Many couples don’t want to wait. They are planning to get married in the very near future, eloping, or rushing a small ceremony with their photographer, some close friends, and family but dispensing with or postponing the reception party.

Praslin Island, Seychelles Wedding Elopement Photographer | The ceremony took place on the top of a hill that overlooked all of the smaller Seychelles islands

The first kiss as Mr. & Mrs. The ceremony took place on the top of a hill that overlooked all of the smaller Seychelles islands. It was magical.

The couple decide to do a very intimate elopement wedding at a Praslin hotel in the Seychelles.  As they met at the wedding of the groom's brother, they saw it fit to only invite his brother and wife along.  The wedding day was super chilled and so were the couple.  This made for great documentary photo opportunities.
