Alice and Adam Elope

I had the most fun helping Adam and Alice elope on South Golden Beach, 15 minutes north of Byron Bay.

They only had five guests in attendance, however they live streamed the ceremony on YouTube to family members in the U.K.

I love intimate elopements, but knowing that there were people having breakfast and drinking tea in England, whilst watching the ceremony in real time, made it seem like we had a much larger audience - it was amazing.

Alice and Adam wrote secret vows for one another, and after Adam said his, Alice remarked, "Yours are so good!".
Then she said to us, "he usually proof reads all my emails, but I couldn't get him to proof read this!"
For the record, hers were great as well.

Before the ceremony, I met Alice and Adam and their guests at their accommodation and then we all walked down to the beach, after they were legally married and a few celebratory drinks we enjoyed, the wedding party headed back to the house for dinner.

Aside from myself, there were only two other vendors on the day, Mr Jamie Green behind the lens, and Elise and Sarah-Mae from The Poor Girls Pantry, who created an epic feast for Alice and their guests to enjoy after the ceremony

Apart from being an all-round amazing human, Alice is also a very talented photographer who operates under the name She Cried Wolf.

Her awesome and unique wedding dress was sourced from Waiste Vintage.
