Heather & Mike in Hope Town

I was lucky enough to be given the honour by Heather & Mike of photographing their elopement in the beautiful Hope Town, Abaco this month.

Initially, Heather and mike had planned their wedding to be just the two of them, hidden away on the tiny island of Elbow Cay. But… as with so many things in life, plans changed! In this case, they met, the day before, a group of Australians who were cruising the islands in their boat, and the two parties hit it off immediately!

And so, with their new friends as impromptu guests, the couple tied the knot on the balcony of their little rental cottage, overlooking the harbour on a perfect clear autumn day.

After the ceremony and an unexpected first dance, I was invited to join the couple and their friends for a wonderful celebration dinner at the Abaco inn. The perfect end to a wonderful day – thanks guys – I know this isn’t the last time our paths will cross!
