Jane & Clive’s Romantic Elopement Wedding on Burgh Island

by Michelle

Elopement weddings are special, intimate occasions and it’s such a privilege for us to have Jane and Clive share their day with us.

Jane and Clive said their ‘I do’s’ at Burgh Island Hotel and it’s such a fitting, unique and magical place for a romantic elopement. Built in the style of a shining white ocean liner, moored on its own tidal island, surrounded by golden beaches and sparkling sea, Burgh Island Hotel oozes 1930’s glitz and glamour. Such a fabulous setting for a stylish couple.

Jane and Clive wrote exchanged their own personal wedding vows in a heartfelt ceremony, with the sophisticated art deco backdrop providing a timeless quality to the proceedings.

Heading outside, Jane and Clive had the stunning South Devon coastline, bathed in summer sunshine as the backdrop for more gorgeous photos.


We absolutely love all the details of Jane and Clive’s day from Jane’s exquisite butterfly and dragon fly gold head dress to their charming art deco cake which echoed the mood of their venue perfectly.
