Did you know that Elopements have become a real trend in recent years?
What is an elopement?
According to wikipedia:
To elope, most literally, means to run away and to not come back to the point of origin. More colloquially, elopement is often used to refer to a marriage conducted in sudden and secretive fashion, usually involving a hurried flight away from one's place of residence together with one's beloved with the intention of getting married.
In times gone by this was a secretive yet romantic idea of marriage to an often forbidden love. In the 21st century it has taken on quite another role and whilst the romantic intimacy remains it is an alternative affair to a larger more traditional wedding. We love these tiny weddings.
The couple are often after a more secluded intimate venue or place of marriage, this may even allow them to travel to a dream location surrounded by just a few friends and family members. This allows the couple to travel across continents to a place that THEY wish to connect to each other.
As a destination photographer based in Marbella we are very lucky to be able to put on some boot or jump into the car and within a few minutes be on a mountain, a beach, under the shade of a tree in a vineyard or next to a waterfall... this is the spirit of any elopement; to be outside or at a special place connecting with the world around you. Perhaps where we are makes us love elopements even more.
At Bloomfield Photography we LOVE this spirit of adventure and will drive, fly, walk and trek with you to get to the destination of your dreams.
