What is an elopement?
Historically an Elopement was when a couple escaped from having a formal, traditional wedding by running away to get married in secret without telling their family. For the modern couple it has a different meaning. Our couples choose to travel somewhere special and scenic (like Cornwall) on their own, with or without telling anyone so they can enjoy the freedom of celebrating their wedding day how they want to. And we love helping them!
How much does it cost for an elopement?
The average wedding in the U.K costs on average around £32,000.
How much does it cost to elope UK?
The average wedding in the U.K costs on average around £32,000. The cost of an Elopement is so much less and varies depending on where you are going, what services you are using and what you choose to include in your day. The costs of the venue, dress, suit, flowers or your meal will be according to your budget, personal style and tastes. If you want to legalise your wedding you will need to have a simple “no-frills” legal signing appointment at your local Registry Office which can be before or after your ceremony with us. This usually costs in the region of £60. Check with your local office for details. If you have a wild Elopement with us, you won’t need to hire a venue unless you want to and Cornwall has a lovely selection of small venues that specialise in intimate Elopements and Small weddings in cornwall.
Can you get married on a beach in Cornwall?
Yes! If you are planning on having a Celebrant-led wedding ceremony, you will be able to have
your wedding anywhere, any place and any how you like.(see above answer)
and No! If you are wanting to have a legally binding marriage on the beach then you will need a Registrar and a licenced venue.
04. Why do people elope?
The most common reasons are no-stress, no-fuss, no family politics and obligations, more affordable and budget-friendly. But we have found the most important reason is that our couples get excited at crafting their own day according to their own values and beliefs. An Elopement that aligns with their future hopes, dreams, ethics and life goals. Our couples want an authentic, unique, personal experience that has none of the old outdated traditions that have no meaning for them. And we are so glad about that!

Poldark Elopemet in Cornwall
Bernice and Wade eloped to Cornwall from South Africa. “Poldark. I just wanted to be surrounded by majestic scenery, the beach and hair billowing in the wind aka Demelza. Haha. If I’d given Wade half a chance he would’ve probably arrived at the ceremony on horseback. Cornwall is the perfect combination of history and natural beauty that stirs my old soul”.
Emma & Dennis elope to Cornwall for their beautiful Cliff Elopement. “We chose Cornwall as we have really happy memories from lots of weekend breaks we’ve both taken there together, and we love being by the sea so it was the obvious choice for us”.
Lily & Alan celebrated their small intimate wedding at Boho Cornwall Elopements. ” We chose Cornwall because we have happy memories of times there. We love the atmosphere, the wildness and the romance of the place. It was a dramatic backdrop for our wedding”.
