A bespoke wedding/vow renewal ceremony, some spectacular photos – and nothing more?

A meaningful, intimate and affordable alternative to full day weddings?

An elopement to a magical place – just the two of you?

A real adventure in BudapestHungary?

We think so!

Eloping is not an uncommon practice or taboo these days. In fact, some couples even choose romantic places or interesting  destinations to elope to, say their vows, exchange the rings and forget all the other hassle that goes with planning a full wedding day. To elope may also suggest that the two of you just run to the courthouse in your home country to sign the official wedding papers there with minimum effort, then  go on your „secret” trip and have a magical symbolic wedding ceremony or renewal – all by yourselves or in front of your two witnesses and maybe a very few chosen ones.

 But, see, that is the point, exactly. All of us have been dreaming about real adventures, because that is Life, those memories will be with us for the rest of our lives. Agree?

Elope to Budapest, Hungary – and we’ll be here to assist you!

With more than a decade of experience with international weddings – we created a team of wedding professionals with the aim of devising and leading sublime ceremonies – Sunrise Elopements.

As a little team, we are all dedicated and make it our business to keep your symbolic destination wedding ceremony intimate, one-of-a-kind and truly unforgettable.
