Have you ever considered eloping in a hot air balloon?

Covid 19 has forced us to think about weddings a little different.   It is going to take some time before weddings return to what we consider “normal”.

Therefore many couples are using this as an opportunity to do things differently.  Above all,  they are looking at alternative ways to say “I do” that are just as special and memorable .

A number of couples have contacted me asking for unique ideas.  After 10 years in the industry, I can definitely offer lots of suggestions of ways to make your wedding day special.

The Couple

Tom & Alice are one such couple.  They wanted to avoid the stress and pressure of a traditional wedding, particularly as they describe themselves as introverts.  Covid gave them an excuse to think about getting married a little differently.    With complicated family dynamics they decided to stop worrying less about other people and more importantly, focus more on themselves.

Tom & Alice love the outdoors and an adventure.   So they decided to get married in a hot air balloon elopement at Sunrise over the Yarra Valley.  What an incredible way to tie the knot.  When I received their email outlining their plans, I may have squealed with delight.   I knew I just had to be a part of it.   (despite the 3am start that day)

Due to the covid restrictions at the moment, we are busy planning for this to happen once the restrictions have been eased.   And I am looking forward to making their magical and romantic dream of getting married in sunrise hot air balloon a reality.

For any couples who are looking for some elopement inspiration, I hope this will inspire you to think outside the box.   I will always ensure that the legal obligations of getting married  are met.    The hardest decision to make is whether you want a city or Yarra Valley Hot air balloon elopement?

And if you are a couple who love an adventure, a hot air balloon option might be the perfect option for you.
