Based on internet searches, elopements are still really popular with UK couples. I’m thrilled that this ‘trend’ continues: it’s a gorgeous and creative way to begin your marriage with a big adventure!

According to a survey by Ginger Ray:

A third of British couples (32%) highlighted financial reasons for eloping
77% of those planning to elope are opting to tie the knot within the UK, not abroad
Wales ranked as the top choice for a UK elopement

A wonderfully intimate elopement for a very pregnant bride and groom! This is more than perfect, and has me falling head over heels in love with the idea of a UK elopement. Zoe and Freddie are fab, and chose to do things differently by heading to Cornwall, just the two of them and our lovely friend Hannah Timm Photography. It makes for the sweetest story, and their photos are wonderful. Enjoy!Claire's signature

Wedding photographer review

Hannah was amazing on our special day, she went above and beyond and planned out the most beautiful spots for our wedding photos!

Nothing beats an intimate elopement, and today’s real couple headed up to the Lakes for theirs. Alison is the prettiest bride, Darren her perfect match and this simple celebration at the Gilpin Hotel has everything you could ever need for a memorable, wedded bliss kind of escape!

Were you pleased with your wedding photographer? Do tell… we love a brilliant review!

Yes pleased, Jaye captured some great photos especially on the lake using her drone.

This one’s for all the adventurous souls out there. Don’t tame your spirits to have the wedding the media says you ‘should’. Follow your hearts, and let your commitment take a shape that suits the two of you perfectly. Elope in a spectacular location, if that’s the epitome of who you are as a couple!

Today’s blog is magical for its simplicity and romance. Nature provides the magnificent backdrop for gorgeous couple Andrew and Emma’s elopement in Northern Ireland. Images are amazing – they’re by Luke Flint Photography (https://www.lukeflintphotography.co.uk)

I’d elope. I’ve never shied away from saying this: if I got married right now, I’d elope. Easy. There’s just something wildly romantic about it being just the two of you (plus an amazing celebrant and lovely photographer, obvs) – and escaping into remote nature to say beautiful words – it’s my dream. So today’s glorious feature comes from stunning couple Matthew and Jane, with lovely Hannah Brooke Photography. I hope you’ll adore this as much as I do.“english
