Vic & Rob's Mt Hotham Adventure Elopement
Updated: May 6, 2021
When hiking enthusiasts Vic and Rob invited me along to officiate their Adventure Elopement at Mt Hotham, I was absolutely pumped! Not only did I get to marry two of the sweetest souls, I got to spend the day hiking up to one of their favourite places and marry them overlooking the most incredible landscape imaginable. It was a 'pinch me now' kind of experience for all involved!
Vic and Rob spent the day together at their Airbnb accommodation in Bright, before their handpicked elopement team of Dan Brannan Photography, Apertura Wedding Films and myself, Shannon Jeans arrived.
After the most emotionally charged 'first look' just outside the cottage, we made our way up the mountain, stopping at a few sentimental spots along the way, before stepping onto the Razorback Trail and heading up to the almost unbelievable location that Vic and Rob had chosen to make things official.
There was no shortage of emotion during Vic and Rob's ceremony, complete with heartfelt vows and video messages from afar, and with everything 'heightened' by the sheer magnitude of the occasion combined with the epic location, it was truly an unforgettable experience.
My words just don't do justice. Dan's images do.

"Shannon was an absolute gem and made our elopement so intimate and perfect. From the first time we spoke to her till the very end, she was on board with every single idea we had - it's like she's your biggest fan!
Shan also makes a small donation each month to a cause that has impacted one of her couple. For Nov 2020, it happened to go towards my husbands workplace who runs a program that she deeply connected with.
Thank you Shan for your generosity, and for making our day so perfect." Vic & Rob
