How to recreate this peak district elopement style
Peak District Elopements
Here’s what Helen Rose Photography told us about this Peak District Elopement:
“The Peak District became the UK’s first national park 70 years ago this year. Many come and enjoy the beautiful scenery, but I feel that it is incredibly under-utilized as a wedding destination. As we are seeing other UK locations grow in popularity with wild and wonderful micro-weddings, I have set out to prove that The Peak District is a brilliant option to cut down travel time for an alternative elopement! In this shoot, I wanted to showcase Chrome Hill, nicknamed ‘Dragons Back’, due to the peaks resembling the plates along the spine of a dragon.”
“What is great about elopements is that you cater them exactly to your tastes – they can be as adventurous or luxurious as you like. For instance, if you like to go climbing in the Peak District, you may choose to have your ceremony in a favourite spot and go for a climb before meeting loved ones for a micro-wedding breakfast. Or, if you prefer the idea of a secluded getaway with a hot tub, log burner, and Michelin star chef, then these options are readily available. The only thing that matters is getting married exactly the way you want to!”

Kiera and Sam tied the knot 5 months previously to this Peak District elopement shoot – Kiera popped her Wed2B wedding dress back on paired with a gorgeous fluffy cardigan for a more wintery look.
Jessica Ley Makeup decided on a very relaxed ‘English Rose’ look to compliment Kiera’s features and colouring. She used a combination of pinks on her eyes and kept her skin dewy and glowing. Chloe of Cheveux by C re-curled her already curly hair and pinned half of it back in a loose boho style. The look was perfectly finished with a celestial halo crown by The Handmade Tiara.
Sam complimented Kiera, the time of year and his surroundings in suit trousers, a white shirt, a tie and a black crew neck jumper, finished off with a black, woolen, knee-length trenchcoat.
Tracey of Campbells Flowers created the bouquet and buttonhole for this shoot, juxtaposing soft lilacs with pops of peach and yellow. The florals are soft and natural with lots of contrasting textures to make them pop.
