The concept of elopement is a beautiful thing to consider: “to run off secretly to be married.” The story of two lovers who know that they want nothing more than to be together is a time-honoured one, and while most couples choose a larger wedding with many guests, there is certainly something to be said for those who simply want to be wed. So, how does a couple elope while maintaining a simple, beautiful aesthetic that suits their personalities? These images show us that all it takes is a few simple things: a lovely dress, a non-fussy bouquet, and a special location – oh, and an amazing photographer to capture your memories forever.
More from the photographer, Amelia Fullarton:
“As a photographer, I love the idea of a low-key wedding experience that doesn’t sacrifice the visual elements and allows me to capture a few simple, truly beautiful moments. This editorial is all about two lovers escaping for a weekend away in the Byron Hinterland. It shows that an elopement or wedding can still be really incredible without a huge budget. A heavenly dress, flowers, and a special location can simply be enough to make your day stunning.”
