Elope to Italy

Elope to Italy and flee from all the problems that come with the planning of a large wedding. Sounds good, doesn’t it? After all, Italy is amazing, everyone knows the food and wine, incredible scenery, centuries-old history, art and architecture and of course enthusiastic Italian people.

Eloping can be so exciting and exhilarating but just like anything it still needs organizing well so that it stays fun and enjoyable. Otherwise, that romantic notion of escaping to exotic locations and secretly getting hitched can easily become yet another impossible challenge. Well not to worry as we’ve got your backs and are here to help your Italian wedding come true.

5 Great Reasons to Elope.

  1. Weddings are very expensive. You can avoid having to spend large amounts of money on your wedding. You don’t have to spend on food, decor, accommodation and locations. You also don’t have to spend your hard earned money on the guests you can spend it on yourselves!
  2. Weddings can often cause family tension and stress over issues like “Who should we invite”. Well all of those worries will soon disappear when you only need to think about what’s on your packing list and will the dress fit in the suitcase.
  3. Some couples pass a year or more planning an elaborate wedding but this often causes stress and anxiety. Well, now you only need to think about yourselves… This means you can just plan what is important to you and enjoy it!
  4. As you are eloping you won’t have any guests so you can concentrate on doing what you really want and not what others want. Book what you want, buy what you want. It’s all about you.
  5. No need to worry about not telling people you are getting married. Just because you didn’t invite people to your wedding doesn’t mean you can’t celebrate it with them. Once you are married you can go home and have a party where you share the news and photos with all your friends and family. A party is easy to organize and fun and costs a lot less than a wedding.

Italy Blessing Ceremony

How to steal away and have a perfect secret wedding.

I love photographing weddings. I want to send you home with incredible photos to amaze your friends and family. However, a beautiful elopement in Italy is not just about the photos, to make it unique we also need to think about some of the details that will make it special. I appreciate that eloping to Italy may seem like a daunting task so to make it easier for you we can help you with your perfect elopement.

Ideas for your intimate private wedding.

  • Unique location

    You are going to need a wonderful location for your wedding. I know many amazing places and also have access to some very unique ones. Moreover, as it is only going to be you two (or at least a very small group of people) we can also be creative with the location.

  • Hair and Makeup stylist

    Hair and makeup styling are very important in a photo shoot. I can do a lot photographically to help you get great photos but if the hair and makeup are done poorly then there is not much I can do to fix it, post-production and retouching can help but it is so much better to get it right in the first place. I can give you a stylist who will help you look stunning at your elopement in Italy. They will also look after you all day so you look perfect from start to finish. I work with the best stylists that do wedding hair and makeup in Italy.

  • Elopement Bouquet

    Bouquet and boutonniere, flowers and decor. To start, you will at least want a stunning bouquet and a boutonniere. If you would also like some flowers for the ceremony, like a flower arch or free-standing compositions or other items of decor then that’s great and totally up to you. You may also want some flowers and candles for the evening.

  • Wedding ceremony

    You are getting married on your own so it is a very intimate experience. I believe you should have a very personalised ceremony that connects with you as a couple. Your ceremony should not be just a symbolic gesture that you feel you need to do because tradition says that is what you should do, it must be meaningful and emotional and therefore it will be memorable. I work with the best symbolic blessing celebrants in Italy.

  • Photos in amazing locations

    If you want photos in a vineyard, with rolling hills, with olives, cypress trees, open views and countryside, or if you prefer the ancient streets of an old Italian village we will take you to the best locations.

  • Romantic dinner

    Finally, after your photo session, you can sit down for a beautiful romantic dinner and enjoy some delicious Italian food and wine. A perfect end to your Italian elopement.
