Eloping to Malta

Elopement at Villa Bologna.


To many, the term “elope” still conjures images of hasty lovers stumbling into secret chapels, or budget careful couples looking to save a few pennies on the guest list. 

But elopements have changed..... 

Today, they have become an intimate alternative to a those traditional weddings, where the details matter less than the vows being exchanged. Eloping is an incredibly romantic and wild way for adventurous couples to profess their love in some of the most stunning romantic destinations. Villa Bologna and Mdina are perfect examples of romantic destinations within Malta.

Colleen & David, from the USA, love travel and chose the far away destination of Malta to have their marriage with the help of wedding planner Alexia Azzopardi from Wed in Malta. Both Americans had never visited Malta before and where drawn to the adventure of it as well as the beauty that awaited them.

The civil ceremony was set within the Baroque gardens of Villa Bologna in Attard. Alexia had another accompany her to act as another witness during the ceremony. As Colleen and David had a dinner reservations in the silent city of Mdina we met up within the city walls to capture some portraits of them in the medieval city walls.

Below are a few of the highlights from Colleen & David's elopement in Malta.
