Whytecliff Park elopement inspiration

Have you ever been at Whytecliff Park? If not, you’re missing out! It’s one of Jelger and my favourite spots to watch the sunset and the ocean. That and the tourists getting stuck on the big rock because they didn’t keep an eye on the tide. Someone grab the popcorn. 😛 Mean? Nah, they just get a little wet.

Whytecliff Park speaks to the imagination, with it’s mini island, majestic mountains in the backdrop and gorgeous pebble beach. It could be part of a movie. At this particular shoot, it actually was part of a movie. 😛 Despite us checking in with the crew the day before, we couldn’t start setting up our items until 30 min before sunset… Oops! Thanks to Jennifer and Rachael, that went quickly!

With the sun going down quickly, the shoot turned unexpectedly moody. Luckily we came prepared with a cake that lit up in the dark and lanterns. 😉 

As we like to do, we photographed a real couple for this styled shoot. These two were absolutely amazing together. I hope to get to see their wedding photos some day! They braved the mosquito’s and the evening breeze and made everything around them look peaceful and beautiful.

Without further ado, enjoy the photographs and don’t forget to check out the vendors and the amazing video from Capture Productions at the end of this post!

I thought you might enjoy this behind the scenes shot of Jelger, the video team and enthusiastic hikers… 😉
