Brill Windmill Elopment - A modern love story - Poppy Carter Portraits

The Summer of 2020 will forever stay in our minds as one of huge uncertainty - cancelled plans and rearranged lives. But one thing that wasn't cancelled was love. This year Elopements and 'micro-weddings' are in. 30 guests doesn't mean you have to compromise on style or making your celebration any less perfect.

I wanted to create a shoot to inspire couples looking to put together their very own elopement and encourage you to break the rules, create your own traditions and just go with what feels right to you and your partner.

As always a huge thank you to my incredible team - this shoot was supposed to also be 'micro' and was thrown together pretty quickly but as always the outcome was sensational with such beautiful attention to detail from everyone.

I'm so thrilled this shoot will feature on Love My Dress soon.
