As many couples across the UK find that they need to postpone their weddings due to COVID, the popularity of elopement weddings has increased. Planning a wedding can be very stressful for lost of people. However, some people just hate to be in the limelight. This makes an elopement wedding the perfect solution. You still get to marry your loved one, but you’re not being watching by hundreds of people.
This beach wedding photo shoot shows how a beach wedding can work beautifully for that elopement wedding.
Many couples want the beginning of the new chapter in their lives to be a joyful and genuine time. A beach elopement wedding offers this, along with the time and space to celebrate with their partner to its fullest.
An intimate wedding is often very beautiful and heartfelt. Add in the beauty of the beach and you have the perfect setting for your elopement wedding. It’s not the mainstream and traditional way of tying the knot. But this doesn’t stop couples have a stunningly gorgeous wedding.
The first thing to think about for a beach elopement wedding are the colours. Think sand, sky and sea. Then you need to find ways to tie this into your wedding day. For example, as you can see in this beach elopement wedding photo shoot, starfish style hair accessories have been used to tie into the beach theme. Muted and airy shades of blue, greys and green have been used too.
Backdrop wise – you have the beach! There is no need for manmade backdrops such as lovely flower walls and twinkling starlight backdrops. Instead, you have the stunning beauty of the natural backdrop for your special day.
This beach elopement wedding photo shoot took place in a town called Oia. There are breath taking views of Caldera and the Agean Sea from this town. The venue is Canaves which belongs to the family of Small Luxury Hotels of the World.
The pristine venue and minimal décor matched with incredible views created the perfect look for this shoot. The couple looked like they were on top of the world, just then two of them – together, forever!
This beach elopement wedding shoot is known as ‘Santorini under the Stars’ and certainly offers a lot of inspiration for possible beach elopement weddings in the future.
