Eloping is a very inspiring idea as it lets the couple enjoy what really matters: you and your beloved, your promises, your passion – is supremely simple but heartachingly romantic, and this Hallstatt elopement will certainly leave you weak at the knees.
With quaint towns, alpine lakes and mountainscapes that sing whether they are snow-peaked or sun-drenched, Austria must be one of the most beautiful places on the planet. Little wonder, then, that Sari and Daniel travelled all the way from Australia to Hallstatt for their exquisite elopement. With the stunning surroundings drenched in autumnal colors, the couple experienced all four seasons over the course of their big day, the sun providing exceptional light one minute, before heavy rain flooded the deck where they were due to marry the next. But nothing could diminish the dream-like quality of their day – not even missing the shuttle bus that was due to take them to their ceremony!
The day was so intimate, with just eight guests attending. They wanted the location to be the main focus and tried to keep the styling simple yet elegant, with a subtle fairytale theme. They were surrounded by the breathtaking scenery and golden Autumn setting of the Ödensee area, which was further complemented by the stunning décor at the venue.
The bride was wearing a beautiful and romantic wedding dress with a lace bodice, thick straps and a full skirt, statement earrings and a long veil. She covered up with a long coat with faux fur for some outdoor shots. The groom was wearing a black suit with a burgundy tie and a bright boutonniere that matched the wedding bouquet.
