Australian Outback Elopement Wedding | Rach & Jed

Rach & Jed held a two-day Australian outback elopement adventure at El Questro Station, in the Kimberley region of Outback Australia. El Questro is a 1.5 hour drive from Kununurra airport and is a great base for exploring different locations and activities. The colour of the soil and landscape here is unlike anywhere else I’ve seen in Australia.

On the day of Rach & Jed’s wedding, we woke early and watched the sunrise at Saddleback Ridge. It was one of the most vibrant sunrises I had seen! Later in the afternoon, they held their small and intimate ceremony at Pigeon hole lookout with their parents. Rach & Jed wanted to incorporate their parents in the ceremony by forming a circle and having everyone contribute their own words and advice on life and marriage.

We then drove around the dusty red roads until sunset, enjoying the beautiful scenery of the Kimberley without anyone else around. Rach’s dress was converted in red dust by the end of the day – the perfect sign that you’ve had an epic day.

The following morning at Emma Gorge, El Questro

The following morning we hiked to the Emma Gorge waterfall and arrived without crossing paths with another person. As we finished up, a crowd of visitors had reached the waterfall as well and cheered us on as we finished taking photos. Rach & Jed finished off the morning with breakfast at their camping site, with their “Just Married” bunting hanging up proudly. To me, it seemed like the perfect way to finish off their two-day celebration.
