Everything was perfect even during a global pandemic!
Our elopement ended up being during the Covid-19 pandemic. Sharon took every precaution and was absolutely wonderful to work with, incredibly professional, reassuring, and flexible, even after one postponement and a downgrade in guests. The entire planning process was a breeze and every question we had was promptly answered.
Our tour of Banff was amazing and beautiful; Sharon made everything work somehow even though we ended up having to travel in separate vehicles to maintain social distancing! She was able to make our day incredibly special, full of optimism, and was prepared for anything.
Sharon went above and beyond and it’s clear that she absolutely loves what she does and it shows! I’ll be wishing to relive this day over and over for the rest of my life. 10/10 will recommend to everyone!Sent on 16/05/2020

We decided to elope in Banff for a December wedding. I contacted a few different companies but ended up going with Elope In Banff because Sharon made an effort to contact us right away and speak with us to find out what we want and answer all our questions. I wanted a stress free wedding and Sharon delivered that. A couple days before the wedding Covid cases were at an all time high and new restrictions were announced. Sharon called me right away to clarify that we were still good to go (2 days after our wedding, restaurants and salons would be shutting down for a month!)
The day before the wedding she gave us a tour around Banff to select where we want the ceremony and photos, she took us to see our flower bouquet and to meet the hair dresser (I highly recommend getting hair done.. I have short hair but the hair dresser was able to turn it into a glamorous low bun that lasted the entire day and night!)
Malcolm did our photos and made sure we felt relaxed and were able to enjoy every moment of our day while getting fantastic photos. He gave great instructions for how to pose (I was worried I would look awkward and not know what to do, but he guided us every step of the way!) The wind chill was really cold at times but Sharon was running in with a big fur coat, hand warmers and ear muffs in between shots.. she was fluffing out my dress and making sure I looked fabulous the entire time.
We got about 30 photos sent to us the next day so we could share with our family and friends right away. The photos are stunning and can't wait to see the rest. Thank you Sharon and Malcolm!Sent on 13/12/2020
