Thinking of eloping? Grab your partner and let’s do it!

Over time elopements have become more popular, particularly in 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic. 
It is a great way to spontaneously tie the knot and save money from the traditional big white wedding and instead spend it on travelling and starting your new life together.
Conventionally speaking, eloping used to have the connotation of being sneaky, excluding one’s family and getting married in secret. These days it has a whole new meaning! 
Eloping doesn’t have to be just the two of you. You can still celebrate your wedding with those closest to you and take them along on your adventure! 
Hiring accommodation for the weekend somewhere fun and unique can be an awesome way to celebrate! An intimate wedding ceremony barefoot with a flower crown and flowing dress in a garden – what could be more romantic than this?
You will not need to miss out on the ceremony, pre-dinner and reception – this can definitely still be achieved. If you do want to mix it up a little, you can even have the ceremony during the reception with those closest to you and have them part of your special moment.

Making the decision to elope might be swayed by the amount of money you have put aside for your wedding.
Weddings can be costly when adding up the venue hire, florist, catering, decor and entertainment costs. If this is the case, you might want to keep your circle small.
Think about your interests and hobbies and what you enjoy doing together as a couple. If you love the beach, a bohemian styled elopement on the beach may be perfect for you.
If you prefer luxury – a safari at a luxurious game reserve could be an option.
