I read somewhere this morning that the average age for getting married is now 35 for women and 38 for men – which means plenty of us are tying the knot past the age of 40. Let’s celebrate that today, shall we? I’d love to see more wedding editorial with a wider age range… because this is an absolute BEAUTY of a shoot. As always with lovely Noemi from Thyme Lane Photography, the shoot focuses on the core of what’s important in marriage – and this is right up my street.

“We tried to give more inspiration showing how little money is needed to make your day very special. As you know, I am a big fan of minimal carbon footprint and maximum love involved. Absolutely everything is handmade or real vintage, I am trying to show couples how super versatile pre-loved and handmade things can be, no two inspirational shoots are the same even though the principles and values are.

When Noemi (Thyme Lane Photography) emailed me with this earthily beautiful elopement, she had my heart in a few words: “I just don’t think couples need to spend extreme amounts of money and stress a lot about their day, just have a few pretty details and love each other.”

Yes. That. Exactly that. We share every kind of wedding inspiration on blogs, from luxury weddings to intimate celebrations and elopements (and I’m on the lookout for a micro wedding!) but this – this is what makes me personally smile more than anything in the world. A personal celebration of love, a handful of STUNNING images, and some simple, ethical, wonderful details. It’s all you need. I will hand over to lovely Noemi to tell you more!

This shoot was intended to give couples inspiration who would like a quiet, intimate elopement with no pressure of a big day. It was all about feeling free and making your day completely your own. We focused on happiness, emotions, amazing light and beautiful but easily achievable details to any couples.
