It was an intimate family affair at this Rome elopement with the couple's two gorgeous boys taking centre stage alongside their parents. The couple decided they wanted to have a close, small wedding in the romantic city that provided the most amazing backdrop to their portraits. All captured by the amazingly talented Italian sister duo, Benni Carol Photography, who specialise in sustainable, outdoor and bohemian weddings, adventurous elopements and intimate destination weddings, just like this one. And that was just the start of their adventure, after 3 days in Italy they jetted off to enjoy a break in Dubai and the Maldives!

Rome Elopement Adventure with Red Rose Bouquet 

We decided to make our Wedding an Adventure. We Eloped to Rome with our two young boys. Being on our own made everything more intimate, a fantastic connection with our suppliers made them feel like family by the end of the day. We stayed in Rome for only 3 days. Following Rome, we went to Dubai and then off to the Maldives. Our adventure in total was nearly 3 weeks long, spending that time as a family of four and as newlyweds were just unforgettable. We cannot thank our suppliers enough especially Veronica and Benni & Carol.

I wanted a chilled, fun vibe for the day which was definitely made. Even the little things like making a stop during photos to go grab a Gelato with the suppliers were just so lovely. Styling-wise I wanted boho and relaxed. Little did we know the camper van we had hired for the day had photo props, whilst my husband and I were having photos, our children had dressed up and surprised us wearing wigs and inflatable props, it made great photos and was absolutely hilarious.

Intimate Elopement in Rome with City Portraits

I made my flowers and the buttonholes myself! As we were going abroad and I wanted to keep them I made them from artificial flowers. Benni and Carol stole the show! Their work is absolutely amazing and such beautiful souls. My dress... I loved it! The most comfortable dress I’ve ever worn, I actually chose it online before I went to see it or try dresses on. I went straight to the boutique to try it on and knew it was the one immediately. I tried others on but they just weren’t the same.
