Hey all, we've been engaged now for many years and are looking to elope due to many reasons. 1. Being cost 2. My partner doesn't speak with his family 3. I'm very reserved, don't like all eyes on me kind of thing.
It will either be just us two if locally or possibly my parents and sister too if it's abroad.
I'd ideally love an abroad wedding.. Happy to pay that little bit more with it being abroad and have honeymoon all in one but it will need to be a very small venue and I'm struggling to find anything that is small enough if that makes sense.
I have looked at Boho corwall and will look into that that as a last resort.Hoping a few of you on here may have had families or friends that have eloped and could throw in some ideas for me! Happy to go as far as LV, NY barbados. So much choice and no idea to start!
Thank you

    We decided on Gretna Green due to travel (elderly parents) but originally I really liked the idea of Gibraltar. Some really beautiful venues and relatively straightforward in terms of paperwork etc 馃榾

    Thank you both!
    I've taken a look at Gibraltar and still none the wiser 馃槄 Oo I'll take a look at that woodland one it sounds lovely! I did have a nose at Gretna Green but my partner wasn't fussed on Scotland.

    I've been looking all morning and it's making my head hurt lol I've found one company with an elope wedding package in Tuscany at 2900 euro that included 3 nights, 3 course meal, photographer but doesn't include flights.I mean it's not bad but my sister got married in Malta for 1 week and paid 拢5000 and that was an all inclusive week holiday, make up, roof terrace rental, 3 course meals, a photographer and evening entertainment. She did have about 30 guests though which is not what I want!Otherwise I'd consider that! Think I might just need to look at UK and a honey moon instead! Argh I didn't think an elopement wedding could be so difficult! X

    I don't understand why people do that, it's very wrong!
    If a couple want to marry in private then it's nobodies business 馃槕
    I completely get why some couples elope! It's more common than I thought too!

    It's actually going OK, I've found a website for weddings abroad which are really good prices and are protected.
    Now it's just weighing up abroad or home 馃槵
    I've found a venue close to me though called the Glen Yr afon Hotel and they do a reasonable elopement package! Which I'm kind of swaying towards x

    We originally were going to elope to Gretna Green ( the original elopement destination!) but due to some unforeseen circumstances, we鈥檙e just having a small church ceremony here. I did have a look at Shetland elopements though through What Susan Sees and it is STUNNING. here鈥檚 the link: https://whatsusanseesphotography.com/
    They do all sorts of packages, we just couldn鈥檛 do the travel unfortunately
