Whether it is due to size restrictions, timing or other reasons, eloping on Vancouver Island is an amazing wedding experience! Elopements are a unique, intimate and romantic way to celebrate your love! From taking a helicopter or chairlift to the top of a mountain, to a sandy beach on the edge of the pacific or a romantic forest wonderland - there is no end to the amazing elopement possibilities on Vancouver Island!
As a husband and wife ourselves, we have had the amazing opportunity to be a part of several elopements, we have had the honour of being the two witnesses as well as the photographers! Every time we sign a marriage certificate for a couple, we realize just how much we love being part of such a beautiful moment in a couples life!
These are some of our favourite reasons why elopements can be truly amazing...
The possibilities are endless if its just you, your love a JP and photographer! You can explore the ocean tides, the forest glades, hike into your favourite spot or take a helicopter to a glacier! If you've got a few guests, and a couple bridal party members - there are some beautifully intimate venues perfect just for you! Some of our favourite places for elopements & intimate weddings are Mt. Washington, Villa Eyrie, Tigh-Na-Mara, The Crow & Gate Pub, Cuckoos Trattoria just to name a few!
If you've dreamt of a quiet wedding with some of your closest family & friends, or just the two of you - elopements are perfection! Often couples choose eloping because they're looking for a completely intimate wedding celebration and a day focused just the two of them. With a smaller celebration, the only pressures you have are which spot on the big beach to choose, and barefoot or shoes! It is a day fully authentic to you!
So - if you're not into the idea of a traditional wedding with all the bells and whistles, this may be the perfect option for you! Elopements and intimate weddings give you the freedom to decide exactly how you celebrate your love in a way that best works for you.
Let be honest - a bigger wedding comes with a larger cost. Venue, decor, food, florals, drinks and more. For couples who elope - it may not be because they didn't want a big wedding, it may just be that they want to invest it differently into their celebration. Eloping allows you to really focus on the experience, in your needs rather than the needs of many.
Rather than investing in ballrooms and lights - why not spend your money on something truly spectacular, like a helicopter experience to a glacier, a spectacular celebrant to provide a custom ceremony, or even maybe hire a couple of the best Photographers / Videographers on the Island!!
If you value experiences, adventures and truly unforgettable memories - then eloping may be the perfect fit for you.
