If there hasn’t been a manual written on how to have the most perfect intimate elopement celebrations… Joel & Bec’s amazing elopement in Tasmania could probably do a pretty good job of covering all the bases. Driving out to the property my excitement started to peak as we drove up the drive and saw the water behind the most beautiful house I think I’ve ever seen. I’d been trying to plot nearby photo locations to shoot at and as soon as we arrived I realised we really wouldn’t be needing any. The location was simply perfect and we had more than enough to choose from.
This elopement had everything… incredible handwritten vows, beautiful cliff top ceremony, tears.. so many tears. (Myself included) Then we found horses, smoke bombs, had a first dance in the middle of a field to some B.B King classics and a fire on the beach just to name a few of the highlights… Oh did I mention sparklers in an outdoor bath to end the night?! They picked a perfect off the grid venue a few hours out of Hobart to bunker down for a few days with their absolute nearest and dearest after road tripping down from Newcastle in their van, ‘the Gus Bus,’ with their young baby boy with them the whole trip. I’m going to stop writing now and let you enjoy the photos. As always this post is best enjoyed with your headphones on and the volume turned up to 11. (and maybe keep the tissues handy if you’re a sympathetic crier like me)
