Sophie & Joel ♥ Victoria, Australia
Photographer: Sarah Christensen Photo
At first glance, you could easily mistake Sophie and Joel’s beach elopement as a stylish shoot! Not only did Sophie the bride look effortlessly chic (the ultimate style for a blissful beach elopement) whilst her hubby-to-be and little boy Bill were rocking some serious beach ceremony cool, but the oh-so-talented Sarah Christensen was also by their side to capture the emotion and the nature of this darling day.
Elopements are becoming increasingly popular and it seems that this growth is due to similar reasons that couples tend to have a wedding abroad; they’re looking to tie the knot without the fanfare of a traditional big white wedding at home, and most are hoping for something more intimate, a little different and a wedding that is more unique and personal to them as a couple.
Simple yet overflowing with everything that is important at a wedding: love, happiness, unity and personality, of course!
“Sophie and Joel’s elopement was simple but absolutely stunning. They escaped to a gorgeous little stone cottage in Cape Bridgewater, a tiny town on The Great Ocean Road, Victoria and posted letters to their family and friends on the morning of the wedding to say: Surprise! We’re married.”
