Actually, no. Elopements where just the two of you go abroad to get married are really popular and we offer many elopement packages for this reason exactly! Couples love to just have an adventure where only they are present for their wedding, it’s a way to combine travel and the celebration of your love! That’s why we don’t require you to bring witnesses. If you are eloping to marry abroad, we will provide you with witnesses.
You are welcome to use your own suppliers, we will be more than happy to adjust our packages to allow for that.
As expert destination wedding planners, we have worked with couples from all over the world.

In the case you have something more specific in mind, please let us know and we will do our absolute best to customize your wedding according to your wishes and vision.
The truth is, most of the venues do not need decorations as the surrounding nature is so breathtaking.
