Nowadays, elopements are becoming increasingly popular. This was sparked further in 202 when the traditional wedding industry was shut down which left couples unable to get married in a traditional way like they had planned. They then found innovative ways to get married with just themselves or a close group of people.
Not long ago, elopements were very much frowned upon because they were often seen as secretive or shameful. People see them as more of a last resort. However, this is no longer the case as they continue to rise in popularity.
What Are Elopements?
If you’re wanting a wedding photo experience that truly revolves around you and your partner, the Hitched Photo team is who you need.. Everyone will always tell you that your wedding day should be all about you and your partner. However, once you begin to add guests, discuss table numbers, and consider whether your great aunt Margaret can eat the options on the menu, the focus is taken off of you and is shifted towards the event instead.
An elopement, however, will make sure that your day really is your own from the moment you open your eyes to when you lay your head down at night. You will have every opportunity to be able to dream up a day that speaks to you. You can pick your activities, experiences, and truly be with your loved one. The right photography can make the experience all the more worth cherishing.
However, it is important to remember that this isn’t to say that traditional weddings are terrible. This isn’t it at all! There are definitely people out there who are more suited to or prefer traditional weddings and wouldn’t enjoy elopement.
The bottom line is that you should figure out what will make you and your partner the happiest. If you feel more at ease in an intimate and unique setting, an elopement is your perfect chance to get that. However, it is important to remember that there is no right or wrong answer.
After all, whether you go with an intimate type of wedding or a traditional one, it is both your and your partner’s special day, no one else’s.
