These two souls flew all the way from Utah, to have their dream Australian Elopement in the heart of Noosa, and my goodness what an incredible afternoon it was!
We made our way down to the beach in the late afternoon for their nuptials. When we got there, the sun was still high (as was the tide) and the beach covered with fellow beach-goers enjoying some rays on the Public Holiday. So, instead of rushing straight to the vows and sticking to a strict schedule (as seen on any traditional wedding day — my goodness you don’t want to mess up the schedule!) we decided to find a nice shady spot, and sat around enjoying the beautiful scenery until the time “felt right”.
That’s what I love about Elopements. You have the flexibility of time. And in being in the present moment, you are able to wait until the time feels right for you, and in doing so, you can have the most incredible experience.
SO, when the time was right, Gillian carved out their ceremony circle in the sand and performed a Binding Ritual to honour her maternal ancestry of Witches 💫 Surrounded by all of the elements (air, water, fire and earth) we had a beautiful, meaningful ceremony at sunset, on a mostly empty beach, to the sound of lapping waves, the faint glow of the candles, and dolphins frolicking by the shoreline.
A truly magical afternoon, a magical ceremony, and two magical human beings✨
