Eloping with your partner means that you can focus on what is most important to the two of you. You can be totally selfish about your wishes, and I mean that in a good way. Eloping can be a great way of simplifying things down and to have that stress free and fuss free wedding you always wanted. It means you can concentrate more on the moment and what is most important, which, ultimately is the two of you getting married.
Elopements can take whatever form you would like them too. That is the beauty and delight of Eloping in Switzerland or Europe. You can plan your day however you both choose to celebrate your love and this beautiful adventure you are on.
It might be an adventure elopement in the mountains that speaks to you most. Hiking up to the top, staying overnight in a mountain hut or hotel then saying your vows to each other at sunrise with a spectacular view in front of you and a picnic brunch. It could be almost the complete opposite of that. You could get dressed up in your most stylish outfits, head to the Zivilstandesamt or Stadthaus with a couple of witnesses (or not) and treat yourselves to a tasty meal afterwards in a restaurant that you have always wanted to try. Ending the day by sharing evening drinks and watching the sun go down over the rooftops of your most favourite city.
That's the beauty of elopements. Anything goes.

Can you tell I'm very into elopements and elopement photography?! Can't wait to hear your plans.
I know from chatting to past couples that it can be tricky to plan an elopement in Switzerland or Europe if you don't know the country very well, are living elsewhere or have only visited on holiday a few times. The beauty of elopements is that there are no rules, but this can also be very overwhelming during the planning process. I can help with this. Let me know what you would like to do, what scenery you enjoy, how much hiking/travelling (or not) you would like to/can do, where you plan to stay etc etc. Together we can come up with some suggestions and a plan for the best place to say your vows, explore the scenery and enjoy your celebrations. I can link you up with some other great suppliers too.
Most people are bonkers and strange in the best kind of way. If you want to show this authentically and unapologetically and you want to emphasise those in-between moments that make love so great; I’m so glad we’ve found each other. You are probably a fan of doing things your own way and want your elopement photographs to reflect this. If so, please, get in touch.
