Winter Elopement at Howick Historical Village

We love a bit of spontaneity when it comes to getting married, so when J & P emailed us three months before their 9th anniversary to ask if we could help them with a small elopement to mark 9 years together, hell yeah we said yes!

With just their parents in attendance, these two high school sweethearts chose Howick Historical Village as the setting for their wedding. Having been on a date there many years earlier, it held a lovely romantic significance for them.

It was a wet Friday in early June and we pretty much had the whole place to ourselves. But wait… aren’t those blue skies in the photos?! Yes! It had been raining all morning while we were setting up and then about half an hour before the ceremony was set to start it all just stopped, the clouds parted and cleared the way for an amazing day - we swear there’s some kind of magic in the air on wedding days!
