There is something so personal and intimate about elopements. It’s a privilege to witness a genuine expression of love and commitment between two people. When California residents Shanna & Paul got in contact, the brief was “an English garden setting with a background of Georgian architecture”. The perfect choice was the Nash Conservatory at Kew Gardens.
A memorable moment for me was being asked to be a witness for their civil ceremony. I got quite emotional!
The next day the couple left on their European holiday/honeymoon. We organised for postcards to be sent to their families and friends, announcing their elopement just as they returned home.
