We eloped ❤
The day Yury asked me to marry him, I already had a clear vision of a perfect wedding in my mind.
Having photographed more than 200 weddings over the last few years, I knew exactly how to have a really beautiful and fun wedding.
– “I want whatever you want for our wedding” he said as I asked about his thoughts on the wedding shortly after the proposal.
– “Great. It’s going to be one awesome wedding then” I answered.
To cut the story short, almost two years of being engaged we realised that it was an impossible task to choose the date that our families could travel to Australia, so we decided to elope instead.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m a type of person who looooves a fun party and all those pretty little details, tears during ceremony, fun speeches, first dance with dad…
But it just seemed so incredibly difficult to have everyone that we love at the same time and place (both families live overseas)… so we decided to organise an elopement wedding.
Thanks to our amazing team who made it all look like a dream!
