Lanzarote Wedding Planners Offer Elopement Option

If you have ever promised your love the moon, you can now make good on your word with a wedding ceremony set in the lunar-like landscape of Lanzarote.

Offering dollar-saving destination I do’s, Weddings To Envy has launched an Elope in Glamour option for couples who plan to invite groups as small as four to six to witness their exchange of vows.

Brides and grooms have a number of possible nuptial sites from which to choose, starting with one of the island’s bodegas, where couples can stand in a courtyard beneath the sheltering branches of Eucalyptus trees as Spanish guitarists provide the soundtrack to their first moments together as husband and wife. Guests can drink toasts by candlelight in a vaulted volcanic rock restaurant, then trip the light fantastic in the twinkling light of hovering stars.

For an I do that leaves an impression, couples can walk toward their future on the beach. Lanzarote has recently won its ninth consecutive prize as the Irish Travel Industry Awards for Best Beach Destination.

For truly volcanic vows, couples can choose to wed deep below the surface of the earth in the world’s longest subterranean lava tube.

Lovebirds who feel like they are walking on a cloud will be in seventh heaven when they tie the knot at the top of a cliff face overlooking the Atlantic Ocean.

A geographic neighbor to Lanzarote, the island of Fuerteventura. The second largest of the Canary Islands is home to five luxury resort hotels as well as Cortijos and Bodegas.

Brides and grooms can begin their marriage in movie star style at the former home of Omar Sharif. Built into the side of a volcanic hill, LagOmar offers a number of locations where lovebirds can pledge their devotion, including the birds’ cage room, poolside or within the house itself.

Soul mates can celebrate a love in full bloom in the Jardin de Cactus,which was the final work of Canadian architect, artist and landscaper Cesar Manrique, who designed Omar Sharif’s home.

The Elope in Glamour option, which starts at €2,800, provides pairs with a private hairstylist, make-up artist, driver and professional photographer.
