Today’s gorgeous elopement has all the makings of an ultra-romantic dreamscape: a 19th century train, a mystical mountain, friendly local animals, and one beautiful couple—all meeting in the midst of a low-hanging cloud. Honestly, you couldn’t plan a day like this! Manon + Romain wed in a civil ceremony and decided to elope after, with help from their planner, Stories, and photographer, Matthias Toth. Matthias offered the idea of La Rhune, a mountaintop in the Basque Country with a 360-degree view across Atlantic Ocean and Pyrenees. Everyone hopped aboard the Petit Train de la Rhune and when they arrived to the top, the clouds were a happy surprise!
Sometimes we forget the most important part about the wedding is to celebrate love—the love you share with your beloved. For us, the wedding is a wonderful commitment: the promise between two people to do their best to strengthen the magic of love! We were outside of time, in the middle of nowhere, at the top this La Rhune. This famous mountain of the Basque Country is precious to us and it finally married us for the rest of our life. We wanted something wild, natural and moody. It couldn’t have been more perfect: we were at in the middle of heavy clouds and in the middle of nowhere! What a crazy feeling to get married so close to the precipice with a few sheeps and pottok (the name for little local horses) as witnesses. A sweet day that Matthias Toth immortalized with the help of Stories. A month was long enough to prepare everything, choose the idyllic place, a good photographer, the dress, the hairdresser and then the make it the greatest day of our lives.
Now, let’s meet our sweet lovers on La Rhune!
*Sigh* so magical!
