Meg Courtney

Specialising in “Enchanted Elopements  & Adventure Weddings”, Meg has a wonderfully non-traditional take on wedding photography. She believes that the focus should not be on the centre pieces, the colour scheme or the table cloths, but on the promise that is being made to one another. She is passionate about shifting the focus away from the pinterest-obsessed world and back to the true meaning behind marriage: love and commitment. Meg says, “I believe you should write your own vows, and my idea of a perfect wedding day is a gown you love packed away in your backpack, a bouquet of fresh wildflowers picked from the side of the trail and the one you love walking beside you.”
