So this is the English Wedding Blog… and I try to make every feature useful for all of you wonderful UK brides and grooms out there looking for ideas for your big day. I rarely feature destination weddings, although we’ve been known to skip across the borders to France, Italy, and of course Scotland, Wales and Ireland for a beautiful celebration feature. Never Canada though, despite it being one of the most amazing destinations and top of my list of places I’d love to visit in the entire world. When Daryl and Kathryn sent me these images of their breathtaking mountain elopement for the blog, I couldn’t resist sharing them with you. Somehow they slipped through a gap in my editorial schedule and I’ve kept these beauties from you since January. Is their Canadian elopement relevant to UK brides and grooms? Yes!!! I now believe we should all elope to Canada. Ditch all your other plans and just look at this…
“We love to travel. After our amazing engagement in Boracay, Philippines, we knew we wanted to make our wedding really special and something that was very true to us. So, we booked a flight, emailed an amazing photography company we found on Instagram and started dress shopping!
We managed to plan the entire wedding within a couple of weeks, making sure we had our visas, marriage license, transport, accommodation and full wedding attire (including a last-minute bouquet) all ready for our big day.
We couldn’t have hoped for better weather, as we spoke our vows looking over one of the most beautiful lakes in the world, surrounded by the incredible mountains of the Canadian Rockies.” ~ Daryl & Kathryn
