With a lot of famous (and less famous) locations, breathtaking views, and a big variety of activities to do, it’s no surprise that many couples are choosing our stunning region for their intimate elopement wedding. The Dolomites can be a busy place for eloping couples, tho. That’s why it’s even more important to go for more secluded elopement spots in the Dolomites, instead than going with the mainstream.

1) Privacy: Secluded elopement locations in the Dolomites provide a sense of privacy and intimacy for your special day
With the privacy and intimacy of a secluded spot for your elopement day, you’ll feel like you belong in no other place in this world, and can make it meaningfully yours forever. You might not say your vows at Seceda, but in other unique places to elope that mean so much more just to you.
Privacy and intimacy are crucial for elopement photography and your overyll elopement experience in the Dolomites, because they allow you to be fully present in the moment, without feeling self-conscious or on display or being interrupted by people passing by or shouting “CONGRATULAAAATIONSSS IS THAT A REAL WEDDING OMGGG 🤪🤪🙀🙀” to you all the time.
This will result in more cozy moments and emotionally powerful photographs and elopement experience, that truly capture your fun, messy and quirky essence.
2) Authenticity: By choosing an Intimate elopement location in the Dolomites, you can be deeply connected with your very own dreams, values and interests & boldly ignore what everyone else is doing or suggesting
This means you’ve got other unique places to elope than all the other people and another point of view, which makes you alternative and unique. An authentic elopement experience in a secluded elopement location, can reflect your values, personalities, and unique interests.
It absolutely makes the ceremony and celebration feel more authentic, genuine and meaningful to you by also giving you a blast of total freedom from whatever the other people do.
