Elopement at Golden Ears Park: Sarah + Michael

It’s no secret that this location is one of our favourites, so when Sarah and Michael invited us to their elopement at Golden Ears Park, we were thrilled! Especially since we got to do so on the most beautiful Summer evening, yes please!

A couple of days before their wedding, the park suddenly made it mandatory to have a visitor pass, but these two were unfazed. “It’ll work out.” And it did, we all got a pass! 😉 Spontaneity for the win!

When we arrived on the day of the elopement, the original plan for the two of them was to get married on the beach. And to do some portraits in the nearby environment after. But because the circumstances didn’t fully work out (light/people/…), they trusted us and walked with us into an impromptu forest ceremony! We’re glad they did, because the forest worked it’s magic with the beautiful sun. What a place!

After the ceremony, Sarah honoured her Persian roots with a honey ritual. And with a beautifully decorated park bench and some photographs of family members that couldn’t be there in person. She clearly put a lot of thought into it and made a lot of things herself! Very crafty! Who says you can’t have a cake cutting during your elopement for two! Popping champagne is also always an option!

And of course we went to the beach at the end of our session, because those mountain views are just unparalleled!

Thank you so much for having us you two! It was an honour to be your witnesses and we hope you get to enjoy the rest of the (not too hot) Summer!
