Tenerife Desert Elopement

Canary Islands Elopement in Tenerife

Maze and Joe decided to forego the traditional big wedding and instead opted for a more intimate experience! They chose to have a Tenerife elopement in the middle of the Spanish desert, located on the beautiful Canary Islands. The couple's unique and adventurous spirit was reflected in their choice of location for the ceremony: you can just see their souls lit up in our photos! The Teide desert provided a stunning backdrop for the exchange of vows. The natural beauty of the landscape, along with the time and freedom to explore, made for the most wonderful elopement adventure.

Sailboat Elopement Adventure

Elopement activity in Tenerife island

In addition to exploring the desert, Maze and Joe also wanted to get out on a boat for a fun day out exploring the island of Tenerife by sea! From the sparkling blue waters to the stunning cliffs and black sand beaches, we had the most incredible time on the water. I highly recommend booking an excursion or experience like this as a part of your elopement adventure! Not only will you get to see and explore more of the area, but you'll also have a blast making fun memories together! Whether it's on your ceremony day, before or after, make time in your schedule for activities (and be sure to include your photographer so you have it all documented!)
