ELOPE TO THE LAKES

Elopement wedding packages for just the two of you. Perfect for couples wishing to tie the knot in a simple but romantic way, in a special place, and sometimes in secret!  With couples traveling to the Lake District from all over the UK and abroad, including your elopement wedding within a planned holiday is often the easiest way to keep your wedding secret.  A true elopement wedding is usually arranged with just a few months, bringing out your spontaneous side! 

Our elopement wedding couples have often been together the longest (25 years is not uncommon),  and tend to be those wishing to “marry” rather than have a big “wedding”.

All of our Elopement weddings are relaxed and intimate, with a classic legal ceremony in a beautiful destination (indoors or out). Fully exclusive use guarantees total privacy and romance.

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.
