An elopement is the ultimate wedding – it’s all about your love, your way and your day. You two choose your stunning location and then focus on the most important part of a wedding day – your vows, while I concentrate on documenting your memories to last a lifetime.

If you fancy running away to the Lakes together, take me along and I’ll photograph the biggest adventure of your life! We can go anywhere! Elopement honours the essence of getting married and your relationship is the priority.

I can be as adventurous as you – I’ll climb a Cumbrian fell like Helvellyn, or the Langdales, stopping off at scenic locations like Blea Tarn or hike to a scenic spot with Lake Windermere as a stunning backdrop. We can visit one of the Lake Districts popular wedding venues like Inn on The Lake, or Muncaster Castle and you could have portraits in the venue grounds. I know the Lake District intimately, and I’m in the area every week, so whatever you have envisioned for your Lake District Elopement photography, I’d love to be able to share my location knowledge and work with you to create photos that will adorn the walls in your home and be cherished for years to come.

Eloping is romantic and it acts as a wonderful template for married life. It provides authenticity, spontaneity, adventure, fun and creativity.

As your Lake District elopement will be completely unique to you, please get in touch and we can start planning how to tell your amazing story with a bespoke package.

Elopement Photography

You may be wondering how elopement photography differs from traditional wedding photography, so I thought I’d give an insight into the differences. As an elopement photographer, I spend more time curating locations that fit your personal preferences than I would on a regular wedding day. With weddings with lots of guests, there’s rarely the time to go fell climbing or spending too long at different locations, whereas during your Lake District elopement, you’ll have as long as you like which can be worked around your wedding ceremony without worrying about guests wondering whether they need to call mountain rescue.

Bespoke to you

Your elopement photography is totally bespoke.

It’s all about you and can be a brief, simple photoshoot in a favourite location, or a full day shoot with a pub lunch. It’s your day, so you decide!

I don’t offer elopement packages, my pricing is bespoke to your needs, starting at £600 for 2 hours coverage, in Cumbria. Additional hours can be bought if you want to get even more adventurous!

Elopement isn’t a dirty word

Elopement isn’t a dirty word. The result of an elopement is the same as a traditional wedding. Marriage, Vows and the Verb, Love. You both still end up yelling “WHAT?!” from different sides of the house, you still spend 20 minutes deciding what to have for lunch because you both “Don’t mind” and you’ll still both wind each other up every now and then…
