Elopements, they seem to be the next big thing in weddings and for us photographers, isn't it just the best trend ever? No big groups shots, no herding people, no Uncle Bobs, no long days and they are often in the prettiest of settings. After all if you are going to go small, go perfect right? We've all seen a fair few of these on mountains so it was a pleasant change to see a woodland one shot by the brilliant Kerry Diamond

Elopements leave space for photography like full on wedding days simply can't afford. Photographers can form a more intimate bond with the couple and there is usually time for creative photography on the day. All the images that I've seen from this day are great but isn't this one just magical? Those beams of light travelling through the smoke, it looks like a film still. It is a gorgeous shot and the couple must be so happy with it.
