Whether your wedding day is a huge party, an intimate celebration or just the two of you in your favourite location – it’s still going to be one of the most important days of your lives.

      Many couples (myself included!) are choosing to have a small wedding. You might have had to scale down your guest list due to Covid restrictions or maybe you decided to have an intimate wedding from the start. In either case, it’s your day to remember, and you deserve to have the most amazing memories of it.

      Intimate Weddings and Elopements

      Make It Personal

      Your wedding day should be yours. The longer your guest list, the more limited you are by what you can do and where you can celebrate. By inviting just your closest circle you can really tailor your wedding day to be something you’ve always dreamt of. Make it unique and spend quality time with those people who really matter!

      Emotional Rollercoaster

      Intimate weddings are full of emotions! People are much more vulnerable and open to showing their feelings in smaller circles. That’s why first looks and intimate speeches are so amazing to photograph!

      Stress Free

      Big parties are a lot of fun but also inevitably a lot of stress. The fewer people you have involved, the fewer people you have to worry about and try to please. A wedding is a celebration of the two of you so keep your eye on the prize!

BrookLodge has an absolutely stunning space with a mirrored ceiling for a fresh organic meal, and their little chapel is perfect for a ceremony.
