Summer Elopements + Micro Weddings // with Elope Byron Bay

Here in Byron Bay, it definitely feels like summer is coming! These recent warm days have us dreaming of beautiful summer elopements. We at Figtree Wedding Photography seriously love being a part of and photographing our couples elopements and intimate wedding stories.

Choosing an elopement or micro wedding gives you freedom to focus on what’s really important to you. It means you can create a beautiful celebration of love without all of the additional elements of a wedding. This can also mean it’s a little lighter on the bank account!

Imagine getting married on a cliff overlooking the ocean, barefoot on a secret beach, hidden in a forest or overlooking stunning hinterland views. When eloping you really have endless flexibility with your ceremony space and locations for your photos.

When creating this blog, we thought we’d better involve the best in the elopement biz! So we had a chat with the lovely Emily from Elope Byron Bay to help give our couples some more information about elopements and micro weddings.


A little bit of info about Elope Byron Bay

Elope Byron Bay, little sister to Byron Bay Weddings, was created to assist couples with their traditional elopements. Now, a few years on, we’ve grown and adapted to accomodate the very popular trend of micro weddings, with beautiful styling, offering a truly unique experience.

We are crazy lucky to have worked on so many EPIC elopements and micro weddings this season. It’s been great to shake things up a little, step out of the box and redefine the perception of elopements and small weddings… We are fully fledged planners, stylists and coordinators leading the industry, curating a day, our clients love story, that is nothing short of magic. It’s our heart and soul, living it, breathing it, each and every day…

We’re big believers in creating memorable celebrations that reflect who our clients are as a couple. Whether it be a traditional elopement or a micro wedding, we work very closely with our clients to handcraft their brief and bring the visions of their day to life. We bring passion, flair and attention to detail through each and every element.

There is something so special about these celebrations. Imagine a stunning wedding, but on a more intimate level allowing our clients to truly take in what the day is all about. And with access to some of the region’s most exclusive venues and vendors, we are the team to make it happen.


Reasons why eloping in Byron Bay this summer is the best idea ever!

Summer in the Byron Shire is a glorious time of year. There is such an exciting, festive vibe in the air that can only be felt in a few special towns, so we are so lucky to have the magic.

Think sun-shiney days, balmy evenings beneath the stars, and days spent soaking up the vitamin-D with a drink in hand on our pristine beaches.


Words of wisdom and tips for couples thinking of eloping!

It’s your day so do it how you want! Regardless of it being just the two of you, or if you are planning to invite a handful of your nearest and dearest. Have a long lunch, a sunset ceremony, request your favourite dish on the menu, get a cake or don’t.

There aren’t any rules aside from you having the day you have always dreamed of. Don’t let the little love bubble diminish by getting caught up in ‘normal wedding protocols’.

It’s such an exciting time so go for it!
