Barcelona Elopement and Wedding Photographer Hannah Hutchins

Barcelona Elopement, Montseny Mountain | Alba & Jose

Just 1 hour outside of Barcelona city and you will find breathtaking undisturbed nature trails. For Alba and Jose’s elopement, we met at Montseny Mountain, and what an afternoon of magical weather it was!

The florals were so stunning, the tones perfectly matching the autumnal Catalonian mountain. The bouquet was created by Ambflors, a Sant Marti D’albars based wedding florist. Alba’s dress was by Blue Bride Atelier, a boutique bridal shop in the centre of Barcelona.

Winter weather can be temperamental in Barcelona and Northern Spain, but we were treated to the most atmospheric fog. We couldn’t have planned for a better afternoon!

If you are planning an elopement in Barcelona, be sure to check out my top ten things to consider at the end of this gallery!


  1. Book a photographer you love

    Whilst everyone’s idea of eloping is different, most couples tend to have only a couple of their closest friends and family present when eloping. If you want to create an intimate and unique atmosphere, one you will 100% want to remember, booking a photographer who you click with is super important when planning your elopement.

  2. Choose your dream location

    Your dream location may be in the middle of Vegas or at the top of a remote mountain in Spain. Sit down and brainstorm all your favourite places you have ever visited together and see if they could make a fantastic location for your elopement.

  3. Check local wedding laws and whether you need a marriage license

    This is such an important one! Not every country will legally allow you to marry without having a residents permit or passport. Check the local laws before you get your heart set on your dream elopement location.

  4. Include guests in your ceremony

    Just because you are eloping doesn’t mean you have to leave your favourite people off your elopement guest list! Don’t feel obligated or pressured to invite anyone you don’t want. Have your plans in place before the invites, so your wedding day stays uniquely about you and your partner, don’t plan around your guest’s preferences. 

  5. Prepare for all weather

    You never know what waterfall you may want to jump in spontaneously or what the sky might have in store for you. Make sure you have a few bags of clothes in your car, including jumpers and hats, if you are planning to elope in the winter.

  6. Snacks and water

    Especially if you are planning to elope at the top of a mountain, be sure to pack snacks and water. Mountain climbing is hard work! You want to stay hydrated and fresh so you can experience your elopement to the fullest. Even better, make a reservation at your favourite restaurant before or after your ceremony. Tell them it is your wedding day, so you get the best table!

  7. Handwritten vows

    Writing your vows is a unique way to express your love to your partner; these will be cherished forever.

  8. Flowers

    Wedding flowers are not only beautiful to look at and smell but form part of your outfit for your elopement day. Afterwards, why not preserve the bouquet preserving them in resin. There are some amazing artists out there who will do this for you.

  9. Ceremony length

    Elopements are all about YOU and how you want to do your wedding day. If you want your ceremony to be a short 10 minutes, plan for that. If you want it to be an hour, with music and readings, do it!

  10. Celebrate with a first dance

    First dances are super special. Just because you’re eloping, it doesn’t mean you have to miss this tradition out! Be it with your photographer capturing you or alone. This is a special moment. You will need to plan the music and who will bring a portable speaker.

Let’s create magic together!
