The beautiful, intimate ceremony next to the beach at the Kempinski Hotel, The Palm, Dubai.

It's a privilege to witness any wedding but maybe more so for destination elopements were there is such a sense of intimacy. Andrea and Lars traveled from Sweden to have an intimate elopement in Dubai as part of a family holiday. The elopement came as a complete surprise to the three children with the celebrant Kerrie, letting the family know as they were playing on the beach. With just time to change clothes and have an exciting jump on the bed, Lars and the kids waited by the beach for Andrea to appear. Kerrie (Birds & Bees Celebrant) skillfully incorporated some Swedish traditions, with the more traditional exchange of rings, for a lovely intimate family celebration of love. After a sunset walk along the beach and a few photos, the family headed off for dinner together.
