Are you and your partner thinking about eloping but want to keep it small and intimate? If so, you’re in the right place. An elopement is a small, non-traditional wedding ceremony with just the couple and sometimes a few close friends or family members. It’s a beautiful option for couples who want to focus on their love and commitment to each other rather than the traditional wedding trappings. Plus, having a small and intimate ceremony allows you to be more creative and personalize your special day.
In this blog post, we’ll explore five intimate and romantic elopement ideas for couples who want to keep it small and personal. From beach elopements to mountain elopements and everything in between, there’s something for every couple looking to make their elopement unique and special. So if you’re considering an elopement, keep reading for inspiration and ideas to help you plan the perfect ceremony.
The pandemic has forced people to reconsider their trajectory, many finding love and wanting to get married. With news that limits are being raised (and eventually lifted), this is the perfect time to arrange your big day. This means that you do not have to cross off anyone you want to attend. If you’re going to get married quickly–with little notice–this may be the best option for you. Love is the most potent emotion, bringing people together and inspiring dedication and fidelity. When it is the right time to tie the knot, eloping is the best way of making it happen quickly and with minimal fuss.
Eloping is not so much a “guest number” but a state of mind. While traditional weddings can be highly stressful (and nerve-racking), eloping is much more low-key and down to earth. It is the perfect alternative for the modern couple, focusing on the ceremony and the people in the immediate vicinity. Instead of requiring large amounts of time to plan, you can get married anytime (provided you already have your marriage licence). While some things are negotiable, others are not. You are going to have the most fantastic day, the exact moment that you have been waiting for your whole life.
Apart from the wedding dress and suit, another crucial decision a couple has to make is identifying a wedding venue. As a couple, you have an option to plan your wedding in your hometown or explore incredible sites away from home in a destination wedding. A destination wedding does not necessarily mean long hours of travel. You can still enjoy the historical architecture, incredible mountains, and seaside views within your state.
Even though there are challenges that come with planning a destination wedding, like an additional cost, chances of fraud, paperwork, and scheduling difficulties, the idea in itself is exciting. Incorporating the element of travelling and adventure into a far-off destination overshadows those challenges. Destination weddings bring a charm and a magical vibe that you would not experience with a local wedding. After all, it’s a once-in-a-lifetime event, and you would want to make it intimate, special, and memorable!

Perhaps you thought of Prince Edward Island, a small province in our Atlantic Maritime. While the scenery there is fantastic (or so I hear), I am talking about the Island in Lake Ontario. Roughly 90 minutes out from the core, you will turn right just before you get to Belleville.
Founded initially as a Loyalist Homestead, the area is now famous for its summer vacation vibe. The towns are very walkable, connected by a major thoroughfare. You know the deal; you keep driving on the same street, seeing a new welcome sign every couple of lights. While waiting, remember that you are no longer in Toronto! Take a gander outside, taking in the fresh lake air and vintage stores. You will see stores that are oneofakind, operated by families with deep roots in the local community. Many Churches are empty during the winter, used (almost) entirely for the wedding season during the warmer months. They were constructed around confederation, providing a glimpse into the past.
