Here are some tips to best organize your adventure elopement:

Choose the Desired Type of Experience: Decide which type of experience you want to have: romantic, glamorous, relaxing, fun, or adventurous. This choice will influence every other aspect of the organization, from the location to the activities.

Choose the Location of your dreams: Regarding the location, choose based on your dream, budget, and the advice of your photographer planner. You might want the scenes of Icelandic glaciers or waterfalls, the splendid Dolomites in Italy, the coasts of Portugal, the fantastic landscapes of Hawaii, the green meadows of Scotland and Ireland, or the deserts of Morocco or Jordan. But there are still many more charming epic places!

Ceremony Location: Evaluate whether you prefer a natural setting or a private venue. Natural places offer spectacular scenery, while private venues provide more control and privacy.

Accommodation Search: Look for accommodations that offer private spaces such as gardens or spacious balconies with views. Check for minimum stay requirements and the possibility of accommodating guests and external vendors.

Transportation on the Elopement Day: For getting around in villages, towns, and cities, it is recommended to hire a private driver. For the countryside, it is advisable to rent a car and drive yourself.

Create a Detailed Itinerary: Work with your wedding planner to create a detailed itinerary for the elopement day, including some free time after the ceremony to explore or celebrate with a meal.
