1. What is an elopement?

An elopement is essentially just a small wedding, with fewer guests than the average wedding they are often seen as non-traditional.

2. Reasons to elope

Some couples just don’t want to make a big fuss about getting married. Enjoy a quiet and memorable day by only inviting your closest friends and family. Elopements are private by nature and can be much more affordable when compared to a traditional wedding, they can be less stressful too.

In the UK elopements are not so common as they are in the US. Some wedding venues have a minimum guest limit. You may feel guilty for not inviting everyone.
