Surprise! We Eloped ! Married !
Married by Amanda Knapton – Marriage Celebrant
It was 10 years ago today when this awesome loved up couple first met. They have shared a magical journey together being blessed with 3 gorgeous kids.
I first met this couple, a number of months ago, with a dream of a wedding and no date set. Then with careful planning, and an amazing bride ,she managed to pull off the most magical and perfect surprise elopement wedding ceremony for her Groom at Salmon Haul in South Cronulla.
Having been unsuccessful at pulling off a large and elaborate wedding, the bride decided to take matters into her own hands. She arranged a photographer to capture the family in their element on the edge of the cliffs in South Cronulla but secretly was planning her proposal.
At their favourite spot in South Cronulla, with the photographer watching on, was where the bride proposed to her already fiancé. She then told him that she had arranged their perfect wedding ceremony!
I have never seen a groom so excited and totally amazed at what his beautiful bride had organised and oozing with love for his family.

Their big Day
Their intimate wedding ceremony had all been pre-arranged by the bride with a little help of a couple of special friends. The groom arrived to Salmon Haul in Cronulla, with love and happiness radiating from him. The perfect spot had been lovingly decorated by his sister.
The bride, with their three gorgeous kids in tow, arrived to the man of her life. The five of them shared in the most intimate and loving ceremony with only their photographers watching on.
The celebrations didn’t end there – the bride still had a couple of more tricks up her sleeve. As the couple arrived to their favourite restaurant, their family were waiting for them, ready to surprise the groom and congratulate the happy couple.
Congratulations Santana & Steven – it was such a pleasure to get to know you and your family and it was such a privilege to share in such a magical day x
