Ready for an elopement like you’ve never seen before? From the bride’s wedding ensemble to the stunning Cornwall coastline, Ivana + Richard’s UK wedding portraits are truly so, so unique. Thanks to Slovakia-based Sona of Inspired by Love for sending these our way!

This bridal look, so daring and fun. The dress is by Janka Markova with a handpainted belt by indie artist Lucilak, and a modern headpiece (a little nod to traditional Slovak folk wedding headdresses) from costume designer Agniezska Osipa.

Restrictions actually caused these two to have their official ceremony in Northampton, rather than Land’s End, Cornwall, the seaside town they’d planned. Luckily, they were able to meet up with Sona and travel over to Cornwall the next day for a celebratory shoot!

Pop of red, anyone?

Cornwall county is known for its amazing beaches + scenic moors, so they made a trip out there and all stayed in a little B&B afterward. Sona says, I flew in on Saturday morning, they picked me up at the airport and we drove for about 5 hours (very funny and enjoyable 5 hours I must say, they are amazing) to probably one of the most photogenic parts of the UK—Cornwall. They got quickly changed into their wedding outfits and we ran up to the beautiful scenery to take some wedding portraits of the two of them.

The more adventurous elopements we see, the more we can totally understand someone taking the unconventional route. Congrats to Ivana and Richard!
