IT’S NOT ABOUT US – IT’S ABOUT YOU AND YOUR DAY.
BUT SINCE YOU’RE HERE LET’S GET TO KNOW EACH OTHER A LITTLE

Find out more about our elopement day

eloping lets you start your life together as you mean to go on

Our rule in life and work: staying true to your values is the key to happiness.

As conservationists and wildlife lovers, our lives revolve around travel and adventure, so it made perfect sense to us that our wedding should, too. We didn’t want our day to be a performance, and we certainly didn’t want anything formal or to be the centre of attention.

Eloping (in Hawaii) meant we had a laid-back day in a place that is special to us both – and always will be.

ELOPING GIVES YOU THE PERFECT EXCUSE TO ESCAPE FAMILY POLITICS. TO HAVE YOUR DREAM DAY AND ENJOY AN INTIMATE EXPERIENCE TOGETHER.

“OLI AND STEPH ARE TWO OF THE NICEST HUMANS WE KNOW. WE FEEL SO GRATEFUL THAT ONE OF THE GREATEST GIFTS OF OUR WEDDING ADVENTURE WAS COMING HOME WITH TWO NEW FRIENDS!”

How to meet your soulmate in the world’s most remote location

Steph was working as a biologist for the British Antarctic Survey studying penguins, and albatross when Oli came to the island working on a conservation project. We bonded over our love of taking penguin pictures, and hiking in the mountains, and that was it! Watch the video to find out all the details.

We met back in 2015 on an island called South Georgia, in the sub-Antarctic. It’s uninhabited with huge 3000-metre mountains rising straight up from the sea and millions of penguins on its beaches. It’s as remote as you can get. After an 18-hour flight to the Falkland Islands, you still have a five-day voyage to the island. An unlikely place to meet your soulmate.

AS A COUPLE

We both spent over a decade working on conservation projects around the world, before becoming full-time elopement and couple photographers on the Isle of Skye. We’re still passionate about the environment and try to stay involved in conservation projects and photography when we can.

Our conservation photography has been featured online by National Geographic, the BBCSky News, the Times and the Guardian amongst others.

The great outdoors is our happy place. Between us we’ve spent over two years sleeping under canvas, five years in the Antarctic, and we’ve had our work featured in print in Trail and The Great Outdoors magazine. We’ve also been sponsored by the outdoor brand Terra Nova.

NO PATH IS OFF LIMITS

No climate’s too harsh and no adventures are too wild. We respect the natural world, and sustainability and Leaving No Trace are core values of our business. We support planting of trees (over 1250 so far!) and climate projects to balance our carbon footprint through Ecologi – to make our business as sustainable as we can.

We’re passionate about making sure your elopement will Leave no Trace and will give you a bespoke guide on how to do this when you book with us.

A FEW WORDS ABOUT US

Oli
(WRITTEN BY STEPH)

Oli is passionate about photography and constantly improving his work. He loves immersing himself in epic landscapes. From chasing tornados in the mid-West US, driving through the night across Norway to find the best Northern lights, filming humpback whales in Antarctica with his drone, to living at the South Pole in a tent for 3 months.

Mediocrity is never an option for Oli, he goes all in and works hard to be the best he can be. His sense of adventure and can-do attitude were some of the things that drew me to him in the first place.

Steph
(WRITTEN BY OLI)

Steph is so driven and dedicated to improving the natural world. She spent years working in conservation. She’s lived in a tent on an island in Alaska monitoring seabirds, spent three years on an Antarctic island hiking through blizzards and waist deep snow to check on penguin nests, and worked in South America, Africa and Asia to save the albatross from extinction.

Her passion for pushing on when the odds are stacked against her, are one of the reasons I love her. Steph is amazing at motivating people, she’s always positive, and the kind of person you want by your side. She is a natural leader, is fun to be around, and has time for everyone.

“Oli and Steph are the most authentic, kind, and interesting couple to hang out with. They are genuinely curious about who you are and have lots of their own adventures to share. We really felt that we were simply on a walk with old friends.”
