to dedicate for photography, relax and discover the hidden gems of the location you chose.
Bonus, you get to start your honeymoon right the next day, this being actually a destination wedding!
On the technical side of things, elopements are the most cost-efficient way to get married. Even the ‘deluxe’ elopement packages in a luxury hotel are very affordable. Take a moment with your partner and decide what type of wedding best represents you as a couple!
