Lanie + Cam | Boranup Elopement

Lanie + Cam’s elopement in Boranup Forest.

Although the forest is huge, there’s a hidden little clearing that is one of my favourite spots for ceremonies. Turn off a gravel road and head down a narrow track a little bit deeper into the forest…

It’s always cool to see the look on couples’ faces as they wonder where on earth they are heading, before this magic clearing reveals itself.

The quiet of a smaller elopement is amazing, and a more relaxed pace means you can notice little details – the soft wind through the trees and the chirping of birds in the forest.

And if you get a touch of haze in the air, like Lanie + Cam did, there’s an epic golden light that filters through the trees.

We drifted out to the coast, through a moonscape of rocks at sunset.
