for just the two of you

Runaway to the Romantic Lake District

What is an elopement wedding?

A wedding for just the two of you. Perfect for couples wishing to tie the knot in a simple but romantic way, away from home, and sometimes done in secret!

Frequently our elopement couples have been together the longest (25 years is not uncommon) and usually travel here from all over the UK and abroad. So including your elopement wedding within a holiday is often the perfect relaxed and intimate way of tying the knot!

It is a totally relaxed wedding involving a classic ceremony in a beautiful destination (indoors or out) and has an extra romantic almost cheeky feel. Usually arranged with just a few months to go, it brings out the spontaneity in you!
