Oh yes, love and adventure was certainly the main ingredients for these two soul mates, who enjoyed an intimate elopement ceremony that was unique on so many levels.

When knocking on the door of ‘Elope Brisbane’ Paris and Ryan weren’t entirely sure how they wanted their wedding day to look, but they did know that they wanted it to be just the two of them, with a little fun added into the mix.  Romana, coordinator and Photographer at ‘Elope Brisbane’ was in her creative element….a ‘Love Adventure’ it was to be.

Oh and did I mentioned the date?  Valentines Day no less.  Location…??  Wait for it… Adult Emporium Lane, Albion.  That’s right… by the doorway to the Adult Shop.

And this is how it went…

A little conscious of time, given the store open at 10am and we didn’t want that awkward scene of the owner trying to open up the shop, we planned for a 9.30am start.  But the couple were delayed.  And sure enough during the ceremony, the two owners popped their head around and politely sneeked past, apologising along the way.  Of course, it wasn’t a problem, cos we always go with the flow, and we just picked up where we left off.

The ceremony, as always, was so heartfelt and joyful, the overwhelming emotions taking the sweethearts by surprise.  Vows were exchange, rings placed upon their fingers, and then the kiss!  While signing the certificates, the door to the Adult shop opened, and out popped the owners with a gift bag for the happy couple…. So sweet!!  I’ll leave it to your imagination as to what was inside (LOL)

All married… I said my goodbyes and off they went to continue their wedding adventure…next that included a refreshment at [bar] and then a stop off at the Tattoo parlor where the Bride got some ‘ink’; her pic of her bouquet on her ankle.  Just a little memento for an amazing memory day.
