Elopement WEDDING REVIEW

Adele and Michael booked an adventure elopement just 6 months before their wedding, which took place in August 2022.
They opted for Jenna Carpenter as their Elopement Wedding Photographer and their photos were amazing…

‘Wow! Where do I start? Our day was just how we imagined it would be, and more, thanks to you guys. We wanted a calm, quiet, intimate wedding personalised just to suit us and that’s what we got from start to finish. We felt welcomed, at home, and joyful during our stay at Cote How. The team made our day seem effortless and nothing was too much trouble for them. If we could do it all again, we wouldn’t change a thing. Thank you for everything.
