A wild and carefree elopement at the lakes styled shoot

Saturday, November 21, 2020

For Day 6 of Mirowedding Week 2 we wanted to share this gorgeous lakeside elopement! Eloping is the ultimate microwedding and keeping your wedding day intimate, just for the two of you, can be just as special as sharing it with family and friends. This shoot was put together by Lauren Elliott photography, who tells us all about the inspiration behind it. We love the boho style and the dried flower bouquet is so on trend. 


I wanted this shoot to feel wild and carefree, a couple who had run away to the lakes to be married. An elopement gives couples the freedom to enjoy their day however they like, giving them the freedom to run away to the hills for a day and celebrate their love. The colour scheme was muted autumnal colours, we photographed this at the end of summer, so I wanted it to be a nod to the changing seasons.  


With this shoot I wanted to inspire couples looking for other options after coronavirus restrictions had changed their plans. The whole shoot was pulled together, v e r y last minute, I’m talking in 3 days. Although it's unlikely to pull a wedding together this quickly, right now suppliers have more time on their hands due to cancellations and can pull things together in shorter spaces of time. 

As wedding suppliers, we work very closely together, so build connections with others in the industry, and of course we’re more than happy to recommend these suppliers to our couples. Meaning that, with the right suppliers, they can help you to pull together the elopement of your dreams in a short time period and you could save your huge wedding party for when restrictions are fully lifted. 


The bouquet was created by the incredible Folky Dokey, she works with dried flowers to put together bouquets which last forever. I absolutely love all the different textured she used in this, from the fluffy bunny tails to the gorgeous dried palm. She always creates the most amazing colour palettes and tones. 


The dress was a sample borrowed to me by Shikoba bride, who designs the most amazing bohemian, fashion-led dresses. I absolutely adore all the intricate details in the lace and the long bell sleeves. The long floating skirt and train, gives this dress the most amazing movement.

The suppliers I chose to work with are both close industry friends of mine. I’m very lucky to have met them through weddings and always love getting the chance to work with them.
