BoHo Elopement x Yulia and Ivan Q&A
Why did you decide to elope rather than go for a more traditional wedding?
Ivan and myself are a Russian couple living in the UK. Ivan proposed at the end of August and we planned a big party for our friends and family in May next year. In this country you need to plan weddings well in advance!! However, legally we wanted to get married earlier. We could have just gone to a nearby Town Hall in London, but we thought that we wanted something special for ourselves, to make the day memorable. That’s how an idea of an elopement emerged.
What made you choose BoHo Cornwall?
We always wanted to go to Cornwall for vacation, as we love wind, ocean, cliffs and fabulous views. And if you google “elope cornwall uk”, BoHo is literally on the first page!
What were the highlights of your elopement?
The venue is a highlight in itself, location is breathtaking, both the main house and the cottage were nicely decorated with candles and flowers, breakfast was delicious! And my bouquet was a masterpiece! Tom and Maya are wonderful hosts, extremely hospitable and friendly (I still think Tom is Bruce Springsteen’s cousin☺).
What will be your lasting memory?
Watching Star Wars with my by that time husband on the red sofa in Ochre cottage, eating delicious Cornish cheeses and drinking champagne, and all of that having an amazing view over the ocean ☺
What would your advice be to others planning an elopement?
Don’t plan, just go for it!
Looking back, would you change anything or do anything different?
I’d have used a professional hairstyle and make-up, but other than that it was a perfect weekend just for two of us!
